Delhi Dwellings

Was in the capital city yesterday.

Was surprised to see how hot it was already. It has also joined the other Indian cities with water problems/ scarcity, at least this summer.

The hoardings are far fewer than in Chennai or Mumbai.

This is the only place where I saw accidents on flyovers- autos have rammed into the boundary walls of the flyovers!!

Ate in a restaurant called Chor Bazar, near Mc Doanlds, Noida. Chaat was good, dessert bad. Interesting choice of side dishes - bitter gourd and raw jackfruit were there apart from the omnipresent paneer.

I bought nine outfits for Anushka in Lajpat Nagar market for a steal, in fifteen minutes flat.

It reminds me a lot of a hotter- larger Blore. I cannot pin down why. Any help?

You didn't call. You were in Noida, which is 15 mins from my place. You didn't know that of course, but you didn't call. Did you get my email with my numbers??

Yes, Delhi is HOT HOT HOT. I am dreading May/June. It's hot and we have power shortage. But we are considering selling electricity to Mumbai. Are we not generous???
Delhi, a hotter larger B'lore. Maybe coz its a cosmopolitan in the real sense-lots of different cultures, languages; similar pace of life (unlike Mumbai) and the traffic situation (tho its improved a great deal in Delhi). Last I was in B'lore was 3 years ago, so I may be totally wrong.

9 outfits in 15 mins ... some kind of a record that is. I take 15+ mins to pick just one.
