Let’s Begin the Journey
Well, I’m cent percent agree with this quote from Delhi-6 Hindi movie. Delhi is not just a city instead, it’s a gathering and celebration.
So yeah! I’m back to Indore after having a peaceful and the most wondrous journey ever in my life. It was my first time that there was no one with me. And that’s the most beautiful part of this journey.
You know, the more solo traveling you do, the more confident you become. It’s been quite a while that I’ve spent most of the years of life in Mumbai. But I was always afraid of traveling via Mumbai local trains alone. It is because I was always surrounded with, at least one person with me. And also we always take taxis for going anywhere.
So the chances of taking a risk in traveling in locals become less. Though, I got lots of chance in Delhi to explore the city.
So this post will not be about the reviews of places to visit or places to eat. Instead, I’ll be elaborating about the good and the worst part of the city.
Dramatic Entry In Delhi
My entry was mind boggling in the capital. Since, I was going to meet my cutest guide, a pathfinder, my company but on top of it, my companion. ☺ She’s none other than Shreya. You all must have seen her with our Unconditional Love Series. She was the one who woke up early in the morning to pick me up on station, actually she didn’t even sleep in the night before. 😂
So we had this dramatic meeting in between the railway station and metro station after an hour of searching each other. 😂😂😂 Delhi is one of the busiest stations in the nation. But we had gone crazy after that. ;)😂
How our rickshaw took us somewhere else and we just paid him a little and went away from there. We escaped from there. Oh my God! It was a great fun. 😂😂
In our next meeting after having done with our breakfast, we went to Connaught Place. It is a place which doesn’t seem exist in India. It feels you’ve entered into another country. It’s white everywhere.
Shreya and I then headed towards this Prachin Hanuman Mandir, we felt more energetic for our next point.
There I first time came to know about this new thing called Kachori-Sabji. I mean, really? Who eats that? We took a plate and finished it anyhow. Since we were hungry by then. 😂😂😂
Bangla Sahib Gurudwara
Then comes India’s second biggest Gurudwara after Golden temple of Amritsar. It was Bangla Sahib Gurudwara. We spent a good time listening to Gurbani while taking so many photos of ourselves and the scenarios around the Gurudwara. 😀
Karol Bagh, I’ve only heard about this. Shreya took me there and we had great fun in the local markets. People are running here and there. But all we could do was laughing out loud by cracking jokes. (at times on others😂)
We had momos and Gol Gappa there. Hahah! I laughed hard when I heard this term, Gol Gappa. Because here in Indore, it’s normally known as Pani Puri. One more thing is that, one can’t find street food at the end of streets. In Indore, you’ll only find food, food, and food.
Anyways, it was delicious. We headed towards Chhole Kulche stall. Agh! It was not that good. Shreya, you’re right now even I feel the same. 😂😂😂
We now headed towards our places. We were happy that we live very near by. Just a street away. 😂😂
Another great day comes…
In the onset of next day, on September 10, 2016 we roamed around Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodi Garden, Chandni Chowk etc. We, in between, ate a lot of stuff such as burgers, lassi, fruits, roohafza and what not. That’s the beauty of street food that you can explore more and more.
Now, it was a time to get inside one of the biggest mosques in India, Jama Masjid. Hahaha! Shreya and I actually looked like Muslims. Since I have a great Beard which already makes me one of them and Shreya tied her scarf as her hijab. 😂😂
We almost sat on each and every time of Rickshaws of Delhi. Cycle rickshaw was one of them. I want to thank that chacha for clicking Shreya and my picture. Oh! A beautiful picture. 😘
Weirdest place? Hauj Khaz Village for sure!
Now it was a time to reach that place where almost all of you, blogging family and my contacts (Shreya’s too😂) advised. Hauj Khaz Village. Oh my God! It was one of the weirdest places we’ve been to. I don’t understand one thing, why are people being so pretentious there. Hahaha! And the irony was people can’t even speak proper Hindi and convincing customers in English. Hahaha!! I should not disrespect anyone’s feelings. The only thing is we could enjoy more in day light than jumping in the night after boozing and smoking. 🙂
Shreya and I left this weird place within 5 minutes. 😂😂😂
We roamed around together till last minute. But I don’t want you all to get bored. I’ll be sharing them some other day. 😅
Now come to the backbiting part. 😂😂😂
So these are my observations and things which I have seen in people. These all are my observations, I might be completely right or completely wrong. Please don’t take it seriously. 🙂
Delhities Are Obsessed With Movies
While Shreya and I traveling from one station to another, I observed so many times that men/women/kids everyone is holding their phone in one hand, plugged headphones and face downward. When I keenly look at the screen I found they are so obsessed with movies that they are watching it here. We laughed hard. Lol!!
Usually, people go outside to see what’s happening in the world, around them, they see the reality of their surroundings. But the bitter truth is nobody gives a fuck about anyone. Woah!😂
Delhi is full of foreigners
Like I have written in my last post on Solo traveling I’ve been to major states of India. But when I entered into the territory of Delhi I found there are so many foreigners. I mean, I could see people across the world. Once I was traveling from Karol Bagh to Green Park, I found few bunch of people who looked like Afghanistani. They suddenly remind me of my all-time favourite book, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Hahah!
And the major part of North Indians stays there. Every other girl/guy was a north Indian. 😉
Addiction Of Cigarettes and liquor
No matter, there is a guy or girl, every single person(I mean, most of them) smoke up in Delhi. The thing is they are not consuming tobacco for just having fun with the smoke. You know, how kids do by making rings with the smoke. Instead, everyone is addicted to smoking.
I was at Connaught Place at around 9 pm and I found women dressed up properly, neatly and sitting on the road and just smoking. Woah!! Well, I completely believe it’s their choice but I wonder how long they would survive. What could be happened if tomorrow they don’t get it. God bless the smoke!
No tamiz, No lehza(Disrespectful tones in girls)
So, we were at Chandni Chowk now. Shreya and I were enjoying our plate of Momos. When I get back to pay, I found this girl who was like, “BHAIYA YEH LO PAISE. 1 PLATE KE KAATO AUR EK PACK KARDO. SAMAJ AA RAHA HAIN KUCH.” You must have guessed with the capital letter what I’m trying to show here. The aggression she had, I mean really? Do you really need to be this harsh with the vendor? Can’t you just say it with your so-called attitude?
Some girls really need personality development classes there. They are still in their adolescents.
Some lingo Words of Delhi –
Ok. So this is probably the most frequent word I’ve heard in Delhi. People are so obsessed with the word Bhenchod that each and every sentence has to have this word. Else the sentence is incomplete. The word self-says a lot about the attitude of the other person. You can judge a person just by listening to the tone of Bhenchod he/she is using. Yes, you read it write. Girls/Women are obsessed too with Bhenchod.
Following are the live examples I’ve observed in people when they say a word Bhenchod –
Bhenchod aaj to mara wo mere haath se!
Bhenchod, joint(mixture of cigarette and ash) banade cigarette nahi hain.
Fuck yourself, bhenchod !
Bhenchod gan*d fatt gayi!
Bhenchod sab khatam ho gaya!
Bhenchod, bol diyo mene mangwai cigarette!
- And of course, Delhities never forget to party. This word will be used there too. How?
(Please don’t get offended, this is the reality I’ve observed in the capital.)
I mean really! This word again reminded me of one of the most spoken abuses in India. 😂 But I’m not going to utter it. Since it has nothing to do with it.
Bhasad simply means an illogical act or a problem.
Like for examples-
1) Bhai bhasad ho gayi aaj to!
2) Uski speech ne to bhasad macha di bc!
3) Aaj to mausam bhasad ho rakha hain
And there are so many of them. 😂
Delhi is full of mysteries.. isn’t it?😂😂
There are more such words you can search on the Internet. 😀
So all and all it was great trip. I want to thank each and every one who have advised me to visit the places and for their wishes. Thank you so much. 🙂
I’m home now. Again writing day in day out for me. For you. For us. Thank you for always being a great reader to my succcccccccchhhhhhhhhh long blog posts. 😀
Thanks to my friend Aman and his flatmates, for staying me up in flat.
There are few more photos which Shreya and I had clicked. Would love to share with you all. :
Thanks for reading:)
