You very well know that Delhi, the capital of India is “Dilwalo ka Shere” Here we get you 7 reasons to visit Delhi, if you have not already.
You cannot simply live in Delhi without enjoying the mouth watering dishes it has to offer. The food literally comes to you on a handcart so you don’t really need to move a lot for the calories- and that’s a good thing. Kebabs are spread through the city- be it a party or a restaurant like Colonel’s Kebabs in Defence Colony Market, Kebabs are everywhere and they are brilliant. And don’t even make me start about Paranthe vali gali!
2. THE BRILLIANT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
If you are in Delhi then shopping should be the least of your worries because shopping here is not a task, it is an experience. You can literally dig up deep and find anything in here- whatever might your budget be. And honestly, replacement to Sarojni Nagar hasn’t been found for people like me- basically, the ones with no money. Well, if you are a ‘firang’ then get ready to be scammed by the over smart shopkeepers- because again, shopping in Delhi is an art and we Delhiites excel at it.
3. THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE
Even we, the ones who opened our eyes for the first time in Delhi, haven’t seen the complete Delhi. It is an absolute treat to travel in Delhi because the monuments and places to hang out never ends. Talk about Humayun’s Tomb- the monument that is almost the same as Taj Mahal and just as magnificent or Qutub Minar, the tower that stands tall as a marker in Delhi; there’s a lot to see and not enough time. Even if you visit every monument in here, you can’t be relaxed because Old Delhi would be just as much fun.
4. ONE OF THE BEST THINGS – DELHI METRO
I know, it gets a bit messy sometimes during the peak hours- believe me, I had to stand for thirty minutes with an old man who had his hand rested on my shoulders for the whole trip and I don’t even want to get into the part where he started singing some cheeky songs. Moving on, it can be a difficult ride but sometimes, the only way to get your mind off the things that don’t matter is sitting in peace amongst so many strangers with your headphones on or a book in your hand. Believe me riding a metro is one of the best things you are going to do in Delhi.
5. HKV- ENOUGHT SAID!!
Well, if you want to hang out with some friends then maybe Hauz Khas Village is going to be on your list if you are a Delhiite. You can simply go to some of the expensive clubs or go for the cheaper bars. If not them, you can simply chill in the Hauz Khas Fort with some lemon soda. It is the ultimate party destination and I always hang out there- yes, I don’t have any life.
6. DELHI HAS THE BEST WEDDINGS
You have missed all the fun if you haven’t attended a Delhi marriage- please get on some decent clothes and crash a wedding if you never have- I insist. Also, everyone in a marriage won’t be affected if they catch you crashing a wedding because a marriage in Delhi is a dull affair if the baratis are below 500 in number. What are you waiting for? Go crash a wedding.
7. FINALLY, DELHI HAS A VARIETY OF AMAZING PEOPLE!
Keeping aside, “Tu jaanta hai mera baap kaun hai?” we literally have a thousand types of people in Delhi. It is a mixture of people from all around the country and yes, India is a big country with a lot of people. You can literally bump into a person and then the other second, you guys would be best of buddies; Delhi. Yes, we have guys who put on Facebook status like “Daddy ki kamai, Hunny ne udai! YO!” but if you are keen enough to search then you would surely see the amazing people that Delhi shelters.
So, welcome to the roller coaster known as Delhi. We would have advised you to fasten your seat-belts but they were never installed- thank you, Hunny. If you like to live a life full of surprises and fun then maybe Delhi is your place. Yes, we have our bad days and we fall most of the times but again, who is perfect? But you know what? Delhi has always been tackling with problems and will continue to do so- you know why? Because we are the land of JUGAAD and hell yeah, we are amazing!
