I am a true Delhite from heart and from soul. There is no place better than Delhi. I have been born and brought up here and I have never hesitated in saying that Delhi is my home, I have been to other places but Delhi is where I want to be all my life. (PS by Delhi I mean the NCR as well… Noida and Gurgoan)
5 things I love about Delhi
- The Street food: Yum, just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Hot steaming momos with the chilly sauce from numerous Chinese vans. Chicken rolls at Khan Chachas. Maggi at Tom Uncle, DU. Bombay bhel at South Ex. Banta stalls found at almost all markets. Pav Bhaji at Rajori. Do I even have to say anymore. N yes the Gol gappas, how could I forget them. N also the tikki from BTW, Netaji Subhash Place. OMG, the list it endless. And I know I would keep going on and on about it so I better move to the next thing.
- The Nightlife: Manre, Elevates, Fbar and Aura are some of my favorites. Getting tipsy and sneaking back to a friend’s home always pumps up my spirit.
- Flea markets: Sarojini Nagar market, Janpath, Lajpat Nagar I love them love them love them. Hanging out with my friends, looking for cheap bargains, and bargaining with the shopkeepers to reduce the price (I am really bad at that, so I prefer going there with a friend who is good at bargaining)
- The Hangouts: Delhi Haat, CP, GK 1, Saket. Just strolling along the lanes doing nothing, window shopping and occasional shopping. My fav place is Delhi Haat.
- The Malls and Movie halls: The malls and movie halls have now over crowded the city in a good way. There are four good movie falls about two kilometers or maybe three from where I live. Nothing beats the blues more than catching a movie at a movie hall. And even better is the careless stroll inside the mall after the movie is over. I at times enjoy watching movies on my own, though my friends and family fail to understand why, and so do I.
- The heat and cold: I hate the extreme winters cause I hate wearing sweaters. The scorching heat in the summer just gets on to my head. I love rains though, it gets muddy, but I still love them.
- The auto walas: They never fail to get on my nerves. Especially if I have to travel to an NCR from Delhi.
- The traffic: Everywhere I look, there are flyovers under construction. One is over the construction for other one starts. And the traffic jams caused due to them just sucks.
- The ‘under the table’ cops: If you ask me I haven’t met a single person who has never bribed a cop. Everyday I see atleast one cop without helmet going from the wrong side. So much for the law makers.
- The beggars: they should be called ‘the buggers’. They are a big nuisance in city.
"The 67 ft statue was to be erected as a tribute in a film sequence by a Bollywood director. But the installation was halted after protests from members of the nationalist BJP party who claimed it "hurt Hindu sentiment".
Activists in Udupi, near Bangalore, told the director, Hemant Hegde, that they would not allow the statue because Chaplin was a Christian, and that any statue would have to honour the Hindu guru Swami Vivekananda instead." (Via Telegraph)
"The Chaplin sculpture, which would have shown him in his baggy trousers and bowler hat, was being built at a cost of about 3.5 million rupees (£48,600) near the town of Udupi, the site of several important Hindu temples. It was to form part of a set for a dance routine in a film but work ground to a halt when Hindu activists chased the workers away and buried the materials." (Via Timesonline)
"Meanwhile film director Hemanth Hegde told CNN-IBN that he had the clearance from the Tourism department. The objections to a christians statue near a temple may force him to shift the location to Karwar. "They said we can't see Chaplin's statue and then go the temple, I asked why, they said because he is Christian. I have seen Om beach at Gokaran and a beach at Karawar and I will finalise one of them for the shoot," said Hegde.
However, the state Home Minister Dr V S Acharya is against it. "There's no place for all statues like that and it will be a problem till the picture is over," said state Acharya. Clearly, there is no place for Hollywood's renowned comedians statue in Karnataka." (Via IBNLIVE)
My thoughts: Comeon people it is just a statue of a great comedian, he aint hurting anyone and I guess he never did. I loved Charlie Chaplin as a kid and am sure that generations to come will love him too. And clearly people who say there is no place for Charlie should rethink their own religious beliefs. And people who say that they can't see Charlie's statue and go to the temple should stop looking at themselves in the mirror before going to the temple. Charlie you were/are/will be a hero with or without a statue.
I am not much of a Limca girl but I simply adore this ad/song :) makes me feel lovey-dovey every time.

Getting married is like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that.
At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger??" The other replied, "Yes, I am. I married the wrong man."
Before a man is married, he is incomplete. Then when he is married, he is finished.
Marriage is an institution in which a man losses his bachelor's degree and the woman gets her master's status.
A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married??" And the father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying for it."
Young son : "Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa, a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?"
Dad : "That happens in most countries son."
Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married, and then it was too late."
A happy marriage is a matter of give and take; the husband gives and the wife takes
When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy, we wonder why. Affair ?
In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.
After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when I married you." And the Husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't notice it."
A man inserted an 'ad' in the classified : "Wife wanted". The next day, he received hundreds letters. They all said the same thing "You can have mine."
When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing : either the car is new or his wife is new.
A woman was telling her friend : "It is I who made my husband a millionaire."
"And what was he before you married him?" the friend asked. The woman replied, "A Billionaire."
