Connaught Place

This is a view of Connaught Place atop a building. The market is a legacy of the Britishers to the Delhites. Its vintage architecture houses the most contemporary Indian and International brands. Its a must visit place for everyone coming to Delhi.

Poor-Man's Convertible

These are the best people I have ever met. They are smiling most of the times. Make travelling short distances a pleasure ride. Travelling on these cycle-rickshaws makes me feel like I am aboard a convertible... A poor-man's convertible is a cycle rickshaw. What a profound thought... hmmm hehehe. Next time you want a rickshaw please don't bargain with them. These men deserve every rupee they demand.

SMS Protest

SMS language being used in a protest organised by the employees of All India Radio. India under the wraps of globalisation.

Nap time

I caught these ladies in a candid moment as they were catching a nap on a hot summer afternoon in the gardens of All India Radio. I really wish that I could, for at least once in this lifetime, have the pleasure for sleeping in the sun :-)

Circular spectacle

This is the AIMS flyover captured from a moving Blueline Bus (public transport) by yours truly. Everyday I go to office by crossing the flyover and every day the beauty and the engineering magnificence gets to me. The rash driving of the Blueline bus-drivers almost makes me feel like I am participating in a Formula 1 Racing event.

Books/Magazines on the Roadside

The Book-Magazine vendor who offers the treasures of the literati world on bargain prices. The assortment of books, magazines and second hand materials this man has in store can put book-shops to shame. Next time you are in Delhi hunt for these bargain book/magazine selling vendors that set stalls on the roadside.

CNG Autorickshaw

CNG autorickshaws that make sure that Delhi moves around in style. You haggle with them, shout at them but cannot live without them - the quintessential Autorickshaw. The second photo is of a saying in Hindi which means "Please keep your feet down".

Happy Holi

Boys enjoying the festivities of Holi. A colorful festival that welcomes spring in India.
A Holi wish to all the bloggers:
A splash of red I send for you,
A tinge of blue to cool the hue,
A rush of green for warmth and zest,
Though far away, I send my best.

Illuminating the Dark

A man trying to brighten his life by working with lights during night. It could not have been more ironical. Delhi life can be beautiful and thought provoking at the same time.

Night Vision

Delhi at night. These photos are taken from the fifth floor of All India Radio's New Broadcasting House. The camera in my phone could not do justice to how beautiful the view looked - the Parliament, the North Block and numerous cars and buses going by. Hope this photo gives you an idea. The breeze blowing through my hair was an advantge that the photos could not capture.

Elephant Poop

This is a poster I spotted in Dilli Haat a few months back. I was stuck in traffic for an hour in the evening while coming back today. So I thought I should look in my photo bank to come up with today's entry. Hope it makes you realise the importance of S**T in life. :-)

Beat the Heat --- Delhi Summers

Even before we could bid farewell to the cold Winter and start enjoying Spring, the deadly, scorching summers are here. And this is how the Delhi junta maintains its cool in the hot summers. Happy summers to Delhites... Lets pray we survive this one too :-)

Cars n Concrete

The concrete jungle with splashes of greenery here n there. This too is my Delhi. Its not just about flowers and colours and beautiful skies, the city works and moves and sadly enough progresses by killing the trees. Cars are increasing by the minute and spaces on roads decreasing at the same speed.

Tughlaq Road Round-About

The best thing about Delhi are her round-abouts. I have had a great time admiring them from cars/buses/autorickshaws. This time I thought I should walk across one and capture this round about at the Tughlaq cross-sections in its full bloom. The thing that saddens me is that the Metro work (though very essential) might walk all over this round-about very soon. That is probably the reason I took a detour to capture it forever and preserve it till eternity. Hopefully my children will like the photos and the story behind it one fine day.

Raisina Hills

The Raisina Hills from the bus stop at the time of sunset. Long distance, multi colour skies that I tried to capture.

Delhi Metro

Delhi Metro, a revolution in the city. I can say that it has not only transformed the transit system but also the attitudes of the people on board. It is boon. Thanks Mr. E. Sreedharam. :-)

Delhi in full bloom

My city in full bloom! Delhi is full of colours. You just need to open your eyes to see them. I see flowers and trees playing a riot of colours. Happy Spring Delhi-Lovers!

India Gate

I was inspired by Eric and his blog Paris Daily Photo, to start this photo blog. I hope to capture Delhi in my own way through my cell phone camera and present to you my city, my Delhi :-)

This monument, India Gate, is a symbol of Delhi for me. I have fond memories of this place. If you are a Delhite, I am sure you have enjoyed ice-cream here. If you are not from Delhi but planning to visit the city, make sure you go to India Gate in the late evening and binge on tea, chaat (snacks) and candy floss. And don't forget to play with numerous balloons available there.
