A while ago I did a guest post for one of my fellow bloggers. This post is from him about his home town in Delhi. His blog is about his life in India and the things he does and sees. You can be sure of a very interesting read, so do check it out.
I was wondering for many days about what I should write for my guest post and since Gill has written a brilliant post for my blog, I was a little nervous. I have visited limited places till now and most of my posts in my blog are about Delhi because that’s where I live and it is also the central point of my blog.
As I started to ponder about what will be the best thing I could write about, the answer was simple, it should be about Delhi. Since Delhi has so many beautiful places to see it would be a unfair to post about few things only. So,I thought the best thing would be able to take you through the journey which I do most of the days. A typical Delhi journey. This journey will give you a feel and knowledge about the normal daily life in the streets of Delhi. I have this habit of taking random pictures and like street photography a lot because it allows you to capture raw moments. You can capture unknown people and some really amazing moments.
This picture shows the first place where I visit the everyday. This is the road adjoining the metro station. This picture has been taken by me when I was standing on the foot-over bridge which connects the parking with the metro station.
View from the metro is always wonderful. I like standing on one side of the metro and looking outside. The people moving in cars have no idea that we are moving in this metro though we are able to see them. I always wonder where these cars are going? Where are these people going? Whom do they want to meet? Every moment you travel, you see so many people travelling simultaneously and sometimes it makes me feel really wonderful to be part of all this.
Some days I used to come with my father to this market. This market is not so popular but they have some really nice sweet shops. I like the sweets here. They have their unique taste. The sunlight and the trees creates a peaceful atmosphere.
While going to my college I used to leave my metro at this place (station) and take the bus from here. This is one the busiest roads in Delhi and most of the time it faces traffic jams. There is nothing worse than being struck in the traffic that in the morning, one feels the whole day is wasted. You can see that this is not a very wide road but so many vehicles are moving simultaneously here.
I thought you won’t believe about the crowd and the traffic so I’m posting this picture. That’s what it looks like when the crowd fills the road. Buses and people are everywhere, it’s morning time and everybody is rushing to their work. Though there is a little chaos but that’s the life of city. This fast moving life makes this city the place it is and as they say “DELHI MERI JAAN”. 🙂 😀
