Pictures of Delhi - Its tough to get bored here!

I have said this before and I’ll say it now, ‘It’s very tough to get bored in Delhi’. The crowd, the sound and the smell which blends perfectly with the flamboyant lifestyle of the locals and the diverse ethnicity and the culture makes Delhi so unique. Compare to other western cities, Delhi is at least 5 steps behind major Western cities in terms of infrastructure, entertainment, economy and so on. But what we have over here is natural entertainment, which you will find it everywhere.

Take a cruise around the city; the streets are full of contrast. You will find bullock carts stuck in traffic jams along with BMW and Mercedes cars, a slum on one side and a top notch shopping mall on the other and of course those Indian cars like Maruti 800 with BMW and Ferrari logo. Seriously it’s very tough to get bored in Delhi.

I don’t deny the fact that most people, especially Westerners might find Delhi’s chaotic ambiance frightening but the trick to enjoy this city is to come with an open mind and be prepared to expect the unexpected. If I were to give out travel tips, all I have to say is go foot loose and yeah, girls dress conservatively.

Here are some random pictures of Delhi. Enjoy!!!!

Chariot owner decorating his Chariot, most probably on his way to a wedding. In India, the groom always arrive in a horse drawn Chariot. Keeping the Fairytale tradition alive.

Factory workers enjoying their lunch bought from rickshaws. Taking the meaning of Al fresco dining to a whole new level, Delhi Style.

School children returning from school. You think your kids school bus is not safe enough.

Delivering the Goods. Wanna know what goods they are carrying. It was loaded with whiskey.

Making Chole Batura, one of Delhi's favorite street foods. These food are super delicious but its also super unhygienic.
