Why Delhi is so unique

The chaos, the crowd, the noise and the smell makes Delhi so unique from any other city in the planet. If you managed to survive Delhi, then you can survive anywhere in the planet. Delhi to me is the ultimate place to test your skills on traveling, bargaining, judging and safety. If you think you can drive a car or ride a motorbike, give it a shot here in Delhi. Driving or riding is nothing less than being in an Off-road racing or rally racing, both in terms of the road condition and the rage involved. The only difference is a cow can appear anytime, anywhere. Coming to safety, girls always be on alert, you don’t know when a bunch of guys in a car will pick you up from the road in broad daylight and give you a ride. The thrill, the fear and the chaos, all these make a vacation in Delhi so unique.

Apart from the negativity, Delhi is also the city where you will get to meet, see and taste the entire country. Women safety is a big concern but the city is working really hard to deal with it. Road rage will still be there until the Traffic Police seize the vehicles of all those uneducated baboons who think their 800 cc car is a sports car. No matter how posh the hotel or the neighborhood you are staying is, how upscale the place where you dine and shop is you will always find a cow outside. You can’t escape from the cow.

Finally the skies have opened up. Delhi weather can't be better than this.

FYI, India is facing the biggest blackout. First the power went off early Monday morning around two and came only at 9. Even Today the power went off and I seriously don't know when it will be restored. Its not only in Delhi, the Black out effected Punjab, Rajasthan, J&K, Bihar, Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal, UP, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Delhi and the seven North Eastern states. So much for being an upcoming 'Super Power.'
