  1. You’ve covered almost everything I can think of. Does Akshardham temple count, since it’s rather new? Nice place to send a day at. And Appu Ghar. 🙂 The zoo. Can’t remember any more at the moment. Will write them down as and when I can recall them.Oh and anytime I’m in Delhi and you’re going, let me know. I’ll tag along. I need to go to most of these places too. Been to half of them, but as a kid.

  4. I tried to post a comment thrice yesterday and failed. I hope you generally roam around the city (specially old delhi) and discover new things. I discovered Anupam PVR like that, but that’s another story…


  5. SwetankOh of course Akshardham counts. Added. :)Not Appu Ghar ‘coz I went there some 3-4 years ago and considering that I’m not so much of a fan of rides, I’ll skip it. Not even the zoo…until I have a better camera at least.And ok. You let me know when you’re here, and I’ll let you know when I’m venturing out. 🙂TaniaI’ve seen Jama Masjid from outside but from your comment it seems like I’m missing something. So I’ll add it to my list too. Thanks. :)I’ve been to India Gate often enough. Passed by it every day on my way to college for 3 years too. 🙂DKALL HAIL THE KING!Ok, so the responsibility of taking me to the places that you say I should not go to alone falls onto your shoulders. I’m sure you don’t mind(?):DThis comment of yours goes into my hall of fame. And it’s flagged too. I’ll make sure that I keep marking off these places one by one. :-)No doubt that you love the city. RohitCool.Silver MistThanks so much. Happy to know that people appreciate it too. :-)’India, my home’ will take time but it will definitely be here one day.SubhadipI tried calling you thrice today evening and failed.What’s your PVR Anupam story, Yoda? Luke’s curious.KarthikHuh?


  6. I have read this post several times and every single time it makes me homesick. So I shall refrain from bawling my eyes out here. Aarbee, you have fun Delhi-ing, ok?
