Delhi’s Weekly Market

Life is so hectic for every one in this world. Nobody finds time even to say hello to neighbours. Morning to evening life has become so mechanical and in this situation human feelings are the causality. I find visiting weekly market (very common in northern part of India) every week refresh my mind and soul and breaks the monotony, which started on Monday. You can buy anything from pin to pillar from this roof less super market. I always feel that my week never comes to an end without visiting this market. I really love to meet my neighbour and … Continue reading Delhi’s Weekly Market

Technology development has revolutionized India, particularly in the field of communication. Internet, e-mail & mobile phones are making peoples life easier. Among this, mobile phones have become a mania in India. Here are the few actions of mobile users to support this statement.

Delhi’s Metro

This is a nostalgic memory of Delhi’s metro and how it changed the life of a common man in Delhi. If you say metro it will certainly bring a pleasant smile on Delhi’s commuters. It is quite natural considering Delhi’s commuters woes before the arrival of Metro. You can easily identify Delhi’s commuters’ ‘mode of travel’ by their appearance. If they are dirty, tired with disheveled hair, looking pale and their dress is full of wrinkles certainly they might have travelled by Delhi Transport Corporation buses (DTC); if they appear pleasant, neat and clean and talk coolly, I am sure … Continue reading Delhi’s Metro

For Entertainment sake

During my childhood  I was in a small village named ‘Konthagai’ which is in South Tamil Nadu, India. Since it was a tiny village, there was no entertainment for us other than playing few outdoor games. No television or video games were there at that time. The only entertainment for us was to go for a movie occasionally. Unfortunately there was no theater in our village. We had to go to a neighbouring village, which is three kilometers away from our village. Going for a movie for us was not as easy as everybody thinks. After much persuasion our parents … Continue reading For Entertainment sake

Enlightened at Buddha’s Land

When I planned my trip to Patna, all my friends expressed an odd look. When I informed them that I will be going to Bodh Gaya they changed their expression which was so pleasing. That is the effect of the name ‘Bodh Gaya’. The distance between Patna to Bodh Gaya is only 105 Kms but it took us six hours to reach Bodh Gaya. It was a nerve rattling experience due to bad condition of the road. Bodh Gaya is the most revered of all Buddhist sacred sites as Buddha’s enlightenment happened here.The main temple complex houses the famous Mahabodhi temple, … Continue reading Enlightened at Buddha’s Land

Unity in diversity

India is unique country as it has so many languages. Unity in diversity is India’s strength. Yet citizens always face some embarrassing moments when they travel from one state to another. I got a nostalgic memory when I came to Delhi 35 years ago without knowing its local lanugage ‘Hindi’. When I joined my office, I was completely startled to see such a situation where everyone was talking in Hindi, cracking jokes in Hindi, exchanging greetings in Hindi. When they were talking about me I was not knowing whether they were appreciating me or abusing me.  From that moment on … Continue reading Unity in diversity
