Interesting Outlets You Could Find In and Around Delhi Metro

We all love to hate Delhi Metro. It is like that nagging partner who browbeats us and yet we can’t live without them! Metro gets us crushed, squeezed and sometimes many-a-times terribly late for our office because of “there will be a short delay to this service, we apologize for the inconvenience”. But we Delhiites have made peace with it (because beggars can’t be choosers so #shutup). Well since Metro is our daily love affair, I would like to list few outlets in and around Metro that might come in handy for y’all.

1. Annapurna Sweets – “When life gives you sugar, make sweets” seem to be the motto of Annapurna sweets that make roshogullas, saundesh, milkcakes and more. Their mishit-dahi is to die for. You may get down to Greenpark metro station and walk a little towards Yusuf Sarai market and treat yourself some savories. P.S. : They make yum ‘boondi ka prashad’ on Tuesdays.

2. Cobbler at Greenpark – In all probabilities, once in a while there comes a day in every Delhiites’ life when the insane rush at Kashmere Gate shakes your faith in humanity. It’s in those times that your bata sandals would also ditch you. For those unfortunate days, you may get down at Greenpark (take an exit on Yusaf Sarai market road) and you would find a cobbler who will make you stand on your legs again. P.S: He is available on all days from 12:00pm - 7:00 pm.

3. Drools Café & BarDwarka sector 13 metro station has a gem called Drools. It has food and drinks to mesmerize your taste buds. If you are hungry af and are craving for “good food”, check in here for some beer and Mediterranean pizza. If you are going for a birthday party, take a cake from Drools, but don’t eat it by yourself all the way.

4. Washroom – Believe it or not, Janpath is one of the very few metro stations that have a washroom inside the AFC gates! So if your bowels are giving up on you, and you happenstance to pass by Janpath metro station, get down from the train and do your duties without even having to make an exit! #thankmelater

5. SBI Bank – Did you know, Jhilmil station on the Red Line is the only station that has an SBI Bank with locker facility housed inside the outer periphery of metro station. So if you are travelling in that direction, you may want to open a bank account and avail the locker facility.

6. Ananda DairyFaridabad, the Satellite city of Delhi, has one of the newly built metro stations named NHPC. This station has a kiosk called Ananda that keeps variety of flavored milk, dahi, chaach, lassi and few more dairy items. Try their special paneer jalebi for a sugary twist.

7. WH Smith – Can be found across various stations and keeps snacks, books (mainly Chetan Bhagat’s, dontknowhyWTFWTFWTF) and many cute gift items. If you want to pick something for your boss on the way, stop by this at Inderlok, Hauz Khas, Sikanderpur, Barakhamba, Dwarka Sector 21, Pitampur, Rajouri Garden and many more.

8. Archies Gallery Kirti Nagar – If gifts from WH Smith doesn’t cut an eye with you, you may get down at Kirti Nagar on Blue Line. Exit from Gate No. 3 and you will spot an Archies Gallery for all your gifts needs.

9. Croma - Just outside Kailash Colony metro station, you can find a Croma store for all your tech geek needs. If you travel to work in Violet Line, you may want to get down at Kailash Colony and have a look at what Croma has for you.

10. Sahitya Akademi Bookshop – Currently, you can find Sahitya Academy bookshop at 2 stations – Kashmere Gate (at concourse level of elevated section of the station) and the other one at Vishwavidyalaya Metro station. Metro passengers can also avail 15% discount on the books by showing their Delhi Metro Smart Card.

In all probabilities, I may have left out some good options, so please help me to make the list exhaustive :)

When She Danced to the Raaga

She stood stiff, with her neck buried into her piano, just the way a cow grazes the grass. She believed this way, she can bring her mind closer to the task and concentrate fully. Her fingers moved like undersized waves that ebb and flow recklessly into a sea. The black and white keys, the notes and half-notes blow some syncopated music that she could dance to. She so wanted to! But she concentrated to get the Malkaush Raag right.

Some music begins to flow into the room like maple leaves fall in Ontario- soft, and bronze red.

“Guru ji says this music releases some sort of nourishing energy”- she chuckled without looking up at him.

“Nourishing energy? Umm… like some soul stirring?”- he enquired.

“Soul-stirring. Yes. This raag is believed to have been created by Goddess Parvati to sooth Shiva when He was outraged and would not calm down...after Tandav...and…”

She resumed her attention on the Arohana notes. She just slipped her hand from Komal Ga to Shuddh Pa. "Pa is completely omit…

You won’t believe Who Would be Watching ‘Bahubali-2’ Even Before its Worldwide Release!

Movie buffs in India are eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ but guess it’s the Queen Elizabeth II of UK who would watch it first. Reports have it that Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ will be screened in UK a day prior to its worldwide release. 
The British Film Institute will showcase Indian films as a part of Indian Film program from April till December and Baahubali has made the cut to be screened to mark 70 years of India’s independence. If sources are to be believed, not just Queen Elizabeth II but PM Modi would also be among the first ones to know “Katappa ne Bahubali ko kyu maara”. He is likely to attend the screening on 27th April, i.e., one day before its worldwide release – but no official statement has been declared.
With a budget of Rs. 150 crores, Baahubali is the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema.  It is a sweeping epic that glues the audience for straight 2 hours and 40 minutes, with our mouths wide open to the gr…

3 Reasons Why Not Wearing a Bra is sometimes the BEST Feeling in the World

As insane as it may sound, but women are ALWAYS in a love-hate relationship with their bras. They would be very choosy about the size, make and color. Every morning, they would meticulously choose which one to wear that complements their dress; but this dear feeling would soon vanish as the day advances. Through this post, I’m trying to list down the reasons why women love to hate their bras that they happily cling on to on a daily basis.

   .Just Letting Them Breathe For it is the basic and fundamental right of any being. Yes, boobs are beings and women feel the urge to unwind and let them breathe, for breathe they must. So when the days are heavy and you can’t take the cruelties of the world anymore, remember to unhook

  2.   To Avoid that Stabbing Feeling

Men would never understand the feeling of something constantly stabbing their chest and shoulders. Women would agree that however comfortable bra they wear, it can sometimes sting the body (padded and wired ones specially are kille…
