Delhi 6 - CC


Time : 11:30 am
Place - my bed :-)

"Waiting for tonight" - my cell ringtone ....trrinnggss.....
A female voice - " Coming in 5 minutes. get ready"
My voice - " hmmmm....huh....jaana hai kya ? "

and call is over long back.


Huh !!
She is in India . A cousin of her.....ooppsss sorry ! Her favourite cousin is getting married.
So,what am I suppose to do other than wishing them , BHANGRA ?

NO.Shopping ..

Oh...pleaseeeee....

Just over with my summer internship.....let me sleep for sometime.....and who the hell in this world would go to CC - Chandani Chowk - at 44 c in this Delhi heat and that too shopping.

Well,I am wrong. Over 1000+ people are in CC.

Huh!!

btw- if you're still wondering -I am in CC.
Only she can take me out of my comfort zone...
Girls ,I tell you...are GIRLS.

So,where do we start ?

Everything in CC is famous . or 100 years old , more , 200 years old.

Small streets , cramped passages ,people all over and then the local mode of movement - "rickshaws".... you'll get lost. But I actually was enjoying .

It was fun . How ?

I wasn't carring my handkerchief ...and sweating I was.....tapp tapp tapp....

So she bought me a nice "rumaal".

Then we went to the famous "Giani's" -had sweet lassi.....and half-talli I was...

But its just started.....moving from here to there.....we at last reached THE SHOP.

She had already dropped in this place before.So everyone knew her. She was on to her work. And I was - Delhi girls with them , mom-in-laws-in making -checking out - Lehanga's ,sarees and what not !!

I was of the opinion that she was buying all this for herself. But NO.

She was on behalf of the bride getting the things checked .She was the official designer of the bride's clothes.

wow !! and what am I doing - " dosti" .... right right right

Almost 2 hours of seeing how a "bride's shopping is done - I was IMPRESSED .She's damn good.

Well,shopping got over - next was Khan market.A place which needs no "gyaan"from me.
I could see that I had no option of doing social service . Because my car's back seat was overflowing. I couldn't believe . She shopped so much....oh.....

And when did this all happen.....

"Ladki Kyon Na Jaane Kyon Ladko Si Nahin Hoti " - Saif bhai.....

It was a nice experience . And I got loads of goodies from her.

So,when in Delhi , do take time out to check out the "jaan of Delhi / India " - CC

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .




Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
