Dilli Dilwalon ki!

Well..This post was long due...I always had heard and believed that Dilli walahs are arrogant and proud as a Peacock! Probably because I loathe the fact that for every Delhite every south Indian is termed as a Madrasan!

I had my first interaction with Delhi early last year. Thanks to my ex company..My 1st visit to Delhi, I anxiously wanted to explore the city, find out how people are, are they really Snobbish & arrogant? Thousand questions when you are travelling alone for the 1st time. I was excited, nervous and looking forward.

Unfortunately my 1st visit dint allow me to even have a glimpse of Delhi and was spent in the boardroom..But made the visit memorable! I did make a fool of myself when I cried among the men as I was clueless about the happenings..Most embarrassing moment..

That short stay at Delhi, I was still trying to figure out what exactly people mean when they praise or abuse someone at the back. Just left confused.

My recent few visits to Delhi ensured I fell in love with the city & its people. Met people from Virtual world & they appeared to be great hosts, ensured I was comfortable & never called me Madrasan. Meeting random people from different paths of life gives a better picture of the culture of the city than company perspective.

I laughed, shared secrets, bitched about others but had a great time. Down the lane when I look back, I am sure I will cherish the memories Delhi has provided me. Yes there are times when I could still find streaks of mystery in few people I encountered in Delhi, they still remain Mystery, but I assume its an exception. As they say, carry the positivity, negativity is everywhere and it doesn't need to be carried around with memories.

I was surprised I could share the deepest secrets with the strangers whom I hardly know, but realized the Delhites are blessed with a talent of taking over the conversation and make anyone comfortable to converse with.. The unsaid & rumored illusions about safety in the city took a back seat & I thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent. I just went ahead with instincts and with the flow of the moment.

There are differences, being a South Indian - every person encountered during life is a part of your life, your relationship, and gradually you assume that you know them. But Delhi made me realize, you meet, you greet, you talk, you move on. Relationships with the person you encountered are not mandatory, the encounter & the actions evolved out of it was just a spur of the moment. No Strings Attached.

Better late than ever, move on with the memory to cherish & never regret things which made you smile once. Enjoy the life when it provides you with opportunities to live for!
