Metro Ride & Dahi Bhallas

Traveling by the Delhi Metro Railways is an experience that makes you feel as if you’re in Virginia. With a token that cost Rs.7, I could travel to Chandni Chowk, a place where one would prefer not taking his/her car. It was the first time that I had used the services of DMRC, and I was really impressed.

The speaker in the metro was reminding passengers about what not to do and thankfully everyone followed instructions by not spitting. Eatables are prohibited, and this was probably the main reason I found the Metro extremely clean. In any other public transport vehicle, I would have expected peanut chhilkasand**pan paragwrappers all over the place.

In less than 5 minutes I reached Chandni Chowk in air conditioned comfort. In comparison, by road it would have cost me more for just the petrol and a lot of time is obviously wasted. Walking out of the station at Chandni Chowk, we went across a small temple and through a small lane reached Natraj’s Corner.

I had not had any breakfast, and Natraj ke aloo tikki aur dahi bhalle were really welcome. Will I come here again, just to fill my stomach? If it’s by the metro, sure I will!

After my short stay(30 minutes) at Chandni Chowk, I bought another token and 5 minutes later walked out of the metro where my journey had started. The metro will be really useful if I get an admission to any college in the University of Delhi, because by 2008 I should have a Metro station just 350 metres from my house.
