To Delhi and back
Visiting Delhi after a more than a decade was quite an experience. The city looks more like a national capital now. For someone used to Mumbai's crowds, narrow roads and towering buildings, Delhi seems like a vast, empty place connected by highways. And yet, there is a sense of grandeur about the place - the Red Fort, Raj Ghat, the army barracks - and the ever present scent of heavy duty politics. My host proudly informed me that in 5 years, it would get even better, thanks to the Commonwealth games. Maybe then the rest of the world will stop talking about the cows.
