Hanging Around Delhi Market
Beside being one of the most favoured tourist destinations of India, Delhi also flaunts to be a perfect hangout place. No doubt, it is justly said 'No job, no girlfriend, nothing to do..Come to Delhi'. Simply wandering around on the streets of this capital city, itself gifts tourists enough memories to cherish later. The streets pulsate with rocking activities and even rock shows that also add a melody to the tour. Delhi is a relatively easy city to find your way around, although it is very spread out. The serene sectors nestles in the southern part with wide tree-lined avenues, but still with the Indian touches of doe-eyed cows calmly ignoring the traffic, and squatter hovels on wasteland. Every corner unleashes a different experience and every road takes you to a different paradise. So, what are you waiting for? Put on your boots and jump in...
Hanging Around Ansal Plaza
Interestingly, Delhi bestows every tourist with a different experience, suited as par their interests. Visit Sarojini Nagar Market, a popular shopping joint for families staying in South Delhi. But picking up exquisite items in an affordable price is not the only reason that attracts thousands of Delhites everyday, but the fun in wandering its labyrinthine lanes equipped with colourful shops that do the job. Don't miss to savour a round of hot 'jalebis' at the Mucchal Halwayi ki Dukaan, a name given to this shop because its owner had real impressive mustaches. You can also shed a few rupees to get handsome purses or leather belts sold under the decades old sign "SAROJINI NAGAR" at every corner of this bustling market. Get a cab and ask the driver to take you to Lajpat Nagar, situated on the Ring Road. The place is considered as one of the best places to get everything under one roof as far as shopping is concerned. A quaint fixture are the Tibetan ladies that sell freshly steamed vegetable dumplings called "momos";steamed right in front of you in cane basket contraptions. You can even get into the modern 3Cs, that has been opened recently, and is a big hub for youngsters and college-goers. You can see people munching popcorn and sitting astride on the road side walls, with sounds of laughter drenching your ears in breaks. In the evenings, the whole place glimmers like a newly wed bride with colourful lights embellishing the high-rises.
The hanging hub of Delhi is undoubtedly the Connaught Circle, or CP as it is better known. The huge colonnaded structure houses the biggest market place in Delhi where you can be sure of finding anything and everything. From ivory earrings, wooden masks and alluring necklaces, the market also houses fancy pyschedelic T-shirts and electronic items at a much cheaper price. Avoid strangers who might ask you to shed a few bucks in exchange of Ray Ban sunglasses or Gucci belts. Walk a few steps keeping the famous Jantar Mantar to your right and you'll reach Janpath market. Don't miss the delicious 'paneer pakoras' (cottage cheese fries) available with spicy coriander sauce, that will linger your memories all through your stay in Delhi. Also worth a visit is the supposedly air-con and slightly run down Palika Bazaar. This utterly confusing underground market with its 400 odd shops is a good place to buy electronic gadgets and cheap leather goods. Here you can also see teenagers buying trendy rock T-shirts or getting a shirt of their choice and getting rubber prints on it. Alternatively, if you want to see a brighter and opulent side for your hang outs, move to GK (Greater Kailash) or SE (South Extension). Fringed with multinational brand showrooms and trendy fashion houses, these places are a big hub for aristrocrat denizens. Eat 'chat' or momo and savour silver foil wrapped delicious 'paans' available in cigarette shops. You can even quench your thirst with a mug of beer in the numerous bars and discotheques that trim the locality.
If you want to see your youth come alive right before your eyes, visit the bustling sectors of Kamla Market, nestling at a stone's throw from Delhi University's North Campus. The place swells with smart college-goers and beautiful girls who find this place exciting enough to spend their afternoons. Book stores roost cheek by jowl with coffee shops whose mind-blowing aroma of fresh brews enchant every passerby. Sing aloud with them, or simply stand by and listen to the euphonic rhythms of an accoustic guitar.
