With the erratic drivers on the road... my prayers are with these men who brave the traffic for fulfilling their duty. :-)

This is metal statue that caught my fancy at the Chinese restaurant- Woks, at the Intercontinental Hotel, Barakhambha Road, New Delhi. The restaurant is at the 28th floor of the five-star and gives a great view of the whole city from the windows. But incessant rains hindered my taking pics of the city lights. No worries next time.
Greetings from the gray, watering city :-)

With incessant rains drenching Delhi, I had no choice but to go to my back-yard for inspiration. Next to the bench I saw a bouquet of wilted flowers that I guess someone might have left. The only thought that this image left me with was that somewhere a heart must have been broken when the flowers were discarded so gruesomely.

These are the dustbins that adorn the roadsides of Delhi. I had many people staring and smirking at me while I was clicking this photo. I can imagine that they were surprised that I wanted to capture these blue and green bins. To tell you the truth I really am thankful to the Delhi Government for taking this step. Delhites are actually now more aware of their surroundings and keeping the city clean. Clean Delhi, Green Delhi. :-)
@ Eliane: Yes it is the Delhi subway... Its the greatest gift to the city if I may say so. :-)
@ Tejbir: I am so happy to know that the Delhi Photo Dairy has managed to bring back memories for you. :-)

With the Metro construction blanketing almost all of Delhi, this is a usual scene on Delhi roads these days. I must say, the people managing the construction of the Metro are doing a fantastic job considering that they are spread through some of the most important roads of the city, yet they manage the traffic quite well and I have never spotted dirt on the part of the road where the construction is not happening.

Me and my mom share a wonderful relationship. She is one of my best friends and just like I announced today on the Meow FM that my mom is my puke-box in a very good way. I mean its mandatory for me to puke out all the details of the day to her. She is the axis around which my whole world revolves. I could have pasted any photograph of both of us, but I wanted to continue with the theme of posting only the pics that I have clicked from my cell phone. So here are Mom and Me having fun at the Girgaum Beach in Mumbai. Its a moment I would cherish for all my life.

This is a typical multiplex that you can find in various places in Delhi. I visited one today to watch the fantasy film Bhoothnath. Its a very cute story about a relationship that a Ghost shares with a small Child. Amitabh Bachchan, the Superstar of the Millennium is back in my good books for his performance in this one. He is fantastic. The Child is so adorable that I was floored. Its a must watch for those who are bored of love-stories and can appreciate a good film which has its comic, sad and happy moments. Below is a poster of the film.

Today is a landmark of sorts, I have posted the 50th photograph on the Delhi Photo Diary. I want to dedicate this post to the Delhi's public and private buses. They take me to various places in Delhi. I might crib and rant about them... but at the end of the day they are the lifelines that help Delhi and Delhites move. So here is a dedication to the Buses of Delhi that make this blog happen!
If you want to read about what I think of Delhi Buses and my experiences on board... click the following links:

The lifeline of Delhi. The Mother Dairy booths all across the city provide milk early in the morning and at evenings. I remember that as a kid I used to be especially excited to put the tokens through the token hole and watch the milk pour down. I really wish something as simple as that could excite me even today. :-)

A young man visits a lady in her middle-age. They engage in small talk with the boy exuding nervous energy. The boy reveals his identity and his father's name to the lady. She instantly recognises the man to be her son, whom she had left when he was just 5 years old. The young man questions his mother for the reasons she had left him. The mother cooks up a story, saying that his father had killed all her singing aspirations, was a sadist and behaved very badly with her. She adds that she left the father because she could not bear the brutal treatment JUST because she was an Indian girl. The son loses his temper and tells his mother that he knows that she was forced to leave his father because she had been impregnated by his father's best friend. The play ended with the son leaving his mother crying with tears of guilt that promise to ruin her life for all times to come.
It was not a happy story that I usually enjoy. But I was really impressed with the actors. The Son was excellent in projecting the anguish of a child, who was abandoned by his mother and had faced the hardships of life answering difficult questions about his own mother. The Mother on her part, was exceptional in adorning the role of a woman who made a choice earlier in life, a choice that makes her guilty but at the same time the good things that come with this new life are worth forgetting the injustice she met out to her son. I had goosebumps after watching her express remorse at the end of the play.
Hope you liked the story too. :-)

This is a swanky building being readied for the students pursuing their Post Graduation in Medicine from Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. I walk past this building everyday but I though of capturing it only today. This proves the old adage 'Sometimes it takes a lot of time for you to see things in front of your eyes.' :-)
