Delhi Belly 2

This post is a continuation of the last post which took me to Delhi en-route Tibet.

*Sick and Tired I stand alone, behind the doors or should I open It for you or...*

Sometimes Metallica works wonders. What a song The Unforgiven II is. Bang on the situation at 4:20 a.m. Hungry, sweaty(Tibet effect), tired, sleepy but still a Baniya I was fighting the Autowalas at Sarai Kaale Khan ISBT. Weather was as usual chilling and I was about to freeze. I felt like I was kept in a deep freezer and my body sweat was getting transformed to ice with each passing nano second. Forgetting all this I had to bargain. And so I started:

Me: How much for IP extension?

A1: 100.

Me: Hehe. Not Gurgaon or Noida dude. Its IP.

A1: Not less than this.
(A2 enters)

A2: Kahan jana h bhaiya? (Where do you want to go?)

Me: Pata to h bhaiya aapko. Mein bahar ka nahi hu. Chalna h to chalo 40 mein.
(You know where I want to go. I am not an outsider. Want to go in 40 bucks?)

A2: Itna to nahi ho paega..

Me: (moving to A3) Haan Bhaiya chaloge kya? (What say? Will you be going?)

A3: 70 is last. Not less than this.

ME: 50 from me. Yes or no.

A3: Thek h bhaiya subah ka time h. (Okay. Due to morning time, I agree.)



BTW the normal amount which the rickshaw takes from here to the place is 70 rupees at any hour or the day. Night and unusual timing charges obviously go up like rockets. I told you I am a Baniya...:)

Delhi looks so different these days. I was here in December and it looked as if its been ages I came to this place. Everything looks changed. The flyovers, metro lines, roads, CWG village and everything are growing so fast that Delhi looks different each time I visit (May this continue after the CWG also).

I reached home in about half an hour and the autowala looked as though he was being robbed. But it was him who agreed. Otherwise I would have robbed someone else. HEHE..

I know some of you might be missing the mini skirted girls description this time but I didn't saw any at this time of the day. All I could see after Yamuna river was fog and fog and fog. The descriptions will come soon in following posts but in a different way this time.

So after belling and shouting for a long time at the doors of our home, I decided to spent money from my devil (L6). I called up bhaiya and told him twice that I was standing at the door. But "Dilli Ki sardi.." Finally he opened the door and I could meet my Bro (My best friend). Even a day without him seems to be incomplete and now we meet twice or thrice a year. Then came Bhabhi and I all my load went off somewhere. I had a n early tea at 5:15 a.m. and we chatted till 8:00 and bhaiya had to leave for his office.

I was cursed for keeping a different look this time which was a mix of Dutch and Afghani cut. I dont know why people think these looks are so indecent? But I like it. Actually I just love all these dynamicity these looks brings. After all ' Ghar ki kheti h.'

Rest story will be coming in other parts. Keep your fingers crossed guys.

Antarman said...

These autowallas just ruin the travel..I so much wish that we get those with meters..I mean the running meters..life would be so cool...when i was there...from patparganj to anand vihar bus stand, there was hardly any distance but none would agree to go in less that 50..and in the evening nobody from ITO wanted to come to this side.

Madhu said...

changes in places makes it better aint it?? well talkin of hair cuts..i know how it feels..my fav one is that which makes mom go crazy..:P:D

Chanz said...

arre nahi... sarai kale khan se IP extn takes abt 50 only... 70 kahan unless u wanted to go kahin andar tak... loot liya auto wale ne... lol...

I didnt know, u from delhi...
Its just that I have this affinity towards dilli walas... just like biharis have for biharis and madrasis have for madrasis... :P

nil said...

Nipun said...

@ tara

Won't make u wait long.

Thnx.

Nipun said...

@ A new beginning

I have just begun knowing the place.
I am back from the place and due to my liking towards winters I can't say much about brrrr..

Thnx..:)

Nipun said...

@ antarman

U brought me to the exact location.
Patparh ganj is the place where I had to go via IP.
Some plot no i dont remember..
Meters are gud when u knw the exact location and the way to that place. Meters have their disadvntg as the autowalas keeps on roaming at places which we don't even know and keeps the meter running..
But we have no options..:(
I will do something once I grow up..:)

Thnx..

Nipun said...

@ madhu

Can't say of much about betterment. We talk about shining towers and marvelous buildings.
But what the...

*Drinks some water*

Don't get me started on this...:)

I agree on the fact that the best cut is that which makes ur parents go crazy...
Even i luv the fact and following this from the past 4 years.

Thnx madhu..

Nipun said...

No one can THAGO a baniya..

Nipun said...

@ Nil
