Car Views...Wet Delhi :-)

And then he thundered...Let there be rains...and the parched & arid land of Delhi was something of an equivalent of the great floods (remember Noah or your histoy guys & gals..) ...all thanks to the various civic & CWG authorities of Saddi Dilli....

The last few times had posted some pics on dusty hot delhi...and this I thought let me post some videos of how the rains effect the capital of India. A completly washed look when you just look...washed out when you have to travel...greenery all around...birds chirping...smiles on everyones faces (no not the ones who are driving :-) )...children playing in the rain...yes... to answer one of my mentors question..paper boats are STILL in vogue

And also how inconsiderate some people can be while driving..

check them out

Funny Ads - American Seafood Festival - will Paul be there?

some time back had started something of an ode to all the creative people out there..but I guess technology takes the cake ..or should I say fish / mussel cake in this case..

Paul the octopus..has been the oracle ...predicting the world cup FIFA 2010 winners...Pauls been right till now..very very psychic eight armed fellow I should say...

with contextual advertising or maybe...too many impressions to be burnt on a CPC deal ;-) (dont kill me guys here..wheres your sense of humor)....

Wonder what Paul - Octopus would like to say about the American Seafood Celebration!! of course the celebration is for a limited time only ;-)

Will Paul be a part of the great American Seafood Celebration??
Would he be able to predict this predcament?
Lets watch the news!! better still lets go celebrate!

Car Views - Dusty Delhi & NCR

Summers in Delhi is fun..especially now that Delhi is become NCR..saw a few sights which ensured that I made good use of the camera on my mobile phone and thought let me share here for whoever is interested. This is the continuation of the earlier stuff tht I had put up..the little known sights of Delhi / India
Some of this stuff is from sites of Gurgaon too..

Yes you guessed this right. These were a bunch of donkeys on busy road. I had parked on the side to take a call when I noticed them..yeah right...I do tend to notice a lot of donkeys in this world LOL. but these chappies were pretty intelligent..they waited for the traffic to thin down...crossed the road...and actually trotted on the sidewalk..Dont know how many of us have this civic sense in us :-). Next time I hope I see pigs..they are too found in abundance here :-)

Dulhan Dahej Hai - The bride is the Dowry
Now thats a good social message on the dowry system. Its a crime to take Dowry by the way

Machine ka Tandha Paani - Cold water from a Machine
 This used to be available for 5 paise a glass now the rates have shot up to a rupee. In summers in Delhi one gets to see these "machines" which use a simple pump mechanism to pump out water in a glass. A boon to all travellers. Sometimes if one is lucky the vendor may also have some lemons and give you an outta this world lemonade.

On the way to Office..towards Gurgaon, Haryana
Well..Thats the "Ship Building" on the right hand side
which is just kind of visible on a dusty morning. can see the building a little bit more clearly

Dust in Delhi is brought about by an onslaught of wind wind..called locally as Loo. Dont confuse it with the word Loo used for the toilets..if you me the experience may not be well liked by you and the people around the delhi Loo is hot and furious.

well now me gotta go..and shut all doors and the winds have started again

It's a jungle out there!!

Thought of sharing one of the songs I kind of liked. Its does reflect the world we live in..

It's a jungle out there

Disorder and confusion everywhere
No one seems to care
Well I do
Hey, who's in charge here?
It's a jungle out there
Poison in the very air we breathe
Do you know what's in the water that you drink?
Well I do, and it's amazing
People think I'm crazy, 'cause I worry all the time
If you paid attention, you'd be worried too
You better pay attention
Or this world we love so much might just kill you
I could be wrong now, but I don't think so!
'Cause there's a jungle out there.
It's a jungle out there.
