On some parts of the area, it’s really strict and on some part, it’s like chalta h chalta h (Hindi word) meaning its okay.
If you say to someone that this is the respective time and arrive at sharp, he/she most of the time will be late. But if you set a certain restriction like related to money, time will automatically come into play. The office is a perfect example. Coming late after 9 a.m. that automatically means salary will be deducted.
In the daylight, you will always be going to find everyone running to their destination and its obvious that restriction is making them run. To achieve something, you have to set some restrictions it’s as simple.
This is true, Yes Delhi is crowded and I would say over a crowded city with almost 2cr. people.
One important thing is that you will never be felt alone, just fun stuff.
But it’s fine now it’s the daily routine. Instead now, if I don’t see any crowd I got worried where the Delhi people had gone. So, it’s crowded but you will get adjusted soon.
And Delhi people love escaping to the Himalayas on the weekends and especially to Himachal and that includes me too though.
A supermarket in almost every 2nd -3rd street makes it easy to shop nearby. And does not have to commute long distances to buy home products.
An important thing which every person sees before buying a house is the availability of supermarket nearby. Things get much more interesting when you have so many options to choose from.
Competition in some streets of Delhi is just unbelievable.
You will never get bored here. Whether it is the fight of husband or wife on the roads or the children masterstroke for a glass brake of the house or people fighting for a gentle push or why are you seeing her, again and again, she is my girlfriend line and this story never ends ……….
Delhi never disappoints in the entertainment part.
6. Believe in Savings
Majority of people highly believe in saving.
Like if they get a salary today, a small part of the salary is spent on buying something for their parents or family and a major part has been spent for future use.
Hats off to the people who sacrifice their passion for the betterment of their family and parents.
Note – I have noticed this and experienced in my own family.
7. Helpful to Foreigners
My New Delhi brothers are gonna kill me for this, but I have noticed this.
People are more helpful to foreign tourists if they ask something. It sounds like they are going to drop them till their destination. People even going to tell what to see there and which food to try even.
And suppose let’s say I ask something: people are like to go straight and ask ahead maybe. Am I not lucky enough or it’s a coincidence, will find out in the future mates.
Sorry for the disclosure but don’t know happens, no hard feelings.
