10:30 ki second last local

Apologies for not writing as frequently as I would have liked to, especially since a lot is happening here in Delhi. Here's what is happening, in short:

Meeting old friends. Mostly from the Hughes gang. Somehow, the Hughes gang has remained friends although most of us left the company three or four years ago. Changes from last time: Good to see Sunil lose a quarter of his previous weight; Milind and his new car, and his special "friend"; Shaji's son Shaun, and the new sprawling apartment he has moved to; and Rahul's son Raghav.

Watching great movies as varied as Sideways (2004), Casablanca (40s), Cleopatra (60s), "The Matador" (sometime this century), and "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" (70s). Aro has a great collection; hope to explore a few while I am here. Unfortunately, not getting enough time to read the books he has.

Having varied food as Chole Bhature (how could I skip this in Delhi), Momos, Dosas, Tikkis, Dal-Roti (at National Dhaba in CP) and the hundred different types of finger food. Not to forget the drinks, the star of which has to be the milk shake from Keventer's in CP.

And did I mention that I am now an expert on CP? Four different days there for me in less than a week here!

As far as the title is concerned, that's the Delhi Metro train I took to reach Aro's place in Dwarka tonight. Nothing as dramatic (none actually) happened as in the movie, but I guess you need to take the last train for that.

Hehe.. did you really want something as dramatic as that shady movie?

Yaar sari duniya talks about Keventer's but I have never been able to get myself to drink anything from there. The look of it is too scary.

I am not meeting you in CP next. You have to take me to that place in CR Park you told me about.

Aur Aro ko mera hello bolna.

Dharamshala was canceled due to the usual reasons. Yeah, hope to meet you. How busy are you this weekend? Is Pondy in town?

Skeety does not like Keventers :(
Anyway have a lovely stay in Saddi Dilli :D
Cheers to that!

@Skeets
It's not the flavor of Keventer's, it's the tradition, I guess.

I had a lovely time at Delhi, as always. Thanks.
