A happy new Year!

A very happy new Year to all of us πŸ™‚ I hope the year 2015 brings lots of happiness for all of us. Here’s to bigger dreams, stronger will powers, happier times and living life to the fullest no matter what the challenge is. πŸ™‚

My Facebook status currently reads ‘Ringing in the new year with a humble visit to Shahjahan’s Delhi when the world parties it all out in Lutyens’ Delhi (in the end, we did visit Shri Bangla Sahib in Lutyens’)’. For those who have no idea about what I am saying, basically I and my brother visited the Sam’s Cafe in Paharganj today evening which is in Old Delhi. Old Delhi was built during the Mughal era, so that’s why Shahjahan’s Delhi. Quite a choice for visiting on New Year but, oh well. Then we also visited Shri Bangla Sahib Gurudwara in Connaught Place. CP was designed by British architect Edwin Lutyens’ (just Google-d the full name) during the British rule, so areas designed by him are popularly known as Lutyens’ Delhi. The idea of this post came through a comment by TatsatΒ where he asked to talk about things we did on New Year. It’s good that he expected that I’ll be doing something happening. πŸ˜›


Sam’s Cafe, Paharganj


Shri Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, Connaught Place. So beautiful, I know!

PS: I just checked my annual report card at WordPress and it is a really, really fun thing to do. Check mine here and definitely check your too, you must have got an email notification about the same on your registered email by WordPress.

Have a very happy new Year everyone! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh.. I think I read the other post before this one. Scrolls top to bottom πŸ˜€ You computer folks should do something about this anomaly πŸ˜›

    That is a fantastic way to celebrate New Year! Good company ( read the comment in that post ) bhi ho gaya, bas you need C2H5OH πŸ˜›

    Haven’t been to Gurudwara there. Have herd of it of course, but there is something about religious places which repels me you know… But maybe I can tag someone along, to help me through with that.
    Looks great in lights by the way. I visited the one that you have in CHandni Chowk ( didn’t go in but it looks majestic doesn’t it? ) last night.

    Didn’t even know about Sam’s Cafe :\ You sent me to Paharganj sometime back,remember? Should have told me to check it out there itself. Ab dubaara jana hoga :\ What did you guys order there?

    • ohho, C2H5OH _/\_
      Yeah, the Chandni CHowk one is the Sheeshganj Gurudwara, looks magnificient, I have never been inside though. Hmmm, I am not an atheist but like people say that they feel at peace when visiting temples etc, yet to feel that. However, have you ever been to any Gurudwara? As I have this feeling that this place wont repel you. πŸ™‚

      Even if I had told you about Sam’s, dubara toh bht baar jaana padega. Paharganj has COUNTLESS number of cafes, it’s just that this one got famous. I haven’t visited any yet though. This was my second time to Sam’s. We ordered Potato-Al-Forno. Uble aloo & cheese, so even if it wasn’t salty enough, potato and cheese hai toh sahi h i lga mujhe :P, my brother didn’t like it.

      • Speaking of such places, its intriguing why temples and gurudwaras don’t really ask-me-in. Mosques do. Been to Jama Masjid more than once and also the one in Chandni Chowk. Have been to Golden Temple once with friends but I couldn’t feel the place really. Maybe am not as evolved as I should be to appreciate those places but its an
        interesting paradox… Me being atheist yet mosques…

        Uble aaloo? Ghar par mummy ko bol dete agar aaloo ubaalna bhi nai aata :\ Uske liye itni door πŸ˜‰ waah re duniya πŸ˜‰ Brother samajhdaar hai issiliye usse yaha “wrong number” laga hoga πŸ˜›

        • Hmmm, maybe, just maybe, because you have seen temples and Gurudwaras as religion like around yourself, felt that this is religion while not so with mosques, but this theory sounds vague to me only.

          • That theory sounds just about right. Could actually be because of that reason. And with the world going so anti-Islam unofficially, there is a natural curiosity in that direction. Whether the religion itself says something of that sort, or is it the people who twist it to suit their hideous agendas.

            Good reasoning πŸ™‚

Have something to say? I would love to hear from you :)
