Hello there! 🙂
Long time, no see. Well, yes, I do take the responsibility of not being around but I would rather make good use of whatever time I got here today. 🙂 Before I begin, I just wanted to say that I have made some really good bonds over the internet through this blog and I never ever expected that! Now this has become something I look forward to as part of writing here. So, if you missed reading the posts or just wish to say hi or anything else really, please do drop a comment. It will certainly make my day!
About this post, I know a few readers here who love my Delhi posts more than anything else. Probably, they turn out the best too because I love them a lot myself. As some of you have heard a million times already, I LOVE exploring places and cultures and, of course, writing about them and shooting them.
This reminds me that I finally got a DSLR. 😀 I know many people here were tired of hearing me crib about not having one. Let’s see how that goes. I really had no time to learn its workings so far and I think it has already been 2 months!
Cutting the blabber right here, this is what I did on a warm autumn afternoon in Delhi when I had to meet a very good friend of mine.
I think you will like this little photo walk. (Yes, the pictures are taken with the new camera).
We first went to the Shri Bangla Sahib Gurudwara in the heart of Delhi, Connaught Place. For those of you who don’t know, Gurudwaras are praying shrines for primarily the Sikh community. But some of us who have been brought up in a Punjabi culture do visit them too.
As far as Delhi is concerned, it is so cosmopolitan that you will see people of all sorts visiting all sorts of shrines, irrespective of their faith (or lack thereof).
Look at the beautiful lake inside the Gurudwara.
After this, we moved towards one of my favorite places in Delhi. Guess, guess. I can’t wait anyway. The Oxford Bookstore or ‘Cha Bar’, the very famous bookstore cum cafe famous for the n types of teas or ‘chai’ it stocks up on.
This blue part of the bookstore is super enticing. Look at how beautiful and colorful it is with all the kids’ books. *Sigh*
What is only barely visible in the picture is that baby blue colored pool-like sitting arrangement. It’s one of the coolest ways to sit around in a bookstore (but I am not too sure if people sit inside that cavity as I never saw anyone doing that).
The lighting arrangement at the cafe was on point, what with the Diwali theme going on. That girl with a cap is one of the servers.
That’s just me trying different lighting.
I am sorry for not having any food photos. We were too hungry to click when the food came in.
Oh, by the way, this piece of art right at the entrance was a little scary. Does she not look like a real human being? Oh, well.
That’s pretty much it. I hope you enjoyed this, really. 🙂

Lovely pics! Pinterest has very interesting tutorials on using a dslr. I use the cheat sheets from over there.
PB!! Thank you so much for the tip that sounds super handy but i hate pinterest for not letting me browse without creating an account 😛 the reason i am not creating one is obvious, ill be addicted to one more after instagram and i really have no time for that. hence, will wait. 😀
I have a bunch of cheat sheets. I will email them to you on Monday.
