This blog is in line with our commitment to help you experience Delhi as a real Dilliwalla. Here I go..

Anand Vihar Railway Terminal (Station)

 

It was my first visit to Anand Vihar Railway Terminal to see my mother off. Now, most of the east-bound trains start and end at this brand new terminal.

Camera Shopping in Delhi

 

For me buying a camera is a long and tedious process. Almost one and a half years back, I planned to upgrade to an SLR. After doing months of research I zeroed down to Nikon D5000. Nikon was my first choice despite being advised to buy Cannon by some of my friends, I just find the name and logo more appealing.
