So KT and I were talking on Sunday and I just mentioned to him that I wanted to go to Delhi for a do a bit of shopping for the pretty ethnic handicrafts, trinkets and because its location is so perfect to travel to so many places that I want to visit in Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh that I’m unable to do so because its so far off from Madras and would definitely entail more than a night’s travel.

Monday evening at 6 pm, I get a call from a manager in our Delhi office asking me to be there the next day.

And that’s how people I find myself in dusty Gurgaon for the next four days. Would love to explore Delhi (and not the idiot malls of Gurgaon). But I suspect I’m going to be holed up in this fancy glass building for most of my stay. Having assured people that I won’t venture out by myself in the night as Delhi is the Most Dangerous City in the World and that I would wear a sweater (!!) as it can get cold, I really don’t think I am going to get any time to do anything!
