Hmm. You guys really have me curious about Delhi. Need to visit it sometime. Haven't been there since 1994. I sure that it is beyond all recognition.
Yeah.. If we need to thank the NDA and Vajpayee and Kandhuri from the bottom of our heards, it is the highway system. Kangress would not have shifted it's arse and got working on it for a million years. Enternally grateful for that
