If you want to have a taste of the rich and varied flavours of India, then, you must visit its capital. Every Delhiite has this soft corner for the gush of the magical winds that engulf your spirit with warmth and appreciation for life. Even if you are not very fond of big crowds and bustling roads, you will be smitten by the in-despicable charm of Saadi Dilli. Whether you are traveling in a metro train, bargaining in the flea markets, gorging on spicy chaat, snapping the evergreen smiles, earning blessings at a holy place or watching the pigeons being fed, you will be amazed how this city can reflect the warmth and enticing beauty of the whole world.If you are unsure about where to start, touch your heart and jump into central Delhi. Roam around the circles of Connaught Place as your eyes glue to the luxury offered by the various brands, click some weird selfies in front of India’s largest tricolour flag and spot tourists swoon over the huge , bright and gorgeous showpieces on offer here by countless vendors. As you hone your bargaining skills at Janpath, munch over some hot steaming momos and sip some heavenly cold coffee by Depaul’s. The best part about the flea markets in Delhi is that at a small cost, they offer materials of a high quality which follow the latest trends putting the D&G's of this world to shame (seriously). After witnessing the buzzing streets, walk into the tranquility of Agrasen ki Baoli. As you hold the hands of your loved one and step down, you’ll encounter a wave of mysterious calm. One can spend hours here just sitting. To seek blessings and taste some mouthwatering Langar, the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib welcomes you with open arms. Don’t forget to sit besides the Sarovar and gaze at the spiritual water that will settle your all confusions and bring you closer to your inner self. Your next destination has to be the Humayun’s Tomb. Do not forget to take your camera to shoot some of the best shots for your gallery. From the moment you enter inside to the gates you bid goodbye, you will be in constant awe. The majestic walls of the tomb, the impeccably maintained lush green gardens , the random saplings emerging from the wall, the hint of power of the mughal rulers, the spotting of migratory birds and the magnificent architecture will all blow your cells and captivate your senses. You will run out of your camera battery, you will get tired after exploring each and every corner of its magic but your heart will long for more. In the end, you will be left hungry. Not to worry! Just take an auto and enter the famous Khan Market. Even though there are many food options, as soon as you cross by Khan Chacha, the aroma of the kebabs, rolls and biryani will tempt you above everything else. If you are a meat lover, you will be thankful to the universe for letting you savour the best chicken tikkas, mutton kebabs and biryani. Mark this day as one of the best of your life for witnessing great history and food.For Delhites of my age great food will forever be a life saver. So when I visited the North Campus of Delhi University, I was in for some real fun. A reflection of the latest fashion trends, cool slangs and an array of sumptuous eateries with exquisite ambiance. Be it the masala momos at Momo’s Point, excellent Chinese at QDs or tangy drinks at Ricos, you will be thoroughly exultant. In the end to digest your food and have a sight of nature, walk in the beautiful woods of the Aravali ridge. Then there is the not–village-at –all Hauz Khas village. Be it the deer park with the grandeur of the lake, the innocent deers, sweet birds or the graceful peacocks or the majestic Hauz Khas fort, you will feel blessed for each moment of your visit. You just can’t miss the famous café's and restaurants with elegant ambiance, whacky style and mindblowing dishes. But the best of all for me was the Akshardham temple. Any form of praise would fail to describe the phenomenal architecture, the very detailed sequences, eye-bobbling texture and impeccable maintenance. It surely for me tops them all. The pull is that as the cameras and cell phones are not allowed, you will not waste your time clicking selfies or browse social networks but will meditate your way to comeliness of each inch of this temple. With all this and a lot and lot to offer, you are surely going to have a very different experience with a guaranteed visual treat. There is no depression which cannot be healed by traveling and that too to such an enchanting place. Pull up your socks, put on some make up and discover your journey of happiness and pleasure!

Swim into the pool of peace.
