Diwali has come early to
All over the city, I could see well constructed footpaths and pavements and
I travel everyday on the routes that pass through the CWG lanes (dedicated parts of roads to ferry the CWG delegates). And every time I hear a loud siren it has become my nature to excitedly look around the Red Bus that carries the athletes in the hopes of catching their glimpse.
The Games have also made way for a number of colorful and amazing new modes of traveling in the city. First, we had the new “green lines” and the Metro, then came the air-conditioned big red DTC buses. With the games on, I got to see and experience the cute little e-rickshaws and the latest purple colored HOHO (hop-on hop-off) buses that take you to famous tourist destinations around the city (these buses remind me of the Knight Bus by the way!).
So this October, hop onto a HOHO, metro, the e-rickshaw or simply take the 11 number ki bus. But do take a dekko around the city that is decked like a bride. I sincerely hope we carry on keeping our dear city just as beautiful especially with the baap of all festivals-Diwali coming. But then again, enjoy it while it lasts….Happy
