Metro-politan


If you want to take a ride of the Delhi city skyline, you don't need a helicopter. Delhi Metro hai na!

As the train makes it way from station to station, you are presented with a sea of small and big houses, slums, malls, office complexes, towers, bridges in the distance, roads with the usual bustling traffic of Delhi...etc etc. It's like going through a synopsis of the city.

Especially when you travel early in the morning, the city can be a real sight. Unfortunately I was going for an exam and I did not have my camera with me. I missed some good clicks :(

Metro makes me really proud of being a part of this city. Every single time I travel in the Metro, I feel exultant. Not that Delhi is the first city to have it...its the fact that 6 years into operation its still not corrupted. Every station is still clean....I'm so glad that despite the fact that every section of the society travels in the Metro, you still won't find blobs of goo on the walls and people pushing each other. Atleast people realize that it's a place for the civilized. I wish they showed respect to the rest of the city in the same way!

I just cannot wait for the NOIDA Metro line to start. It will mean easy access to shopping hubs and far away hang out zones. We're bored of Noida...aren't we folks?!!

Not everyone is bored of Noida.
But I must say that comparing the sight from a metro to synopsis of a city is quite thoughtful.

It may be true that the people at metro are behaving themselves but it may also be true that the government is taking good care of the place while the people remaining same as everywhere. I think for civilized environment the government and people should make efforts together at all places. Nice description!!
I see that you were totally lost with the beautiful sight but was it of any help during the exam :D??

Agree the metro is beautiful and much-needed in Delhi... but I think the whole project still hasn't broken even (financially speaking)?
