It was as crowded as it could be. The only saving grace was that it had become cloudy the moment I had stepped out of the car! It wasn’t how it used to be. There was no space to move around. If that was not all, the things were exorbitantly high priced. A bedside carpet that is available for INR800 without bargain was priced at INR2400. It was dusty, noisy and extremely chaotic. Going to Sarojini Nagar and Dilli Haat is the best option to enjoy, shop and spend time.
The 1st time I had gone to this place was 14 years back. I had bought a small cane stool. My landlady had made her son sit on it no sooner I had stepped inside my house then- something I had not appreciated. I mean, it was supposedly my find. I bought yet another one this time. A miniature piece- all of 8 X 8 inches in dimension. No one will be able to sit on it. A deja vu had also struck. I had seen that lake before too. I remember having walked down the entire stretch to go and sit on the stairs surrounding the lake. There were deers and swans around.
Amidst the whole un- organized fair to promote handicrafts, I could steal a few moments to capture myself. I have always adored Lord Krishna- he still remains to be my big time crush. So this time, I posed as Radha.. 🙂 After that Deja vu had struck me, I decided to leave. The deer made its appearance to probably tell me I was right about it. On my way back, I spotted a “Women Only” auto rickshaw on MG road more towards Gurgaon. I have hung that tree in my bedroom.
