Diffrent Shades of Delhi

RESTLESS SPIRIT BAR SHOP While my boyfriend and I were at the mechanics, getting a puncture fixed (yes again) I was busy clicking away. This scene caught my attention-it is something that happens almost everyday. In this picture, people are waiting for the liquor shop to open. It was 12:35 in the afternoon and the shop opens at 1:00 pm. You can see from the body language of the people how restless they were getting. As soon as the shop's shutters were up, the crowd was actually pushing and shoving (nothing new at all for us). Some people were so restless that the second they stepped out from the shop, they bought a Pet bottle of Pepsi from the departmental store right next to this one and made themselves a drink. I wanted to click that, but couldn't because I was getting dirty looks already

Traffic jam at Naraina flyover where construction is on for more than 2 years and because of this traffic jam is very common here. Looks like it will take few more months before construction is finally over.
