There is only one thing I can do better in Delhi. Taking public transport. Public transport is easier to handle if you know the local language. And Metro is really cool, despite the heavy traffic on Noida line!
But otherwise, in everything else – I am missing Bangalore. What can be more ironical than me practically getting looted in digitally printing a few posters here. Boom! At least the digital print shops in Bangalore have clearly laid out fixed prices. Even these businesses are run by the old-economy rules in Delhi 😦
Pragati Maidan food outlets are very bad too. Overpriced, ordinary food and they randomly change prices. For the same ice-cream, I have paid 3 different prices by now; have bought sandwich at two different prices. For the sandwiches, I am going to buy them only at the metro station I daily walk to. Exactly the same sandwich (they all seem to have the same provider) for which I paid a minimum of 30 Rs. inside the maidan was for Rs. 10 there. And I mean it – EXACTLY.
These are some of the things I never thought you had to bargain for!
I want to be back in Bangalore. NOW 😦
