Goodbye, Until I Visit Again- #DelhiDiary



Hey all, It’s been a long long time since I told you a story about this city and showed you some place. But today I write not to discover a new place but to say this place a goodbye, which was home for me for past four months. Well, Delhi finally made a special place in my heart with tons of new memories to be held closer to my heart. I never thought my stay here would be so eventful, that each week will unfold a new me! As I said, this city now holds a place in my memories but still I would say I didn’t fall in love with the city as I had with the previous cities I had lived in. But as the time flew, staying here and being here became more of a routine. I accept I hated this city before I have arrived here (Yes, I am guilty of judging it before even living here) but then sometimes instincts don’t go with the logics!

Within this short span of time I met most of friends whom I haven’t met in months and years, I explored this city as much time could allow, I shed my inhibitions to explore the new me and got out of my comfort zone to attend awesome blogger meets! This stay ended with a surprise family trip to Rishikesh and Haridwar (you will hear about it soon) escaping the heat!! Apart from the fun I had here, this city taught me a few things too. It brought me a step closer to the corporate life. It wasn’t as hectic as it will be in future but surely it’s better if we go step by step, taking a little each time… It taught me to balance out my time between my work, my family, my friends and my passions. There were times when I felt I couldn’t do it anymore but then at the end of it now I find myself another step closer to being independent.

When I boarded the train to head home, saying goodbye did hurt a little. It wasn’t a teary goodbye but still it felt like I was leaving behind a part of me! ย After all it was my home for last few months. I feel weird saying it but yes, I will miss it. As I walk forward, I will keep glancing back at those momentsย which made me smile. And what was the best thing about the city if you ask me, then not getting emotional I would say- Metro! It has to be! ๐Ÿ˜› I mean, frankly, it has made the life in this city a lot easier. I wonder if I could have survived without it. ๐Ÿ˜›

So, not taking much time I say- Goodbye, Until I visit again!ย 

We can never really say goodbye to a city because we never know when we will walk back to revisit the old memories or create new ones.

Take Care, ย 

Sending love.


P.S: I had vowed to write each of my experience in the pages of #DelhiDiary but as life intervened the pages were unintentionally left blank. But as now life gets back on track, I decide to fill them now. So, be tuned for the remaining pages of the Diary. It’s goodbye to Delhi but not to the Diary yet! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. There is a saying Nibha “home is where your heart is.” May you be at peace in finding your true home. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your story on leaving Delhi reminds me a bit of when I left Graz in Austria, except that I actually cried and lots of tears. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was very sudden and unexpected. The only thing that I wondered – came to mind – was if i had lived there before in a previous life. Otherwise, how else can you make sense of this unusual experience?! <3

  2. Good you enjoyed and had a good time in delhi.. and yeah will come to read about those experiences as and when you get time to write them

    All the best

  3. So its time to say good bye to Delhi? That means you are coming to Bangalore soon, no? Yay! ๐Ÿ˜€ oops. Sorry but I am happy you will be closer to me now ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Happy you had a good time , and I agree . the metro there was awesome! The good thing is, like you say, you can always go back and visit- in your mind . or even in real life. Happy new adventures:-)

  5. Delhi is one place that is associated with a lot of pain for me. Every time I leave that city, it is with relief. But I’m glad you enjoyed it.
    I agree with Elly. Home is where the heart is. I used to think I left my heart in Kanpur years ago, but finally, I’ve found it again in Jaipur.
