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! 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 moments 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! 😛 I mean, frankly, it has made the life in this city a lot easier. I wonder if I could have survived without it. 😛
So, not taking much time I say- Goodbye, Until I visit again!
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.
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! 😉
