Why I like the delhi metro

Maybe because I like to be among the crowd. Maybe I feel secure lost in the sea of humans. But I really like just getting on the metro and going for a ride to no particular destination. One gets to see people of different cultures and places of different cultures. One of my favorite routes is Dwarka sector 9, where I park my bike to Rajiv Chowk. One gets to see the urban scarcely populated Dwarka residential subtown before passing through crowded areas like Janakpuri, Rajouri garden etc. At jhandewalan, you are greeted by the huge statue of hindu god hanuman and you can always get down at Karol Bagh, one of the oldest marketplaces of delhi which still challenges malls with it’s agelessness. At ramakrishna ashram, the train goes underground before you reach Rajiv Chowk where you can go topside and visit my favorite place, Connaught Place.

The trains, apart from being clean and comfortable are also very punctual. I prefer to carry a smart card with me so that I don’t have to buy tokens everytime. I recommend that everyone ride the metro atleast once though if a ride’s all you’re looking for, prefer to do it on a weekday as weekends can be a crowded affair. Also, make the return journey at night when the trains’s almost empty.
