People of Delhi

Delhi is often seen as the city of rich and powerful. It is known for its ill-mannered people and their brashness; their new money and their ‘show off culture’. (In)famous for  rudeness and in-your-face attitudes, known for hostility and competitiveness.

But is that all that the people of Delhi are about? What about the invisible men who run the city —  the engines that pumps oil into the machinery, the wheels that run the vehicle.

While we do rant and rave about the who’s who, why not spare a minute to look at those who are nothing.

Ram Laddo, a fried dumpling of lentils served with green chutney and grated radish,  and Shakarkandi ki chaat, a mish mash of roasted sweet potatoes, serve as a cheap quick and nutritious snack for the men on the go — also bring employment to many.

The Dog is fed too — free of cost. The humans however have to pay a small price for Mong Dal Chaat, a mixture of lentils, chopped vegetables, and lime.
