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.
