Cutlets at CR Park are always a treat. Quite close to the real thing while staying right here in Delhi.

How can I get myself invited to the Russian Center film screenings? Last time I inquired, it was members-only. Any guest list which I can try to get my name on?

Hey, come to Basant Lok again some time no? Also, inform beforehand - I can then pretend to accidentally bump into you.

Really nice style. The Delhi Walla seems to know every nook & cranny in Delhi! Would be looking forward to hearing from him during the Commonwealth Games :)

The Dilli wallah knows more about Delhi than the Delhi Police itself.
