"Delhi is not far away"

The capital city of India - Delhi- has many a nice things about it. The Taj Mahal is nearby in Agra. Its got big roads and is the centre of power. The Sikh taxi drivers are good fun friends to chat away with and the food there is always plenty, warm & cheap. And I have had many a good friends who have lived there. Many of them, when we are together, have a big heart and ready to go a long way for a friend.

But still... an idea to visit Delhi always depresses me. It just makes me feel so estranged. Something disturbs ...

Today, I read an article in the Deccan Herald paper that kind of expresses what I feel. Having read it I feel much at peace ... like a mystery unlocked.

Too true! I think it is like this everywhere, or at least in every major city. Especially the part about the city not wanting you or having any use for you unless you have money.

So many people move to cities looking for a better life only to find the fast pace of it all and expense of living destroying themselves and their attitude toward life in general.

Yes...very much. City life is almost like smoking sometimes. Maybe when people move in from Villages over to a city we should have a entry sign: Welcome to the Big City. But read this WARNING: City life can hurt you and those around you seriously! Its known to cause heart problems...
