CNG Outlets in Delhi

Compressed Natural Gas is seen as a cheap alternative to petrol in Delhi nowadays. It is also a green fuel in the sense that the gas burns much more cleanly than either petrol or diesel. However, for most people in Delhi, the usage is more due to the cheap nature of the fuel rather than any perceived environmental benefits. Otherwise why would people use a fuel that has so many weaknesses overall:
- CNG in most pumps does not fill more than 8 KG out of the standard 12 KG cylinder
- One KG takes a normal petrol vehicle for around 10-15 KM per KG, so a total of approx 100 KM between refills (not much if you consider that a vehicle can easily go 50 KM in a day in Delhi)
- Filling time in most pumps in Delhi is around 30 minutes
But it is cheap, with the 8 KG not costing more than 19 Rs / Kg, so a total of Rs. 152 for every visit to the pump.

There is always a quest to find the locations of more CNG pumps in Delhi so that you can try and get a pump that has a lower queue, or that can pump upto 10 KG in the tank. Here is a link to the Indraprastha Gas Ltd (IGL) map of petrol pumps in Delhi (link).

The pleasures of India Gate

Imagine a place where there is a kilometer long lane of cars parked on both sides of the road, where there is a large number of Delhi's families coming there with just family members, or with extended family to spend a fun filled evening. There is ice-cream, cold drinks, and many kinds of small snacks available over there. And the place is slightly colder than the heat of the city. And of course, there are the wide green lawns, and a beautifully lighted India Gate at one end, and the lighting of the North Block / South Block at the other end.
When we reached there, parking was an issue; there were so many people who had already reached there. Eventually we found parking closer to the Boat Club side, and then walked to the India Gate side. The sight that we saw brought a lot of smiles - there were kids playing football (with other kids or with an indulgent elder\parent), there were extended families playing either cards or antakshari (a songalathon) with sheets spread on the greenery.
And then there were the families with extended eating plans - bed sheets, tiffin carriers, casseroles, big jars full of either water or some sort of liquid, topped with ice cream from the large number of ice cream vendors selling their wares. In the partial darkness of the night, one could also see something lighted suddenly going up in the air and coming down again. Getting closer, one could clearly see that these were actually kids toys. We did not do most of these things, but just indulged in walking casually from one end to the other end (tip: I think that the lighting of the India Gate gets turned off at 10 PM, since that is what actually happened dot at 10 PM). Other than that, some chanas and some stale bhelpuris were consumed.
While watching all these families enjoying themselves, I also thought about the people who were all doing the selling, whether that be the ice cream sellers, the people selling the snacks, or the people selling the toys; and the policemen over there who were there to help others. These people, watching entire families enjoying themselves, must be feeling something - or maybe they have spent so much time that they no longer feel different (but I doubt that).

Chutneez in V3S East Center Mall

For some time now, I have been eying the V3 East Center Mall in Laxmi Nagar in East Delhi. East Delhi does not have many good restaurants (in fact, very few), and it has always been a quest to figure out where one can go to when one wants to go out. Many times, we have ended up ordering food rather than going out. Some of the places where we have gone to are: Pacific Mall (Food Court - decent; Yellow Chili - Good; Moti Mahal Delux - So So; EDM Food court - not so good; Sagar Ratna (Vikas Marg and Galaxie Mall) - Decent; Nirulas - Seen better days; McDonald's - Okay; Galaxie other restaurants - avoidable; Ansal Plaza at Vaishali - avoidable; Cross river food court - just about okay; Cross river top fine dining restaurant - avoid; Pacific Bridge - avoid, etc).
So there was this new Chutnees restaurant that opened in the V3S Mall at the end of Lakhmi Nagar, next to PSK and close to the Preet Vihar market. It seemed to be decent from outside (right next to the Moti Mahal restaurant), and the feeling that this would be a good deal increased as we went inside. The decor inside is a bit mixed, with a floor somewhat resembling a club (including a small depressed center area), big windows, books on financial matter near the entrance, and a mixed seating area with tables either having chairs, or individual sofas.
So we sat, and they handed us book size menus, with a combination of Indian and Chinese food (but no alcohol - only mocktails). Since it was late, we did not take any starters, just food. The food was good (no doubts whatsoever), but there were 2 contra points:
1. Even though there were only 3 families at that time, it still took more than 20 minutes for them to get the food (in all honesty, they said that it would take 20 minutes)
2. The quantities were a bit small, and that always makes you a bit dissatisfied.
But everything else was fine; the nans and rotis were great, the waiters were attentive. In the end, they left me confused since they charged a 5% service charge, so not sure whether to leave a tip or not. Overall food price was Rs. 900.
The saunf that they gave when we leaving was superb. And then, the kulfis that we ate outside the restaurant (just at the entrance to the mall) were great.

Pleasure of eating from the local chole-kulche wala

It's a hot Delhi season, and one is wondering as to what to eat in the daytime. Sometimes one feels that eating the regular roti-sabji can be a bit too much, and one would like to have a break. A break does not always mean going off to the local pizza joint or the local heavy food stuff; instead there is the pleasure of going off to the local chole-kulche waala.
Many of you would know what I am talking about. There is the guy having the 4 wheeled cart (thela) on which there is a large amount of stuff, one of which is a shiny big brass round vessel in which there is a large number of boiled chole. He has parked himself under the closest leafy tree, and has several cylindrical utensils in which there are many different spices, salt, a liquid that is used to wet the dry chole. So, when you go to such a guy to get food, you will find him skilfully mixing the dry chole with the spices, mix in some salt, add some liquid and some lime, and then add in chopped onion and tomato along with some coriander, and it's ready.
He will also have a small burner with him on which heats up some low fat kulche (as opposed to the oil laden bhature), and wraps the whole thing for you in a small curved plate made of leaves. And that is it, enjoy this delicious meal (for the small charge of Rs. 10).

Kaaya Clinic in Delhi

The Kaaya Clinics are a range of clinics that have come to prominence pretty recently. They do a range of treatments including skin care (acne, shining back skin, unwanted hair removal, making skin glow, etc), anti-ageing signs (facial skin rejuvenation, revitalization of tired eye), hair treatment, and so on.
'Kaya’ connotes 'body' or 'appearance' in Sanskrit. A clear and flawless skin is the most attractive aspect of an individual’s appearance. From the website, here is the method used by the Kaaya Clinics:
- A visit to Kaya begins with a skinscription, which is a private consultation with our in-clinic dermatologist.
- The dermatologist analyzes your skin and designs a customized skincare program that delivers maximum benefits.
- This includes services that are ideally suited to your skin type and offer you visible results.
- The result is to visibly improve the way your skin looks, acts and feels.
- To help you maintain the results you have achieved, we also offer a range of skincare products.
