When I was in first year college, Euphoria came out with their first album Dhoom. It had this song about Delhi that entranced me even back then. Ten years later the Commonwealth Games adopted it as a theme song. It was an ode to Delhi. Yeh sheher meri jaan iska naam hai meri pehechaan.

It’s been a difficult three years, but nights like tonight, when I’m driving down from lado sarai to chattarpur as the fog rolls in and I have to show down to thirty and put my blinkers on, when my parking lot looks like this, I fall in love with Delhi all over again.
