Dilli Diaries – Day 1 Part 1

So as you may know, or not, I was in Delhi for 4 days and whether you care, or not, I am going to blog about it. Its my blog dammit! So you better start caring or I will kick you off it, Ok?

Now that we are clear on that lets proceed. So I went to Delhi. Why? None of your business! But I will tell you any way. It was NJ’s wedding! Who is NJ? WTF! You read my blog and you don’t know who is NJ!!!! Shame on you! She is one of my bestest friends. So it was NJ’s wedding and it was in Delhi. Why in Delhi? Gah! Fuck you, I am not answering all your questions dammit!

So I had booked my flight for 2 pm on Go Air. Two days before the journey, I get an SMS that “the flight has been cancelled due to reasons beyond control of Go Air”. %$#$@$#%$#%$ WTF??? Reason beyond control…hmmm…..like not enough tickets sold? Any way I called the dumb fucks up and requested to be put on 12:40 flight. The lady said she would send me a confirmation on my phone and email within 3 hours. That was easy! Or was it?

5 hours gone and nothing on phone or email. I should have known! Called up again, got lots of apologies and the same promise. Woke up next day. Same old story, no sms or email. WTF! Them bastards! Called up again, this time the guy bothered to confirm my email. The email they had on record was [email protected]. WTF??? The idiots had sent me the tickets for the now-cancelled-flight on my right email and they were sending the tickets for my now-confirmed-flight to a wrong email? How the fuck did they manage that? Any way gave them the right email, got same apologies and stuff. I have plenty apologies from Go Air now, any one wants to buy them?

Finally printed the e-ticket, reached home and slept. Woke up in the morning and realized I had to pack. Argh! I recalled the trip to Delhi I made in December 2007 and remember how my unmentionables had almost frozen that time. Hurriedly I packed the heaviest clothes I could find in to a bag, rushed to Sardar’s house and picked up the jacket he used to wear in London and headed to the airport.

Reached airport, checked in my luggage, passed the security check without being molested or asked to remove my shoes. Killed some time drinking black coffee and staring back at people who were staring at me. Of course my dear D2 was giving me company all the while. The boarding call was 20 minutes late but soon I found myself in the aisle seat of emergency exit with loads of leg room! Sweet innit? What happened next? Wait for the plane to land, electronic equipments not allowed to be used during the flight idiot!

    who s NJ again? 😛 And u have to use a jacket used in London, as london england I supposed ;), to warm India? what kind of ‘cold temperature’ can u get in Delhi?

  • Tazeen

    Did you manage to land in Delhi or was it too foggy to land as it always in in December and January. I have had serious nightmares about getting stuck at Delhi, it has happened way too many times.

  • Preeti

    Why are you blaming GoAir and their goof -ups? Ha? Your lastminuteness is what gets you into trouble…?
    I refuse to believe that you passed security in such a lukha manner…!!!

    @d gyspsy:

    Oh I havent even started yet, just wait and read! Dill will be fun for you as long you are home before sunset or carry a licenced gun with you.

    I will be back there next month for 4 days.


    Cold enough to freeze my unmentionables! Remember I am living in mumbai and its 30 degree winter 😛


    Surprisingly the 4 days I was there were as clear as they could have been.

  • Che


    Nah, it was actually quite boring landing, no bone jarring touchdown, no near-miss, no blowing engines, no emergency evacuation or any other usual stuff.

    @Still Running:

    Well unless you enjoy waddling around like the Michelin Man or need cold as an excuse to get drunk you may not enjoy the sardi as much as you think.


    Sweetheart Delhi’s windchill can be equally annoying.

    In as in you got the admission?

    India get ready for a sexual revolution! LM is coming.

  • Che


    No no, i am usually in this state all the time…grumpy old man.


    WHat latminutedness? I booked flight 3 days in advance dammit!

    well we indian arent really known for security, are we?

  • Still thinking

    I’m sure you didn’t get a chance to use Sardar’s jacket – plz tell me I’m wrong.

    P.S: The security is good dammit! They almost made me throw the cakes and prawn cutlets my maa packed for me.

  • Bubbly Vodka

    Lol. Beyond Go Air’s reasons eh. Like the skies have come falling down and now we cannot fly. I was thinking of catching a Go Air flight for a trip of mine. I should rethink.

  • Che


    I did wear it! It wasnt like super heavy or anything, just a jacket.

    PS: Thats cuz they wanted all the yummy food for themselves 😉

    Still@Still :

    Yea its sad that they cannot tell us really why the flight got cancelled. Its not like if i didnt like the reason i would set the plane on fire!

  • Che

    I’d do anything to run away from here for a few days man!

  • Cess

    Oh yeah i forgot ++Remember I am living in mumbai and its 30 degree winter :P++ *silly me* 30 degree in winter in ireland would be global warming and mostly kill 75% of the population, the remaining 25% are foreigners 🙂

  • Quirky Indian

    I can see another Goa-type series coming up. 😉
    So don’t keep us waiting too long for Day 1 Part 2. I’m always keen to know what sensible people (yup, I think you’re one, though I might be wrong)have to say about the Dally.
