South Delhi pre poll analysis

A  bad back forces me take more walks in the neighbourhood parks, but then I get to hear gems like these.

Solo dining for women in Delhi : Illustrations for the BBC

A while back, I illustrated a piece for the BBC about the experience of solo dining in New Delhi 
for women. A couple of the restaurants mentioned there are no names in the piece, but for 
anyone who has been in Delhi for a while, it is pretty obvious) still remain my favorite places 
to go to, but perhaps, the experience of eating there alone might be different. You can read the
 piece by Anasuya Basu here.

Dear nice man in Delhi

I wrote and illustrated this piece that appeared in the express a few weeks back. An informed reader pointed out a faux-pas. 'Kahin-door' is not sung by Kishore Kumar, but by Mukesh. My apologies for the same. In my weak defense, I quoted the nice man verbatim :).
