A year and half ago I landed in Delhi with lots of ambitions, dreams, notions and all those starry eyed expressions which all coming from a small town to a metro bring with them. But the story has a twist, I, an innate self confessed foodie, was also lured and dying to experience the cuisine of Delhi, a hundred year old capital with lots of options to explore.
Like every Bollywood movie my voyage in Delhi began with hope and plans but a tragic twist awaited me at my workplace where no one was interested to venture out in the streets and help me explore Delhi and to add to the grief I had no friends in Delhi whom I could rely upon. I, a hardcore optimist, tried ways and means to coax my team mates but all was in vain.
So the tragedy struck and for the first six months I was forced to eat the bland food with no exciting take of flavors of Delhi, just the occasional spree to the Golgappa-vala was a reprieve from the tragic story.
Then one fine day a savior emerged, Blue, every one’s favorite, gleaming one, encounters with this savior are restricted at my work place but some sneak peaks can always be managed. All thanks to Mr Zuckerburg for developing Facebook wherein I was introduced to the Food Enthusiasts In Delhi, a whole group of whopping thousands of foodies actually enthusiastic to explore FOOD.
Food Enthusiasts of Delhi or Eatlo as they are famous became my one stop destination to ogle at and explore Delhi’s Cuisine. A simple innocent “Facebook Like” opened me to a world of foodies who ventured out together to explore and gorge food whereever or whichever corner of Delhi it was available.
One fine Sunday morning I became a part of an event or Eat up as it is called at Chandni Chownk I was accompanied by 20 odd people majority never had met each other but lip smacking food made us all comfortable and with one mission we all ventured into the deserted streets of Chandni Chownk exploring and robbing every nook and corner for food in any and every form.
By the end of the day I had gorged and satiated my taste buds to the fullest and had also made some friends. It was like a super deal for me, like god had suddenly heard my prayers and bestowed upon me all what I wanted along with a human touch in the so called inhuman Delhi
I realized in this world with internet and social media Impossible actually itself says I am possible. People fear security in Delhi especially when amongst strangers but I discovered that social media made peoples’ human also made them lose their ego and boundaries. We had everyone helping out each other some living nearby offering rides back home and eminent professionals and mere ones like me mingling and eating together whereas under any ordinary circumstance we would never have even spoken to each other.
Mr Zuckerburg should indeed be blessed with not only wealth but lots of blessings for rendering hope and making the dreams of millions come true with his blue colored angel.
Hail Facebook and Mr Zuckerburg.
