Arrow DRIVOBLOG® | Delhi Chronovisions 1986-2009

Delhi, (now rather NCR) is a Super-City.

It is said to be a place where people have 'BIG Hearts'.

Behind the Success of Delhi (apart from Historical reasons) was - it being the Capital of India, its Masterplanning, and its suburban sprawl enabling Industries and satellite townships to flourish around it.

"Delhi Chronovisions" shows attempts to showcase a little part of those very reflections between the years 1986-2009 from the eyes and mind of a small kid.

The Major Roads of Delhi are still able to accommodate the ever increasing vehicles because of efficient planning. Driving felt like 'Autopilot'.







Delhi has its multi-blended and matured Hindi accent, I feel - the best in the country.

Very interesting. Does New Delhi still have independent houses?

The only memory I have of the music cassette is the player chewing up the tape!

This one is brilliant Basu !!

Brings back so many old memories - it was deja vu to see the HeMan & GIJOE & Wonder Years photo. Kept looking at the photos and kept smiling

Painstakingly done by you. Thanks !! Rating this a 5 star and sharing it with other friends.

CR park has a few. I love those corner houses of CR park. Makes me want to go to Delhi and catch up with my chum there.
Hey TB, how come there's no photo of M Block market of GK II? That's my favourite haunt 10 years back.

Great one TB! How about Hauz Khaz? CP? Karol Bagh? Any part II of this saga?

I am told that Nirulas have re-designed themselves in a different way and are still popular. There used be one icecream parlour in CP called Cafe 100 which used to serve a product called Milkfood 100%.

There are still many independent houses in Delhi unlike other cities. But new developments (read Gurgaon/Noida) are all flats. Unless one wants to shell a few crores to buy those independent houses called villas.
