WELCOME TO DELHI

Revived to pop out as an empty nester To accompany a newfangled life Maneuvered all the way for a change of state I dropped my bags and willed at country’s metropolis. The heirloom edifices occupying moiety of acreage Glossy crisscross roads and extended overpass Spic-and-span subway and the rushy blue line coaches Voguish three wheeled fares and snuggled DDA flats Yet an open blue sky and extreme deuce climate. The forenoon snarl – up and the crowded massed bus The traffic and the driver’s clapper claw The border red signal and the busy CP College bunkers to gates of malls Unitedly a fussy horologe. Where educatees hitting lectures and employes cogitating Schemers contriving at the parliament Few couples could be sighted antithetic though And rest chewing the fat. Republic march at the red fort And the day break Jama Masjid prayer, Incised India Gate boswell and The eventide light show at akshardham. Elementses unidentified at Qutub Minar And the muteness dwelled at the lotus temple, Savaged kingdom at Tuglakabad And exquisite ambiance of Humayun tomb, Concisely a grand metropolis Envied world-wide. Revived to pop out as an empty nester To accompany this newfangled life Maneuvered all the way for a change of state I dropped my bags and willed at country’s metropolis.
