@PinguicVerse @chhoti_vakeel Too many personal vehicles in Delhi. Wish there was a more thought-through public transport development.

@bhavyakhanna @lokallobaat I got delayed because of the bus timing. 5:30 would’ve been a better start — cooler Rajpath + cleaner air.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to PinguicVerse from Mahavir Enclave, New Delhi

@PinguicVerse Plus more people might join the breakfast. Which is why I turned down a similar offer at a friend’s place.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to PinguicVerse from Mahavir Enclave, New Delhi

@PinguicVerse Woah! So hard to turn this down, but you really shouldn’t underestimate 3-4 guys who want to sit and gorge after a looong run.

@jimanish First instinct was to call police. Another guy informed CATS but the PCR came first & I insisted on not waiting for the ambulance.
