Connaught Place: Delhi’s thumping heart
A Day out at North Campus, DU
If you have not explored North Delhi yet then it is about time you do. There is a lot that this place can offer in terms of places to see, shopping areas as well wonderful eateries and restaurants. Clean wide roads with various colleges under Delhi University, North Delhi’s North Campus is definitely worth more than one visit.
From Shawarma worth Rs. 35 to summer dresses worth Rs.400, the place is flooded mostly with students.

Roshnara Bagh
While on a visit, you can visit the grand park made by the government. You can easily take beautiful evening strolls in this open park with beautiful flowers and lanes made for joggers and people who want to leisurely spend their evenings.

Ridge Road
Returning from North campus without visiting Ridge Road would be a grave mistake. A perfect hang out place for families, couples and friends, the entrance to the park in Ridge Road has a considerable number of monkeys. But the walk in the park once inside is bound to be peaceful and if you are lucky you may also spot peacocks here.

Kamla Nagar Market
People shopping on a budget can actually find lots of trendy stuff right outside Adidas, UCB, Shoe Tree and other such swanky showrooms. From leggings to tank tops to hot pants to summer dresses to colourful wallets and even shoes and flip flops, you can find just about anything in these makeshift shops which have items priced roughly between Rs. 200 to Rs. 750.
You can also walk in to Miss Jo for accessories, jewellery and eyewear. Or if you want to get adventurous then try shopping for jewellery from small little shops that are huddled along the
Bungalow road.
The market is also ideal for picking home furnishing items. You can find beautiful lamps, pillow cases, sheets and other items to decorate the interiors of your home.

Big Yellow Door (BYD)
This place deserves special mention when it comes to sumptuous food at affordable cost. A meal for two here would cost you around Rs.500. The place is almost always packed with all kinds of people starting from students to families to even foreigners. Apart from scrumptious pastas, the place also serves mouth watering burgers. Do try the cheese bomb burger when you are at BYD. Order flavoursome shakes too along with your food. The cold coffee here is really amazing. However, if you are planning to visit, you should be ready to wait to get a table. Patience after all pays and in this case the wait is totally worth it.

Food, food and food…
While you are on your shopping spree, you can munch on the popular momos that a man serves in a crammed spot on the lane lined with book stores. Wash it down with the local lemon soda or ‘bantas’ that are easily available at every corner. You could also try the bhel puris here. The market is renowned for the chat as well. Yet another food item to try are the shawarmas sold in a makeshift shop tucked away in one of the narrow lanes of the market.

Once exhausted from shopping, you can give your feet a little rest by enjoying some Chinese food at QD’s. Do try the Tandoori momos – most people flock to the place especially for these specially made momos. Although the market has these big food chains like KFC, McDonald’s, Costa Coffee and Berco’s, the little eateries can offer better options and unique dishes at reasonable rates.

A lot of newly established restaurants have mushroomed in Hudson Lane. For a variety of cuisines, for instance, you can try Taxi restaurant. You can find, North Indian, Chinese, Lebanese, Mexican as well as Italian dishes here. Two things to try here would be the lasagne and the Singapore Chowmein.

For Korean dish lovers, mayo rice from Kori’s would definitely be inviting. If you are looking for Naga cuisine then you can go to Bamboo hut. Popular for its pork dishes, you should try the pork ribs, bamboo shoot pork and pork fried rice here.

If you are wandering around the campus and want to eat something, preferably vegetarian then you could also venture into the railway canteen in Arts Faculty. The place is known for its greasy but yummy choley bhature. What is more the food yet will not cost you beyond Rs. 70 to 80. Traffic Jam a popular shake that is available in almost all juice shops is also worth tasting. In fact it is actually filling. And after you are done, you can join the many youngsters who are quite often found enjoying a game of carom or just take a long stroll or just hang out underneath huge trees that are planted all across.

The Hell Race
The Hell Race 2015, this season, will be a 3 days event from December 5 to December 7. It will be held in the Dhauladhar range of Himalayas. The track is a combination that has a stiff uphill to test your mental strength, a fast paced downhill to get your adrenaline pumping & a technical single-track with broken rocks, flowing water streams, hanging bridges and fallen trees.

This isn’t just a bike race. The race would reach to the next level when you will face some non rideable patches in the track. There you would carry your bike on your shoulders & walk to cross and complete the same. So get set, register and prepare yourself for one hell of the race and put yourself to test in the worst.
Earning a ‘Finisher Tag’ would be nonetheless a pride of achieving the invincible.

Theatre Weekend

(Hindi) Taj Mahal Ka Tender: What would have been the fate of Shah Jahan's Taj Mahal had the emperor lived in the present times? That's the theme of this hilarious burlesque. The persistent Shahjahan, in no mood to accept excuses for delays, sends the Government construction department into a tizzy. The engineers and overseers get down to business to fulfill emperor's wish, as if they really could. An outbreak of activities ensue but in typified sarkari manner. Tenders are issued. Contractors are hired. But, does the project see light of the day? Or, does the mogul emperor, fast forwarded in the time, become a victim of the system himself? Whatever may happen to the wonder tomb, but the lofty laughter castles are assured, as the curtain raises on 'Taj Mahal ka Tender'.
Time: Nov 29, 7.00pm
