Delhi is the heart of our country, and inside the heart lies a breathing city basking in the glory of its amazing culture and heritage. But one thing that is the highlight of this city is the amazing Delhi Metro Rail Corporation. It is the best thing happened to the city along with other viable commutes like DTC. If you are a first-time commuter, it may overwhelm you with its speed, reach, great return on investment and wide network. But, it is also a great way to meet the diversity of people in Delhi all at once. No seriously.
If you want to know what kinds of people exist in Delhi, look no further because you can witness the whole variety in the Delhi Metro.
So let’s walk you through the kinds of people at the Delhi Metro:
“The Delhi Metro does not permit eating or smoking” (“Metro mein khana aur dhumrapan karna nished hai”), as you hear the announcement in the metro and turn your attention to the person sitting across you with a big bag of cheesy nacho chips, you will be stumped, yes! but slowly be enlightened that no body gives a flying fudge to the metro rules.
Not only that, but the announcements for the stations will be hindered by the intermittent crunching of the chips. No matter how disgusted you are, this kind wants to ‘Nacho’, bro!
2. The Chetan Bhagat/ Durjoy Dutta Fans
Ever wondered why Chetan Bhagat books are on the top of best selling list? Wait until you meet a person reading One Night At Call Center in 2017. You are sure to meet zealous Bhagat and Dujoy Dutta lovers!
3. AM I LOUD OR AM I LOUD?
Like I said, Delhi Metro is full of explorations, so don’t fret if you know a little too much information about your fellow passenger.
Trust me, it’s completely fine to know why your side-wali-aunty dislikes Mrs. xyz from the kitty party or the elderly uncle did not have a proper bowel movement. It’s fine.
4. PDA much?
Oh, the young love. This couple will enter holding hands, probably whisper sweet nothings in each other’s ears, smile shyly, maybe be a little over the threshold.
While they are in their dreamland, but it will be a little uncomfortable for you to witness how the elderly sitting beside you is gawking at the young couple and giving the “kya-hogya-hai-is-desh-ka” looks.
5. “Ladies log ka sahi hai, pura dabba milta hai aur idhar bhi aa jati hain”
This statement is not only restricted to the metro though! People travelling in DTC talk about it as much as any other. So here’s a deal:
If men were given a coach, would you not travel in the other compartments? It’s either you are too ignorant to realise the surging population or just too bored to use your mind.
6. To ‘seat’ or not?
If you are thanking your stars for getting the non-ladies-non-physically challenged-elderly-seat, don’t be too happy because there is a cluster of people who will make you guilty about sitting comfortably.
Apart from the constant staring, they will even go to lengths to ask you “Kaha utroge”. Ugh! Just take my seat, already!
7. The Angry Aam Junta
Sure, we get it. Daily rounds to work and home, travelling can be monotonous and sometimes you are grumpy and not in the mood. But there is one person will jump into a fight where it’s his/ hers or not!
8. The Candy Crush Saga
This is perhaps the most sorted kind. They are distant from the materialism of the society, don’t care about the seat, never indulged in a fight, never judged anyone all because of the wondrous game Candy Crush.
Hail the makers, because despite facing major trolls, these devoted fans never give up.
