                                                               NEW DELHI


New Delhi visit was carried out by me and one of my close friend Mr Anil Kumar in the midist of the cold December in 2016. Even though a period of one year has been elapsed I am writing this short diary even after going to the rear point of my memory.

It was only a five day visit, starting in the  early morning of a cold December from Thiruvanantha puram  air port by Indigo airlines en-routed to Bangalore and then connection flight to New Delhi. We reached New Delhi air port by 2 in the afternoon almost 6 degree was the temperature there at that time and that too decreased to 4 and then to 2 degrees by the time of our return journey , within five days. From the airport we hired a taxi and went to Panickers tourist home in Karol Bhag,the best place for a Malyalee to stay  for two three days with fantastic Kerala food and neat hosting by the panickers team providing  with good blankets, room heaters and  all in   reasonable rent .

The next day morning we went for sight seeing in Panickers bus. Traveling was heavy for two day's scheduled with specific time span at each point. All most all places in new Delhi and  Agra were covered by us in two and half days.
