Sudheesh Nair's Delhi & NCR photos

Had been to Delhi & NCR from Bangalore for a short trip on 29th & 30th January 2009. 29th was a foggy day in Delhi as well as Bangalore. It was reported that the visibility at Delhi was zero, and that of Bangalore was about 200m. Later came to know that 200 flights were delayed that day and there was no landing at Delhi IGI from 7.30 AM to 9.30 AM. My flight JetLite S2 0232 was scheduled to take off at 7 AM, and reach Delhi at 9.40 AM, but took off from BLR only by around 9 AM and landed in Delhi by 11.30 AM.

Had several meetings lined up at Gurgaon, Nehru Place, Okhla, NOIDA etc. Went to Central Delhi, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Mehrauli, passed by Kutb Minar etc.

Spend most time in the cab, travelling about 305 kms. Travelled through Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway as well as DND Flyway.

Delhi and suburbs appeared in a dry light brown shade to me from the sky. Moreover the sky was foggy so no aerial pics. I missed the Delhi Gurgaon Expressway flyover shot in a whisker.

Now coming to some pics



Landed,

Thanks Harsh and Sun

I didn't get time to shoot the terminal pic from outside. I had already lost the first meeting scheduled at 11 AM as well as the second at 12.30 PM. So rushed to the car and left for Gurgaon.

Anyway some pics from my return trip next day. Please excuse the poor quality





Sorry for the blurr

Out of Airport







I had missed to shoot this flyover of Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway (NH 8) from the aircraft. We had seen similar shots earlier in SSC.

No surprise if anybody is tempted to floor the pedal



We have reached Gudu gava (Gurgaon). Ambience Mall (is it same as Amby Mall??)



The iconic 'Gateway Tower', DLF Cyber city, Gurgaon.





A long shot of Gateway tower, as seen from the 15th floor a building in Cyber City.

The Expressway is seen on the left.

RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland?)

You can see some platform/equipment on the left top part of the building, lowered by a crane. Facade cleaning was going on.

Cool images, Sudheesh. Driving on the NCR roads must have been an uplifting experience

True, very much. No doubt that Delhi/NCR has the best roads in India by far. Enjoyed the signal less 'flying' through the roads, esp Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway. I travelled 305 kms through the city roads, criss crossing most prominent parts. I didn't see any pothole or 'hump'(which is characteristic of most roads & highways of Bangalore/Karnataka). And special kudos to those areas where Metro work is going on.
