Tea is catching up as the go-to drink for many in Delhi what with its health benefits and reasonable prices,. Consequently tea cafes in Delhi are seeing a steadily increasing flow of patrons. T’Pot Café in Malviya Nagar is a tea joint that is about two years old. They have an impressive range of tea starting from our very own masala chai to the exotic white tea – oolong tea et al. They also serve a variety of tea snacks, (vegetarian well as non-vegetarian) meal items and coffee. Apart from the brew, one may buy tea leaves from their outlet or online store.
The Inner Eye is a documentary by Satyajit Ray on the artist Benode Behari Mukherjee. Benode Bihari was partially blind since birth. He lost his vision completely in mid life. This did not stop him from pursing art – sketches – paintings – murals – sculptures. In a span of 20 minutes, Ray has explored the “inner eye” of the artist that kept him going.
Hinglish in Pacific Mall, near Subhash Nagar Metro Station is a restaurant that serves a combo of Indian and continental cuisine. We were great fans of this place but our last visit has disappointed us big time. Drinks – food – service – ambiance – attitude – every element was a let down. Extremely saddening.
Delhi Drummers recently had a jamming session at the picturesque Zorba the Buddha, Mehrauli Gurgaon Road. This was an open event where anybody was free to get his musical instrument of choice and play along. The viewers swayed to the music and some of them formed circles around the drummers and danced with gusto. Overall, a very pleasant fuss free and “cool” do on a very warm summer evening.
