Delhi AirPort Express: Reality Check-In

4 07 2011

Indira Gandhi International Airport, DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) and Reliance Infrastructure have recently started a seemingly time saving and convenient service from the heart of New Delhi for fliers who wish to board a flight from IGI’s Terminal 3 (T3). The service is called the Airport Express or the Gold Line.

Since, we (me and my wife) had to fly to Pune from New Delhi last week and the flight was scheduled to take off from T3, we decided to give our routine ‘take-a-cab’ option a boot and try the Airport Express this time around. Although, it was not very convenient to first change two Metro lines to reach the New Delhi Metro station and then board the Airport Express, our earlier experience of the Airport Express in Hong Kong had been so pleasant that we could not help but think that it would be a similar experience here as well.

Fitting Tribute To The ‘King of Pop’

23 03 2010

MoonwalkerMichael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) or Michael Jackson as he was popularly known, was one of the greatest artists of all time. It’s a real tragedy we lost him when he was most upbeat about making a comeback after a long and painful hiatus infamous for the scandals concerning both his personal and professional life.

But, as we move on and look back at the legend which he was, it’s not hard to see why he had made such a mark in the entertainment industry. Michael was a complete entertainer.
