Mardi Gras Delhi… You Must be Kidding!

Hindustan Times HT City Editors has completely lost it. Last week I busted their book reading duo and this week its time for another bashing.

Another series of Yeh Dilli Hai! “New Delhi is no New Orleans, but the walled City? Isn’t this Daryaganj scene reminding you of Mardi Gras?

Firstly how many people in Delhi know what “Mardi Gras” is? If the photographer had ever been to Mardi Gras festival he would have not compared this photograph to Mardi Grass party.

Mardi Gras is a big festival which happens every year in New Orleans where college kids go to drink, throw beads and there is a lot of free skin show by the chicks. Now… Does this happen in Daryaganj also? Hell No!

  1. Living in Mobile, the birthplace of Mardi Gras, I can’t but laugh at the total ‘blasphemous’ comparison.
