Delhi ghazal

Maggi, bunta, chips, chai shops fill the nooks of Delhi
Muffins, sutta and friends-- all in my book of Delhi

Rock music and vodka lovers to art and lit lovers
India Gate to alleyways, myriad looks of Delhi

Sweltering heat brews here as does freezing cold
Food, theatre, gossip, tales, crimes cook up in Delhi

Monsoon breezes blow here, winds of change ripple
Earthquakes, bombs, political storms recently shook Delhi

Campus college hostel life is a life unto itself
It may have its negatives, but Shruti is hooked to Delhi.

( tried to keep the rhyme, refrain and metre as correct as I was able to!!)
