Came to the new domestic airport terminal in Delhi for the first time. Nice to look at from outside, all glass and metal, vast and airy etc…but just 20 odd seats for the passengers? I mean if you expect enough passenger traffic to warrant eight check-in lines, at least plan for adequate seating arrangements for them too! I had to perch atop a ventilation duct of sorts with 2-3 other guys and even though it was all marble it still wasn’t good enough!
Well the waiting area after the security check was much better. A decent number of seats and good shopping area too.
In the plane now and never knew they build them so small! A pair of dwarves would have problems navigating the aisle together. The seats don’t even have adjustable backs..
Flew well enough though. Vizag is a nice city. Nestled in the Ghats, quite green though humid, being a port city. Saw waves breaking on the beach from the air for the first time. It all looked so quiet and peaceful. Nothing to beat mountains though. Have enough time but don’t want to see the city or the beaches. Reason 1-headache, reason 2-tired, reason 3-alone. Coming out of the airport was a nice experience…it’s surrounded by low hills, probably the best located airport I’ve seen in my India-limited experience. Benaras was by far the worst..

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
