Meet ‘The Shy Guy’ Faruq

Whenever I feel low or stressed, I rush to Old Delhi for a good meal. The narrow lanes of the walled city somehow always manage to give me a reason to spread smile on my lips. After a scrumptious meal at of many restaurants at Jama Masjid, I started walking to in deep, dark and narrow lanes not knowing where to go and what am I looking for, I met a bunch of friendly kids. Faruq was one of them, but may be the most shy amongst all of them. He was constantly hiding behind this wall in the staircase of his house. His smile just cheered my mood up, of-course the Nihari for breakfast was the bigger n better stress buster ;-).

Wonder why people are surprised when I they get to know Nihari at Jama Masjid is one of my favorite breakfast!
