Now we can go to the markets on Sunday...

...Monday,Tuesday and all the other days ending with Y.

I had written somewhen about how the metro has revived CP. A lot of people now drop in to shop and walk around the area - something that was unimaginable five years ago.

Now with the opening of the Gurgaon and Badarpur lines many other markets are within reach - Khan market, Lajpat Nagar and Dilli Haat. The latter has already seen a huge increase in footfalls within a month of the metro line being launched.

One of the problems in markets was parking space and people would avoid going to CP for this reason. Many prefer a tradition market like Karol Bagh or Lajpat Nagar but were often dissuaded by the traffic on the roads. But with the metro this is no longer an issue. Also since the trains run regulary and on time (unlike buses) one can choose when to go and shop.

Add the traffic restrictions around the Commonwealth Games this a good time to hop onto the metro. No more blue lanes to avoid and the shock of watching traffic cops actually do their job :)
