The beautiful Delhi instant.

One evening The Delhi Walla was on the pedestrian bridge built across the Ghazipur Road in east Delhi.
It was twilight, the hour of commuters. Below, the road swarmed with the green and red buses of Delhi Transport Corporation. Above, puffs of grey-white cloud stood still in the pale-blue sky.
The concrete structure for the pedestrians faces a metro rail bridge. Both connect the bus terminus and the metro station of Anand Vihar to the Ghaziabad district of Uttar Pradesh.
Suddenly, a steel-grey metro train rushed in from the direction of Dwarka in west Delhi. The coach windows presented the illusion of an aquarium against whose glass wall were pressed the faces of the working people.
Within seconds the train was gone. The pale-blue of the sky stayed back. It was a beautiful moment.
