Are you having an affair with pizza?
Will life be meaningless without Biryani?
Can you survive without oxygen but not butter chicken?
Is Ice-cream the love of your life?

While thinking about all the food items above, were you constantly wondering that if you don’t include paneer in the list, it would be like cheating on paneer (and yourself)?

If the answer to any of the questions above (or all of the questions above) is a yes then welcome to the club! You can officially declare yourself as a big-time “bhukkhad”, someone who lives to eat, rather than (the more conventional way albeit boring way) which involves eating to live.

All this food in the world and such a short life – unfair, isn’t it? Well, don’t worry, this winter season we have come up with an alternative for you. Ever heard of food festivals or carnivals? Yes, yes, the same place where hundreds of vendors (all of different brands) come together under one roof to offer you multiple cuisines involving hundred different types of food alternatives. The calendar of the next two months is packed with multiple food festivals happening all over Delhi. So, #plankyahai ?
