The click-happy ­generation that we are, indulging in the occasional selfie has become a vice of sorts. So, in case you are tired of clicking pictures in loos and in front of ­mirrors, tired of duckfaces and shelfies, go take a walk around the city (Remember to carry an umbrella and dab ample ­sunscreen).

Connaught Place
With that humongous Indian flag in the background, ­patriotism is sure to generate an instant load of ‘Likes’.

Dilli Haat
With the momos and fruit beer, and the bees, clicking selfies with all that pretty ­silver on display is ­better than spending a bomb.

Hauz Khas Village
In front of the pond, or the graffiti-fied walls, or even the ostentatious pubbing ­parlours. Eating overpriced Maggi was never this fun!

Girls just wana have fun!

Outside malls

Because you definitely need to document the act of having walked kilometres in an ­air-conditioned environment. Not to forget to show off all the awesome bargains that you got at these flashy south Delhi malls. The bigger the brand hoarding in the ­background, the better the social-media validation.


And then Instagram them using some old foregone ­filter. Aim for one on top of Jantar Mantar, where time stands still. Or one with Humayun’s Tomb in the ­background.

Gardens and park

Maybe with a couple making out in the background? You will find lots of those at Deer Park or Lodhi Gardens.


Follows the principle of ‘more, the merrier’. The more heads you can fit inside the frame, the better the shot will be.


That too the uncrossable ­variety. How about traffic lights? (Just in case you don’t make it to the other side of Shantipath or Nelson Mandela Marg.)

Airports and stations

People crying at the ­departure of a loved one or rejoicing at the arrival of another — nothing beats documenting running noses and weepy expressions.
