Not everyone who comes and goes in your life can give you the company of what Jai and Veeru portrayed in Sholay.  Although the Lakhnavis will leave your heart soft for sure.

Here are 7 reasons why you must have a “LAKHNAVI” friend:-

They’re hardly angry!

But that doesn’t mean you can take them for granted. Having a LAKHNAVI homie rewards you with calm temper and wise jokes which are hardly seen in that quantity anywhere else. Time to call’em boys home for a party eh!

A friend in need & you know it!

Lucknow-Wordhazard

“Man I need help can you…..” before you get a chance to ask the whole question you’ll be bombarded by a series of CIA type questions “how much do you want?”, “are you hurt?” “should I all my boys man?” and the list goes on until you pick one entry from the list. Doctor doctor everywhere – Once they’ll hear an “ouch” from your mouth “man apply this”, “man apply that it’ll help”, you’ll see a plethora of doctors roaming right beside you at all times.

More of ahem!

One of the most salient features of a LAKHNAVI friend is his/her suggestion about the boy/girl you’re having a crush upon. Well, not everyone is just as good as a homie saying “man she’s good for ya”.

Birthday pain!

birthday-bumps-wordhazard
While you’ll be busy planning your day on buying gifts and spending time with your…….well, your LAKHNAVI friend will be polishing off the edges of his/her slippers just to gift you the most painful present. And I guess you know where it’ll hurt!

Time to call your parents

lucknow-friend-wordhazard
Only hostellers know the pain of not enjoying night outs but don’t worry, your friend will become the father over your warden’s call back at home. This brought tears………….literally!

MATTER management

lucknow-gang-war-wordhazard
Finally, the best part of having a LAKHNAVI friend is the capability of fending off the unwanted people off your turf. Fret not, this ain’t a gang war but who knows. Danger doesn’t give you a warning call. Just a ring to your wingman can call an army of the people you’ve never met, just to save you. DEUS EX STUFF!

haunted-in-delhi

For those who love adventure and thrill, there are always traces of supernatural happenings in this city. Perhaps not the most haunted place, but amidst the hustle – bustle, something beyond the human sight hovers around the city. Most people are sceptical or even non-believers of paranormal existence, but their presence can never be denied. Here is a list of 5 probable haunted areas of Delhi:

Delhi Cantonment Area

delhi-haunted-1
This is one of the most haunted places in Delhi. A lady in white was a resident here, who died in a car accident. Many people have reported cases of sighting a lady who tries to stop the visitors. It is advisable not to stop, but if you do, it is apparently observed that she starts following you. As soon as you stop, she becomes invisible. The place has an
eerie feeling and such stories add-on to the creeps.

The Jamali Kamali Tomb

delhi-haunted-2
This is the tomb for two of the most renowned Sufi saints in the history who were buried in the year 1535. It’s situated inside Mehrauli Archaeological Park. People have filed reports about weird noises they hear outside the tomb. Some even heard their names being called out. The sounds come from the graves as observed by the visitors.
House Number W-3 GK-II Greater Kailash is the posh area of South Delhi, but this place has it’s own story. An
elderly couple were murdered in the house and their spirits haunt this area. People have complained about hearing scary shriek and weird laughter. The locals have abandoned this place, you can hear murmurs, erratic sounds and heavy air around the desolated house.

Khooni Nadi

Khooni-Nadi-haunted
As the name suggests, Bloody River, justifies the incidents taken place around it. People get sucked in like Bermuda Triangle. Reports state that those who dive in never come out alive. It is situated in Rohini. Perhaps a dip might help getting off with the speculation?

Lothian Cemetery

delhi-haunted-3
Just few kilometres away from Kashmiri Gate, this place makes to the list of haunted places in Delhi. There is a sighting of a British soldier who roams around the area. During a full moon night he looks out for his unrequited love. The story says that he committed suicide as he was unable to accept his spurned love relationship.

Some may believe it, some may not, but it is impossible to ignore their presence in the world. Souls are energies we give out after our mortal body dies. Hence, they mark the immortal presence of us in another sphere of the world.
