A dream job...An evening in Delhi

Spending evenings in any colony of Delhi is a different experience than any other cities in India. One can enjoy a feast of street foods along with serious bird watching with lots of love stories getting developed into one of the Monday bazaar or any other day bazaar that every colony of Delhi boasts of. A lot of love blossoms in the chhola bhatura redi at one of those bazaars. Frequenting the Monday bazaar has become the favorite pastimes for these five guys along with Tina, as Tina also spends most of her evenings with these five guys only to go back to YWCA in the late night accompanied by Kartik. Rishabh’s pocket is getting thinner with each passing day and he is eagerly waiting for tomorrow, the next salary day. To save money, Rishabh has curtailed his fags to only 5 a day a now from a pack a day, but still finding it difficult to maintain 5 a day now with his purse getting nearly empty. Rishabh has only a 50 rupees note left now in his pocket and nothing in his suitcase. Kartik was not feeling well that day, so he requests Rishabh to accompany Tina to her hostel that day as it was already 9 in the night. On other days, it would have been a great evening for Rishabh, but this evening with only 50 rupees in his purse, he really wanted to say no but he himself did not want Tina go alone in the night to C.P., so he just nods and takes Tina with him to the bus stand.
