Lodi Gardens

The 90-acre Lodi Gardens is one of Delhi’s most popular parks. Wide, open spaces, and stunning monuments, make it a great picnic spot to carry some bubbly and pop the question.

Pros:

Gorgeous setting, perfect for a tender loving moment.

If rejected, just get on a jogging track, and run away.

Cons:

Gorgeous setting, perfect for a tender loving moment; so you might be the 164th person to propose in the Gardens that day.

They are currently replanting and fertilising much of the gardens, so your bending knee might get covered in poop {but it was worth it, right? RIGHT?!}.

The Shiv Sena may catch you.

At any Outdoor Restaurant

Pros:

If it’s a yes, the wine never tasted as good.

If it’s a no, at least you have delicious food!

Cons:

If it’s a no, you’re stuck with the bill.

If it’s a yes, you’re stuck with {larger} bill.

The Shiv Sena may catch you.

The decay of the ruins may be symptomatic of the decay in your relationship.

Near India Gate

india-gate-delhiWhen you think Delhi, you probably think India Gate. The famous war memorial has long been a place for individuals, families and couples to come in the evenings, grab an ice cream and just chill.

Pros:

If you get rejected you can shout “BOMB”, and run, and no one will know what just happened to you.

Proposing in a boat on the water will make sure neither of you can escape.

If your proposal is accepted, you can share a cheap cotton candy or ice cream together to commemorate the moment.

Cons:

If you get rejected your failure could be immortalised in the background of innumerable tourists’ photos.

Proposing in a boat on the water will make sure neither of you can escape.

If you arrive on a High Alert day and all your actions, and proposal, will be scrutinised by fresh faced, gun-wielding jawans.

The Shiv Sena may catch you.

She literally CAN’T say yes.

The Shiv Sena may catch you.

Pros:

If you’re rejected, you can get off at the next stop.

Cons:

She can get off at the next stop.

Your failure will sting worse than the armpits in your face.
