The city is always in a state of flux. And we hate to admit it, but mostly, it’s going from negative to more negative. From potholes to PM’s, abandoned Metro construction sites to abandoned political offices, it seems a lot of our time is spent waiting for action, rather than responding to it. As people with jobs that are inextricably tied in with the city, we’re acutely aware that calls to action mostly fail. Blame it on our collective ability to forget. Attempting to bring to the forefront the madness of the city {whose method we’re still trying to decipher}, and its ups and downs, we approached Delhi Hectic; a twosome expressing their frustration, grief, and sometimes elation with the city.

Allow us to introduce you to Delhi Hectic. Started by Arjun Jassal and Aazar Anis over a year ago, they’ve been chronicling their Delhi-ness via Instagram, and have slowly transformed into ‘Delhi Hectic’; a text on images book/novel/graphic novel. Started as a way of channelling their frustration with the Capital {yes we know they aren’t the only ones, since you’ve probably driven on the highway in the rain}, they originally envisioned a graphic novel, an idea that soon saw its own demise, as they realized none of them could draw.

When LBB asked them to capture, via their medium, the demise of promises {if not Delhi}, they agreed, and out came a fine chapter on Delhi’s state of flux, and how they, as Dilliwaalas see it. LBB and Delhi Hectic present a brand new chapter. We wish we could say the same for the city.

Since 2013 though, things have changed for them; Aazar has moved onto a fun career in advertising and Arjun has been spending more time on his little startup. Check out more of their work here.
