Are you guys from Delhi?
A | I am from Ludhiana, Punjab
S | I am from Jaipur, Rajasthan
What is the one difference between Ludhiana and Delhi?
A | It’s not as strict as Delhi, and religion does not play as much of a part as it does in Ludhiana.
Besides the heat, what is similar between Delhi and Jaipur?
S | Nothing. There is nothing similar at all. It’s coming up and stuff but it’s so much quieter. There is place to walk on the pavement. And in Delhi, oh yeah…
How long have you been together?
Where will we find you in Delhi?
A | North Campus
S | Generally, at a friend’s place or like kamla nagar.

Hauz Khas Village.

What is the best thing you like about the city?
A | Maybe the diversity of people.

Have you been to any of them?
S | I have been to Humanyun’s tomb and Hauz Khas.
If you both had to come to consensus and change one thing about Delhi what would it be?
A | Temperature.
S | Come on, no. People. There are too many people. You need more space.
A | But that’s the problem with the country.

Would you vote for Ajay if he stood for elections?
S | No
Would you vote for her?
