“Dog! I Shall Drink Your Blood!” – Hauz Khas Kitsch!

No, I haven’t turned into a canine hunting vampire overnight!

The title is the literal translation of a quintessential Bollywood quote from a 1973 Hindi flick, that has become synonymous with its aging, macho, once dashing, still endearing star. ‘Dog’ in this instance refers to the vile villain, who is about to have the %#&* beaten out of him, in true Bollywood ‘dishum dishum’ style 🙂

You have to admit this is a brilliant illustration.

T shirt in Hauz Khas

No we didn’t buy that T shirt.

Here is more kitsch from Hauz Khas, a chic bohemian ‘village’ in South Delhi, that is sadly, fast degenerating into an overcrowded suburb. Shall reserve photos of the beautiful archaeological complex and the reservoir that it derives its name from, for another day.

Wishing you all much joy, for Christmas and the coming year!

      1. I have a long list, erh! Mr Cretino who took 8 months to organise my driving licence, the woman at Poste Italia who loses my mail 😉

        Merry Christmas and nice to meet you too

  1. Looks like fun Madhu, somewhere unique, shame about the encroaching suburbs! Happy Christmas to you too … wishing you peace and joy 🙂

  2. Yes, brilliant indeed.
    Thanks for the Christmas greetings and all the best to you in the new year. I enjoy following your blog, Madhu, seeing your vibrant photographs and reading your adventures from around the world. (Should have bought the shirt;-))

    1. You might be surprised by how much of that is in the Oxford English dictionary 😀 Thank you for stopping by Eric. Have been missing my FG fix. Shall be over in a little while.

  3. 🙂 I would have taken a risk and let R wear that shirt 😀 (my hubby’s name also starts with R :D) Thank you very much, Madhu. Wishing you peace and joy – we have already discussed the yellow colour and it is the colour of Thursday according to Hindu – right?

    1. I didn’t want him getting beaten up by someone who took offence Paula! 😀 Oh yes, the colour was serendipitous! Thanks Paula. Loved your ice maiden too.

  4. Aah..those vintage brocade is enough to send me to Delhi one more time. Must take note of this bohemian village the next time we make a trip to Delhi. And many warm greetings to you Madhu from Finland! Sharon

    1. Thank you Sharon. That shop looked like it held some real treasures. There were several inexpensive jewelery shops that looked nice too. You should return 🙂

Let me know what you think
