Want to try cuisines from 19 states? Head to Aajeevika India Food Court at India Gate Lawns, Delhi
The winters are almost here and what better way to greet them than with some heart and soul warming food? Nothing picks you up like a warm bowl of Thukpa during the cold season and that is exactly why we love it so much. In fact, during the winters, food becomes a sort of a companion and if you want to try the best of the cuisine that some Indian states have to offer, then this thirteen day food festival is for you.
Head on down to the Aajeevika India Food Court Festival and indulge in some colloquial dishes that encapsulate the spirit and the culture of these 19 Indian states.
Delhiites are known to love their food, especially North Indian food. Since Delhi is a hotpot where different cultures meet and blend together, it isn't too hard to find pretty much any cuisine you want. But here, at the Aajeevika India Food Court, you can find it all in one setting.
East or West, they're all the best!
Go ahead and try the Appam and Stew from Kerala, or the Bisibelebath that will make its way into your palette all the way from Mysore. Explore a bit more with your taste buds as the aromas of the dishes from Kolkata and the likes draw you to them. In fact, you can also come across cuisines from Assam, Mizoram and a few others. Their spicy, tangy flavours are perfect for welcoming the winters.
For those of you who are into more mainstream things, the mega food fest will also be home to dishes that are closer to home. You can have the melt in your mouth Galawati Kebabs from Lucknow, the flavour rich Dum Biryani from Hyderabad, Bhutte ki Kees from central India and then some Litti Chokha from Bihar.
A dream come true
We're glad that the food fest is going to be around for almost two weeks, because there is no way that you can try everything in just one visit. Trying out food from 19 Indian states is pretty much the dream come true for every foodie!
If you're a foodie, or just someone who likes the occasional fancy meal, then this is one mega event that is just for you. So what are you waiting for? Head over here and try out food from a variety of Indian states!

Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.
Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.
What's the update?
In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.
Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.
To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.
This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
