Delhi tales and other things

So I'm back from Delhi, having met the incredible Mridu Khullar, who introduced me to this incredible hole-in-the-wall Cafe called Mrs Kaurs in Khan Market. It was a real pleasure finally meeting someone who I've known only online- Mridu doesn't just know what she's talking about, but is an incredibly warm, down-to-earth and hardworking person.

Dealing with a breakup is never easy and talking about it is even harder. By my own standards, I am dealing with it quite well, except for the occasional niggling what-ifs and what-could-have-been. Over the couple of years, I've always felt scared about revealing too much detail on my blog and/ or whining or both, but I think that this time around, I've dealt with everything as maturely as I could have managed.

I'm supposed to write a travelogue about Delhi and my editor wants it to be authentic. Should I also write about my thoughts and how I feel or will it then seem like a cheap attention seeking stunt? What do you think?

My personal preference in writing... is that I LOVE when people tie in emotional state to the places they are in. But it depends what kind of publication you're writing for... ya know? I'd say go for it! If it's not right for this, you'll get it in somewhere else, and it'll be more meaningful or a memory to set on the page :)
