The middle land

Mayur Vihar is a residential area in East Delhi, situated across the river Yamuna.It is one of the more posh localities here, made up largely of LIG, MIG and HIG DDA flats. It’s relatively a recent addition of Delhi, developed in three phases.

    My parents moved to Mayur Vihar II from Kerala in 1990, and I've lived here since birth, been some 20 odd years now. I really like everything about the place, except there are some parking issues. There are various places to eat out nearby, but nothing's really that good. Commuting, however, is convenient with plenty of e-rickshaws, autos and RTVs. If I had to give a caption for the area, it'd be that it's a place where all people live peacefully.

    I work in an IT Company and have been living here for the past 24 years. I enjoy travelling, playing and reading as my leisure activities. I like the open and spacious surrounding here, parks in every neighbourhood, dedicated market space in every neighbourhood and lot of greenery. Sanjay Lake is nearby which is being developed as tourist destination adventurous activities. Metro station is coming up soon. Laxmi Nagar market which is also one of the education hub of Delhi is nearby. Anand Vihar bus terminal is only 5 kms from here. Many eat-outs have come up recently - the best one is Scorpio cafe, then there is CTZ Cafe, WOW, Sweets and Spices, Urban Degchi, Slice of Italy, Wah Ji Wah, Madras Cafe and many more. There are temples, community centre, public library, parks, local markets, etc. For commuting, bus service is not so good but autos and rickshaws are always available. It's a good, spacious and quiet place to live. I don't think many of such places are left in Delhi.

    "20 years is less for any development, madam" I am a resident in the mixed housing complex, have lived here from 1993 to 2004 and 2007 to present with family. It's comparatively quiet, within the residential complex compared to the outside areas. The negatives - 1. The crowd lives in 1950s- a girl and guy (between the age of 15 and 35) cannot walk safely without being branded a whore and a playboy respectively. 2. Have to face terrible gender issues while travelling anywhere and staring at your chest as though your eyes were carved in there is just the starting. 3. We have a sewage plant right next to our apartment and I have to spend rainy days fantasizing about mountains than being able to smell the Earth. Also, we're very committed to hygiene since we make sure there is at least one huge trash area every km being feasted upon by mosquitoes. The nearest hangout (where you can sit comfortably and talk without there being too much background noise) is Mayur Vihar Phase 1 or Noida Sector-15. We have many means of getting there : bus, shared auto. The nearest metro is 4km away. However, the experience of travelling completely drains one of the want to take any shared vehicle.

    My parents moved into this house an year before I was born. So, I have been here all my life, i.e., 22 years now. I'm a student at Northern India Engineering College, IP University. Mayur Vihar II has lots of open spaces, parks and greenery. It is smaller than both of the other two phases of Mayur Vihar, and hence is a lot better maintained. Street food here is great. All amenities are readily available but you have to wage to find a parking spot. To eat out, there are lots of places, a couple of dine in restaurants, ""King's"" and ""Sweets and Spices"". For take away, you have a lot of other options, Wah ji Wah, Slice of Italy, Scorpio Cafe, Fresh Refresh etc. The Krishna Plaza in Pocket B is a food haven. Autos are available easily here. The DTC bus frequency is low and there is no Metro here as of the moment, however construction has begun for a new metro station near Pocket C. It should be operational by the end of 2016. Also, Mayur Vihar Phase-1 Metro and the Laxmi Nagar metro stations are only a few minutes away, by car. Located right next to the NH-24, it's well connected to Noida, Ghaziabad, Connaught Place and South Delhi.

    I am pursuing Spanish Hons. from Delhi University. I've been living here since 20 years. I love dancing and singing. There are many awesome restaurants and an awesome market where you can find everything. Though there is no metro station nearby. It's a mini Kerala because there are 80% of south Indians living here.

In & Around

There are a lot of eateries spread over Mayur Vihar. South Indian outlets are quite common given the population demographics. Roadside Vada stalls, sweet shops with exciting variations, family restaurants and little cafés are laid out here.

Mayur Vihar is a place very close to me because a very dear friend of mine lives there. Although parking is a big problem.
