Hey! I'm an engineering student with a love for all things literary, also with an added interest in music and dance. Also, I love writing, and people who're funny!


Geeks are seldom celebrated. But this was not the case at the fifth Delhi Comic Con, held over the weekend at NSIC, Okhla. Spiderman was there, so was Batman, and Captain America……the list goes on. I think I even saw little Tyrion somewhere.

The sprawling fairground was the one place where Joker wasn’t so scary, in fact, thousands of fans clicked numerous selfies with him! Another crowd favorite was Darth Vader. But that’s not all, even Hodor(played by Irish actor and DJ, Kristian Nairn) showed up in all his magnificent, a hundred pound glory! Even Indian comic characters were present with their sparkly jewels, and vibrant costumes. And the super-fans(ones with 3-day passes) looked absolutely heroic in their superfan capes!

Of course it was Frodo’s One Ring) and so much more! This edition of Comic-Con Delhi offered something to all people who attended the event – geeks or not geeks! They even had a stall offering to send your favorite geek postcards to anybody, anywhere in the country! And then there were, of course, our golden treasures, and my heart’s desires, filled with color on glossy pages, COMICS! Real live entertainment also found a place in the already dynamic environment. The arcade game, “Star Wars: Battle Pods” was a huge crowd puller as numerous individuals lined up for a shot.

All that’s well and good but coming to the most important stuff now – FOOD, this time there was a great variety of all kinds of eatables ready to be delivered in order to satiate our comic lovers’ hunger. Cup o’ Noodles, pizza, samosa, you name it and it was there, in a finger-licking capacity that left you desperate and wanting more! Keventers shakes had a twenty-minute long queue that was totally worth it because their shakes(Chocolate, Butterscotch, Strawberry or Pineapple) were JUST. SO. Slurpi-licious!

Even though the majority of the audience was young, parents who came along with their kids also seemed to enjoy the event to it’s fullest. A fun and frolic event, Comic Con Delhi is known to observe a rise in the number of attendees each year. Never mind if you missed it this year, be sure to let your geekiness out at the next Comic Con Delhi, because it’s totally worth it!
