Well, we are in the middle of apartment hunting (quite a chore in this heat! ). We keep swearing not to repeat the experience the next day, but haven't quite given up yet.
We heard that New Friends colony has a major mosquito problem. This is deterring us from pursuing some serious options. Anyone know of the true situation? Is it seasonal? Way worse than other parts of South Delhi? "Just stay indoors, and you'll be fine" won't work, unfortunately. Got to move around to ensure all wheels are in motion.
Thanks.

You have to go up a mountain to escape mosquitoes.

Hmmm, not going to lug any apartment all the way up there
Jokes aside there are no mosquitoes yet, in other parts of S. Delhi, but I need some clarification on the seasonal issue as well as seriousness of the situation in New Friends, given that the Yamuna river 'flows' nearby!

Koyaldilli,
Yes mosquitos are bad, however they are everywhere in Dehli. I was bit one time in a Hotel on Cannaught circus and contacted Dingy fever that was back in 1995. Just be protected mostly like not out at dusk and wear long sleeves and long pants. It would also help for mosquito repellant use. Good hunting.

Well, the thing is, this particular colony has actually been singled out as having serious mosquito issues - this was not pointed out for other South Delhi areas. I first heard of the problem from a realtor agent actually, and then much later from another source. So, still wondering......
