This city is believed to be the site of Indraprastha, the legendary capital of The Pandavas from the epic, ‘The Mahabharata’ and has been a capital for the Lodhi Empire, the Mughals and the British. After independence, Delhi was made the capital of Independent India. One can feel the reminiscence of the previous dynasties that once ruled this majestic city.

Delhi as a capital is home to all political activities. It is in Delhi that political fortunes are made or marred. Delhi has always been a hub of activity, art, culture, fashion and will continue to do so.

Delhi is home to almost 20 million influxed with migrants from all over the country hoping to realize their dreams and opportunities. There’s no denial that this city is overcrowded and faces severe problems but, I’m proud to say that I have lived my entire life in the world’s greatest city. I used to think I knew all about Delhi by visiting all the tourist places. I’m glad to find new streets filled with graffiti all around and attending rare Urdu plays in an abandoned am phi-theatre in Delhi. A place having an essence of all diversities and opportunities and is hardly something one can find in any other city.
