Delhi, India's capital city, a city that has seen the rise and fall of several dynasties, and a place i`ve called `home' for nearly 20 years, exists in two time zones... One thats part of the 21st century, and the other that has remained uncanged for hundreds of years. The city is a mix of modern structures that exist alongside monuments that are well over a thousand years old.
The history, the culture and now all the rapid changes, reflect to the world where India stands today- at the crossroads- somewhere between the traditional and the modern... and that make Delhi a fascinating city to be a part of.

Work-in-progress

The recent commonwealth games (oct 2010) held in the city have left a mark on its landscape...
A lot of new infrastructure has come up, new stadiums for sports, more metro train lines, a new airport, etc.
Its still work in progress though. A lot of games related projects, plus new metro lines etc still remain to be built/finished... its an ever changing city.

History

Delhi has seen the rise and fall of several empires and is therefore littered with some amazing monuments, which sometimes we almost tend to take for granted and that date from the 1st century AD or earlier, to the days of the British raj. Its a typical scene to see modern buildings exist right beside ones that are over a thousand years old.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the layers of history, and the hills are never too far...
  • Cons:the summer heat, and scams to beware for first timers
  • In a nutshell:it could take time, but it grows on you
