The Highs & Lows Of Delhi
New Delhi is
the capital city of India with a beautiful conglomeration of people
from different religions, cultures and stratas of society. Immensely
popular for its shopping, food, sight seeing opportunities and social
activities, New Delhi is truly the hub of India.
There was a
time when Delhi was known more for its myriad monuments
that stand tall as a symbol and reminder of India's rich history.
However, over the years, Delhi has acquired the reputation
of being an extremely notorious city known more for its
killer blue line buses, Meter-Not-Working Autos rickshaws
and ogling men.
If you venture
out to explore Delhi, you will be surprised to see stark contrasts
between the lifestyles of the rich vs. poor, educated and uneducated.
Delhi is home to a plethora of 5 star hotels as well as JJ colonies,
people living in palatial bungalows and those sustaining themselves
on the roads, bearing the brunt of harsh and ever changing weather.
Delhi sore during the summers with massive humidity and drop
considerably during winters making the weather highly oppressive
and extreme for most part of the year.
One of the best things
that could ever happen to New Delhi is the Delhi Metro that has
revolutionized the way the common man travels. After all, who
wouldn't want to travel in a cool, air conditioned train - also
a perfect way to avoid running after and traveling in those killer
buses of Delhi.
It is said that
there is always a strong connection between people and their
birth place. This unexplainable and highly emotional bond can create
a blind eye, preventing a person from seeing and acknowledging certain
less-likeable aspects of their favourite city.

to break this myth and check if I was up to the challenge of looking
at Delhi from an unbiased perspective.
