(Too early to complain about your blistered feet, O Mir. Delhi is yet far away, hold a while.)
Delhi – the city of cities, the city of djinns, the city of lost souls and found glories – conceals within itself many an untold stories. One of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, Delhi has served as the capital of several empires. It is a city of long, intriguing histories; deep, rich culture; and a vibrant, pulsating present. Today, the city contains within it the remnants of several capital cities. The past, the present, and the future appear to live simultaneously in its streets and boulevards.
From the narrow by-lanes of Chandni Chowk to the wide, tree lined avenues of Lutyen’s Delhi; from the swanky malls of South Delhi to the bustling street markets all over the city, and from magnificent forts and palaces to divine, spiritual places of worship, the city has something for everyone. The political capital of India, Delhi is also the heart of the country’s administration.
