Delhi, the capital of India, is a beautiful paradise but have you ever thought what makes Delhi so? What is so good about living in Delhi? What makes a mass crowd to get attracted towards Delhi?

Delhi, a giant city containing an overwhelming amount of culture, history, life, food, temples, and everything else that one could possibly imagine.

Delhi is not only a hub of only a kind of people. A high amount of people with different castes, culture, and religion stays here. It is basically a city with Kashmiris, Bengali, Guajarati, all residing here. It represents a wide cultural heritage. Festivals are celebrated in Delhi with great enthusiasm. Starting from Diwali to Id, Buddha Jayanti to Janmashtmi and Guru Nanak’s birthday to Durga Puja, represents multiculturalism. All festivals are celebrated with great vigour.

Delhi’s shrine – the golgappas, full of the spicy and tamarind water, represents a perfect example of spiciness and sweetness, always waters the mouth (even some would have gain the feeling of having it now). Delhi has a wide range of food availability starting from street food to continental food at five star hotels. Areas like Defence Colony, Greater Kailash have the best restos and cafes in the city.

Delhi is an amazing tourist place and a hub for shopping. The shopping places, here, are happening. Be it, Indian crafts at Delhi government’s emporiums or brand new malls, markets are flooded with goods. Chandni Chowk- a large household market selling merely everything from bangles to spices, bags to jewels. Bargaining at Jan path or Sarojni Nagar, for college goers to exclusive designer stores at Khan Market, is very common.  We can find malls, showrooms, road side markets in almost every adjacent locality of Delhi. Markets like Central Market, Palika bazar are great attractions. Delhi even offers an attractive marketing place for the MNC’S to come and see enhance the market opportunities.

Another reason is the Delhi metro. Cheap, comfortable, clean and fast mode of transportation. This is Delhi’s lifeline. It has become the safest mode of traveling for women unlike the world upstairs. People do not have to suffer from traffic jams in hot summers. They can easily communicate from one place to another in very less time, but at the same time frauds in this infrastructural projects provide us an image of the struggling country’s future.

Endless incredible and ancient monuments exists here, to which the tourists are forced to come here.  The government is sitting on a tourism gold mine. Akahardham temple, Qutab Minar, Red Fort are a few examples. It is amazing place for tourists to hang out and spend their free time with family and friends.  Hundreds of relics exist around the city, resulting in an endless novelty.

Delhi is a very socially active capital.  All the entrapments of state, Parliament House, Rashtrapati Bhavan, North Block, South Block are in the city. Be it Anna Hazarre’s anti-corruption protest, Jessica Lal murder candle march, 16 December gangrape outrage, all mass protests happen here. Delhiities are ready to express their anguish over injustice democratically. They completely realise the importance of their rights and can stand for people who are victims of injustice. 

Delhi, an educational hub, is also an attraction for many outstation students. Delhi University, IIT, AIIMS, Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi Technological University, GGSIPU and all other premier institutions are in Delhi. With almost 6000 schools in the city, it makes the best place to live in for good education.  Students seek opportunities to get into these educational institutions. Delhi University, IIT are the institutions which are worldwide recognized.

Delhi, truly, is a microcosm of India!
