Twenty-two million people, a healthy population of wandering dogs, bullocks and goats, hundreds of people who want your money, chaos, dirt, garbage. What can I say? It's India. For a first trip, Delhi is overwhelming. First-time visitors to India might consider going to Goa or Kerala first, to a village with an Ayurvedic spa before tackling the monolithic capitol of India. However, once you "get" a little of the culture, you might really enjoy it. New Yorkers will take the noise and jam of people in stride...others: prepare yourself (I'm not sure that's even possible).

I love Delhi. It's a dusty, polluted, trash-filled and abject place. It's a nightmare tangle of traffic and poverty, complaining rickshaw-wallahs and sketchy Kashmiris selling ersatz hashish. The air is so bad that they say living here takes ten years off your life, and you'll be damned if it doesn't seem it by the end of your 3rd day here. But you know what? - Delhi's got CHARACTER. And character, as a wise man once said, goes an awful long way. As you wander through the twisting bazaars of old Delhi, eat rich Mughali lamb curries and chana masala with piping hot naan, tour stunning medieval tombs and forts lying in the middle of the city's sprawling modern chaos, and generally soak up the conflicting, incomparable ambiance of this most Indian metropolis, you'll find it's awfully hard not to leave impressed.

Delhi is my city and I love my city. If Delhi could be described in one phrase it would be fittinly described in the words of Saint Nizamuddin Auliya: Hunuz Dilli dur ast (Delhi is still far away). Delhi is an ever evolving and expanding city.
Conceived as a city immured in by the Yamuna in the east, verdant cover of Ridge in the west, Lodi Garden in the south and Connaught Place in the north, New Delhi has grown many times over in every direction since its inception, even beyond the wildest dream of the town planners who drew up the original blueprint of the modern Indian capital.
Delhi has grown into India's largest metropolis over the course of 100 years since its foundation was led by Lutyen and Baker and many other unsung architects and planners. Its population has risen from 233,000 in 1911 to more than 22 million today, including the suburbs of Gurgaon and Noida. Pidgin Punjabi is the lingua franca. Road rage or bargaining is best done in Punjabi. City is becoming increasingly unsafe for fairer sex. More people live sleep on pavement then ever. Better employment opportunity is leading to more migration. Meekness seldom pays. Here in Delhi, you are allowed to celebrate your ethnic festivals. Chhaat Pooja at India Gate, Durga Pooja at Chittaranjan Park, Eid at Jama Masjid or Teej at Dilli Haat. There are no Raj Thackreys here in Delhi. It will be an understatement to say that Delhi truly is a city of contrast. To narrate a story which is about Delhi is always a 'tale of two cities'.
Delhi is where the country's collective anger is manifested. Mandal riots, Masjid riots, Sikh riots; Delhi bears many scars. From Boat Club to Jantar Mantar and now Ram Lila Maidan, expression of dissent seems like the daily chore. Ask Anna Hazare, who seems more like a Delhite now than a Ralegaani holding his hunger strikes, which has become the latest fad of the recent breed of dissenters and old political veterans alike. “lao ya jao” is the new “Gandhian” means to have your way.
Cities like Delhi, which have been the capitals of as many as seven empires before, never die. They just reinvent themselves with a renewed vigor. It could be attributed to the seamless bond between the old and the new. There are 1200 buildings and 175 monuments in Delhi recognised as national heritage sites. Delhi has more art galleries and bookshops than any city in India, apart from national centres for arts, dance and drama. At its heart, Delhi remains a city of stark contrasts. To the outsider, it can be menacing and unrefined but behind that unappealing veneer is a city with an enduring soul and an ongoing romance with the past epitomized in the phrase “Dilli dilwalon ki” (Delhi is of people with heart).

I lived here for about five years and loved it! It seems noisy and chaotic to first-time visitors (and rightly so) but once you get over the initial intensity and start exploring the southern parts of town, you'll find it pretty charming.

Its beautiful India. The city is busy. There are great Hotels and the shopping is amazing. The dust is heavy and like most of India everywhere is dirty. The culinary experience in this country is a wonderland. The range and variety of dishes are never ending. Beware of the street food it can cause you problems you do not want. the tours are great. Its a wonderful to do the Golden Triangle Tour from here. Also a quick trip to the Himalayas and anywhere from here is easily arranged. The visit to the Swami Narayan Temple was an experience to say the least. The Temple Tour was inspiring.
