Love Delhi for
... Its many different personalities. There is no other city that offers so many different choices all at once. If you get sick and tired of the fast city life, you can just pop into a place like Shahpur Jat or Hauz Khas Village and unwind. You get a craving for Tibetan, drive down to Majnu ka Tila (Tibetan Market); if you are craving anything else, all you have to do is pay a negligible amount of money at Dilli Haat and enjoy cuisines of any of the states in India! When you feel rich and indulgent, Emporio is a stone’s throw away. When your paycheck arrives late and you have nothing to wear (or so you think), take an auto to Sarojini Nagar. Who can HATE a city with so much to offer?? Having said that, Delhi takes as much as it gives. It is not a city for the feeble-hearted.

Traffic, traffic, traffic!
Connect with Delhi
I have been here for more than five years now. I came here as a wide-eyed fuchcha (fresher). Since then, the city has moulded me into who I am today. Delhi is an integral part of me now and in many ways, it has made me a strong person. I have tried living away from the city for a while but it always, ALWAYS beckons me back.
