Some of the most engaging blogs about life in the Capital are being run by goras, the slang for mostly white expats from the West. Some of these bloggers are living in Delhi because of the work, and some others because they married Indians. Reading their experiences gives a fresh insight into a city that we thought we knew so well. We give you six not to be missed gora blogs.
