Delhi, Oh Delhi


Delhi oh Delhi, the city which leaves you confused with a love hate relationship with itself. Its like biting into a sour yet juicy slice of lemon, which initially blows your senses off but you gradually start to enjoy it once you give in to its after taste.

Delhi is the capital of India with a population of approx. 18 million, thats just a few million short of Australia's population which is far more larger in size compared to entire India's area. Delhi has been continuously inhabited since the 6th century BC. Through most of its history, Delhi has served as a capital of various kingdoms and empires. It has been captured, ransacked and rebuilt several times, particularly during the medieval period.

From old forts and cultural sights to big shopping malls and pubs, you can see it all in Delhi, its like a part of every city clustered into one. The people here are street smart, business minded yet friendly, willing to help and hospitable. They may appear egoistic and shrewd from outside but inside they are all soft hearted, you just have to strike the right chords with them.

The city is also a haven for food lovers, the streets of Delhi boast of some of the most unique and delicious food items in the entire country. The street food is something that shouldn’t be given a miss when in Delhi. From the by-lanes of food streets to multi cuisine restaurants, they all know how to please your taste buds.
