As you start discovering Delhi , you find how the whole city is developed on Persian background. The old areas - Chandni Chowk , Patel Chowk - happen to flaunt the rich culture of the Golden Bird. The twist comes in the new areas- where Delhi shows its Urban setup- The NYC styled cafes and bars at CP or HKV.
The contrasting effect comes into power with the hustle and bustle of Chandni Chowk where one can find people hogging on their favourite Paranthas while as we move to Patel Chowk one can find inner peace and satisfaction at the holy Baba Saheb Gurudwara.
That is the power of DELHI.
As I strolled in the Garden of Five Senses , I realise how different this city looks when viewed through the eyes of a traveller. The one major difference between Mumbai and Delhi is that Delhi is fast- basically the Washington of India and Mumbai offers you a laid back attitude- the NYC attitude.
Mirza Ghalib Khan said -
I asked my soul ," What is Delhi?" She replied- " The world is the body and Delhi is it's life."
Finally, summing what is Delhi?
Delhi is a mixture of small villages. All cultures and traditions been wrapped by one blanket of love and compassion.
Feels like magic.
The night life of Delhi or the fast working life of the day - Delhi offers you its" soul" and slowly you fall in love with your new city "mate".
