There’s no better feeling than setting a courageous goal for yourself and defying all the odds to achieve it. While you may be comfortable living in your hometown, sometimes moving to a new place is an experience like no other. 

So if you haven't already, take the plunge and move to Delhi. Here are some of the wonderful things you’ll discover along the way.

1. Because Delhi is perhaps the only city in India which has preserved its historical roots despite becoming a commercial metropolitan. Don't you want to be a part of past and present at the same time?

12. Live in Delhi and experience the madness at Rajiv Chowk because if you can survive Rajiv Chowk, you can survive anything.

Delhi with its rich past is the perfect contrast between Occident and the Orient. From just another dot on the map of British India to the capital of the world's largest democracy, the story of Delhi is not any less dramatic and inspiring than a Bollywood movie. Delhi, the perpetual city, has a soul and history like no other city in India.
