Delhi, the seat of Indian democracy, serves as the political and administrative hub of the country. All of the national political parties have their head offices here, and the highest offices in the country, the Rashtrapati Bhawan, the parliament are in the heart of the city. Delhi is also considered as an academic hub for higher education as there are five central universities in Delhi.
Delhi is truly a melting pot of people from all regions of India, which is reflected in the state bhawans the city has and the fact that the Delhiite can enjoy the food of any given state, an opportunity only the Delhiite has. This is in addition to the dearth of cuisines that can be savoured in Delhi. The Paranthe, the Chole Bhatoore, the chaat, the non-vegetarian in the streets of Chandni Chowk. The Delhiite has the whole country on their plate and is truly a gastronomic delight.

There are many markets, some popular and some hidden away, in Delhi. But all of them selling clothes and other goods that are economical and trendy. Sarojini Nagar, Monastery Market, Janpath market, Chandni Chowk, the list of markets is endless, and so are the type of goods one can shop for in Delhi. From clothes to furniture, from light fixtures to electrical appliances, from mobile phones to old and out of print books.
The Public Transport:
Practically every nook and corner of Delhi has a metro station that has also connected the neighbouring cities of Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad to Delhi. The metro has become an intrinsic part of the Delhiite’s life and has made the traveller’s life easy. The metro and its network earn the city’s bragging rights for it.
