Our City

OUR CITY NEW DELHI…….THE CITY OF ITS KIND…..
WE ARE PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN AND LIVING IN IT’S CAPITAL NEW DELHI….IS A PLEASURE!!!
FROM MY POINT OF VIEW DELHI IS A CITY HAVING EVERYTHING WHAT THE PEOPLE NEED….
NEW DELHI ALSO KNOWN AS “DILLI” (LOCALLY) AND “NATIONAL CAPITAL TERRITORY OF DELHI” (OFFICIAL NAME) IS ONE OF THE FOUR METROPOLITAN…
IT IS THE LARGEST METROPOLITAN BY AREA AND SECOND-LARGEST METROPOLITAN BY THE POPULATION IN INDIA….IT IS THE EIGHTH LARGEST METROPOLITAN BY WORLD’ S POPULATION WITH MORE THAN 12.25 MILLION INHABITANTS IN THE TERRITORY!!!
IT IS LOCATED ON THE BANKS OF RIVER YAMUNA…

IT HAS BEEN DESIGNED BY EDWARD LUTYENS IN THE 20TH CENTURY.AND IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE “WALLED CITY”.
AFTER THE BRITISH INDIA COMPANY HAD GAINED CONTROL OF MUCH OF INDIA DURING THE 18TH AND 19TH CENTURIES, THEY DECLARED CALCUTTA AS THEIR CAPITAL UNTIL GEORGE V ANNOUNCED IN 1911 THAT DELHI BE THE CAPITAL BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH AT THAT TIME CALCUTTA WAS THE CAPITAL, EVERY IMPORTANT EVENT WAS HAPPENING IN NEW DELHI SO HE SAID THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER IF WE HAVE DELHI AS OUR CAPITAL INSTEAD OF CALCUTTA.
AND THIS IS HOW WE HAVE GOT OUR CAPITAL AS NEW DELHI!!!
