Eternal Quotes on Delhi

Delhi words

Ghalib had once said, “The world is the body and Delhi its life” : A veracious statement indeed. Be it the Mughal era or the present day, Delhi has maintained its gravity and grandeur throughout the flow of time. It is the city of variations. It is the city of hoi polloi and the powerful politicos. It is the city of diversity. Different languages; communities; religions; cuisines, you name it and the multifaceted variegated diversity thrives here in every field! When asked “What Delhi is all about?”, I’d say Delhi lies in between extremes, the two far contrasting ends of a culture, the perfect median to outliers. From congested gallis of Chandni Chowk to the sumptuous pubs and restaurants in Hauz Khas. From getting a taste of the desi chole bhatures to treating your taste buds to the Tibetan cuisine in the tibetan refugee area (also referred to as Majnu ka tilla). From the crowded markets at Sarojini to posh malls in Saket. The city lies in between them. Ghalib was right. It offers a life to the whole country, and to the world. it’s indeed the best analogy to life. It’s unpredictable, be it in social or political terms. It’s full of surprises. It’s yours only if you value it and consider it yours, quite like your life. Read on to find the most popular quotes on Delhi.
