Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. Delhi has been the seat of power for several rulers and many empires for about a millennium. Down the ages the city has been built, destroyed and then rebuilt. Interestingly, many of Delhi’s rulers played a dual role, first as destroyers and then as creators. Delhi is also the political hub of India. The Pandavas in the age of the Mahabharata had their capital at Indraprastha, which is believed to have been geographically located in today’s Delhi. The various Hindu and then Muslim rulers contributed to its growth. The British Raj of course decided to make it the capital of colonized India by shifting the Raj from Kolkata to Delhi in 1911. Thus, on 12 December 2011, the national capital turned 100 years old. In post independence, Delhi is not just the national capital but a thriving, throbbing metropolis with a vibrant culture - a kaleidoscope of India’s cultural diversity.
