New Delhi is India's capital.

Delhi is a huge swarming metropolis, where old and new India stand in stark contrast. There are gleaming new suburbs, where the wealthy live behind gates. There is the concrete commercial centre of Connaught Place with its bars and shopping malls. Then there are the masses of people living by the sides of roads, under bridges, in railway stations, scratching a living through begging and hawking. The teeming mass of Old Delhi is like a place that time forgot.
