The lavish highways the broad roads, the luxurious lanes all these appropriately define the capital city of Delhi. Delhi is just not the capital of our country by namesake but its qualities prove that it is worth maintaining the status. The English had made Kolkata as their capital city but it was their wisdom which made them move their capital city to Delhi
As soon as you enter the city you feel mesmerized by the lavish roads in here. Delhi is now completely connected with all modes of transport. Having an area of 1,484 km2 and having all of it connected with some or the other modes of transportation is not an easy job. Delhi is fortunate enough to have metros, buses, auto, rickshaws and sharing autos as prime modes of transportation. Every delhite would support me when I say that this is the best city to travel in. all the modes are easily accessible and user friendly apart from being cheap. If anyone would want to drive in his own personal vehicle that option Is also available. Delhi is well connected with roads and highways throughout. While NH10 connects delhi to the end town of Fazilka in Punjab near Indo pak border, NH24 connects Delhi to Uttar Pradesh state capital – Lucknow via Ghaziabad, Moradabad and sitapur. All this shows how well connected Delhi is with other neighbouring regions. For a state like delhi it is also important to maintain such link as it Is expanding day in and day out. The outgrowth of national capital region is a testimony to this fact. Vaishali vasundhara in the east and Gurgaon and Faridabad in south are emerging regions near Delhi which are as important as the national capital. People from small cities migrate to Delhi with hopes of leading a better quality of life and they settle here. So it is important that thee people are well connected with the rest of Delhi. The starting of new metro lines from vaishali to Dwarka has eased the lives of many people.
When it comes to design the capital city enjoys its own special place. The city has a blend of historical Mughal era combined with the classy English royal touch in some places to the very modern era of free independent India. The places in Delhi are well designed keeping in mind the people inhabiting the area there. Like earlier people who were refugees from Bangladesh settles in chittaranjan park which has ow transformed to mini Calcutta. Likewise Punjabi bagh and tagore garden area are mostly inhabited by refugees from Pakistan.
When u look at modern delhi you look at vishwavidyalaya in north delhi which is a university area. Most of the colleges of delhi university are located here which makes it a student hub. In a similar way the design of the city has been made with so much ease that all the areas are well defined and well demarcated as to have a proper order.
Delhi is not Delhi because it is the national capital, Delhi is the national capital because no other city has such a well structured design and connectivity as it has.
