Delhi is an amazing city. It, truly, is amazing. You find ancient monuments coexisting with modern condominiums. Symbolic – one may say for that’s how the society is structured too. You have the primitive-in-thinking conservatives dwelling peacefully along with modern, global-in-approach liberals. Of the many benchmarks to rate the diversity of a society if one was to apply the range of expletives used in common parlance as an indicator of the diversity of a society – Delhi would top the charts.

The local inhabitants, the Dilliwalahs, are known to be large-hearted. It shows in their behaviour everywhere except for when it comes to car parking areas. They are extremely possessive, greedy to extent of being paranoid, about their parking spaces. The average Dilliwalah is also extremely well networked. Everybody seems to have somebody of considerable influence on their fast-dial list – a list the citizens are often seen boasting of while threatening the local cop who has inadvertently caught the Dilliwalah for a hundred bucks fine.

This blog – stateofdelhi attempts to capture all that happens in this city-state that’s largely inconsequential but important nonetheless.


The Logo Explained

The ‘d’ of Delhi is obvious, isn’t it?

It is the ‘s’ representing ‘state’ that takes some time registering.

And once you have deciphered the ‘s’ and the ‘d’ you can easily figure out the ‘o’.

The colour green has been used to add credence to the myth that Delhi is the greenest capital city in the world.

The logo is a registered entity so readers are advised not to mess with it. Except for homo sapiens no other animals have been used or tortured during the construct of this blog.
