Delhi is a city that defies a one-line description as the capital of India or as the capital of the world's largest democracy. Actually, Delhi is India in miniature; it is 3,287,263 sq. km of India's fantastic variety compressed into 1,483 sq. km.  Over the millennia, it has wooed rulers, attracted plunderers, and provided historians with so many details. Today, even as it preserves an enviable heritage, Delhi is a true cosmopolitan city, always on the move. Delhi remains the centre of power.  Once it was a city of royal power. Then it became the seat of colonial power. Later it was the seat of bureaucratic power. The seat of political power it has always been. Today it is emerging as an important centre for corporate power too. However, the most fascinating aspect of this city is its cosmopolitan nature.
