India’s Identity

October 8, 2013 | By

Mirza Ghalib did rightly extol,
The world is the body, Delhi its soul
Welcome to Delhi-City of your dreams
Elegant, diverse, cultured and suprem


The National Monuments in the National Capital of India

Mirza Ghalib did rightly extol

The world is the body, Delhi its soul

Welcome to Delhi-City of your dreams

Elegant, diverse, cultured and supreme

The pride of the people

The capital of the nation

A kaleidoscope of colours

Its tourist’s favourite destination

Qawalis, bhajans, gurbanis and prayers

Diwali, Id, Baisakhi and more

The hub for cultural bonanzas

There are festivals and celebrations galore

Extraordinary is the glamour

Of Delhi’s history

Seven different capitals

Such is its story

Lal Kot, Siri Fort, Tughlakabad

Jahanpanah, Firoz Shah Kotla, Deenpanah

Shahjahanabad and finally New Delhi

This is the tale of the seven cities

Humanyun’s Tomb and Qutab Minar

Red Fort and LotusTemple

India Gate to top it all

Mosques, forts and monuments ample

The Parliament House, the Rashtrapathi Bhavan

Buildings that define our administration

The Rajpath road to lead us there

And Rajghat for the father of the nation

Tihar is in Delhi

It’s India’s best jail

And police officers in uniform

Fighting crimes without fail

Chandni Chowk is the foodie’s delight

Famous for Paranthewali Gali

Tasty kababs, lip smacking biryani

And street side favourite Bhelpuri

Chaat corner offers a wide range

Dhokle, gol guppe and pav bhaji

Delhi is home to all cuisines

Mughlai, South Indian and Punjabi

Delhi is the shopper’s paradise

With Saket’s famous shopping malls

CP for its architectural design

Mehruali with Mughal embroidery on the walls

Commonwealth Games in our city

Trade Fair at Pragati Maidan

Rich heritage, glorious lifestyle

Yehi hai Delhi meri jaan!

Namaste! I'm Chaitali Wadhwa. I'm a poet by choice and a debater by nature. I aspire to be a lawyer!
