  1. New Delhi, Rajdhani, the City of Djinns, Hastinapur or Indraprastha. Call it by any name or sobriquet you wish, but it’s impossible to not end up remembering it by its most heartfelt, its unforgettable nickname Dilli, with ample dil (heart) in it.

    The city of love, the city of heartbreak; the city of migration, the city of settlements; the city of history, the city of the future; the city of power, the city of the powerless; the city of abuses and violence, the city of justice; the city of writers and journalists, the city of art and architecture; the city of the Mughal garden, the city of pollution; the city that cannot stop growing and gobbling up towns all around as agglomerations in the NCR; the city with the reckless ambition to become everything a city can be and should not be. Dilli, like the heart, holds every emotion and irony within, preserved with a characteristic nonchalance. Just like its history.

    Delhi is perhaps the most beautiful place to spend winter in India. Leaving behind the dryness of summer and the unpredictability of rains, Delhi in December embodies just the right kind of cold. A cold that makes you want to hold someone you love, close. I am in the balcony of a friend’s house, gazing at the old dilapidated Khirki mosque, with countless domes on top and perforated windows on the sides that lend the monument its name. Built in the 1300s by the prime minister of Tughlaq dynasty, it served as a fortress and later, a mosque. Nowadays, bats and djinns reside in them. Like they do in most of the archaic monuments of this great city.

    Despite (or maybe because of) its vices, Dilli seems nothing less than a seductress. If you spend enough alone time with it, it bewitches you, making you fall in love with it like no other city. Soon, the relationship troubles start. See, even though Dilli is loving, it is non-committal to the core. It is never sure about you, and you can never be sure about it either. It will make you feel terribly missed when you’re away, but it won’t care an ounce once you return. Like now. I spent my good ten years here, and now when I’m back, it makes me feel nothing. Not unwelcome, but not welcome either. It’s as if I don’t exist. It’s a terrible feeling. I like Mumbai better in this regard. It doesn’t make you feel missed at all. You know Mumbai doesn’t care, and it doesn’t care in real. It’s easy to accept a city like that. But Delhi, tch tch, it gives heartburns. The problem is you love more when you are loved less. You can’t help but love this city for its indifference to you.

    The home to Mirza Ghalib, Arundhati Roy and Vikram Seth, there’s a reason why writers choose to make Delhi their home. Delhi has character. A rather strong character, that’s elusive but all-encompassing. It is like the protagonist of a literary novel, leaving behind an entourage of unanswered questions for those reading it. Imagine the joy it holds for a reader (also a writer) who spends time with this great protagonist, this great novel of a city.

    Delhi, despite its two faces, has one heart. A heart that speaks out to you, making you listen sooner or later. To me, Delhi is a loud boisterous macho man who thinks from his heart but acts with his mind. And that’s why it always seems earnest at first but eventually ends up disappointing you. Every single time. It can’t help it. Delhi, a city as old as time, but still with a teenage heart.

    Phew! I poured my heart out there. Little did I know that I had so much angst and fondness for this unforgiving city. I will take a deep breath now. In the meanwhile, why don’t you let your impassioned words describe your city? How does the city you call your home make you feel? Personify them. If your city were a human, how would it behave?
    let your city know.

    Before I leave, I have two non-fiction book recommendations if you like Delhi: The City of Djinns by William Dalrymple & Capital by Rana Dasgupta. I also recommend the novel A Bad Character by Deepti Kapoor that talks about being 20, restless in Delhi and letting the city absorb you.
