People of Delhi

Delhi is a metropolitan city with a predominantly north Indian population made up of the fun-loving Punjabis,the robust Haryanavi, the sober UPite and the gentler Rajasthanis. There is also a smattering of people from the southern states of India who have settled here and made Delhi their home. So it is truly "unity in diversity.'

While the newer sections of the city are like any other modern metropolis, the older areas still follow a conservative lifestyle. Even today, in the older Muslim settlements women can be seen wearing the dark burqa, while traditional Hindu areas have women covering their heads with the dupatta. Except for these traditional pockets, women can move around freely without any strict dress code. It’s a dynamic and aggressive society, hospitable and ostentatious, charismatic in a loud sort of way. Many stratum co-exist – the power brokers in the government corridors, the glitterati and the literati, the traditional business families and the new,fast multiplying business yuppies.
