Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore. Every one of these cities is a megacity in its own right. New Delhi is the official capital of our country. Mumbai is the financial and ‘filmy’ center. And Bangalore, the technology capital.
They may have a whole new look now, but these cities have been around a lot longer than we have. Long before their modern reputation preceded them; Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, were famed for their highly decorated historical background.
