New Delhi was made the capital of India on this day, 1st April, 108 years back. After thorough discussion, the British rulers decided to shift its Indian capital from Calcutta to Delhi and the new capital, New Delhi was founded in 1912. Viceroy’s House, Legislatures, Ministry buildings, parks, roads etc. were built up to accommodate establishments in the new capital. It is a well planned city. The loss was for Calcutta. It lost the power centre.
More than 25 years I stayed in Delhi and was adjusted to the atmosphere. I could get a lot of friends and comrades and relish the period.
More about Delhi later.
