The best thing Delhi has taught me

You create your own universe as you go along. – Paulo Coelho

I remember my days in Delhi.

Delhi is the National Capital Region of my country. We also call it the heart of our country, not just in terms of its geographical location, but also for its very welcoming culture.

Delhi is located at the center of 7 different states, each with a unique culture, language and attitude. It is sometimes hard to keep up with the accents and all, However, being in such a mixed culture comes with an added advantage : you can truly be yourself!

Because you never need to learn a particular language, or act in some typical attitude, the best option you have is to just behave as yourself. The famous line saying “While in Rome, Behave like Romans”, fails in Delhi. Instead, “Wherever you go, Retain yourself”.

That is what Delhi has taught me. I still try to follow that.

Thanks for reading.
