India’s capital, Delhi, was born of salt and spice as much as from sweat, blood, and tears. An echo of empires, come and gone, is evident from one neighborhood to the next. Old literally meets the newest of new in this massive Indian metropolis.
More populous than the whole of Australia, Delhi’s population is second only to Tokyo. One of the world’s most-polluted cities, Delhi is also one of the greenest. Part of a concerted effort to clean up its act, Delhi’s extensive public transportation system is fueled entirely by clean-burning compressed natural gas (CNG).
