I have been living in Delhi for the past 30 years. After my marriage, I shifted from Jaipur to Delhi and never looked back. But nowadays, I am often asked this question – ‘Why do you still live in Delhi?’ The question doesn’t surprise me. Delhi had been facing lots of issues recently. The traffic jams were always there, but the rising pollution levels are really a health hazard. In recent years, the city had witnessed some of the most horrific crimes against women and it is not safe to go alone at night. Recent riots in Delhi have only aggravated the situation. But I still prefer to live in Delhi. One of the major reasons is the habit. This has been my home for decades and I have become used to the city, its roads, its people, and the environment. I am not willing to adjust myself to a new city and new challenges. But there is much more which keeps me in Delhi.
