Cities in India

Cities of India with its rich cultural and architectural legacy, panoramic locales, diversity of languages and variety of cuisine and lifestyle is challenging to explore. The camel rides of Rajasthan, boat cruises along the backwaters of Kerala on kettuvallams (houseboats), Shikara (houseboat) rides on Dal Lake, visit to immortal monuments like the Taj Mahal at Agra are some of the experiences worth cherishing.

Indian cities capture the diversity of the country in its true spirit. The metro cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai – have distinct characteristic features. Mumbai's old buildings are reminiscent of Victorian age, languishes more in the larger-than-life glamor of Bollywood, while Delhi's history dates back to the Khiljis of 13th century, is more poignant in the administrative boulevards at the heart of the city. Kolkata, the city of letters, is revolutionary, struggling to shrug of its colonial hang-over. Barring the metro rail, and a few newly-built complexes in south Kolkata, the city is like the Tin-Drum character of Gunter Grass, like the one who has decided not to grow any further.

Chennai will take you along the complexities of temple architecture, dance and Carnatic music. Forget about Hindi, one of the two official languages of India, while you converse with people in Chennai. Thanks to James Bond like characters of Tamil film industry, Chennai is self-sufficient in its dreams and fantasies.

Two tier and three tier cities of India are also hogging the limelight nowadays as industries, particularly Information Technology (IT) and Information Technology enabled Services (ITeS) try to reach less costly destinations. Bangalore, Hyderabad, Gurgaon, Kochi, Pune and Chandigarh are a few IT hubs of India. Other cities of India include, Bubaneshwar, Thiruvananthapuram, Lucknow, Jaipur, Bhopal, Nagpur, Indore, Ranchi, Patna, Ahmedabad and Guwahati.
