10000$ New Dehli III

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/13/Humanyu.JPG

New Delhi (Hindi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindi_language): नई दिल्ली, Punjabi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punjabi_language): ਨਵੀਂ ਦਿੱਲੀ), an urban area within the metropolis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolis) of Delhi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delhi), is the seat of the Government of India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_of_India). It is one of the three municipal corporations of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Capital_Territory_of_Delhi).

Calcutta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcutta) was the historic centre of the British (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom) presence in India, and effectively the capital of the British East India Company (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_East_India_Company). However, Delhi had been the historic capital of much of the subcontinent for long historic periods. In particular, it had been the most recent capital of the Mughals (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mughal). There remained an association with Imperial grandeur that the British Raj (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raj) tried to use by holding several durbars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durbar) for the Viceroy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viceroy) and visiting Royalty. In 1911 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1911), at the King-Emperor George V's Coronation Durbar, the announcement was made that the capital of the Raj (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raj) was to be shifted from Calcutta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcutta) to Delhi.

New Delhi was laid out to the south of the older city constructed by Shah Jahan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shah_Jahan), which is now often referred to as Old Delhi. However, New Delhi overlays many of the previous cities constructed there; hence it includes many monuments of previous cities, and constructions.

Much of New Delhi was planned by Sir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir)Edwin Lutyens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwin_Lutyens), who laid out a grandiose central administrative area as a testament to British imperial pretensions. Rajpath (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajpath) - then Kingsway - stretched from the War Memorial - now India Gate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_Gate) to the Viceroy's House - Rashtrapati Bhavan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashtrapati_Bhavan) atop Raisina Hill. In its scale, extravagance and magnificence, it was not unlike Washington, or Haussmann (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haussmann) and his patron Napoleon III (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napoleon_III)'s Paris, both cities designed to awe the newcomer with the power of the central State. Tucked away are other clues to the worldview of the designers; Herbert Baker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Baker)'s Parliament House (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_House) is barely visible from Rajpath (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajpath), as deliberative democracy was not a central part of Britain's plans for India; in fact, the main entrance to the Central Secretariat North Block (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Block) declares "Liberty does not descend to the people; they must raise themselves to it."
