This feels wonderful, Delhi,

For you show us the grandeur of our past

The kings who once breathed their last

On this land, all powerful, left us splendid

Marvels, the tourists all attended,

The spicy food, the President’s guard,

The everyday man’s simple jugaad,

Overloaded trucks, the skinny driver,

The ironic filth in the holy river,

And yet, you are the liveliest city,

Couldn’t you just be near the sea?
