Delhi- a mystique city with many historical tales at its backdrop ,from a sleepy city to a hub of power struggle from Nadir Shah to Mughals ,a rich cultural heritage emanating from the Ghalib’s  shayari to the epicenter of India’s freedom struggle ,Delhi has seen it all ,tall and standing
From a city which truly reflects the unity in diversity of India Delhi has been in news for all the wrong reasons , for all the worst things

My Delhi – My Delhi would be the one where women are respected, where eve teasing would be a story long forgotten where we won’t have to come out on streets to demand a safe environment for women ,where I can roam anywhere in the night without the fear of being ogled, stalked ,where there would be no more “Nirbhay” My Delhi would be a place where  I can proudly say I am safe as I am a Delhite

We have many problems but the best part is the answer to all  these lie within us only and it is “My Delhi Manifesto”
  This is My Delhi Manifesto in association with
