Delhi like most capitals is a busy and fast place. it has all mayor franchises for food, clothing and other item, but it has all the charms that you expect when thinking about going to India.
It has a modern train, which is fast and and clean. The first 2 wagons are only for females, which for me it was great because it was less crowded most of the time.
Something peculiar was that every time before paying to ride the metro, bags were been scan and because I was a female I was send to the blue enclosement and body search manually.
