India’s capital New Delhi welcomed the first pre-monsoon rain today after weeks of scorching summer heat. Although peacocks dance in such rains, perhaps Delhi doesn’t have any peacock these days.

You can only see an army of stray dogs running on the streets. Delhi is famous for its stray dogs and politicians of all shapes and sizes. Plus, today Delhi is the world’s most polluted and the dirtiest city.

I have captured a few still and moving images of today’s rain in my device. You can also enjoy these moments with me.

With a population of over 25 million, now Delhi is the world’s second most populous city after Tokyo. That means, it needs an extraordinary administrative framework to provide good governance and citizen services to people to improve their quality of life.

However, today Delhi is in such a pathetic state that it lacks even basic facilities for the people. Poisonous pollution, broken roads, stray cattle, littering, and open defecation are among the irritants that make Delhi a veritable hell on earth.

Delhi welcomes you. Come at your own risk.
