Clean Delhi, Green Delhi is the slogan that is promoted by the Delhi government on a big level to make the city more greener and a great tourist attraction. Infact the capital city of Delhi is quoted as Green Delhi for its lush greenery scattered around the whole city that Delhi got from its colonial empire. The rows of green trees on the road side, well maintained green lawns and parks, beautiful green natural surroundings gave the capital the title of Green Delhi. Also making it the greenest city of India, and a great place to spend holidays with nature.
Since time immemorial, Delhi has been a favoured place for green lovers and a haven for solitude lovers. Even today, when the whole city pulsates with the rhythms of modernity, you can easily find some serene sectors nestling under the amiable shades of Neem and Jamun. First the Mughals and then the British, fell in love with this princely state, and spend millions to beautify their territory. Sandstone monuments still held their head high amidst lush green sectors that add to the wonderful landscape. Delhi with its gardens and green spaces, with its high levels of income and with its avenues for employment attracts nearby 5 lakh persons by way of in-migration every year. This rapid growth of Delhi has resulted in enormous pressure on existing service infrastructure and a significant increase in all types of environmental pollution. In an attempt to counterveil the intention, Delhi government has taken many unbeaten initiatives, and today the national capital flaunts of being one of the greenest places of tourist interest.
A number of intensive protection and rehabilitation measures have been taken recently that makes for a cleaner and greener change in Delhi's outlook. Delhites have actively participated in eco-care programmes including the anti-littering and anti-plastic bag campaigns, and as a fruit of their pains, Delhi today enjoys a true green look. Even school children have eschewed the fun of burning fire crackers on the event of Diwali, one of the most celebrated national festivals of India. Hundreds of plants are rooted everyday for a fresher breath. Some of the serene pockets, as those nestling in Central and South Delhi, are so refreshing that a stay gives a real enchantment. So much so, you can even feel a sudden drop in temperature if you move through them. As a mandatory measure, every residential society is fringed with silent parks and lush manicured gardens, if possible. It makes for a nice place to jog in the morning and a playground for children who hem in here with their caretakers in the evening. Interestingly, some of the modern sectors around India Gate also flaunts of trees and fruit saplings, a government owned pleasure for enthusiastic Delhites. Enjoy the charm of picking up raw mangoes and savouring them with a tinch of common salt. Wow, that tastes amazing! In a nutshell, the whole of Delhi has emerged as a green and clean park, where you can relax despite the cacophony of modernity.
