So much development. How many folks live in Dwarka? Looks like it's gobbling up all the available land. Thanks for the picssc, and nice pano.

The projected population is one million but construction is still on.

Yikes sc, the first pic is a bit frightening with the lovely sea of yellow and green overshadowed by the power lines. The building in the 2nd pic looks huge, especially compared to the smaller residential (?) hood in the background. Thanks for the additional pics.

^ A bit strange the way the talls seem to be dropped into the midst of suburban type residential. But then again, I guess that happens in a lot of places. Thanks for the pics sc.

Noida (acronym for New Okhla Industrial Development Authority) is an upcoming city on the other side of river Yamuna. It got its two minutes of fame when the city announced the tallest building in the world (Noida Tower) - a proposal that never made much progress beyond newspaper headlines. Here is a render from one India's top architects.

I know Indian cities are dense as heck, but with so much new development outside of the cities, looks like the US isn't the only country dealing with urban sprawl. :shrug:

Delhi is really turning into a megapolis as the states surrounding it are building many townships to take advantage of the capital city's proximity. But unlike US sprawls, connectivity is still an issue. Although many road projects are under construction, car ownership is still low, public transport is crowded, underfunded and often dangerous. However the Metro rail is growing fast. In the Indian context there needs to be a lot more public transport that is clean, fast and safe. India's urbanization is going through a churning phase. For long (and even today) India's socialist planners were afraid of urbanization and did nothing much in the urban areas. At least today some attention is being paid to urban areas.

Connaught Place often called the "heart" of Delhi is the "border" between New Delhi and Old Delhi. The British built it as a "meeting" place for the Indians who lived in 'Old Delhi' and the British who would stay in "New" Delhi. The distinction still remains except that it is well off Indians and not so well off Indians. South of Connaught place is well planned New Delhi. North of it is the chaotic, unplanned, poor Old Delhi and areas like Paharganj (backpacker hotspot - hence most photos you see of Delhi are of these seedy areas). This park was recently renovated and opened to the public.

I appreciate the insight suncity. Mass transport is a better alternative to the jam packed roads with all the vehicles wasting fuel and spewing pollution.

btw, the last set of night pics looks like couples night out.:D

Mass transport is indeed something that India needs to take more seriously.
