Some call it a collection of villages.
Has extreme weathers and a strong immigration culture making it a truly Indian city. So there are punjabi, sindhi, bengali, bihari, madrasi, chinki, african and tibetan ghettos among others.
It is also the city will most roundabouts, most things are gol gol in Delhi, from the Parliament to the India Gate circle and to the way the Government functions.

Other mammoth like ungli-ready cities of India have changed their name to their "original" names when they had perfectly normal names like Bombay, Madras, Calcutta and Bangalore.
No, the ungli-readies had to go with ridiculous pronunciations of those names and rename them Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkotta and Bengarurururururuluru or something.

Delhi is confident enough to let people call it what they want and logical enough to know that people who speak different languages will pronounce words differently.
