Lobbying in Capitals corridors

first_imgAs per recent surveys, Delhi is among the biggest five cities of the world. The ancient city of Delhi has been transformed from a sleepy government town to a megacity in under three decades. This has completely changed the ethos of the city. Once a town dominated by courteous government officials and small-scale businessmen, Delhi today has changed into a power centre.Once a city becomes a megacity, its residents must adapt themselves in order to survive. Every megacity has its own rules. A resident must know how to abide by these rules. These places are melting pots for regional or global immigrants. Hence ambitions rule supreme.

They may be wearing an expensive watch that will be the cost of a sedan. They will carry three to five expensive phones. Their car however may cost less than their watch, to avoid attention. Most corporate or export lobbyists may opt for Westernwear. They may be extremely pleasant, in well-cut business suits, driving expensive cars to choice social soirees…but they are much harder to spot.last_img read more
