Changing face of Connaught Place





The Metro has really turned CP into a different shopping center. The skyline and the structure looks the same, but the content has really changed. It used to be a dreary place. I remember going to CP say around 5 years back, and it seemed to be close to a dead and decaying place. Half the shops would be closed, the place was dirty and the inside road reeked of urine. Eating places and restaurants were not so many, and the only ones that were famous were Nirula's and a few assorted one. The cinema halls were decaying, and if you were going with family, you would most likely not go.
Now it is a totally different place. If you really want to see what today's CP looks like, the best place to see it is from a helicopter, but since that is not so likely, another place to get a good view is to get it from the Parikrama restaurant. This is the revolving restaurant on KG Gandhi Marg (formely Curzon Road). From here, you get a view of CP with an excellent view of the central park.
There has been a resurgence, with a lot more shopping experiences and good restaurants. The presence of multiplexes (reformation of existing decaying halls into multiplexes) has made going to CP a family / friend experience worth doing. The inner circle looks much more cleaner now, and the Metro experience has been a good one for CP. The central park promises to give a much cleaner and beautiful central park, and the need for vehicular transportation has been reduced to a much greater need with the Metro running through CP. This resurgence started happening before the Metro came, but has accelerated after the Metro marked its presence in CP.

Delhi and especially Connaught Place has changed a lot. Connaught Place is unrecognizable in terms of swanky buildings and flow of traffic - if one visits it after a gap of a 6-7 years.

The credit for this probably goes to the Supreme Court - which forced the govt. to get its act right with Pollution Control etc.

This really is not the job of Judiciary - but in a country where Administration prefers to sleep, what choice do citizens have.

True, the courts have actually taken over a lot of the executive decision making; using a valid criteria, things that the govt is not doing which affect the citizens affect their quality of life, which in turn can be repaired by the judiciary
