00:42
those two cities and um
00:44
yeah should be pretty exciting so these
00:46
are the 13
00:47
key differences in the daily lives of
00:49
people in delhi versus mumbai
00:52
let’s go location delhi is located in
00:54
the central northern part of
00:56
india and is made up of 11 districts
00:58
including new delhi which serves as the
01:00
capital of the country
01:01
in fact delhi isn’t part of any indian
01:04
state but rather is located in the
01:06
national capital territory mumbai on the
01:08
other hand is located on the west coast
01:10
and touches the arabian sea
01:12
it is the largest city in india and is
01:14
made up of seven
01:15
islands mumbai is also the capital of
01:17
the state of maharashtra
01:18
basically mumbai is to india what new
01:21
york is to the united states of america
01:23
the largest city and also
01:24
on an island population delhi is the
01:27
second most populated city in
01:28
india with 16.8 million people calling
01:31
it home
01:32
it’s estimated that 40 of the population
01:34
are migrants from other states in
01:36
india and it has the highest rate of
01:37
interstate migration
01:39
in the country people move to delhi for
01:41
a plethora of reasons but the main ones
01:43
are for work education and
01:44
love in comparison mumbai is the most
01:47
populated city in
01:48
india the seventh most populous city in
01:50
the world with a population of nearly 20
01:53
million people
01:54
mumbai’s population is made up of 43
01:56
migrants but more than
01:57
half of them are from mumbai state of
01:59
maharashtra people mostly move to mumbai
02:01
for the many job
02:02
opportunities as mumbai is the financial
02:04
capital of india
02:05
yeah most people you will meet in mumbai
02:08
definitely have that entrepreneurial
02:09
spirit you know they’re always thinking
02:10
of what to buy and sell and do and what
02:12
kind of service to provide and
02:15
there’s a lot of tech companies there as
02:16
well it’s pretty pretty incredible
02:18
public transportation
02:20
delhi has some of the best public
02:21
transportation in india in delhi buses
02:24
reigns supreme as the most popular form
02:26
of public transportation and they
02:27
account for about
02:28
60 percent of demand in recent years
02:30
however delhi has gotten to work on
02:32
building a
02:33
metro and it has gained popularity with
02:35
about 6 million daily riders in 2020.
02:38
there also are
02:39
other options like auto rickshaws uber
02:41
and car hires all of which are popular
02:43
with
02:43
tourists mumbai also has an extensive
02:46
public transportation service within the
02:47
city
02:48
52 of commuters use public
02:50
transportation especially the metro
02:52
buses and trains
02:53
additionally rickshaws taxis ubers
02:55
ferries and even a
02:56
seaplane service are other ways for
02:58
people to get around mumbai
03:00
or if you’re anything like me you will
03:02
know that the best option
03:04
to transport yourself from point a to
03:06
point b in india is with a motorbike
03:08
so if you get a motorbike you are a
03:10
bloody legend
03:12
welcome to the club housing according to
03:15
data released by the government there
03:17
are roughly 750 slumps
03:19
in delhi some big sim small with around
03:21
2 million people calling them home which
03:23
is roughly 12
03:24
of the population a relatively low
03:26
percentage of people live
03:27
in slums compared to other cities
03:29
because rent in delhi is fairly
03:31
reasonable for many people as the
03:32
average cost for a one-bedroom apartment
03:34
in the city center comes to 231 us
03:37
dollars per month and the average
03:38
monthly salary is 520 us dollars
03:41
housing is very different in mumbai
03:43
however where 42 percent of people live
03:45
in slums in fact the largest slum in
03:47
india that radhi is also located in
03:50
mumbai
03:50
this is because mumbai is very expensive
03:52
and for many living in the slums is the
03:54
only affordable option the average cost
03:56
for a one bedroom city center apartment
03:58
is
03:59
585 us dollars per month which is
04:02
actually more than the average monthly
04:03
salary of 555 us dollars
04:06
yeah spending time in mumbai i actually
04:07
realized that for some people it’s
04:09
a pretty decent decision to decide to
04:12
live in the slums because you can still
04:14
you know do your white collar job
04:16
anywhere you like but the rent is
04:18
literally
04:19
10 or 20 or 30 times cheaper you know so
04:21
you end up saving so much more money
04:23
because otherwise life is incredibly
04:25
expensive pollution delhi is
04:27
unfortunately consistently rated as one
04:29
of the most polluted cities
04:30
in the world and air pollution alone
04:32
contributes to more than 10
04:34
000 deaths in the city each year in fact
04:37
it’s very common to see thick clouds of
04:39
smog that are
04:39
toxic to breed the air pollution is
04:42
mostly caused by motor vehicles and
04:43
construction
04:44
in recent years the government and some
04:46
private organizations have tried to curb
04:48
the air pollution problem but
04:50
up to this point very little has worked
04:52
mumbai sees comparatively less pollution
04:55
than delhi but they still see
04:56
way too much because of their location
04:58
on the sea the breezes and heavier moons
05:00
ones help to blow away a lot of the
05:02
pollution but they still
05:03
often experience dangerous levels that
05:05
are harmful for people to breathe
05:07
unfortunately little has been done to
05:09
curb their emissions but hopefully
05:11
in the future they will be able to okay
05:13
you legend let’s take a very short break

and uh yeah been doing as many videos as
05:54
you like
05:55
thank you so much and let’s get back to
05:57
the video education
05:58
children in delhi have a great access to
06:01
education in fact there are over 5
06:03
700 schools in the city and over 90
06:06
percent of children
06:06
regularly attend not only that but delhi
06:09
has a literacy rate of 86
06:11
and girls make up 49 of all total
06:14
enrolled students
06:15
delhi also has four major universities
06:17
and 16 of the population holds a
06:19
university
06:20
degree mumbai also has excellent access
06:22
to education they have almost
06:23
4 000 schools and a 99.3 enrollment rate
06:27
for students between the ages of 6 to
06:29
14. their literacy rate is almost
06:31
90 and they are home to two major
06:33
universities the university of mumbai is
06:35
even one of the largest universities
06:37
in the world with over 700 affiliated
06:39
colleges
06:40
just consider for a second 700
06:43
affiliated colleges
06:46
imagine the size um if any one of you
06:48
legends actually said it in the
06:50
university of mumbai
06:51
let us know in the comment section down
06:52
below tell us about that experience
06:54
how does it feel to study in a
06:56
university that big it’s
06:58
crazy green space delhi might be known
07:00
for being a congested
07:02
city but they actually have eighteen
07:04
thousand parks of all different sizes
07:06
for their citizens and visitors to enjoy
07:08
these parks include the loddi gardens
07:10
buddha jayanti park the garden of five
07:12
senses deer park
07:14
and the jhan panna city forest on the
07:17
other hand mumbai only has 32 parks and
07:19
gardens throughout the city because of
07:21
their higher population and smaller
07:23
area of land compared to delhi however
07:25
mumbai has some gorgeous parks like the
07:27
hanging gardens kamala negro park
07:29
nirvana
07:30
park central park and sanji gandhi
07:32
national park where if you’re lucky you
07:34
can catch a glimpse of one of the tigers
07:36
that still
07:37
live there just imagine going to a
07:39
national park in a big city
07:41
and actually seeing a wild tiger
07:44
that would be an incredible experience
07:46
of course if you would surrender
07:49
popular food india is an incredibly
07:52
diverse country
07:52
food included delhi has tons of
07:54
incredible local dishes and it would be
07:56
impossible to name them all but some of
07:58
the most popular ones
07:59
include parrantas chole batura buttered
08:02
chicken and
08:03
momos just like with deli there’s no way
08:05
i could name all of the foods that are
08:07
very famous
08:08
in mumbai but here are some of the most
08:10
popular ones
08:11
pav bhaji batatabada masala dosa and
08:14
panipuri oh yeah india definitely has
08:17
some of the best food in the entire
08:18
world and the best part about their food
08:20
for me
08:21
is that i’m a vegetarian so everywhere i
08:23
go in india i can find vegetarian
08:25
options and it’s literally the only
08:27
country like this in the whole world
08:29
thank you so much india for that love
08:31
you the food is epic
08:32
nightlife delhi does have a nightlife
08:34
scene but it’s somewhat sparse compared
08:36
to what westerners are used to
08:38
delhi is considered by many as unsafe at
08:40
night so people generally go out to bars
08:42
and clubs in large groups and don’t
08:44
socialize much with strangers especially
08:47
women
08:47
also even though they have a wide range
08:49
of nightlife activities to choose from
08:51
many bars restaurants clubs bowling
08:53
alleys and cinemas will generally close
08:55
between 12
08:55
and 1am mumbai on the other hand is a
08:58
different story according to many locals
09:00
mumbai
09:01
never sleeps while many bars and clubs
09:03
close between midnight
09:04
and 1 am like in delhi there are just as
09:06
many that stay open until
09:08
four or five am it’s also completely
09:10
normal to find people out and about in
09:12
the streets at all hours hanging out
09:14
with friends eating street food
09:16
or taking a late night show down the
09:18
marina and just in case
09:19
you are seeking to find the best party
09:22
of your entire life my friend
09:23
no worries just make sure you go to
09:25
india during holi the festival of
09:27
colors because everyone’s going to be
09:29
throwing colors at you and there’s going
09:30
to be a lot of water everywhere and it’s
09:32
going to be
09:32
insane trust me i know tourism
09:36
delhi is one of the most visited cities
09:38
in india and in 2015 it was the 28th
09:40
most visited city in the world by
09:42
foreign tourists that same year they had
09:44
over 5.9
09:45
million foreign tourists visiting their
09:47
city from countless countries the top
09:49
three being
09:50
bangladesh the united states and the
09:51
united kingdom delhi is also part of the
09:53
so-called golden triangle which are the
09:55
three cities the others being agra and
09:57
jaipur that many tourists visit on their
09:59
first trip to india mumbai
10:01
unsurprisingly is also a huge tourist
10:04
hotspot in 2015 they received over 5.7
10:07
million tourists and were the 30th most
10:10
visited location
10:11
in the world and they received many of
10:12
the same foreign tourists as
10:14
delhi tourism is a massive business in
10:16
mumbai and over seven percent
10:18
of the labor force in mumbai works in
10:20
the tourism industry
10:21
attractions delhi has tons of things to
10:23
do and see including three unesco world
10:26
heritage sites humayun’s tom which was
10:28
built in 1570 for the mukul
10:30
emperor kutum a 73 meter tall minaret
10:33
that was first
10:34
under construction in 1192 and the
10:37
redford which was built as a palace for
10:39
the fifth mughal
10:40
emperor and served as royal residence
10:42
for almost 200 years
10:44
other great things to see in delhi
10:46
include the india gate the lotus temple
10:47
and the purana
10:49
just like delhi mumbai has three unesco
10:51
world heritage sites which
10:52
include victorian and art deco ensemble
10:55
a collection of 19th century neo-gothic
10:57
and 20th century art deco buildings
11:00
chetrapati shivaji terminus a train
11:02
station which began construction in 1887
11:05
and the elephanta caves which are a
11:07
series of the hindu cave temples
11:09
dedicated to the god shiva just
11:11
10 kilometers outside the city some
11:13
other incredible places to check out
11:15
include the gateway to
11:16
india marina drive the kanger caves and
11:18
the global vipassana pagoda
11:20
obviously it’s impossible to name all
11:22
the epic things you can do in both of
11:24
these two cities so
11:25
i guess you just gotta go there yourself
11:27
and see where life takes you
11:29
weather delhi’s weather isn’t hot all
11:32
year round like many people might think
11:34
the hot season runs from april to
11:36
october and the cold season from
11:37
november to march
11:38
the average temperatures in delhi range
11:40
from 2 to 47 degrees celsius the highest
11:43
recorded temperature in delhi was 48.4
11:46
degrees celsius and the lowest was
11:48
minus 2.2 delhi also experiences a moon
11:51
swim season from the end of june
11:52
until october that makes summers there
11:55
incredibly human
11:56
mumbai however has much different
11:58
weather because they are located further
12:00
south they experience a much shorter
12:02
cooler season from december to february
12:04
with
12:04
averages around 30 degrees celsius but
12:07
even in their hot season the average
12:09
high temperatures are 33 degrees celsius
12:11
even though their temperatures are
12:13
milder than delhi’s they have much worse
12:15
moon soon since they are on the coast
12:17
coming from a country where we have
12:18
pretty
12:19
mild weather it’s so hard for me to
12:20
imagine living in a city where the
12:22
temperatures
12:23
almost never drop below 30. um oh wait i
12:26
actually spent months in mumbai and
12:28
i was sweating the whole time it was
12:31
really hot safety generally speaking
12:34
delhi is a safe city for tourists though
12:36
big pocketing is very common in crowded
12:38
places so always be sure to keep
12:40
valuables safe the biggest risks to
12:42
safety are the air pollution
12:43
and the traffic so it’s important to
12:45
wear a face mask on days the pollution
12:47
is toxic and exercise a lot of caution
12:49
when crossing a busy road for women
12:51
though delhi has a bad reputation for
12:53
being
12:53
unsafe it’s advice for women to not go
12:56
out alone at night and to even be very
12:58
cautious when walking around
12:59
quiet streets during the day safety is
13:02
much the same in mumbai for the average
13:04
traveler it is a safe city and has its
13:05
fair share of
13:06
pickpockets however mumbai does have a
13:09
history of terrorism and locals
13:10
encourage each other to be on the
13:12
lookout for
13:13
anything suspicious and to report it to
13:14
the police there are also quite a few
13:16
scams particularly with transportation
13:18
so make sure to do some
13:20
research before a trip women both local
13:22
and foreign also need to exercise
13:24
caution when walking around and taking
13:26
public transportation alone
13:27
especially at night that’s pretty much
13:29
it for today absolutely can’t wait to
13:30
read the comments
13:31
under this video i really hope that my
13:33
