Delhi Voted the Love Capital of India
The national capital today got tagged as the "Most Lovable city of India" in an online campaign which saw voting by noted personalities from Bollywood, sports, theatre and literature.

The city garnered maximum votes in a special Valentine's Day campaign 'My Love Capital' initiated by an online shopping website, snapdeal.com, which handed over a trophy and a collage with photographs of the voters to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit here today.

Voting for the event began on February 4 and the website recorded votes from people across the country. Delhi emerged winner with 53,174 votes followed by Mumbai with 49,010 votes and Srinagar with 29,047 votes from all over India on its website mylovecapital.Com.

"It is a very positive sign for Delhi. This is because, the city is loved by all the people around India," Dikshit said.

"Everybody feels at home here in Delhi," she added.

A total of over 4.5 lakh people participated in the voting. Celebrities like, writer and journalist Khushwant Singh, tennis player Sania Mirza, singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, actor Ayushman Khurana, casting director Dolly Thakore shared their thoughts about their love capital of India and chose their favourite love spot across India.

The celebrities shared their opinion in the videos on the website. Khushwant Singh shared how memories of Delhi were still fresh in his mind, who has lived most of his life in the national capital. While Hyderabad and its hills seemed to have long lasting impact on Sania.

Singer Abijeet said he loved Mumbai most, and Ayushman Khurana confessed that he is confused between Delhi and Chandigarh.

Kunal Bahl, CEO and founder of snapdeal.com said that there is so much of negativity around us and as a corporate social responsibility we can mobilize people around us with the campaigns like this with positivity as a result.

"We were really thrilled with so much of participation of people across the cities and towns of India. I never thought about this much response in the first year of the campaign," said Bahl.

Sheila Dikshit was recently telling that Delhi is the most dangerous place for a woman. How has it become the most loved/lovable city ? Was the online survey by the website open only to rapists/potential rapists ?
