There have been a spate of articles lately on the need for a new capital. Why does India need a new capital when it has New Delhi? Because Delhi is saturated in every way possible, say its critics. Its woes include over population, pollution, lack of infrastructure, a polluted river and the list goes on. Do we have the resources to build a capital from scratch or should the capital be "moved"? This brings us to a very contentious point. When one goes through a list of cities to move to, one realizes that the urban decay that infects Delhi is a common feature in cities across India. There isn't a major city in the country that hasn't been confronted by the ills of un-planned development and a lack of basic amenities. Is it time for urban planning to take centre stage? Is it time we demand better facilities from our government? For all this and more join us for this week's episode of The Big Fight.
