Vote for love

It's an odd question but asked at the most opportune time of the year — February is after all the Valentine month. Where is India's love capital? Is it Dilwalon ki Dilli or the charming Chandigarh or the mushy Mumbai? Posing this question to everyone on an open, social and online platform is, which has started a dedicated online portal — Describing it as a "movement" to spread some cheer and talk about love in our cities, Kunal Bahl, co-founder and CEO,, explains, "MyLoveCapital is an endeavour to bring back positivity and love for our country, its cities and the people around us. The measure of success in this movement is not which city emerges as the Love Capital of India, but whether it galvanises people to feel more positive about the country we live in. We are hopeful and confident that, in our own small way, we will be able to move the needle."

To vote for one's choice of city, you have to log on to the website and cast the vote. Those with stronger views can additionally upload photographs or videos denoting the city they associate with love the most. Some well-known faces have already shown their support and if Indian tennis icon Sania Mirza has rated Hyderabad as India's love capital for its people and love for food, then Chandigarh's found a voice with actor Ayushmann Khurana. "My love capitals are both Chandigarh and Delhi. I was born and brought up in Chandigarh whereas I have worked in Delhi. Both cities are close to my heart," says Khurana who feels the varied seasons in these two northern cities and the people make it rock as a love capital. The results would be announced a day prior to Valentine's Day, on February 13.
