Meerut is a small city to the north west of New Delhi. Its claim to fame lies in the fact that the famous chant of "chalo Dilli" (Move to Delhi) was taken up first from here during the Great Uprising of 1857 against the East India Company.

Currently it might be the biggest cantonment in India as it holds a strategic advantage of being close to the national capital, New Delhi.
