and when you think you are about to leave..
this place literally mesmerizes you enough to want to stay.
This is not the place where I was born, but this is the place where I spent 21 years of my life. The climate, the people, the harmony in which people from different castes and religions live together, is unbelievable.
I have been to many cities across India, and trust me you won’t be able to find such a city. It is in fact a complete package. A city that has some of the best malls, education institutes, infrastructure, healthcare etc, but still takes pride in boasting about its rich heritage and the dirt cheap yet heavenly food (specially for chicken lovers).
How this city emerged from this:
(Gas Tragedy, 1984)
to this:
is commendable.
Welcome to the City of Lakes.
My City.
