When I was in Poona a few months back I stayed with my family in an apartment in a building called Cosmos in Magarpatta City. This is a new township with well maintained roads, excellent security system,neat foot paths, benches to sit,specific places for shops, a lovely garden, excellent waste disposal system and no beggars.
When I took the photo of the main gate I had a problem with the security. You will see a security guard in the photo below. He walked briskly to me and told me to remove the photo. I pretended to remove the photo and told him that the photo has been deleted. He was satisfied and walked back. But I actually did not delete the photo.
I live in a congested town in terms of buildings,shops,vehicles and people and people all over the place. In the rainy season the roads get damaged and there are pot holes in all the main roads.The bus drivers and motor cycle riders are reckless and scarcely obey traffic rules. Police will look the other way instead of disciplining the erring drivers.The noise pollution and smoke pollution is quite high. The waste disposal arrangement are not good. The foot paths are not fit for people to walk and it would be better to walk on the road and of course one has to be careful. Public conveniences and bus shelters are few.There is no gap between towns and villages. There are houses and people everywhere. But the city throbs with life. We have a wonderful natural harbor and back waters, lovely parks and music walk ways.many places of tourist interest.We grow pepper, ginger, cardamom and other spices apart from tea in our hilly regions.The entire state remains green all through the year on account of the heavy down pour during the monsoon.
I wonder how your place compares with my town.
