I am in Jamshedpur (Tatanagar) right now. I am here for the weekend to visit a few friends – particularly one – who just had a ligament surgery. I was fortunate to befreind a few good people form this industrial township during my days at BIT Mesra and visited the place a few times during my student days.
Here are some pictures of the colony where I put up – Nildih .. (Click on the thumbnails to enlarge)
There’s something about the place which makes it serene. It is a beautiful place. Also very peaceful. And it’s great to come to after the hustle-bustle big city life. I’ve been her for only around 24 hours.. and I feel relaxed already! I usually stay in the “Nildih” side of town – Nildih Road, Ravi Road, Golmuri, Dalma Road – basically from what I gather this is the Tata Motors Colony (erstwhile “Telco”). The people are peace-loving and display a leisurely gaite that reflects the mood of the city in general at any time of the day. Jamshedpur is a very relaxed and relaxing place.
I will be heading to the “other” (Tata Steel) part of town to visit a couple of college friends who are working at Tata Steel and stay in apartments in the Tisco clony.
Here’s to some great friends who belong to this lovely town – Love you guys!
