The Green and Beautiful Side of Raipur!!

Raipur is a developing city and the capital of Chhattisgarh and as is with every developing city, this one too faces some challenges. One of the outcomes of this development is the cloud of dust that seems to surround this city everywhere.

At first instance, I felt I had entered into a dust bowl, but as I started exploring the city, I found some splendid green pastures.

Just a short distance away from the heart of the city is ‘Gaurav Path’ and this stretch looks clean, green and beautiful. The roads are wide and there is hardly any pollution in the air. The sidewalks have well mowed green lawns and trees.

The best part are the beautiful sculptures, carvings and paintings on the walls of ‘Gaurav Path’. Everything has been tastefully done and the local municipal corporation are playing their part very well to help keep this place an environment friendly zone.

I just hope other developing cities in India are doing their bit to preserve the environment.
