Allahabad: City Of True Beauty, Real Romance And Mysticism (Photo Feature Part 2)

Many find Allahabad a very tough place to live an honourable life. That’s because  even though it came to enjoy a wonderful divine legacy, it never  ensured  a desired vibrancy for average souls. It never created any scope for living a truly fun-filled life, being all the time involved in dry intellectual activities.  Lack of  proper encouragement on the part of city towards its vast pool of talented brains have now given way to brain drain sort of affair. Many great souls remained an unsung hero in this city. However, what’s amazing is that it keeps on producing great souls at a regular interval! In nutshell, it’s a city of true beauty, real romance and mysticism. The city teaches you how to remain true to life in a real way, making it very clear to any conscious soul that life is not a bed of roses and it is meant to discover new mysteries of nature. Naturally, average souls running after money, fame, beautiful girl, big house, big car and many other cosmetic affairs would always feel disappointed to be part of this city. Having said that, I hope this city learns to truly honour its exceptional souls and also learns to be bit more blissful!  

 

That's one of the major Lord Hanuman Ji's  temple situated in the heart of the city.. Anyway, it's so ironic to see love birds engaged in romantic talks at this place  :P

Hard To Forget This Guy...During university days, I came to buy so many  greta classics, costly magazines at very reasonable rates..And this person made way for all sorts of desired adjustment.  He proudly told me that someone from Times of India also came to click image of  his magazine corner...This shop is hot favourite among  students!  Although Internet has affected the sales.

Company Garden has the honour of having this wonderful  Government Public Library.  This majestic building built in Gothic style was designed by R. Roskell Bayne.  This building is of immense significance since here only Legislative Council for the North Western Province and Oudh held its first meeting on January 8, 1887.  Let's not forget it was capital city from of United Provinces from 1902 to 1920! Anyway, I am happy that in my college days and even now I am the most frequent visitor!

Palace Theatre enjoys a great place in the memories of all good cinema lovers. It's one of the oldest theaters in the city. However, it's old charm has given way to this new modern appearance ! My choice also witnessed drastic changes  from "Thodi Se Bewafai" (1980) to " Ship of Thesus" (2012)  at this Palace :P :P :P

However, this historic cinema hall in old Allahbad, Niranjan, failed to start again.  This hall needs to be rennovated at the earliest.  Two prominet movies which I came to see when they got realeasd were Richard Attenborough's Gandhi(1982) and Steven Spielber's Jurassic Park (1993).

Public Service Commission - an office where my father worked as an officer. And we lived in the residence situated on the huge campus of this office. Later, we shifted to Lucknow branch of the same office! Allahabad is city devoted to prominent government offices in Uttar Pradesh. Civil Lines area is mainly occupied by such government institutions.

Nearly all newspapers have their offices in Civil Lines area. However, Northern India Patrika's  office holds a special place in my heart.  This is one of the oldest newspapers in India which started in year 1868. It was then named Amrita Bazar Patrika.  Today, all good news editors and journalists are by-products of this newspaper.  Today it's not that financially successful but editors like V.S. Datta have kept its standards high.  V.S Datta, seniormost jourmalist from Allahabad, is its editor since early 60s. And when my first article appeared in print in this newspaper he was the one responsible for its publication. I owe a lot to him for all my accomplishments to him as a writer/journalist. May Lord give him long life and good health!

    It’s an exhausting work..Also a difficult art since it requires a different approach…However, in the end, when final result appears in the form of presentation of post, followed by views of admirers/critics, it’s really heart-warming feeling!!

    Well, I really did a lot of hard work in first getting the right shades, and, second, then to have fitting research to go along with the picture..Happy that a “pucca” Allahabadi is consciously tracing the photo feature..Therefore, I love to inform you that part 3 of this photo series related with Allahabad would appear soon. You can sense well that many important places have yet not found place in this series..By the way, do inform Ashish that his school found space in my series🙂

  4. Arvind ji, amazing mini-trip to the Hindu India that I have only heard of. I came to learn so many things which I never knew about Prayag.

    Wonder what makes your Prayag (comparatively) so much cleaner and orderly than let’s say other Indian cities?

    Thank you soo much for this photo essay Arvind ji.
    My soul needed it.

    1. @ Sucehta ji…

      Happy that it made you filled with bliss when world around us is so full of everything opposed to smile! That’s why I feel really fortunate to be part of this city- definitely some good karma in past made that possible.

      This part two comprised of images belonging to area dominated by elite class and high-profile government offices.. That’s one of the reasons why roads, as well as the whole area, looked so clean! Allahabad is luckier in a sense that it has widest streets in whole Uttar Pradesh. Besides it only Lucknow and Noida (which should be now called suburb of New Delhi) can boast of having such wide streets. And if I use horrible contrast borrowed from lexicology of minister hailing from Samajwadi Party, the streets are indeed more smooth than cheeks of any Bollywood babe! ( Read this news item: http://www.telegraphindia.com/1130415/jsp/nation/story_16786939.jsp#.U0bBb6LbefY )

      This city continues to produce gems in various spheres of life..And I am sure this would be the case in future as well..Long live this city, its people and everything associated with it…Its part 3 would be published soon..Do not miss to have glimpse of other beautiful aspects associated with it…..

  5. Beautiful…pics and journey of Allahbaad….!

    1. @ Ravi Hooda ji…

      So glad to receive your maiden comment on original page😛 …This city truly demonstrates unique attributes…It is absolutely grounded in reality..And if one is truly conscious one can intercept divine aura as well… And Ravi ji, you can call it a journey since photo feature made me travel to forgotten corners of Allahabad but the fact is I belong to this city- it’s my birthplace😛 ..I live here😛

      Anyway, thanks for sending positive waves from Canada🙂

  8. Prasanjit Saha, Pune, Maharashtra, said:

    Arvindji Thanks. I am a fan of your writing and undoubtedly, you are a great writer. Another thing is that I have a geat attraction for the majestic Ganges. She attracts me like anyting more so, because I get only one or two chances in a year to visit Ganges. To see you enjoying these places makes me happy and it brings back the sweet memories of my trips to the Ganges when I visit Kolkatta.

    *************
    Author’s Response:

    That’s because Ganges constitutes the essence of any true Indian…If time allows you to pay a visit to Allahabad, then please come. I would also let you see Ganges at my village…If you come during winters, it would be better since landscape during that period looks better! Thanks for such a generous take on my writing ability🙂 I owe it to the legacy of Allahabad, which saw so many great writers in the past!!

  9. Prasanjit Saha, Pune, Maharashtra, said:

    Thanks Arvindji, for the kind invitation. I am more than eager to see the Ganges flowing through your village. I believe the Ganges looks more beautiful and attractive when she passes through villages. Her presence transforms the landscape and you can feel the heavenly beauty all around. I will try to come. Thanks once again.

    I look forward to your visit..And yes, you are correct that in villages one comes to see real beauty of Ganges…

Anyway, I hope all is okay with you and your family including cute daughter of yours.. Just wish to inform that this picture of mine forms the part of photo feature on Allahabad.

  16. Hello Arvind, I found your blog really interesting. I loved the intro that you wrote in blue. I think with “Indowaves” you have presented a really intelligent blog that shows up your personality. It is very different from other travel blogs. Good work, keep it up.

    1. @ Sunita..

      Glad that you find my blog interesting🙂 Your words are not far away from truth!! I like to keep the difference minimum between what I express in external world and the way I think within! I am not saying that within I am absolutely the same the way I have manifested my persona outside but at least I try that difference remains negligible! And, above all, I always believe that written words fail to impress if you are not honest enough to present your emotions as it is….Anyway do find time to look at many other posts including photo features (especially photo feature on mysterious Vindhya region).. I am sure you will appreciate them a lot… Hope to see you often on my page🙂 Take Care..
