My Town - Part 1

Some photos of my hometown.....This is the Rail Chowk (where four roads meet). The monument depicts a long railway track surrounding the Earth.

The most famous verse from the Bhagvad Gita (a holy book of Hindus) and the one I remember most clearly (credit goes to The Mahabharata serial on tv) comes to my mind whenever I see the famous picture of Lord Krishna as the charioteer and Arjun in the seat during the battle of Kurukshetra.

Yada yada hi dharmasya
Glanir bhavati bharata

And a rise of unrighteousness

vinasaya ca duskrtam
