Ludhiana

Ludhiana , Punjab

Ludhiana is all about the Punjabi ness in our culture. Each and every one of us have some of that over the top, larger than life side to us and we will thus all identify to a certain extent with the city. And of course marvel at the beautiful Mercedes and BMWs that grace the roads of the city, a rare sight even in the metros. A place that is very green and very proud of it, Ludhiana is one of the places which is very prosperous due to agriculture. The crop harvesting season sees the most activity in this land and you can see people from all over flocking to this place during this time. Ludhiana celebrates the Punjabi culture and the essence of this city is very exuberant. There can not be a moment of sadness while you are here. This is the place which was the centre of the Lodi dynasty who ruled the throne of Delhi till the Mughals took over. Then came a series of power struggle until Sikhism took hold of the entire land. It was very well consolidated here and Ludhiana is the one place that follows this religion quite ardently. Thus you will find many beautiful Gurudwaras dotting this place and the sight is quite a beautiful one, couple wtih the greenery of the entire city. A city that has been ranked for having the best business environment, this is a place that is dominated by small scale industries and these are all very prosperous ones. In fact the entire city will make you realise that it is a very prosperous place to be in. A combinations of the old and the new, of the big malls and the winding street markets, of the posh cars and the traditional values interred in the people here, Ludhiana is a delightful city to be in.

  • Deer Park


    "In medieval and Early Modern England, a deer park was an enclosed area containing deer. It was bounded by a ditch and bank with a wooden park pale on top of the bank. The ditch was typically on the inside.[1] Some parks had deer leeps, where there was an external ramp and the inner ditch was constructed on a grander scale, thus allowing deer to enter the park but preventing them from leaving.[2].Some deer parks were established in the Anglo-Saxon era and are mentioned in Anglo-Saxon Charters; these were often called hays.[3]\nAfter the Norman conquest of England in 1066 William the Conqueror seized existing game reserves. Deer parks flourished and prolifereated under the Normans, forming a forerunner of the deer parks that became popular among England's landed gentry. The Domesday Book of 1086 records 36 of them.\nInitially the Norman kings maintained an exclusive right to keep and hunt deer and established forest law for this purpose.[4] In due course they also allowed members of the nobility and senior clergy to maintain deer parks. At their peak at the turn of the 14th century, deer parks may have covered 2% of the land area of England.[5]\nJames I was an enthusiast for hunting but it became less fashionable and popular after the Civil War. The number of deer parks then declined, contemporary books document other more profitable uses for such an estate.[6] During the 18th century many deer parks were landscaped, where deer then became optional within larger country parks several of which created or enlarged from wealth from trade and colonisation in the British Empire, while later mostly giving way to profitable agriculture dependent on crop prices, a workforce attracted elsewhere following increasing industrialization. This created pressure to sell off parts or divide such estates while rural population growth pushed up poor law rates (particularly outdoor relief and the Labour Rate) and urban poverty led to the introduction of lump sum capital taxation such as Inheritance Tax and a shift in power away from the aristocracy.[7]\nDeer parks are notable landscape features in their own right. However, where they have survived into the 20th century, the lack of ploughing or development has often preserved other features within the park,[8] including barrows (tumuli), roman roads and abandoned villages."
