Durg , Chhattisgarh

The city which has the largest steel plant in India known as the Bhilai Steel Plant this is located in the Durg district of Chhatisgarh. It is also 25 km away from Raipur and can safely be called the steel city as it provides all the rails in the country. A very big responsibility to take for a small city with a large steel plant indeed. A place of great multi ethnicity the festivals celebrated here can firmly attest to the fact that this is one highly cosmopolitan city. All major festivals are celebrated in a scale similar to their region of origin. Like the Durga Puja celebrations of Bhilai are in tune with that in Bengal. The same can be said about Maharashtra's Ganesh Chaturthi, Andhra's Ugadi, Tamil Nadu's Pongal, Muslim's Id, Jagganath Puri's Rath Yatra. There is a very high concentration of Sikhs here and their festival is also celebrated with great pomp and show. This is one happy place which likes celebrating at every turn indeed. The best part is that every festival is celebrated by people of every culture and race. That makes Bhilai extra special. One of the places to visit in this very industrial city is the Maitrei Bagh. Right next to it are two huge mad made lakes which is the absolute sustenance of the whole place. This place which literally means garden of friendship was established as a symbol of the India USSR friendship. A very close knit community, Bhilai is the perfect example of a city formed by industrialisation and need but maintained by love and commoradeship. This is a part of a growing , flourishing, tolerant and giving India.
