Nagpur - the Orange city
"The Orange City wakes up"
So called because oranges (mandarines) are produced in very large numbers around Nagpur. The best are exported and the local market is flooded with the fruit in season.
Nagpur is right in the centre of India, well connected by air and train from all major cities in India.
"Vidharba Cricket Association Ground"
Recently 'refurbished', this magnifient ground was recently in the news when Australia beat India at this ground to clinch the series after a gap of 30 years.
Cricket to Indians is what football is to Europeans or baseball is to the Americans. It is played in every possible place one can think of !
One of the oldest lakes on the outskirts of Nagpur, has recently been 'beautified' so as to be used by public. There are various activities - rowing, water sports conducted, light shows and lots of hawkers line the street from dusk when the lights are turned on.
