Even in UP, Ghaziabad is a part of Delhi. In fact, it is in the ambit of the NCR. So naturally, this is the gateway of UP. Literally, it gets the best of both worlds (in this context, stated). Cities placed in such a way that they occupy two states, always have an edge over other areas, cities and towns. You are the best example of Gurgaon before you. Gurgaon is actually in Haryana but a part of Delhi and is now the address of India’s most elite and top bread. The same luck has befallen Ghaziabad, which is expanding exponentially and though basically an industrial hub, Ghaziabad is now one of the most sought after locations in NCR.
Ghaziabad finds that it was mentioned in the dispatches of the Revolt in 1857 because there was a fierce clash between the Indian sepoy rebels and British forces on the banks of the Hindon river. General Hugh Rose, the man who defeated the sepoy Indian rebels and admired the bravery of the Queen of Jhansi Rani Lakshmibai, mentioned the clashes that took place in Ghaziabad. Of all fourteen shipments to London, General Hugh Rose wrote about Ghaziabad next to Meerut and Bithur (near Kanpur), the centers of the Revolution. Military shipments of that period can be seen at Fort William, Calcutta and India House, London.
Despite the proliferation of industries in Ghaziabad, it is a place liked and loved not only by the Delhites, but by all. It is the second fastest growing city in the world. The reason is that Delhi has reached a saturation point. Now these extensions like Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Noida, Sahibabad, Palwal etc. Gets more attention and their importance increases day by day. NCR is a seamless expansion and you will never know where Delhi’s border ends and the limits of its satellite cities begin. Everything was one and went under one roof. In a way, it has proven to be a blessing and a blessing in Delhi. Its area has increased and the (population) cargo has gradually decreased, otherwise.
A German architect decided in 2015 that there will be two of India’s best and most independent cities by 2020. The cities will be Gurgaon and Ghaziabad, which are already two of the most popular uber-cities. It’s a shoo-in that over the next 2 years, both areas can handle the stratosphere of progress and modern amenities of all kinds.
I first visited Ghaziabad in 1995 and again in 2017. The city has undergone a sea change. For 22 years, Ghaziabad has leaped from a sleepy city to a buzzing metro. Now, I plan to visit it again on my upcoming visit to the Capital in April, 2018. Ghaziabad is now a throbbing place to cool off. It also has greenery to welcome you.
The Metro, which is a real boon to the Delhites, will go to Ghaziabad (Pin Code 201001) and even more, making it easier to access.
Delhi now boasts formidable location expansions like Ghaziabad, Noida and Gurgaon that have the potential to grow even further.
Apropos, Kumar Vishwas (poet-politician: A strange combination!), Lara Dutta (Miss Universe, 2000 and Bollywood actress) and cricketer Suresh Raina are among Ghaziabad.
