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.
