Been born and brought up in Raipur, I have immense love and attachment towards the city, just like other Raipurians.

Raipur may not be alot of things but what it is, is a place as close to seventh heaven for the young and the restless in our country. What raipur offers is a unique recipe made to live life the way one wants to, whether it is to watch a movie at PVR or to enjoy a coffee with a loved one at CCD or to enjoy a silent walk across the so called ‘Marine Drive’! Here are 12 awesome things that make Raipur a wonderful place to be in :

1. Naya Raipur :

The roads are huge and smooth to drive on, and not to forget, it is the photo studio for almost 80% of the youngsters in city 😉
