The map of India on this page is wrong. It cuts out parts of J&K from India.

I agree with DP Singh's statement that Prayad Raj (Alld.) has become a backwater.I blame JL Nehru & his clan for doing sod all for our town.Successive state Govts. also ignored our city.PR was in the forefront of Indian Independence, unlike decadent Lucknow.We produced India's top freedom fighter Chandra Shekhar Azad. LKO produced decadent Nawabs, who licked the boots of the British rulers.

What to say about allahabad........it was one of the gloriest place of India......but unfortunatey it was...now it is one of the most backward places of India......... its really unfortunate to say that the Teerthraj has lost its reputation..........I love Allahabad most of any other city but I dont want to live in Allahabad as their is nothing for me and my future.......no Roads, no Infrastructure, no cleanliness, no jobs, no industry nothing which can attract me to came back to my Home City........how unfortunate.

What do my fellow, current & ex-residents of our great city of Prayag Raj (Alld.) think of starting a movement to get the politicians of all persuasions, to change the name of Allahabad ( It's a mouthful, is it not?)to Sangam city's original name of Prayag Raj?
-- Hriday on May 21, 2011 at 17:26 ET
My heart resides in Allahabad and always will. Last week during my stay in Allahabad in Holi I felt very sad after seeing the deterioration of the city. I don't know much about politics but for the shabby state of allahabad I am sure they are responsible. Peoples are erecting statutes, making parks in memory but I was told that the cleaning staff of Municipality is not being paid that is why the basic cleaning and garbage disposal is not taking place. Forget about any new development, nobody wants that it would be good if we are able to maintain what we have.

I request DM ALD to please look in this matter and get the issues resolved and bring back the lost glory and shine of Allahabad.

@Sandeep and Hriday
Why not file a petition for taking allahabad out of purvanchal eco zone ( A creation of mayawati).
lets work to retain our identity .If wel love our Allahabad then its our duty to safeguard its culture and identity which Amar singh and mayawati are hell bent to make purvanchali.
...Also Allahabad should get its due respect through all round development...IT ,Tourism...food processing Industries..etc....pls go Ahead..

I LIKE ALLHABAD BECAUSE THEIR ARE PEOPLE HO ACTUALLY LOVE EACH OTHER
-- NIKHIL KUMAR SHUKLA on January 2, 2011 at 03:43 ET
Prayag Raj (ALLD ) has been neglected by successive state & Central Govts.Today it has become a backwater city.None of the 5 Prime Ministers & MPs, except Dr MM Joshi, did anything for Alld.Shmane on the lot of them.
The Alld.-Lko-Alld. train service must be the worst train service in India. The few trains betweeen these 2 cities are filthy & invariably late.
Fatso Amar Singh wants Alld. to be part of Poorvanchal, with no doubt him being the CM, supported by his cronies in his cabinet.Well,Mota Amar Singh must be made to realise that the culture & Hindi dialect of Alld. is not that of eastern UP.We in Alld. do not sing while speaking.

Allahabad is the best place i have ever seen. As here is every thing you expect for any city in the World not only in India, to be noted. Here is the birth place of 1st Prime Minister any many more Prime Ministers, many Legends in Politics. It is the IAS Factory of India, It has the record of Holding the biggest Fare of the World (Last Attendance in the MahaKumbh Mela was 3 crore in single Day that was on 14th January ).Many more things to write,to be mentioned after some time
-- Parijat Singh on December 1, 2010 at 09:30 ET
its the best. from my heart peace and soul
-- abhishek on October 25, 2010 at 13:46 ET
Ashok Tiwari,Anil & 'Dosomething'are plonkers. The cretins make rude remarks about my home town-Prayag Raj (Alld.).Which dump do they come from?
There has been huge influx of Biharis & East UP people into Alld., bringing the tone down , but it is still the least congested major UP city.The population of Alld. are most literate too.We have been in the forefront of India's freedom struggle. Remember Chandra Shekhar Azad ?
I live in the UK, but to me the best place on this earth is dear old Alld.

Allahabad, it is the such name that even sinner or liar will be honest for a single moment while uttering its pronounciation. I think most of allahabadies r honest and very friendly,loving n cooperative, if u treat well with them, they will do 100% everything for u. If u donot believe, try it and reply me, u r always welcome, via on anup.kakara@yahoo.com.

Illahabadis are unique in their love for their home town.If dodgy UP politicians eg Amar Singh,Mayawati etc succeed (God forbid)in creating Poorvanchal,we Illahabadis must make sure that we are not included in Poorvanchal.The local 'Boli' & culture is close to central UP eg Lucknow & Kanpur, not Varanasi,Azamgarh etc.Thank God for that!

Woh Civil Lines ka sama, woh Chowk ki chaat,
Woh Shanti ki Kulfi, Wah usme thi kuch baat.
Woh Kamdhenu ki mithai, woh Loknath ki Rabri,
Woh Spicy Bite ka non-veg….

Woh rikshaw ka saffer, woh Company baag ki hawa,
Woh Katra ki raunak aur rangeen sama.
Woh January ki kadake ki sardi, woh baarishon ke mahiney,
Woh garmi ki chuttiyan, jab chute te they paseeney.
Woh holi ki masti, woh doston ki toli,
Woh diwali ke patakhe aur janmashtmi ki roli
Woh Zamghat ki patange aur woh kabootar Bazi ka khel,
Woh ghar ki chat pe Cricket aur colony ke ladkon ka chaurahe pe mail.
WohKalyani devi ka mahol, woh Ganga ki leheren,
Woh BoatClub ka nazara, Wah uske kya kehene.
Woh Chowk ki galiyan,
Woh Chandrlok ki balcony aur woh Sulaki ki pooriyan
Woh Hotstuff ka Chinese,woh Elchico ka style
Woh Friends pe Coffee jahan hum karte thei smile.

Woh school ki life aur woh College ki Zindagi,
Woh College ka rasta aur woh Canteen ki patties
Humne bhi bas dekhe hi the wo saare khel.

-- Tanweer Ahmad on July 20, 2009 at 10:09 ET
Every place big or small has its own importance.But Allah abad or Prayag Raj as it is called got its name because of its natural formation, being on the confluence of Ganga & Yamuna a creation of The Almighty.
We are lucky to have the Blessings of The Almighty GOD,
But since we are going away from the Almighty we feel the change in people too.We have to protect Ganga and the rich culture of Allahabad.
Be proud to be a Allahabadi.
