Not only kanpur but Uttar Pradesh is in news for all the wrong reasons....If we compare the two states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh...Under the leadership of Nitish Kumar ppl are now proud if they are called Bihari...where as people now feel ashamed if they tell they are from UP...Maya Raj is Jungle Raj...
-- rohan on February 8, 2011 at 10:03 ET
Also ISKCON a vibrant spiritual organisation is coming up with a big temple here..many senior devotees of Hare Krishna movement from Pune etc who are also M.Tech etc in education have reached here..today a Jagganath Ratha Yatra has been organised to go around the city by them to purify the hearts of people and help them overcome stressful conditions of life. ISKCON has many programs to help the stressed youth of today...run by highly educated people..thanks to them...hope they would soon spread the peace and happiness throughout the city by distributing love of God among people...

Hi,
I m living in kanpur since from birth. no other city is so friendly (ethically and economically) as kanpur. we can do anything whatever we wanna do no kind of local politics essues like any other city. just see the cynic beauti of kanpur ... mallroad ka morning ka mthha aur bread-butter yummy yaar....... naveen market ki chaat... birhana road ka meetha makhhan... kanpur meri jaan
-- mayank agrawal on January 29, 2011 at 06:53 ET
kanpur is has been detached from the growing indian economy...while most other cities in india are growing our once great kanpur is deteriorating.i mean the state government has just left kanpur on its own,i shudnt say on its own becoz if it ws on its own then it would have been growing significantly but the kanpur gives max tax to the state government than any other city in up bt even a small fraction is nt spent here instead lucknow sucks up all its money and in 10 years it will becum a significant metro in india as tcs ,infosys and wipro are already establishing their offices there.i fear dat we might nt even call knp an industrial city in cuming 10yrs as our city industrialists would shift to greener pastures.i dont blame them bcoz their patience is also running out seeing the government's attitude as of now the economy of knp has already taken a backseat this decade as surat , pune and ahemadabad have already taken over leaving knp at 10th.bt if this attitude continues then if would go even out f top 20 by the end f d just started decade.as most f the upperclass and highly educated people f knp are moving out f the city becoz here v dont have jobs for them like for an iit or an iim graduate....so im just praying dat kanpur from being on the verge of a dying city comes back to life against all odds becoz only our kanpurites can make this happen against the dead motherfucking lucknow biased government f ours.the only magical solution would be that state of up divides and kanpur is made the capital of the new state den im sure kanpur would easily becum one of the best cities in india as i have seen the how dehradun ,ranchi etc have developed after becoming the state capital.dudes just to verify just see the the pic of the new dehradun airport terminal and kanpur dosent has a airport on a daily basis although being 4 times larger than dehradun.

in d end i jus wnna say fuckoff lucknow

Truly agree rajat kanpur is the worst...thanks for the stats
-- Raj on December 5, 2010 at 10:45 ET
Hi...

Pls stop denying the fact that kanpur is among the worst cities of india.

Reasons are

1) It was 7th on survey of most polluted cities.
MSN survey


2)Water crisis

City reeling under acute water crisis [Kanpur]
Times of India, The, Aug 12, 2010

KANPUR: The water crisis in the Industrial City is going from bad to worse.

Kanpur requires 520 mld of water to meet its every day requirements. But it is facing a deficit of nearly 110 mld water.

3) Power Shortage --Do i even need to elaborate

4) Traffic conditions

So let us keep this facts in mind before making statements

I HATE THOSE WHO HATES KANPUR
-- Raghwendra Singh Rana on September 12, 2010 at 05:47 ET
I am living abroad, but badly miss Kanpur where I was born, brought up and educated. I miss my home in Vishnupuri, shopping at Naveen Market, Mall Road, Meston Road, great food at various restaurants. Morning walks at Company Bagh & Agri Univ campus and watching movies in Rave3, Heer Palace. I do not think Kanpur is that bad as people paint it. I have lived in Bangalore and Chennai and they are not too different. And heard that Delhi got sunk in the rains this year. So why to single out Kanpur. However, I believe that the politicians and bureaucrats are responsible for destroying the image of the city. For them UP means the state capital Lucknow.They have no time for other cities of UP.
-- S Shrikanth on August 26, 2010 at 16:42 ET
I left kanpur 18 years back. Now i am not a resident of kanpur. Now i go there as a visitor. City is full of chaos and anarchy. But that's a system failure. Being a kanpuria it our duty to improve the status. There are many more towns much better than kanpur, provided you can throw the money. Meri feeling ek dulhan wahin hai jo ek dulhan ki apne mayke ke liye hoti hogi. Seen a comment from Shri Rohit Mishra. After all we are in
India. U go to kashmir or kerala, local slangs prevail everwhere. Please be positive, Rohit.

In my opinion Kanpur is in the stage of development like roads,electricity etc.But one thing is in the path of success of Kanpur i.e. the Politicians.If they want then Kanpur will be in the top.one thing i want to tell u that Kanpur also is the part of India so please don't compare it with the other cities of India.Kanpur has also the importance like other cities.I think that Kanpur can be made better if we choose better parties in election who will be fulfill all his promises during the elections.I think that Youth has all the power and responsibility to make his city better and better

If we all or atleast the bitch Mayawati stops putting her shit ass hole images and idols around lucknow then something can be done about kanpur.
-- Mohammed on May 25, 2010 at 05:21 ET
few interesting things about kanpur...
Hi friends... this is just my small knowledge about immensity of kanpur...

Educational aspects:

1) IIT - i guess no 1 or 2 in all IIT's in INDIA.
2) HBTI - no 1 engg college in UP.
3) GSVM - no 2 medical college in UP.
4) CSA - no 2 in agriculture university after Pant nagar and has recognision in Asea.
5) NSI - i guess only sugar institute in India.
6) Leather institute - The best insitute in leather technology atleast in india.
7) BEST Coachings - kanpur has best coachings and teachers for civil services, engineering, medical and all competetive exams.

Industrial aspects:

Once kanpur was told MANCHESTER of Asea because of its industries like --
1) LAL IMLI - has been best woolen mill (kab band ho jaaye kanpur waaalo ko b nahi maloom)
2) JK Joot mill - has been best joot mill(saaalo se band hai)
3) ELGIN mill(saalo se purje sad rahe hai )
4) MUER mill(band hai )
5) VICTORIA mill(kab band hui ye to chhodo kb khuli thi aap sab yahi bta do)
6) ATHERTON mill and many others(maione naam hi phli baar suna hai filhaal band hi hogi)

Mythological and Historical aspects:

Kanpur has great Mythological and Historical aspects like --
1) SARSHAIYA GHAT(kooda ghar)
2) DHRUV TILLA(faaltoo ki baat khndahr ban chukla hai )
3) BITHOOR(kuch kuch sahi hai )
4) JK TEMPLE and many other...(dekh lo jam k jab tk hai q k abhi netagiri vha tk pahuchi nahi hai )

apart from this kanpur has biggest ZOO after calcutta in India.......(maan liya bda hai lekin zoo me animals kitne hai aaadhe se jyada to khaaali hai or zooo kam chudaaai khaana jyada)
this is my knowledge.... if I forgot to write something ..... please let me know...

Thanks. lo sab kuch btaa diya

Hi ppl..plz understand v all need to put in an indidvidual efforts to make city the city much much better,its not just sitting bak n criticizng...i knw v all are free express our views as v r born in free india but stil does it make sense dat v all fold ur hands n say "yes i do agree with him/her that kanpur is gud or bad"......but Yes thats very true person who cant respect his/her birth place can never be satisfied in anything wherever he/she is...but again that depends on an individual..nobody can make u feel good abt ur birth place or nobody can change ur views until n unless u feel it urself..just recall wat this city has gven you..obviously there may be sum bad moments also but i think v all knw that "EVERY COIN HAS TWO SIDES"...then let it be kanpur n delhi...newaz guys keep expressing your views....its another way of knwing our city well...
-- Mona Gupta on April 13, 2010 at 18:46 ET
I was brought up and educated in Kanpur,, right now i am working abroad. tell you frankly guys, i love my Kanpur more than myself. Kanpur is a world renowned place. i admit it is not what is used to be before. the Load shedding, closure of industrial units, pollution, sheer politics, unemployment has added to the woes. But still, Kanpur is kanpur and oine cannot deny its presence as a major industrial hub of India and its contrubution towards education. its the new generation which can again do a good of sorts to improve the living conditions of kanpur. first we have to develop a character of the city and stop corruption then only it will be a great city once again..

Its unfortunate for a place like Kanpur that it is located in UP. The state with the worst and most corrupt politicians in the country.

People are great, friendly and loving here. I spent my 23 years in Kanpur and from last 4 years i m living overseas. I miss the place everyday, I miss my loving friends, the lanes, the moments I spent.

No doubt it had a golden history during British rule and for few decades after that but now its getting worst there. Specially the electricity problem which is ruining everything there.

I would urge people to be more responsible and aware to keep their city clean and teach others. However we cant change the fu.. politicians and government employees who administer the city. They all new to be wiped out.

Wish Kanpur will be great always and things will improve. Love Kanpur and my memories and friends there and will come back one day.

OK Kanupr is great ... I say that becasue I was born there, I have family there, I have been there (many times) and I have some fun there.

But does that mean I cannot tell the truth?

I have studied the history of Kanpur and INDIA all my life. Yes it was once the Manchester of India - only becasue the British used its resources and climate to cultivate the cotton industry and ruthlessly exploited its already established cottage industries.

Trust me - brothers and sisters - Kanpur is no longer what it used to be.

The truth is that Kanpur is a very CORRUPT, CORRUPT, CORRUPT City - and all its problems emanate from this curse.

Sort out this menance and the hard-working and passionate people of Kanpur - and indeed INDIA - can once again becone what they used to be ... the richest country in the world.

In case you're wondering ... I now live in Manchester England.

Rohit mishra and rajesh shukla jaise logon ne he kanpur ka nam kharab kiya. kanpur log delhi mumbai aur bangalore se achhe hain, delhi me selfish aur ghamandi log rahte hai jo wakai mein kuchh nahi hain par apne ko bahut hoshiya samajhte hain. Delhi jaisa ganda shahar nahi hai koi. sirf kuchh ek places pe shopping malls aur building hone se shahar achha nahi hota. These are the people who make any city or place beautiful..............

Giving way to industrialization its Kanpur - The industrial hub of Uttar Pradesh, the city of Kanpur is situated on the banks of the river Ganges and has a long tryst with ancient India. Famous for Indian Institute of Technology, the city of Kanpur also attracts tourists for its other attractions such as The Kanpur Memorial Church, Allen Forest Zoo, Shri Radha Krishna temple and the Gautam Buddha Park. The Kamla Retreat is an attraction to the entire city Kanpur, which is also synonymous with leather industry.

The comment made by Null on October 20, 2009 at 14:45 ET regarding one of Kanpur's respectable family is completely baseless. Such allegations are made to malign the family's reputation by person's of vested interests trying to harm all parties.

I would request you to kindly remove that comment from your website as it severely damages the reputation of the concerned parties and also their business establishment.

It also adversely affects the the other party as they are framed for posting such messages although they have no role in it.

You have no provision to report such abuse in your website which is very disappointing. Your email addresses all bounce back.

I hope you will do the needful at the earliest.
