Varanasi can not be blamed, described or commented on. Its a city where whole world started and the place where everyone wants to die. People have made situations worse I agree but still its incomparable to anything. Even God and Goddess are easily not able to get Kashi. Its so deep inside that whatever you know is always just a little bit.

I think Kashi would become best with township planning, It has resources but the planner hasn't idea to dovelop. Varanasi Is my native place & I am living outside to UP. I have been visiting Varanasi to make my retirement living place.During the period of visit I never got people to obey traffic rules, Sometimes i got irritation with terrible traffice, manner of road usere & police personel on duty, I hope in future Varanasi would be a best location to live with modernisation of systems. Har Har Mahade....v, har Har gange...... Jai Varanasi.
