Nature has been rather unkind to the city of Nagpur! Nagpur cannot boast of majestic snow-peaked mountains gleaming against the azure blue sky, not does it have an exuberant seascape with tempting beach resorts. Well, even the history has been partial to Nagpur. Nagpur, in its heyday, was a capital of Bhosle’s Maratha Empire, and this is its only historical solace. How many of you know that Nagpur is the actual geographical center of India, proudly adorning the “Zero Mile Pole”? Despite its notoriety of heat, Nagpur is the Third Green City of the India. Incredible, isn’t it? The region around Nagpur, known as “Vidarbha”, is known for its antiquity, traditional hospitality, and the warmth of its people.
Just like mammoth gatherings, such as “Kumbh Mela”, symbolize devotion and add a new dimension to the place, similarly, dear friend, I solicit your esteemed presence in Nagpur with the same devotion. Come, add a new page to the scanty history of Nagpur. Your presence alone can create history hitherto denied to Nagpur, the geographical center of India!
With warm personal regards
Dr. Madan Kapre
