AMARAVATHI

UNIQUENESS

'Amaravathi' projects on the mental screen the celestial capital of Devendra, and as the spool rolls, we witness a series of sublime soul-lifting sights moving in quick succession, like the extensive evergreen sprawling Nandanavana, smiling with multi-coloured flowers, busy anointing the graceful cool breeze with a unique aroma to enveloping the entire celestial region; the boon - raining Kalpadruva at its centre; the wish - yielding Kamadhenu nibbling at the tender green luscious grass, on the sumptuously grown lawns, interspersed with long avenues of neat, broad pathways, cut by regular criss-crossed foot paths leading to pools of light ,fenced with gold bars for bathing, lying adjacent to the majestic Mandakani, moving with gurgling delight, almost touching the palatial mansions, reverberating with ecstatic rejoicing over cups of Amrit, emptied one after another by the all-contented care-free immortals.... despite this and much more, alas! it is found bereft of stately built, magnificently sculptured and multi-tired imposing towers of spacious places of worship ringing with devotional songs sung in chorus by god-intoxicated to the accompaniment of instrumentalists playing oblivious of surroundings and time sense. As if to compensate and stand superior to this, there lies here in this Punya Bharat a city with a remarkable difference, over packed to its bounds with marvels of infinite variety, yet bearing the same name of Amaravathi in the state of Andhra Pradesh, heading the list of States of the Indian Union.
