The Futala Lake
On May 17th we visited Nagpur’s Futala Lake. Here I find myself at a loss of words. I would rather let the pictures do the talking…
On one side is the serene lake, calm and quiet. On the other side it’s abuzz with people. Fast food joins and restaurants are stationed opposite to the lake.
The lake at sundown is a feast for the eyes. Several ladies sit with their baskets full of ‘ber’. Other vendors also try their best to lure in customers. It’s colorful fountains create their own magic as passersby look on.
If you ever do visit Nagpur, Futala Lake should absolutely not be missed. It’s as if the noise and the traffic on the road together with the silence of the lake weave an invisible cloak in the air that engulfes you and overwhelmes you from within.
