Jharkhand

On the eastern side of Peninsular India lies the state of Jharkhand, one of the most beautiful regions of the Chotanagpur plateau. The landscape is undulating with many hills, belts of Sal forests and abundant “Palas” trees which burst into fiery red blossoms in summer. Jharkhand offers many aspects of tourism that can be chosen according to one’s interests. Ecotourism is on offer for those who wish to get intimate with nature at Betla National Park, Hazaribagh National Park and Palamu Sanctuary. Be it boating in Dimna Lake and Ranchi Lake, enjoying nature’s beauty around Tilaiya Dam, marvelling at the architecture of Betla Fort (Tribal Fortress) and Teliagarhi Fort or visiting Tribal villages, you can take your pick. Adventure tourism in this state includes Parasailing, Water Sports and Hot air Balloon show in Giridih and Rock climbing, Rappelling and River Crossing at Khandoli Hill.
As in most parts of India, Religious tourism is an important aspect in Jharkhand where some of the places of pilgrimage are Parasnath Hills, Deoghar, Sitagarha Hill, Rajrappa, Pahari Mandir, Jagannath Temple and Sun Temple.
The beauty of Jharkhand is best experienced in the months from October to March. The state has a good road network and major cities are connected by railways. Ranchi, the capital is the only city with an airport. The climate is sub tropical with hot summers and cold winters. Hindi is the state language but a variety of languages are spoken all over Jharkhand including Bengali, Maithili, Sadri, Oraon and Mundari.

I went to check whether they washed the car or not, as promised yesterday. The outer body of the car looks like we just finished, sorry ‘Won’ the cross-country rally…several layers of dust all around the body and required a considerable amount of time and efforts to bring it back to its’ original colour. The security guard was of immense help and cleaned the car within next half an hour.
