but those bad city buses spoil everything. both Indore and Bhopal got their own transport companies a the same time. but, while Indore transport company is thriving, Bhopal had to pull off the buses from its roads. don't know why. My cousins tell me that it just didn't work there!

MP04, why don't you provideus the photos of places like the hillside besides the lake where the houses and buildings looks very nice and some photos of areas around cm's bungalow, city park, and other sarkari buildings.birla mandir and Assembly. they would make others from the forum know what cities in M.P are like!

I have not yet visited MP but I like to see mid sized cities such as Bhopal and Indore blossom into mini-metros. So, based on the discussions here, Bhopal is greener, cleaner and has better infrastructure (like Delhi vs Mumbai) whereas Indore is more prosperous, business-oriented, lively, and cosmo/metropolitan, correct?

What is meant exactly by the comment "bhopal people really need to change the way they live"? Is it that Bhopal is not modern enough? I can see Indore being more modern but is Bhopal really that far behind - may be Bhopal today is what Indore was a few years ago, which isn't that bad!! After all, most cities with numbers of government employees won't feel the same as cities with a huge business community!

Let me know if I'm right.....
life is very peaceful in Bhopal. i think it is like a pensioner's paradise. a little slow city which goes to sleep at around 9-10 o clock.it is like a big hill station. I guess mini bangalore. In Indore, you will find crowded places, people bustling to go somewhere, more traffic, more activity and a relatively mixed culture (though not as diverse as other metros). you can get things to eat even at night people usually roam around the streets carefree at night till 2-3. (although after terror threat and all police crakdown has discouraged this a lot)
some relatively small software companies like impetus is in Indore. you have Mphasis and retail outlets of almost every brand here (not exotic ones, but). pharma and automobile mfg, transportation and aviation hub of M.P. Indore is the financial capital.

anshul

well currently i m not in bhopal ... so will not be able to take the photos ...if i go there i will definately take the photos ... esp. of the picturesque shahpura lake and surrounding colonies , mansions , villas etc because that place is a hot spot nowadays

regarding city buses , they r no less than gutter services ... i have never seen such worst city buses (so called mini buses) in any city of india ... star buses were introduced but they failed because of lack of planning and also these buses were frequently attacked by mini bus walas ...
but the good thing is 225 new buses ( ac and non ac ) high quality buses will be plying soon in bhopal under the central governments jnnurm scheme and that will run on BRTS corrider being constructed and also on other roads ... but i m not sure whether government will phase out the mini buses

I know well Bhopal and Bangalore. Bangalore is well laid out better than any other metro.

As far as Bhopalis are concerned they are enjoy life better than most others and are happy goers .. kind of me no worry.. me no care. Some donot like this attitude.

About development - National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) and Future Capital Research has identified Bhopal as boomtown with likes of Coimbatore, Surat , Jaipur and others

About Realty and purchasing power - According to Times Of India DATED 27Feb'10
" ...however the best story comes from Tier 2 cities. Most of these cities, growing fast on the back of local demand and as feeders to larger cities, clocked some of the highest gains. Cities like Bhopal, Faridabad and Ahmedabad showed jumps of 39%, 36% and 27% respectively. With growth in India getting more inclusive and drawing in regions beyond the big metros, these cities exhibit Bharat’s growing purchasing power..."

Pune and Hyd seem to have surprisingly low household incomes as compared to other big cities.
