Excellent pics dude

Im glad that they have got the BRTS up and running even if the bus stands arent completely finished, the sooner ppl give the system a go the sooner it will become a part of Rajkot life like it has in Ahmedabad.

Looking forward to more shots of the city! Take as many as you can, Rajkot really deserves to be showcased better!!

Excellent updates! Rajpath looks very good...at par with Janmarg. Now we're waiting for Surat's Siti-link and Vadodara's unnamed BRT system...

As GJ10 says...do take as many pics as you can, especially of the newly developing areas. We get them so rarely...

I have captured some whenever I remembered, however most of them were captured while driving, so apologies for the quality of pic.. still I thought to upload some rather than none..

Starting with real estate....

Was just shocked/surprised to see how many high rises are coming up in Rajkot..

PS: High rise in Rajkot means 11-12 floors... but I presume if govt. allows to build more floors, builders would simply zoom it to available permission...

Apologies for the quality, but as said earlier all were taken while driving... I have few hundreds more but the quality of them is just not good, so have just picked up some of them which are presentable..

Very nice picture update, Mr. Kotak, a couple pictures bring back memories of my Rajkot visit but places are hard to recognize in most other pictures.

India will turn into a super power quicker than we think if controls are lifted. Unfortunately liberalization is a slow process in India where controls are deeply rooted in class, caste and hierarchy based society and culture.

Thanks Sunil. Second set of pictures to follow soon.. Yeah I second you.. govt. laws are holding us for most of the things...

Even I was truly surprised to see the number of luxury cars in Rajkot.. Few years ago there were only 2-3 Mercedes in Rajkot... but now the scenario has fully changed... In my visit I have seen atleast dozens of all big cars.... mercz, bmw, etc and couple of porsches, jaguar and others...

I presume this will be the case in most other big cities of Gujarat (as well as India).... Gujarat (and whole of India) is booming now... time to go back to root... people are earning more there compared to UK, US..
