Vidarbha - Hidden Treasure

Hi Folks,

This thread is going to capture all the hidden treasure and neglected sites of Vidarbha region. Apart from Tiger country, Vidarbha is abundant with natural resources as well as scenic beauty. If proper steps had been taken by state govt, things would have been different today and this part of state could have also appeared as tourist spot. Not an issue, we as a team, bring those information to the knowledge of world so that automatically things get improved.

Best luck!!!

State govt. should plan properly and develop tourism in this area to tackle down the naxalism. As people start visiting these places automatically that may create good opportunities for tribal people.

Playwright Gadkari's home still in a shambles
Vaibhav Ganjapure, TNN | Aug 31, 2012, 01.25AM IST

NAGPUR: Seven months after TOI expose on how home of Ram Ganesh Gadkari, also called Shakespeare of Marathi literature, in Saoner was lying neglected, the situation has hardly changed. Director of Mumbai-based State Archaeology and Museums Directorate Sanjay Patil had even paid a visit to the place and announced that the government would convert it into a "national monument".

However, except some cosmetic changes in the 150-year-old structure, the Archeology Directorate branch in the city did nothing to maintain the historic structure where the noted litterateur breathed his last on January 23, 1919, due to TB. The condition of auditorium-cum-amphitheatre built at the site is actually worse than before.

After TOI report, the department had cleaned the filth accumulated in the 150-year-old home and also applied anti-termite paint to prevent the wood from decaying. The department officials also made efforts to preserve the historic photographs of Gadkari with other literary giants including Pandit Dinanath Mangeshkar and Bal Gandharva who frequently used to visit the memorial located on the bank of Kolar River. However, they did nothing about roof tiles that are on the verge of falling down. The person assigned the job of looking after the place doesn't know anything about Gadkari.

Many historic pictures were dumped behind closed doors. The third floor of the house has been turned into a dumping yard with all waste material kept there. The wooden pillars on which the structure stands continue to be in a bad shape. There is no round the clock security, thus putting precious pictures and belongings to risk.

The nearby auditorium-cum-amphitheatre was once a hub for literary and cultural events. Developed over sprawling area of over 10 acres with an expenditure running into crores, it was inaugurated by then chief minister Sharad Pawar on December 11, 1988, in presence of ministers Datta Meghe and Ranjit Deshmukh. Beautiful landscaping and even rooms were built for the performing artists coming from outside the town.

Two and half decades later, the entire area located in the heart of the town, is a picture of gross neglect. The remains of iron gates at the entrance give an idea of horrible things to follow. Shrubs have grown over the landscaping with pigs and other stray animals roaming inside. The entire area looks like a garbage dump. Plastic bags and other refuse is strewn all over.

Inside the auditorium that can accommodate over 500 viewers, stink welcomes you. The doors have been stolen while roofs and wall padding are falling apart. The floor is not visible as gutkha sachets, cigarette butts, and even used condoms cover it. The seats are broken while staircases and stage are in a dilapidated condition. Only big rectangular opening is left in the name of windows as grills and panes have been stolen. Collector Saurabh Rao had assured to visit the site after TOI report but failed to do so. Rao refused to receive calls made to him.

Patil informed he was on leave but will direct assistant director of archaeology in city Anand Bhoyar to visit the memorial once again and do the needful. Bhoyar said plans were afoot to further develop the memorial and they had already sent proposal for funding to the government. "It takes time to clear the proposals," he clarified.
