New Delhi, Brand Desk. One of the oldest cities of the country, Patna has been a witness to many historical, political and cultural stories. The history of about 2500 years makes Patna a very culturally rich city. Known as the ancient name of Pataliputra, this city was made their capital by rulers like Chandragupta Maurya and Ashoka the Great. Ancient travelers such as Fahien and Megasthenes have also described this city in their writings. This city is also a wonderful example of universal religion. Even today, Patna shares many historical stories of different cultures and religions with us. In the next phase of our special program ‘Bharat Ke Rang TVS Radeon Ke Sang’, we will know the beautiful stories of this city.
Colors of Patna, Radeon Man with Sharanya
To know Patna, a city full of different colors, we were looking for such a strong personality and this search took us to Radeon Man Sharanya Sinha. Sharanya, who has settled Patna in his heart, is also a lawyer and an artist by profession. Along with this, through his NGO, he also teaches the underprivileged children of Patna city. This effort of refuge to advance himself as well as the whole society makes him a powerful Radeon Man just like TVS Radeon.
Digha Bridge, the identity of the new Patna
The series of stories of Patna city started from the very beautiful Digha Bridge. This 4556 meter long bridge is one of the major changes that have happened in Patna in the last few years. This bridge is also called JP Setu in the name of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash. It is the second longest rail cum road bridge in India. This bridge connects Patna and Sonpur. Driving the TVS Radeon from above, we got to see a wonderful view of both the Ganga and the city of Patna.
Peace of Takht Sri Harimandir Sahib
Our next stop was Takht Sri Harimandir Sahib, also known as Patna Sahib. The tenth and last Guru of Sikhism, Guru Gobind Singh was born here. Guru Gobind Singh spent some of his childhood here only. His childhood cradle, paduka, sword and hukumnama are still kept safe in the gurudwara. Every year lakhs of Sikh pilgrims visit Patna Sahib. There is a feeling of peace and tranquility only by visiting here.
Buddha Smriti Park reflects the teachings of Mahatma Buddha
It was built by the Government of Bihar on the occasion of the 2554th anniversary of Mahatma Buddha. It was inaugurated by the Buddhist religious leader Dalai Lama on 27 May 2010 on the day of Buddha Purnima. There is a 200 feet high stupa in the middle of it. Along with this, the sculptures of Buddha bone relics brought from 6 countries have also been kept here. It is also known as Pataliputra Karuna Stupa.
International Litti Chokha of Patna
If we talk about Patna and Litti Chokha is not talked about, then understand that the story is incomplete. Litti Chokha is a staple dish not only of Patna, but of entire Bihar. The most important thing with this is that people of all classes eat it with great fervor. Wheat flour litti and gram sattu inside it, hardly anyone can tell why the dish made in such a simple way stays in the hearts of the people of Bihar. Just like TVS Radeon resides in the hearts of every class of people.
During the Patna tour, we saw, knew and understood other colors of Patna. TVS Radeon made this journey even more comfortable, while there, our Radeon Man Sharanya Sinha introduced us and you from Patna.
