    Every city is either vibrant these days or is working on a plan to attain vibrancy soon. The reason is simple: a city isnt sucessful-isnt even a city, really-unless it can lay claim to being 'Vibrant'.

    We would love to hear from you why your city is your pride and please share your experiences and best to do in your own city.

    Thanks Rakinya.

    Happy to know so much of details of Trivandrum. I have too visited Trivandrum during my school days. I loved the greeny environment. I did stayed in one of our relation's house... which was surrounded by a coconut farm. i could barely remind some of those memories. These informations will be definetely useful for further searchers about your city.

    Re: My city My pride.

    Hello Manju,

    I am not from pondicherry, my mom's native place is pondicherry, and my dad's chennai. so I am mixed. So My city My pride, I vote for chennai and Pondicherry.

    Chennai: Breeze BEach in Tiruvanmiyur where we could notice more celebrities.

    Queenland, Kishkinta, DAkshinchitra ( where we could notice many south as well north indian house styles and many more olden rock caves and temples.

    Marina is the second longest beach in the world, and often I go there and hav fun with my friends. Its a good place if you are getting together with your friends or family members. It brings back so many sweet memories.

    Spencer plaza, - I used to hang out there, because my college is near to it, so we often bunk the classes and go to spencer plaza for getting AC breeze.

    Sorry friends, I am foodie lover, so I would talk more about food.

    Aavin milk booth - I m Aavin products lover, so my favorite is Favored milk and kulfi. For the people who are about to try AAVin flavored milk, ask for carrot, banana, apple , vanilla, pineapple ( new flavor), other chocolates, pistachio, mango, badam( already existing flavors).

    Murguan Idli shop : For all north indian friends, who are Idli and Sambar lovers, if you are about to visit chennai food, you could go in Murguan Idli shop. There is a small stall near the murugan there they sell Jigarthanda too. It's a Madurai famous drink, and I haven't tasted it in MAdurai. But one of my relatives told that its delicious in authentic madurai drink shop.

    Cafe shop : ( not a coffe lover, so doesn't goes there much)

    If the title is mentioned My state, My pride, then there would be a long list of tamil nadu.

    PONDICHERRY - now it's named as Puducherry.

    My mom's native place is pondicherry, so right from childhood to now, I have plenty of sweet memories.

    Pondicherry is famous for its beach, Annai ashram, and its a french state.

    You could notice many foreigners settled in pondicherry.

    Temples : Managula Vinayagar temple, Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple, Big Hanuman temple

    Aurobindo ashram ( Annai ashram) - its so calm and quiet there. You have to maintain silence , and you could meditate. Entry is free, and you could see umpteen of rare flowers.

    Places to visit in Pondicherry : Auroville, museums, botanical garden, arikamedu, boat house.

    The place which my grandmom dwell in pondicherry is like mini kerala because it is surrounded by plenty of coconut trees. So I used to enjoy going there during my childhood. In those days for a tree, they built leaving spaces, but today people cut down the trees. It's one of sad thing happening in TN.

    My state and my pride would be tamil nadu and pondicherry.

    Hello mini,

    Thanks for contribution dear.
    Mumbai the word itself has a magic in it. Whenever in think about Mumbai the first thing comes to mind are the Shiddhi vinayak temple, dabbawalas, shopping , chat varieties and then bollywood stars.
    And also Haji Ali mosque and Iskon temple are also famous in Mumbai.
    The city has two Airports

    The Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport and Santa Cruz Domestic Airport.

    Everyone should once in a while visit Mumbai. Mumbai, previously known as Bombay.
