After spending three adventurous days in the capital city, I was enjoying every moment. I had two more days left to explore the city. I along with my friends have a planned a journey through all the memorials of the great leaders of the nation. We began our journey in the morning. Here is a list of all the memorials we visited :
Raj Ghat: Memorial of the Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi is in a calm and serene surrounding and decorated with fresh flowers all of us experience the pride and the dignity of the great personality. It is true that all of the future generation and we owe a salute to this great man. An inscription in Rajghat has the popular words ‘Raghupati raghav raja ram…’. The resting place of the great soul is respected by one and all.
Shantivan: The resting place of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru lies in the north of Rajghat. It is an area with a park and a number of trees. The trees are those planted dignitaries on various occasions. We stood there silent in prayers for a few moments and refreshed our memories about the great leader.
Shakti Sthal: It is Indira Gandhi memorial, which reminds us of the powerful woman leader that the nation ever had. We walked along the side and every time we visit any memorial, we experience the respect that we have for our leaders. Though there were many visitors, every one maintains silence and pay respect.
Veer Bhumi: We moved on to the next memorial, which was dedicated to Rajiv Gandhi who lost his life in a bomb blast. As soon as I reached near Veer Bhumi, it took me back to history and made me proud of our leaders.
It is a vast area, which has the memorials of all great leaders like Lal Bahdur Shastri, Sanjay Gandhi, Giani Zail Singh, Shankar Dayal Sharma, Chandra Sekhar, Devilal and I K Gujaral. It took about four hours for us to go around the place but returned with a different mind that took us days back to history. It was time for lunch; we moved on to find a restaurant. It was a fabulous visit with delightful experience!
