Happy B’Day Ahmedabad


Today (26th February), My most loved city, Ahmedabad,  has completed 599 years of journey and enters in 600th year.

Flashback – In 1411, the rule of the Muzaffarid dynasty was established in Gujarat. According to legend, Sultan Ahmed Shah, while camping on the banks of the River Sabarmati, saw a hare chasing a dog. Impressed by this act of bravery, the Sultan, who had been looking for a place to build his new capital, decided to locate the capital at this forest area close by to Karnavati right on the river bank and christened it Ahmedabad.The incident is popularly described in a one liner saying “Jab kutte pe sassa aaya, tab Badshah ne shaher basaya”. When the hare chased the dog, seeing that act of bravery then the Emperor built the City.
