A city to live with. I have been living in this since last 16 years. Compared to cities like Kolkatta where I lived for many years before coming to Raipur, this city is people friendly and I never come accross any major problem. While on one side the city is devloping fast, one should keep a check to ensure that the city should continue to be comfortable to live with.
RAIPUR IS RAPID GROWING CITY. FAST MOOVING, A BIG MARKET FOR ALL THINGS. HERE HAVING SHOPS AND OFFICES IN MAXIMUM HOUSES, IT MEANS A BIG POPULATION IS PROFESSIONAL. MANY BIG INVESTER INTEREST HERE, MANY BIG PROJECTS ARE COMING, MANY EXIST WITHIN LAST 10 YEARS. BUT HERE IN PROPER RAIPUR HAVING NO TOURIST SPOT BUT IT IS ENJOYABLE CITY.
