  • My Visakhapatnam visit

    Posted on June 20th, 2009 Hari Gangadharan 1 comment

    Last week I visited Visakhapatnam, the place where I started my career. That was so long back. I went there after 15 years to visit my old friends, my colleagues and above all to show my kids what I did in those days. I worked in the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. I was so proud to show my kids the basics of Steel Making… the Blast Furnace, the Linz-Donawitz Converter, the Continuous Cast Machines and the Rolling Mills. I am pretty sure my wife and kids never thought that the Steel Plant was that huge.

    Visakhapatnam and the Steel City (the Ukkunagaram) looked totally different. The Steel City looked so nice and clean 15 years back. Now it looks pretty much beat up. The roads are well maintained but the houses seemed to be lacking quality maintenance. All the trees have grown up and is hiding the buildings.

    The Visakhapatnam city looked marvelous – all single lane roads are now 2 lanes each-way with good dividers. Politicians in Visakhapatnam should be given some credit since the changes in my home state Kerala is close to none. We visited some nice beaches and had fun. The unfortunate thing is that both of my kids came down with Amoebic dysentery.

    Now I am back in Kerala and kids are home resting. They still have not fully recovered from their dysentery. My wife and I hit the road again for social visits.
