A city of Contrast


Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come from as though it’s an entry in a travel guide.

This is a re run of old prompt. You keep on giving us old prompts, we will keep on posting old posts.

Welcome, Stranger

Think about the town where you currently live: its local customs, traditions, and hangouts, its slang. What would be the strangest thing about this place for a first-time visitor?


Presently We have started staying in a city

Which is a mix of tradition and modernity

Old Buddhist caves, Luxurious malls

All under one roof, old and new walls

I am amazed to see the way they do things

What a traditional way to squeeze out sugarcane juice

The bull so happily moving in circles, helping his master

to be able to churn the sugary stems to take out fresh syrup

This belt is famous for fruits, so different varieties

A green sweet fruit known as Jack fruit or Seeta fal

Lots of corn, eat boiled or roasted as you wish

Near highways is the place to relish, enjoy the lake

A city of monuments, a city of Mughal gates

Lakes, culture, ethics, religion, belief and fates

This is Aurangabad, Maharashtra in my frame

Let me explore the history before it is too late !

  1. Oh my goodness! The caves are amazing, the market places and colors, contrasts are also so beautiful. I like when old and new are in the same place, it is definitely a ‘city of contrast.’
