"City of the Infinite" Anantapur by Elisabcn
Anantapur Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 16 photos
This is the first page on VT about Anantapur and I guess why. Anantapur is situated in the State of Andhra Pradesh. In local language Anantapur means « City of the Infinite ». There are no important conflicts in Anantapur but a continuous lack of everything. After the Rhajastan Desert this is the most arid (and poorest) zone in India. However the 80% of people in Anantapur depends on agriculture so you can imagine the situation.
Have you ever heard about Dalits ? I prefer to use Mahatma Gandhi’s term “Harijan” that means "Children of God" . . .
Anantapur was never the object of my trip to South India. But once there I did not mind to do some hours of bad road (and bad Indian music!) from Bangalore to visit some “special people”. There is not need to say that it was worth it.
Don't expect to find on this small page historical buildings or touristy things, I can only show you tons of smiles and some hope.
- Pros:smiles, hope
- Cons:forgotten by almost everybody . . .
- In a nutshell:looking for the God of small things
I found these public baths very interesting :-)). Here grand mums meet to wash the youngest members of the family. No... more travel advice
. . . Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect... more travel advice
