I am back to city and my computer after more than 2 weeks. I came back on 24th July, but since then my computer darling or internet darling is having some problem or the other and not allowing me to blog....:x.. Anyways now its (hopefully) okkay. I was in Durgapur for a vacational training in DSP (Durgapur Steel plant). Never expected I would love Durgapur so much, from the air to the people, to the smoke to the chimneys.... I am steel in the trance .... I am in love with Durgapur, every little bit of it. I dont have enough words to express my thoughts and feelings towards Durgapur,the tinsel town. I wondered before going there , how would I manage in a Completely unknown city for Two weeks, but when ultimately I was coming back and the Durgapur-city-line was vanishing through the train window I felt pain....Felt like getting down from the train and running away. While leaving my city ,Kolkata I dint feel bad.....(though it may sound rude and bad, its true...), but now when I am here I am terribly missing Durgapur. I stayed at a relatives' place who were soo much cordial, that I never expected them to be. The love, the warmth Durgapur gave me I cant explain with my Vocab.
Durgapur Steel Plant ~ I felt very lucky the moment I entered the plants' main gate......how many people, rather how many girls do have a luck to visit such an integrated steel plant in the lifetime. I was exalted, I was proud to be one. Here are a few selected pics of DSP and Durgapur seeing which I still(steel :P) glimmer. (I took 228 number of pics dere..)
Team DSP. We were the selected 7 from our college for the VT in 13th-24th july slot.
Ispat Bhavan ,DSP main building... the house of steel bosses.....
Gate NO.1 of DSP.
Layout of the plant.
The huge lathe machine inside Central engineering Maintainance shop (CEM). Had to manage in a diagonal way.
Wheels and axles after finishing.
Inside skelp mill... This is where sheets of steel are prepared. the fluroscent strip is the sheet of steel. The coiling the strips looks nice .....like coiling of a bright orange snake....zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Almost lost in one of the farthest corners of the plant.... On that day for coming out of the plant we took lift in a CISF truck that bumped like hell , was throwing me up in the sky and catching me down again.
After the roller coaster ride on truck....resting....me standing as if I have won a battle..:P
One of the blast furnaces.....(my especial interest of the DSP trip).
My favourite pic. I just love this chimney pic.... standing tall and aspiring others to stand higher.
The Arjun..... Aiming high...
Empty compartments , Moments before the journey ended in Howrah station.
Thus the journey ended, and I had to come back to kolkata.... the day we came back , all the private transport sectors(including bus, taxis autos, evrything) called a strike.....uffffffffff......got pissed off... the govt. bus was so crowded that people could hardly get in or get out.. Yet people were boarding on it....
4 days over I have come back, but the trance is still prevailing. In true sense its a gift for me...which I couldnt realise before going and coming back..
Miss you Durgapur and evrything about you...be it the sweltering heat, dust, smoke, rare traffic or the warmth and love you instilled in me...whatevcr... I love you.
