SEEKING OUT  THANE            

The Lake city of Thane is the fastest growing city today  having undergone  a massive face lift from a mofussil suburb to the most happening place  running almost parallel to its twin  Mumbai city.  The city  boasts of as many lakes and green covers like  the  famous Masunda and  Upvan  lakes  alongwith  the most sought after Tikuji Ni Wadi  and Choki Ni Daani.  Besides, Thane also has a beautiful  forest cover, the picturesque Yeoor Hills where people come  to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of a hill station without moving out from the city.  Nature has been very  generous in greening Thane, hence every citizen  should shoulder the social and moral responsibility to  save and protect our greens against environmental threats.

Today, Thane is the most sought after residential hub with an excellent  infrastructure both within and outside the city, especially  the upcoming Ghodbunder area ,which makes Thane boast of having an unique advantage of connecting western  and central suburbs of Mumbai by road and Navi Mumbai by rail. Although local commuting problem is a major drawback, nevertheless positive efforts are bring made by  the administration. With the completion of STATIS, a novel transportation project by the TMC, the traffic bottlenecks would be considerably  evened out. The TMC is also implementing various  infrastructural plans to develop and beautify the city.  As land is cheaper, various commercial and industrial hubs alongwith shopping malls and hi-tech hospitals have sprung here. The city has some of the best schools which are  instrumental in  churning out merit rankers in the board examinations every year.

The most important facet of our city is the pulsating cultural spirit  of every Thaneite  which is visibly seen and felt  during the festivals and art and  cultural events.  Thaneites just love to attend every cultural event held in the city [ a visit to any event will vouch for this].  The TMC has recently thrown open Thane Kala Bhavan  a swanky four storied art gallery  to encourage the artists, scupltors and photographers to showcase their  respective talent.

But the most important aspect of the city is  the integrated effort of the people of  different communities and  the administration to come together in keeping the peace and  harmony intact.  Albeit a few and stray incidents of communal tension, the otherwise peaceful city of Thane is today enjoying a prominent place on the Indian map. No wonder to feel cool in Thane is the hottest trend.
