On Saturday, commuters who depend on public buses had tp undergo a torrid time, as hundreds of Haryana employees went on a strike protesting against private buses, who illegally ply on public bus routes. The residents of Gurgaon depend to a large extent on Gurgaon buses for their day to day transportation, and to not have 100 employees working on a weekend resulted in chaos and overcrowded autos on the roads of Gurgaon.
Gurgaon is a city of many faces. The cultural face of the city is being explored with a number of theaters, street plays and musicals. Epicentre, Kingdom of Dreams and other art centres are doing a lot to promote art and culture in a city, which is primarily populated with migrants from various places. Keeping this in mind, the Aravali Centre for Art and Culture (ACAC) is organising a classical musical evening for the people of the millennium city.
Gurgaon as a city has its share of problems, but it is slowly coming on its own. Initially known for its mall culture, the city is slowly building on its real estate empire as well as its IT hub. All the corporates have their offices in Gurgaon and the recently built Cyber Hub have added to the charm of the city. Looking at the growing popularity of the IT sector, Nasscom hosted their fourth edition of its 'Product Enclave', which is a national seminar for IT firms and startups.
Gurgaon is growing notorious by the day. After the horrific rape and murder of a 11 year old child in Gurgaon, two other independent incidents points to a degrading society, where muscle power always wins and victims are victimized.
