STUNNING VILLAGE OF INDIA - MALANA
Malana is an ancient village in Himachal. This lonely village in Parvati Valley, is isolated from the rest of the world.

Malana is considered to be one of the first democracies in the world. According to folklore, the residents of Malana are the successors of Aryans, and they obtained their freedom during the Mughal reign when Emperor Akbar walked to the village in order to cure an ailment that he was afflicted with; after having been successfully cured he put out an pronouncement stating that all the residents of the valley would never be required to pay tax. Another tradition recommends that Malana was founded by remnants of Alexander the Great’s Army.

FIND DELHI’S NAME HISTORY FOR FAMOUS SPOTS
Though the Capital is 100-year-old on the map of the world, the etymology of the word ‘Delhi’ is still swathed in different tales. The most popular being: it is derivative from Dilli, a shady description of dehleez or dehali (meaning threshold). This made the city’s name emblematic of a place which is the gateway to the Indo-Gangetic plain. However, there is always an additional story, not many know that Delhi could have also resultant its name from the legend of king Anangapala II — who erected an iron pillar amidst weak groundwork. Since the king’s lack of confidence, the pillar and his kingdom were subsequently measured as dheela (meaning loose). Read on to know tales behind names of different places in Delhi.
Erected in 1933, CP was named after Duke of Connaught (Arthur, son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert) to honour him on his visit to Delhi. Captivatingly, CP doesn’t have ‘I’ and ‘O’ blocks! The reason is that they can probably confuse with the numerical 1 and 0!
Named after a Marathi word ‘chawri’ (meeting place), at this time, a ‘sabha’ would take place in facade of a noble’s home, who always tried to patch up matters.
The charge of rearranging the people of Raisina village to make way for the impressive edifices of state to come up along Rajpath was given to a British officer named Young, who was the deputy commissioner of Delhi. The colony where he resettled these people was called ‘Youngpura’, which was later colloquialised as Jangpura.
As the story continues, Nizamuddin blessed one of his most loved followers so that he could light lamps with water as an alternative of oil in the neighbouring village. After achievement of this feat, his devotee Naseeruddin was named ‘Chirag’, and the area was named Chirag Dilli. (Chirag means ‘lamp’).
The name is the spoilt edition of Yantra Mantra — which means instruments and formulae.
In Urdu, Shahdara means ‘door of kings’. The source of the name lies in two Persian words: ‘Shah’ means kings and ‘Dara’ means a door. There is another legend: “Shahdara has initiated from ‘shahi dara or dariya’. It was close to a ‘dariya’ — Yamuna river, and goods came to Delhi through this river..
There were five brothels in Delhi earlier. Garstin, a British commissioner, combined them into one red-light area. It was named after him: Garstin Bastion Road/GB Road. “GB Road was named after Garstin. It was a place where ‘mujras’ happened. actually, there were three places to view mujras from, for different classes- Qutub Road for lower, GB Road for middle and Chawri Bazaar for the higher classes, ” says a shop owner.
According to the tale of Ala-ud-Din Khilji’s war exploits, the name Siri given to the fort was because the foundation of the fort was built on severed heads (‘sir’ means head in Hindi) of about 8, 000 Mongol soldiers killed in the war.“Khilji defeated the Mongols. The soldiers were beheaded, and their heads were used in the foundation of the Siri Fort. The remains of the fort still remain for all to see”, says Om Prakash Tanwar, owner, Siri Fort Associates.
This name is derived fromr the boats men of the Mughal era, ‘Balli’ is a hindi word meaning ‘oars of a boat’ and ‘Maran’ means ‘the act of steering oars’. “In Mughal era, boats were used for transportation between Red Fort and Fatehpuri mosque. However, in what is now Ballimaran, streets were too small for a boat to navigate. That is why ballis were used instead.
Mehrauli was earlier known as Mihirawali, which means ‘Home of Mihir’, and was founded by King Mihir Bhoja of the Gurjara-Pratihara Dynasty. Another legend is that the name Mehrauli is attributed to Mehrawali Mai (Mehr means Blessings), whose temple is right next to Bhool Bhulaiyya (Adam Khan’s tomb), as one enters Mehrauli. “The Muslims in Mehrauli believe that the name comes from Mehr-e-wali, where ‘mehr’ means blessings and ‘wali’ is an Arabic word meaning ‘custodian’, ‘protector’ or ‘helper’ — thus, a holy man.

THE SANCHI STUPAS: A MARVEL IN STONE
Located around 46 km from Bhopal, Sanchi Stupas radiate calmness and tranquility. You will experience a sense of spiritual rapture as you go into one of the four main entrances that will take you to the magnificent structure of the Sanchi Stupa, standing tall at 17 meters. It is alleged that the stupas were build for holding the ashes of Buddha himself, or of afterwards Buddhist teachers and are thus of great spiritual value.
Its History: The Stupa first built by Ashoka Maurya in the middle of the 3rd century BC has been a renowned Buddhist pilgrimage site ever since. Consequent rulers extended this assertion although the place has no straight relation with episodes in the life of the Buddha. Nevertheless, with the decline of Buddhism in India the structure was slowly reduced to ruins and lay abandoned for a long time. Renovation work started in the 20th century at the site where the main stupas were rebuilt. The park and museum that you see now were also constructed through that time. Sanchi has been confirmed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
