  1. Patna is a wonderful traditional-cum-modern city. It has a rich history which gives it a unique place in the Indian history. One who has lived in Patna always misses its warmth and charm. There is a large number of Patnaites who have mere became a on-off visitor to the city due to their busy life schedule. This blog is an attempt to put the various aspect of Patna through visual mode
