I was born in Ahmedabad in 1991 & since then I am living in this city. It is situated in dry state of India but it is the best city to live in India. It is not that I am saying that Ahmedabad is the best city to live but lots of researches and surveys have proved that. It meets all the requirements of leading a good life. Ahmedabad is one of the metro cities of India. Education, Infrastructure and Industry are well developed in this city. It is very much different from other metro cities of India. To describe how it is different from other metros and why it is the best city to live I will put light on its three key features. Design, Drive and Connect.
Ahmedabad is known as heritage city worldwide but it is designed in such a way that it is divided into two parts. One part of the city is full of heritage structures like siddhi saiyad mosque, lal darwaja, delhi darwaja, gandhi ashram etc while the other side has modern cafes, malls, car showrooms, flyovers, stadiums etc. Sabarmati river devide these two parts. On one side of the Sabarmati there is heritage Ahmedabad while on the other side there is modern Ahmedabad. Apart from bridges over Sabarmati there is Sabarmati riverfront which connects both parts of the city. There are lot places to visit in the city. I don't know who has designed Ahmedabad like this. Who so ever did that has made a great design of the city.
When it comes to drive, Ahmedabad is not like Mumbai that it takes two and a half hours to reach to a destination 10 kms away. I am not saying that there is no traffic in the city. There is traffic but not too much like Mumbai. There are some roads in Ahmedabad which are always full of vehicles while some are always empty. I think one would always enjoy the drive in Ahmedabad if he/she chooses the route to the destination wisely. City has great roads to drive on. Even one can enjoy long drives on some of roads of the city.
Ahmedabad is situated in the heart of Gujarat and it is very well connected with other parts of country and the world through various modes. Ahmedabad has both domestic as well as international airport. There are many direct flights from Ahmedabad to various countries of the world. Frequency of domestic flights to other major cities of the country is also good. Apart from air Ahmedabad connects pretty well with other parts of the country via rail. There are many trains from Ahmedabad to all the remaining of India. When it comes to connectivity by road then Ahmedabad is directly connected with NH 8. Hence it is very well connected to other parts of the country by road as well.
Apart from this Ahmedabad gives peace of mind to the people. Which is very important to lead healthy life. Moreover unlike Delhi, women and girls are safe in this city. Who doesn't want peaceful life like this that's why people prefer to take job transfer in Ahmedabad than any other city in India. I think by now you would have understood why Ahmedabad is the best city to live in India.
