13 Things Only People Who Grew Up In Vijayawada Will Understand!

 

Vijayawada. Ee peru general ga evaru vinna, mana mind loki ventane konni vishayalu vasthayi. Like Babai Hotel, Kanaka durga temple, Intermediate colleges etc. But ivi anni just Vijayawada janala ke kaadhu, bayata entire two Telugu states people ki kuda thelsina vishayalu, manam ee article lo veeti gurnchi assal matladam. Manam indhulo maatlade vishayalaki relate avvali ante, you must be a person who grew up in Vijayawada. Because, we will be talking about things like, over the years mana city lo elanti changes vachayi. Mana ooru gurinchi bayata vaallu em anukuntaru, but manam as a Vijayawada citizen veeti gurinchi ela feel avuthamo chudham. Veetilo meeru em em points chadhivi, ‘Arrey! avunu ra nijame’ anukunnaro maku comments lo cheppandi.

 

1. Summer, winter, spring, rainy ila seasons vere vurla lo untayi emo. Mana Vijayawada lo eppudu summer eh.


 

2. Vijayawada anagane gurthochedhi Idly eh ina. Mysore Bonda anna, Punugu-lu anna manaku pichi. Galli galli ki minimum oka punugu-la bandi untadhi. Ika mysore bonda gurinchi ithe special ga cheppe avasaram ledhu, thine kodhi potta loki pothune untayi.


 

3. Coincidence analo em analo thelidhu kani, Atu moolana Inox (Urvasi complex) nunchi start ayyi itu moolana Sailaja theatre dhaaka oka main road motham anni theatres oke line lo untayi. Cheppukodhagga vishyam entante indhulo almost anni manam chinnapatinunchi chusthunna theatres eh, but andhulo konni renovated versions.

Normal people know it as Inox, Gandhinagar. Only a true Vijayawada guy will recognise it as, Rambha-Urvasi-Menaka complex. (Same is the case with, recent Raj-Yuvaraj and G3 Screens)


 


 

4. Manam chinnapudu PWD grounds lo exhibition pettinappudu vellali vellali ani edche vaallam. Kani ippudu asal adhi okati undhi ani kuda marchipoyam. Inka mana lack of interest ni notice chesi, past few years nunchi, management kuda exhibition laantivi em conduct kuda cheyatledhu.

Ippudu evaranna PWD grounds chusthe car drivng practice cheskune place anukuntaru. Adhe manam chusthe appatlo jarigina Exhibitions, Book festivals gurthosthai.


 

5. Ooru madhyalo peruki BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System) eh ina, ee road meedha bus-lu kante, car-lu bike-le ekkuva kanapadathai enti abha? ani manam atleast okka sari ina anukoni untam.

Traffic ekkuva unna time lo, ledha night evvaru leni time lo bikes eskoni ah madhyalo busus velle lane lo vellali ane crazy thought eppudu mana brain lo untadhi.


 

6. Ippud ippudu ante kothaga raka rakala perla tho, ekkada padithe akkada (last ki bus stand lopala kuda) enno 3D theatres vachai. Kani manam chinnappudu English cinema-lu theatre lo chudali ante “Navarang” theatre okkati thappa inka vere ekkada option ledhu.

Remember Narnia, King Kong, 2012 Yugantham, 300 Yodhulu ? Ee movies anni manam theatres lo chudagaligam ante Navarang theatre eh reason.


 

7. Ippudu ante branded clothes shopping kosam andharu Bunder road ki veltharu, because full ga branded showrooms unnai. Adhe oka appudu Besant road oka pedha shopping adda.

School uniforms nunchi, Civil dresses dhaaka edhi kavali anna, Lenin centre lo unna Chandhana Brothers gurthochedhi.


 

8. Bhavani Islands. Manam school age lo unnapudu ee peru vintene aanandham aagedhi kaadhu. Oka appudu emi lekunda just simple ga unna, full ga manushulatho crowded ga undedhi.

But ippudu even after so many renovations like, speed boating, and many adventurous water rides. Its still the same.


 

9. Gandhi Hills ki vellam ante khachitham ah konda chuttu thirige chinna train pakka ekkalsindhe. Asal antha height lo city motham kanipinche la train ride ante chinnappudu excitement aagedhi kadhu (pilla bachalam kadha appudu, anthe lendi).

But ippudu most people don’t even remember it. Ee place ante ippudu andhariki nothing more than a hill anattu ipoyindhi.


 

10. Prakasam barrage road ante andhariki ishtame becauase of obvious reasons. Akkada nunchi view chala baguntadhi, place kuda manchi peaceful ga untadhi.

But ee place ki day time visit cheyataniki entha mandhi fans untaro. Night time dhaniki double untaru. (If you haven’t ever visited barrage road at night time, do it ASAP!)


 

11. Konni untayi, vaatiki craze thaggadhu peragadhu. Dheenki best example Mana vurlo, Besant road lo unna Modern Supermarket.

Appudu ippudu oke craze maintain chesthu, NTR circle dheggara oka branch, BRTS road dheggara oka branch open chesaru. (avi kuda succesful ga run avthunnai). NTR circle dheggara unde branch ithe always crowded with Narayana, Chaithanya intermediate students.


 

12. Manaki appudappudu college lo iche books chaalaka extra marks kosam extra books kavalsi vasthadhi.

Alanti time lo emergency ki edhanna book kavali ante, Dabbulu waste cheyakunda time ki thakkuva rate ki books dhorike shop “Noble Book Stall” was every student’s life saviour.


 

13. Basic ga manaku Cinema-lu ante pichi. And manalni eppudu ventade emotion. Film industry Hyderabad lo unna. Telugu cinema-la ni sagam poshinchedhi Vijayawada janale emo ani appudappudu mana andhariki anipisthadhi.

Film is in our blood. Can’t help it, you know.
