5 Things That Will Change The Face Of JLN Marg If Metro Gets Constructed

Metro which has given a new life and looks to the city of Jaipur is on the go to make the life of riders more comfortable. After the successful completion of Phase 1 of the Jaipur Metro, it is ready to move on with its Phase 2. Most popular and travelled road Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg is one of the leading contenders for the Phase 2. JLN Marg is also famous among the VIPs as it serves the perfect neat, clean and well-kept route for the Presidents, Vice Presidents and other important dignitaries of the country and other nation’s dignitaries.

If we get the metro rolling on the JLN Marg, here are the 5 things that will bring change into a life of a normal Jaipurite.

  1. Jawahar Circle Ab Door Nahi

Jawahar Circle

You won’t have any reason to be lazy to get up, drive to the Jawahar Circle for a refreshing morning walk.  You simply have to catch the metro from your nearest station and move on for a morning train ride.

  1. WTP Ka Ek Naya Nazariya

WTP

WTP, a drastic development to the historic city of Jaipur gets clicked from every angle. Once the metro starts, you will get a new angle to click this giant blue building, and nothing wrong if you can capture the sight of this beauty in the backdrop to your selfie.

  1. Ae Bhai Zare Dekh Ke Chalo, Par Ab Dekhne Ki Zaroorat Nahi 

RU

Traffic is one of the growing reasons for people’s irritation. Red lights are meant to be followed but what if a right going bike or car stops in the extreme left and cuts your way to run ahead of you to go right. Blood really boils during such instance especially when you come tired after the day’s work. One problem which the metro might solve is no stopping at the red lights and jump the congested traffic during office hours. You will be saved from the most difficult Rajasthan University’s crossing.

  1. Saras Parlor – Tumko Na Bhool Payengey Hum

saras-parlour

Saras Parlour, a place which is associated with lots of Jaipurites. Most of us have spent our childhood nights at Saras Parlour standing in long queues for garam doodh and jalebi in winters and softy ice creams during summer nights. But so sad, if the metro takes its way on JLN Marg we have to cease the exit to the Saras Parlour.

  1. Babuji Dheere Chalna  

JLN

The JLN Marg has butter like smoothness because of its VIP importance. Seeing this, people usually take off like a plane and are caught red-handed by the smart yet clever police. But as the metro starts, you need not worry about the speed limit as it has its own pace.

What if it actually happens? We will definitely miss the wide view that we get while moving through this road 😦
