My city is very beautiful surrounded by green plants, You can see waterfalls and feel the natural beauty. You can visit dense forest with wild animals. Dams and river are also very beautiful. It is a small city but it’s really beautiful.

Rachi is called, ‘waterfalls’. There are more than eleven dams and waterfalls combined. The city is beautiful and full of beautiful scenery. It also is the capital of an Indian state Jharkhand.

Ranchi has almost perfect weather. In the 1800s, it was also one of summer capitals in India, when the British living in the adjacent warmer areas needed an escape the heat. In May-June, when the majority of my country experiences extremely hot and dry weather, my city remains breezy and pleasant. Weather profoundly affects our mental health. This might be the reason why the British chose my city to establish the first mental hospital with modern facilities.

At very first Ranchi is one of the beautiful city in India. Ranchi is famous for its climate and natural greenery. Ranchi comes under 2nd tier city. Mostly all the necessary things are available in the town. Ranchi is also famous for good quality of fruits and vegetables. People here are very much helpful.

Ranchi is famous for MS Dhoni and it’s also the capital of Jharkhand. Earlier my city is hill station but now it’s too hot here also. As Ranchi has many hills and tourist places but due to summer no one comes but when winter comes all the park and malls are full of publics.

See, the most popular thing my hometown is known for all over the country is its pleasant weather throughout the year regardless of the season. Also, it has managed to attract more external investment than the city where TATA Steel emerged from, i.e., Jamshedpur. And this makes it one of the few best options available for contributing to India’s economy through its innumerable white-collar and blue-collar jobs and even the budding culture of entrepreneurship.

Ranchi is a small city with a weather similar to that of Pune, comfortable and pleasant throughout the year. Though a small town, it has an exposure to the modern lifestyle. People here are very warm and welcoming and make efforts to know about each other. A population with diverse culture in terms of food and language live here.

The main attraction of Ranchi is the climate here. A hot and humid morning converts to a beautiful rainy afternoon. With all the basic facilities and less crowd Ranchi is a developing city. With air connectivity across India, we all Ranchi citizens are blessed with a beautiful culture, weather and less crowd.

The first thing my hometown is known for is for its comparatively pleasant weather throughout the year. Also, outsiders perceive it to be one of the fastest-growing urban areas emerging out of the 2000 split of state of Bihar into two parts. But, the most important thing that bothers me is that it is a town present in one of the most backward states in India.

Being familiar about the laws regarding the native tribal people. Having the capacity to cope up with the instant weather modulations. Should be comfortable with close neighbourhood. Should have the idea of accepting all walks of people right from orthodox to well educated. Should never mess up with any native tribal family living near them.
