Usually when people hear of Varanasi, they immediately think of the Ganges and Ghats. There's no doubt that Ganga is the real MVP of Kashi, there may be a lot more to Varanasi than you think.
Varanasi is one of the oldest cities and the spiritual capital of India. It has been more in the spotlight since last few year, but we aren't here to talk about politics, right? Varanasi is a hub of the liveliest people of planet, going about their jobs, daily with no worries about the world. The people, the temples, Ganga, the narrow lanes are trademarks of Varanasi.
But next time when you visit Varanasi, be sure to explore it thoroughly, by doing things and visiting places the Internet won't tell you about.
DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE WORKS
Diesel Locomotive Works or D.L.W as we call it, is a production unit owned by Indian Railways, that produces diesel-electric locomotives and their spare parts. The DLW campus is my getaway place in this overcrowded city. I envy the people employed in DLW. The campus is lush green and peaceful. It has a stadium where I go every morning for my daily run and "Surya Sarovar", a sort of park, with a pond in middle, it is my alternative for ghats. D.L.W is quite underestimated, DLW manufactured 334 diesel-electric locomotives in last financial year 2016-17, which is the highest ever loco production by any loco manufacturing unit in India and bagged the “Best Production Unit Shield” for the second successive year. I mean that's something.
