World Cities Inspiring Palava City
Man has been creating cities from the time he is civilized. There are various civilizations done by man in earlier days. Like the Egyptian civilization, the Indus Valley civilization, etc. These civilizations are nothing but cities developed by Man. Man have always created inspiring structures which last for generations. The leaning tower of Pisa, the Pyramid of Giza is examples of this.
In modern day, man is developing cities in a much faster manner. We have to develop cities that are future ready for generations to come. We have to take inspiration from other cities in the world to develop a new city. We have to see all the positive aspect from these cities to develop our future ones.
One such city is being developed in India which has been inspired by the great cities in the world. This city is being developed in the outskirts of Mumbai and is named as Palava City. Palava comes from a Sanskrit word Palav meaning ‘Budding flower’. The name has been aptly selected since Palava is still budding i.e. it is still being developed. Palava will become a reality by 2025.
