“The Himachal High Court has banned political rallies in the
Ladies Park (also known as Rani Jhansi Park), saying such activities defeated the purpose for which the park was developed.”
This news made me go back to theLadies Park traveling down my memory lanes! What was the basic purpose behind the setting up and development of theLadies Park? I think, no one, in our times thought much about the basic purpose behind all the facilities that were being provided. It was just taken for granted. During our childhood, we lived in the Lower Bazaar area of the town where the open space for playing was really limited and Sundays not only meant freedom from the weekly regimen but an opportunity to go to the Ladies park and play for endless hours. Looking back, I find that this was a matter of convenience for my parents as well to have some time to them selves when we would be away!
