I am 21 years old, born and brought up in Gurgaon and it’s only fair to say I know it All, Gurgaon Then and Now. I’ve literally seen Gurgaon grow, from Gurgaon to Gurugram, to kaccha roads to these beautiful flyovers. I’ve seen it all. I remember going to school in a Maruti 800 on mud roads and then on my last day, I remember coming home in a sedan and from that flyover. Gurgaon has literally grown from nothing, I remember running in the mustard fields in the winter that my grandfather cultivated and now in the same land there lies concrete forest.
Gurgaon was never the Gurgaon it is now, it was a humble town with humble people and a small community. Now Gurgaon is a culturally diverse city with a great infrastructure and you’d be surprised to know that Gurugram is a leading financial and industrial hub with the third-highest per capita income in India. From being an agricultural city to a leading financial & industrial hub, Gurgaon has surely changed for good.
Once my father told me about an incident while working in Gujarat in the 1990’s he told his friends that he’s from Gurgaon and none of them knew about the city then & they made fun of him because of being from a small town, but we cannot say the same now. Gurgaon is anything but a small town now, home to a huge number of Malls & shopping complexes, High rise buildings to reside and also a home to several celebrities Gurgaon has definitely put itself on the map.
Gurgaon Now is a well-known city in and outside of India & is home to some of the nation’s most valuable real estate. It is also a home to the local offices for more than 250 Fortune 500 companies.
Overall saying Gurgaon has risen and is doing great infrastructurally & economically as well. Weirdly enough but I feel great to know that I was here to see Gur-gaon turn into Gurgaon or should I say Gurugram!
