Harrod's of Knightsbridge will be invited to set up a store on Main Street, Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea. They are a HUGE tourist attraction for London - and they have only one store abroad: in Beunos Aires, Argentina.
So that puts an END to the debate on the retail trade.
Main Street, Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea, today houses various government departments - the RTO, of course, the Tourism Department, the Deputy Collector's office, etc. This valuable real estate will be entirely privatised.
Main Street, Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea, also doubles up as Notional Highway 17. The 5 km section between the GOA BORDER and Karwar is entirely broken. This vital road for tourists will be rebuilt, and also a bypass will be constructed. There is enough unowned land for this bypass - so no "land acquisition" will be required. The funds for the purpose will be contributed by the citizenry, including especially all the new migrants.
The mausam in Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea is excellent. While it is freezing in Nude Elly now, in Daulatabad one can walk around shirtless, and in shorts, and also enjoy baths in cold water. There is no need for air-conditioning in summer. And good weather is an important reason for the location of a major city.
When Babur conquered Dilli in 1526, it was summer - and some of his senior-most generals took their men and went back to Kabul and Kandhahar. They couldn't take the heat. Neither could the Brits - hence Simla, Dehra Doon, Mussoorie, Nainital, Landsdowne... These fuckers have destroyed all these hill-stations.
But, while the Brits had explored their territory for housing new cities and towns, the Mughals had not. An interesting story pertains to one general of Aurangzeb who was sent to the Deccan to battle Shivaji. This guy camped at Chakan, outside Poona - and stayed put for six months or more. One day, one of his more zealous captains approached him and inquired as to when he plans for battle - because the army has been idle for long. The general replied:
"The weather is excellent here. Let us stay camped. If we fight, and if we win, we will be surely sent off to Kabul or Kandhahar - and its too cold there."
Of course, Pune is a DISASTER today.
But the mausam at Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea is far, far better than that at Kabul or Kandhahar, to which Babur's generals fled to escape the Dilli heat.
The word "mausam" is an Arabic word, and it lies at the root of the English word "monsoon." There is NO MONSOON in Dilli. The Mughals used to complain that "Allah holds a chattri over Dilli." Chattri means "umbrella."
Daulatabad-upon-the-Sea gets 4 full months of monsoon rains every year. Delightful!
The word mausam was used by the Arabs to refer to the "trade winds" by which their ships sailed to the Western Coast of India.
Foreign Trade, Here We Come
As a footnote: Dilli has been abandoned 7 times in its history. And even Tughlaqabad is full of jhuggis today!
