U.P. (Uttar Pradesh) is as awesome as gold if you digg down.. read 13 reasons to know why..

U.P., Uttar Pradesh, bhaiyaji, paan, tajmahal, eve-teasing and what not. We link U.P. with these few terms only. I have traveled through length & breadths of the nation and found U.P. as a topic of an abysmal debate for development. Here are a few traits of U.P. and its people which will make you think above your general perception. 

Down-to-earth people 

7 (6)

You will find middle class people surprisingly down to earth. They are as humble as Gandhiji, as focused as Lal Bahadur Shastri and as dedicated to their family as Bhagat Singh was to country.

BFF

A friend in need is the friend indeed. And when you need a true friend who would literally die for you, make one from U.P.

Compilation of nearly all major religion of world

4 (2)

Nearly every religion resides in peace and harmony in U.P. You will see a Hindu saying 'Eid-mubark' and a Muslim saying Happy Diwali. A Sikh enjoying Christmas while a Christian doing 'seva' in Gurudwara. We are one here. 

U.P. can endure

1

Motherland India has seen incompetent people engulfing the people of this north state with cruelty, exploitation and humiliation. But people have the tendency to endure and move forward.

Active enrollment in Military

2 (4)

 

Like Sher-E-Punjab, here people too have a heart beating for India. Indian defense has seen a very high percentage of enrollment from U.P.

Economical focal point

Despite governments indulgence in vote bank politics instead of economical development, Uttar Pradesh, with a GDP of US$115 billion is in fact the fourth largest Indian state by economy.

Independence – It all started here!!

The Sugar King of India

1 (2)

India is on of the Sugar kings of the world and 70% of India's sugar comes from Uttar Pradesh. So if you having sugar right now in your beverage, it is most probably from U.P.

Call to connect

Sonebhadra, Energy Capital of India!

8b831b6041db22c949c579afa5e3f764

Sonebhadra is referred to as the Energy Capital of India. It is a treasure for Industrial raw material.

Education

3 (1)

World's highest number of professionals are exported from India and India's highest number of professional are made in U.P. with more than 30 universities, 4 central, 20 state universities, 8 deemed universities along with 1 IIM Lucknow, 2 IITs, 1 NIT in Allahabad and hundreds of industrial training institutes, polytechnics, engineering colleges. 

Backbone of Art 

3_1383217823

First, I am not stating flying cars senseless recent Bollywood over here. I am talking about 'art' of music and literature and acting (Amitabh bachan). They are very much born here but have to travel to Mumbai where people know how to honor the art by it giving a large platform to perform. Jaishankar Prasad, Munshi Premchand, Sachchidananda Hirananda Vatsyayan 'Agyeya', Rahul Sankrityayan, Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Dharamvir Bharati, Subhadra Kumari Chauhan, Mahavir Prasad Dwivedi, Swami Sahajanand Saraswati are a few examples.

 

People of Uttar Pradesh are not presented properly. They are projected as over exploited yet underdeveloped. But the fact is that U.P. is the abundance of everything. My intention is not to say its better than any other states in the country instead I just want to focus on the unknwn facts of the U.P.
