‘Zero Miles’ from a place called Nagpur

We, the people of Nagpur, are centered. Mind you I said centered not ‘Self centered’!

We literally live in the heart of India (Dil mein bus gaye) well, not sure if that applies to Indians!

Nagpur has a ‘zero mile’ stone erected by Britishers to indicate and measure distances from this central point.

Thus we have some advantage with ‘Zero’. But still zeroing on something is not very easy here!

One can also look at this stone as a mile stone in reaching a state of nothingness or pure consciousness i.e void!

There are few heroes to the credit of Nagpur. So from them it was like ‘zero se hero ban gaye’!

Being strategically located several government bodies have their regional offices in Nagpur. What it indicates is that we have close access to ‘governance’ too!

Statistically, it follows ‘Central Limit Theorem’. It has all ‘significant’ values that can be measured with ‘measures of central tendency’.

Zero is total of minus one and plus one. Nagpur thus is true reflection of India which has one plus and equal and opposite minus to nullify that plus! Vice versa  is equally true.

In a nutshell, Nagpur’s nothingness (zero-mile-ness) leads to something-ness!
