    I too shall like to see more Pics of this Chora bari tal. Regret how the politicians changed the name of ancient religious Chora bari Tal to Gandhi Sarovar can be said SAD. Its old name should be restored. We sud have only one project to be named even for such leader. Govt should decide after taking the local residents and religious leaders in to confidence, the old name should be restored.
