इन्डीयाना याने ?

स्टेट पक्षी कार्डिनल - ऐसा ही पक्षी ,
अक्सर दाना खाने हमारे यहाँ पर भी आता है! :)
स्टेट ऑफ़ इन्डीयाना
गिरिजाघर - ऐसे कई , अमरीकी शहरों से गुजरते वक्त दीख जाते हैं - अब कहीं कहीं मन्दिर, मस्जिद या गुरूद्वारे या थाई या बौध्ध धर्म के पूजा स्थल भी दीख जाते हैं -
एक नदी इसे चीरती है सो इसका नाम ऐसा रखा गया है !
मरीडीयन लाइन जो समय का बँटवारा करती है वो भी वहीँ से गुजरती है -
आधा इन्डीयाना १ आगे / पीछे रहता है ! जैसे , इस वक्त --

और ये दूजा घर !
जी हां ।". क्या कहा ? इन्डीयाना याने ? " अकसर लोग दुबारा पूछते हैं, जब् भी मैं कहती हूँ कि, " हम इंडियाना जा रहे हैं ! " वे कहते हैं , "क्या ? आप इंडिया जा रहे हैं ? " मुझे फ़िर कहना पड़ता है , " नहीं ..नहीं ..हम लोग इन्डीयाना स्टेट जा रहे हैं !! " हमारे स्टेट ओहायो से उत्तर पश्चिम की दिशा में ये इन्डीयाना प्रांत आया है - इसकी राजधानी है, इन्डीयानापोलिस !! सन` १८१६ की ११ दीसंबर के रोज इसे प्रांत के स्वरूप में , अपनी पहचान हासिल हुई थी। इस का मुख्य पक्षी है कार्डिनल ! ये नुकीली चोंचवाला , लाल रंग का सुंदर पक्षी है।
यहाँ के मूल निवासी शौनी कौम के रेड इन्डीयन थे जिन का चीफ या सरदार टेकुमश बहादुरी के लिये विख्यात है।
मैँने इसके कई छोटे शहरोँ की यात्रा कयी बार की है जिनके नाम अजीब से लगेँगेँ आपको, जैसे कि, "गेरी इन्डीयाना " , वेलापरासीयो, गोशेन, फोर्ट वेयन नोबल्ज़्वील, कोकोमो, ऐन्डर्सन, टेर्रे होटे, मेरियन्, ब्लूमीँगटन, मेडीसन, न्यू एल्बेनी, एवान्ज़वील्, रीचमन्ड, लाफेयेट, हूज़ीयर हील्ज़ और मन्सी जो सबसे अधिक सँख्या मेँ अपराधीयोँ को फाँसी देने के लिये कुख्यात जिला है !! अक्सर जिस छोटे शहर के साथ "वील " लगा रहता है, वो मेरी समझ से,
वीलेज का ही रुप है !
Broad Ripple -
its a very scenic town a river runs through it & hence its Name :)
&
the Meridian Line goes through this Town too -- TIME LINE --
Beautiful Homes along the Bank -- God knows who all live there
यहाँ रेस कारोँ की स्पर्धा हर वर्ष होती है जो बहुत प्रसिध्ध है जिसे देखने दुनियाभर के शौकीन जमा होते हैं -- कॉल्ड इंडी ५०० !!
इस साल मोटर बाईक की दौड भी होनेवाली है जिसमेँ हिस्सा लेने "बाईकर कम्युनिटी " जो अपने आप मेँ एक अजीब, रोमाँचकारी वर्ग के बाईक के जाँबाजोँ और रसिकोँ की अलग सी दुनिया है उनके हजारोँ सवार अपनी अपनी लोहे की मोटर बाईक लेकर इन्डीयाना पहुँचेँगेँ ! वो समाँ भी देखने लायक होता है - शोर अलग से दील दहलाता है ! कई बाईकरज़ बडी ऊमर के भी होते हैँ इनमेँ वियतनाम के युध्ध से लौटे, कई सारे वोर वेट्रन्ज़ बहादुर भी शामिल होते हैँ जो अक्सर पूरे अमरीका मेँ बाईक पर बँजारोँ की तरह घूमते रहते हैँ और काले चमडे के तँग पेँट और काले जाकीटोँ मेँ लैस रहते हैँ और हार्ली डेवीडसन अमरीकी मोटर बाइकोँ मेँ सर्वाधिक प्रिय है -
