Daily Report 2 – Nagpur – Center of India

Today’s drive was better than yesterdays. We had better energy thanks to good sleep. We left Hyderabad around 6:30AM. After a couple of pictures at Hussein Sagar we drove constantly for couple of hours. We took a break in between for a quick self-made breakfast along with Sushila’s tea.

Wikipedia The Great Trigonometrical Survey was a project of the Survey of India throughout most of the 19th century. It was piloted in its initial stages by William Lambton, and later by George Everest. Among the many accomplishments of the Survey were the demarcation of the British territories in India and the measurement of the height of the Himalayan giants: Everest, K2, and Kanchenjunga. The Survey had an enormous scientific impact as well, being responsible for one of the first accurate measurements of a section of an arc of longitude, and for measurements of the geodesic anomaly.
