The desi origin of an international sport

Playing Snooker

Playing Snooker

As unbelievable as it may sound, the globally played sport of snooker does have its origins in India. In Jabalpur to be specific.

There might be no explicit written records saying snooker was invented in Jabalpur but there are stories that prove this fact. It is considered that Col. Sir Neville Chamberlain conceived the game in the British Army Officer's Mess in Jubbulpore, now Jabalpur, in 1875. The game was developed from a combination of life pool and pyramid pool.

A young officer once told him that first year cadets were called snookers for being inexperienced. During a game, when some officer missed a pot, Sir Chamberlain called him 'snooker' for his inexperience, eventually giving the game its name.

One of those rare things prettier than a full moon

Bhedaghat Water Fall


100 feet tall mountains of marble stand mightily on either side of the calm Narmada river, taking form of whatever you imagine, under the moon light. All you need to do is sail in the boat with an open mind. The river has carved the white marble into several different forms, resembling everything from animals to deities.

Or you can enjoy the top-view of this beautiful gorge through a cable-car. Whichever mode you choose, the experience at Bhedaghat is pleasantly unreal. So much so that it has served as the canvas for some of the most popular Bollywood films.

From the legendary Late Raj Kapoor's 'Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai' to Late Sunil Dutt's 'Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye' to SRK and Kareena romancing in 'Asoka', Bhedaghat has offered scenic views.
