Its a beautiful city and I have been visited this glorious city in the year 2007 where my parent was born and my blood relatives are still residing there. I intend to visit Akola again and see with my family members when Almighty Allah give me opportunity I will visit this lovely city, but I miss Akola and my heart wants fly to reach Akola.... added by   Hafeez ur Rehman on Aug 27 2012
