AHMEDABAD: One of the oldest city of the country from where Mahatma Gandhi spearheaded the Indian freedom movement will be entering 600th year of its existence in a big way from next week.
In the last six centuries city has seen many ups and downs and has developed into a mega-city which is at heart of Gujarat state's development.
The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) plans to have year-long celebrations for the city's 600th anniversary bash which was founded by Ahmed Shah in 1411.
"We plan to have many events through out the year to mark the 600 year of this historic city," AMC Deputy Commissioner, Dileep Mahajan said.
"The celebrations will begin on February 26, which is the day when the foundation of the city was laid by Ahmed Shah six centuries ago. A city-run has been organised inside the walled city followed by some cultural programmes," he said.
"City's artists, historians, industrialists and various leaders have promised their support and cooperation for the celebrations," City Mayor Kanaji Thakore said.
He said that he already had meeting with some of the well known personalities of the city who have suggested various ways for celebrating the heritage of the historical city.
The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has set aside Rs 50 lakh for the year-long celebrations to mark 600 years of the foundation of the city. That’s exactly the amount Ahmed Shah spent way back in 14th century to build the entire city. The town planing of old Ahmedabad, especially the pols, resembles that of Patan, the original capital of Ahmedshah Badshah. He spent Rs 50 lakh to build Ahmedabad. He came to the city with 3,200 camel, 800 elephants, 600 canons, 1,600 carts. The strength of his infantry was 1,00,000.
A five-member committee has been constituted to monitor preparations for the celebrations. AMC Standing Committee Chairman Asit Vora said: “This year, the city will complete 600 years and the state 50 years of its inception. We will try to make people aware of the glorious history of the city during the grand celebrations.” Run for Ahmedabad will be a part of the celebrations. AMC will set 600 questions pertaining to the city’s history.

Ahmedabad Live In Action:
When you want to connect to your DVR remotely, you will need to use either the internal or the external IP address. This will be determined by whether you are accessing the DVR from inside the network or from outside the network. If you are accessing the DVR from inside your network then you will use the internal IP address. The internal IP address will usually begin with 192.168.XX.XXX . No port number would be used since you are connecting internally. The internal IP address can usually be found in your DVR under network settings.
To access your DVR from outside the network, you will need to use an external IP address followed by the port number to identify the DVR (unless you put the DVR on port 80). An external IP address is the IP address used to connect to your router. The port number will identify the individual device inside the network you wish to access. So an external IP address would not have 192.168 in the beginning but it could be anything else. An external IP address would be entered as XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:port#
Private IP addresses exist to save on the limited number of available public IP addresses. There are actually 4 ranges of private addresses: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255 when you need a lot (16,000,000+) of addresses in your internal network; 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255 when you need up to a million or so; and 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255 or 169.254.0.0 to 169.254.255.255 when you only need up to 254 addresses. These addresses must exist behind a router or gateway, not on the live Internet.
The real genius of these private IPs is that you can get one IP from your ISP (let's say 188.8.131.52), and your router / gateway basically splits that into however many internal (private) addresses you need.
