"Dhanbad without a doubt has its flaws. But it is the hardships in Dhanbad that makes the people of the city so strong. Being from Dhanbad (though I did not spend many years there), I'm habituated to rugged roads, frequent power cuts and unbearable heat, dust and pollution but whatever said and done Dhanbad is HOME. It is a place where you know exactly which sweet shop has which kinds of sweets. A place where you know the best veggies are sold. Dhanbad really is the 'black diamond' of India."
