Zrenjanin je najveći grad u Banatu i treći najveći grad Vojvodine. On nije tipičan vojvođanski gradić. Kao prvo, retko da gradovi dobijaju ime po čoveku – Žarku Zrenjaninu. Ko je bio ovaj čovek i zašto je neki grad u Vojvodini dobio ime po njemu?
Rođen početkom XX veka, svoju karijeru započeo je kao nastavnik u obližnjem selu. Kao mlad čovek pokrenuo je puno ozbiljnih projekata poput analfabetskih kurseva, otvaranja narodnog univerziteta i brojih biblioteka i čitaonica. Kao aktivan član Komunističke partije Jugoslavije često je ulazio u sukob sa vlastima što ga je dovelo do zatvora. Tokom II svetskog rata bio je inicijator stvaranja partizanskih odreda, zbog kojih je bio prozvan “crvenim generalnom” pa je kasnije pao u nemilost Gestapu, tako da je bio uhvaćen i ubijen 1942. Posle 4 godina Žarko je proglašen narodnim herojem a grad Petrovgrad dobija novo ime – Zrenjanin.
Zrenjanin is a city with a deep tradition of making up incredibly intricate ways to get to the destination from the starting point. Located near a water source that for centuries has been more than adequate, it holds a record for number of beer burps per second in the European burping finals of 2012.
That said, when the college students achieved this record, it was unverified, but received the publicity it deserves nonetheless.
I spent some time living in Zrenjanin, but it was a while ago, and my memories are not that great, but I do remember thinking that it was a cloudy day, it looked like it was going to rain, and I remember my sore feet because of all the walking I had to do, on the aforementioned intricate, long and winding walking paths that I was taking, for reasons that seemed good at the time, I needed exercise. I remember I was somewhere near Kuca Grada Zrenjanina.
It’s coming back to me.
It was a Saturday morning, I’m was pretty new here, my old ’87 beater had broke down, and I had to get to my new job somehow. My car just wouldn’t start, the cabs said they would take about two hours (probably because of all the people that haven’t slept yet, still drunk, needed rides to their destinations.) What about me? This isn’t fair.
So I got my phone out, put my go-to address into the GPS, and started walking. Great. I then realized I forgot to change my phone last night. It’s at 8%. Let’s just hope it lasts. It probably wont.
Twenty long minutes go by, and I’m still walking. Phone’s at 2%. I have no clue where I’m going, what the building even looks like… I guess I could ask someone.
Phone is dead. I have no clue where to go, I noticed that the street I’m on is really old, dark, and creepy looking. There are a couple houses, and all of the little shops are closed down. I’m thinking to myself, ‘how in the world am I going to get to work…’
I then had to go up to this huge mansion, I’ve never seen anything like it before… Maybe it’s a castle… I needed to check to see if anyone was in there, I had no choice really, but to just take a chance. It had a sign outside that had fading blue words, I could kind of make out what it said… “Kuca Grada Zrenjanina”… Whatever that means. It looked pretty spooky. I don’t even know what it is…
Anyways, I ring the doorbell then knocked on the door. This is pretty interesting, I know I hear footsteps, someone is inside. Maybe it’s just a cat or something.
Nobody is answering, I walk away and continue my mysterious walk around the city to work (hopefully).
I eventually found my way down town where there is people surrounding me. I went into a donut shop to ask the manager where this address was. He said it was just across the next street. Hooray.
At work at last. What a nightmare… That’ll never happen again.
Well, besides being the focus of this website, simple in it’s goal, there must be some therapeutic help that comes from writing and working on something like this. I have heard it said that making things for the benefit of others is like a form of philanthropy, and when you anticipate how others will be smiling, it gives a good feeling to the website author as well.
It might even be said to be addicting, to create pages of useful information about where to find various hospitals, and hopefully people looking for nursing jobs or the closest facility, will find this healing in some way.
