Pune Day-1

December 10, 2010 at 11:07 pm 10 comments

Ah! Fresh, yes it is! My first opportunity to explore a city as a tourist, I have done many others too but not purely as a holidayer it’s always been work-cum-little bit of fun. My first observations of a city I am here to discover:

  • It’s clean, green and traffic is not crazy 🙂
  • The first building I spotted read ‘Connaught Place’ 😉
  • Osho Ashram allows entry only if you pay Rs. 400 (Indians) & Rs. 900/- as registration fee for a meditation course… pass
  • You have to stand in queue to buy goodies and savouries at Kayani’s and Marzorin
  • But one thing which caught my eye and I couldn’t resist myself from capturing it


Read the sign board, just tells us some still leave in pre-independence era…(sic)

More in the coming days…special thanks to my friends Amol, Tang, Binit and Nitesh who took time out to tell me all about the must check out places and hopefully I will be meeting everyone except Tangy dearest…

    Pal, now write this down:
    1) Bring me some bags of Shewsburry from Kayani and some Chiwda
    2) Don’t forget to eat Sizzler at Tha Place
    3) There is also one more bakery. I am forgetting the name
    4) Why did you even think of the Osho Ashram.

    What a signboard!
    Connaught Place caught my attention too though its nothing like its namesake.
    The clean and green part – bingo. Pune definitely scores on that part.
