Moi Back, Pune Diary concludes.

December 18, 2010 at 4:09 pm 13 comments

After an amazing holiday I am back to Dilli, the temperature has dipped but I am waiting for that teeth clattering winter to set in.

During my last few days in Pune I got an opportunity to explore the countryside of Maharashtra (see pic)

Had lots of nariyal pani, panipuri, theplas, poha, bhel that my  craving for all this grub has been satiated for at least a few months :).

It is a people friendly city, not a single autowala refused to ferry us and I paid by the meter. Even climbed 103 stairs to reach the Parvati Temple on the hilltop all the huffing-puffing proved to be worth the effort because from here you get an aerial view of the city, see here.

Connected with some old friends not just mine but my mum’s too. She was ecstatic to meet her childhood pal after 35 years!

Would I go back? Of course I will, so much more to be explored!

Apols: Dearest Dr. D couldn’t carry back your fav Coconut ice cream :(. Pats carried back a box of Ginger cookies exclusively for you which got hijacked in the morning itself…

    The first pic proves nothing. How do we know it was the country side of Maharashtra. Bovines are found everywhere in India. What if you had had this pic clicked in Delhi…..hmmmm???

    And about the cookies….aaaarrrghhh… you owe me another treat.

    P.S. Nice that you enjoyed your vacation. 🙂

    Glad your trip was great. Cities and villages of Maharashtra have a fervent posture that attracts one too many. Pune is sort of addictive in many ways.

    Good to hear you had a great vacation. 😀

    Pune is a lovely city and is the Parvati temple you were speaking abt chaturshrungi?

    I want to eat loadsa Bhel and Pani puri too after reading this 😦

    Hey where is this temple? The view looks similar to the one from the Chaturshrungi mountain.

  • 12. Mayur  |  January 13, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    People, it is Parvati temple and not Chatushrungi. It is near Sahakar Nagar off the Pune-Satara road and not Deccan. 🙂

    Amazing and peaceful place. I forgot to ask you pal, did you visit that Peshva museum atop Parvati?

    • 13. delhizen  |  January 13, 2011 at 3:24 pm

      thanks for rescuing me there 😉

      I did! visit the museum 🙂
