Pune is the seventh largest metropolis in India and the second largest in the state of Maharashtra. It was known as Punyanagari in old time. It is situated 560 metres (1,837 feet) above sea level on the Deccan plateau at the right bank of the Mutha river. Pune city is the administrative headquarters of Pune district and was once the center of power of the Maratha Empire. Pune existed as a town since 847 AD.

In the 18th century, Pune became the political centre of Indian subcontinent, as the seat of Peshwas who were the prime ministers of the Maratha Empire. Pune is considered the cultural capital of Maharashtra. (From Wikipedia)

Leave apart the technical; Pune is a city where you fall in love the moment you step in. Aakash could feel the welcoming warmth as soon as he entered the city. The best part is, it’s the month of August and Pune is lavishly green. It is something which one can never explain in words. Have a look yourself!

Green

Rains!

Chai!

Pakoda!

Pune! And

Aakash!

That was the status which got him few hundred likes and comments for the day. The magic of Pune is that there is no magic, yet it seems to be magical. The beauty, the culture, the decency and everything makes it lovable. Aakash called up his mom and updated about everything. Right from the snacks he had to his new stay place.

He just looked over the bus he needs to catch to his office and visited few places around. There is still a day to relax before he joins his workplace. It was good to see all the buses having bells to signal the bus halt. Everyone has to get inside from the back side and get down from the front. It is something which you don’t see in any the other states. Standing in queue to get tickets, is something which is generally read only in books apart from Pune!

Aakash was in central bus stand, got inside a crowded bus an there he saw an angel! He could not stop staring at her in bus for she was so much cute. Aakash could not take his eyes off her. The white dress she wore made her look the cutest in the world. If you think here begins the love story, Nopes! The angel was 5 year old kid.

Before the office begins, aakash learnt this first Marathi word, “Thamba”, which means “stop”, which was definitely needed to stop the shared autos which were highly used mode of transportation apart from bus service.

 “Thambaa!”
