Just 5 minutes distance only
So you're walking the hot sunny road, a tattered rough guide in your hand, trying to figure out what all those marathi/ indian letters mean. You finally see someone who looks like he might speak english. "excuse me, do you know where i can find the ..." "oh yes madame, you keep walking straight. just five minutes distance only". Its been half an hour, no sign of my destination yet. Lesson 1: Five minutes = not the universal conotation of five minutes as understood the world over.
"2 hour drive"
This is the cultural city of india, also the land of peshwa.
today due to the infrastructure between mumbay and pune, the travel time between these cities takes around 2 hours. previously when i was graduating from this city it used to take more than 4 hours to travel.
a city with a deep history within itself. a must visit
I guess most people who travel from outside india, would be heading to pune for osho. well osho - rajanesh, has been a spiritual guru for a lot of people around the worl. just enter the area (koregoan park) and you feel the nirvana around you. a very green and lush surrounding with a superb landscaped element is surrounding the ashram
"road and traffic"
the one thing today that comes to ones mind is traffic. yes pune like most cities in mumbai has become an infotech city. people here earlier used to travel in by-cycles or horse back. but today its been taken over by the mopeds and scooters. so you will find a lot of pullution during winter.
