Where is itThe factory and the farm are located in one of the most popular areas of Pune, Koregaon Park.Why should you visit
Explore Koregaon Park –KP as its known has a few reputed addresses to its credit- the German Bakery, Osho Ashram, and my personal favourite Malaka Spice. You will spot people from different nationalities rub shoulders here. KP has some of the finest experimental restaurants, pubs in the city. A good time to visit would be in the evening. And yes, don’t forget to pick a pair of the famous ‘Osho chappals’.Go for a ‘Hurda Party’/ ‘harvest @ the farm’- If you are lucky, get invited to a ‘Hurda party’ at a friend’s farm in November/December. And that’s not tough, considering most people still own huge acres of farms in their villages. Before harvesting of grains like jowar, wheat, bajra, bonfires are lit and ‘Hurda’ is prepared with chutneys/curd/jaggery. The hosts will usually accompany it with some bhakris and ‘bharli vangi’. The time is meant for bonding with friends and family.Indulge in the vibrant food scene– One of the most vibrant street food cities, you can find everything from ‘Bhel’, ‘Vada pav’, ‘Piyush’, ‘Kanda Bhaji’, ‘Pohe’ to the cosmo ‘Kacchi Dabeli’, ‘Dhoklas’, ‘Sandwiches’, ‘Chaats’, ‘Davanagere Dosas’ and ‘Pizzas’ here. For the more authentic Maharashtrian breakfast/ snack, visit Janaseva at Lakshmi Road, Shreyas/Durvankur/Rasoi/Asha Dining Hall for vegetarian ‘thalis’. Pune is a delight for Malvani food lovers too with dime a dozen restaurants in Sadashiv Peth.This post is an ode to Pune, and dedicated to all my ‘Zabari’ friends from/in Pune. I am glad our paths crossed in this wonderful city. Much love always!This trip was first published on https://thetunictraveller.wordpress.com/.
8. The first date with your beloved has to happen at Koregaon Park.
OSHO ASHRAM ! For me there is not a better place if you are interested in meditation, sharing with beautiful people and participating in growth seminars. The physichal beauty of the campus is simply stunning, the food is great clean, and you can choose from continental, indian to macrobiotic. You have meditations every one hour and you can choose from energetic and cathartic to passive and quiet. Then you have a whole range of workshops and courses if you are interested in going deeper into you psyche and exploring your hug ups and emotional troubles. In the nights you have a variety of events ranging from parties to theater plays.
