Early sunrays, omnipresent fog, soothing breeze, mid way on the mountain and greenery; I was relishing this experience. I felt the competition within myself, a contest with self to overcome the lethargy, a determination to reach the top and an urge for accomplishment. This place was welcoming my mood swings...this is the beauty of nature, you can be yourself and you can dip deep into your own thoughts.
Pune Railway Station
We met our group of travelers at Pune station to catch the Goa Express departing from Pune at 4:20 pm. I reached the station, met the group, and we waited. The train was delayed by 90 minutes. It showed up, finally, at 6 pm. In the meantime, we chatted among ourselves and got to know each other better. The majority of us were traveling solo on this trip. Once on the train, we all got comfortable in our seats. Everyone merged inside a single coupe, and we were off to playing Mafia. It was fun. After dinner, the games continued and we closed up at around 11 pm to hit the bed.
Called the Oxford of the East, Pune is a bubbling cosmopolitan city. A large student hub, this city loves art, culture and theatre. The Sahyadri hill range of the Western Ghats makes this destination ideal for hiking and wildlife spotting. A shower of rain brings the city alive. The Agha Khan Palace of Pune is a sprawling complex with emerald green gardens and sprawling lawns, perfect for a casual stroll. The Shaniwarwada is an ancient structure built by the Peshwas and the ruins of this marvellous architecture can still be seen in the city. Dedicated to the brave hearts of the Indian Army, the National War Museum is a popular tourist destination and houses militia paraphernalia. Those interested in meditation can get day passes from the Osho International Meditation Resort, which is very popular with tourists. Handcrafted beer, baked goodies at the Kayani Bakery on East Street and eateries such as Touche the Sizzler, Malaka Spice and Dario's will complete your trip here.
