I name my travel diary as S-PLORE India, to make it more memorable and to cover it in a single GO. The S-concept helped me travel in a unique fashion way within my country. It was not easy to traverse in S Shape by relying only on flights, so trains and cars was taken for major coverage.

Journey begins from Pune...
