24/08/23 a day worth being remembered indeed”

says my recent posts’s insta caption, reflects the emotion and the happiness that surrounded me that very day!

Hey peeps, back here with one of the most interesting stories, I got to cherish this very week. It is the story of the City of Pune, The Oxford Of The East and the most beautiful place in Maharashtra indeed! The eighth largest metropolises in India, Pune is located in the state of Maharashtra. It is the second largest city in the state after Mumbai, and is an important city in terms of its economical and industrial growth. Once the hometown of Marathas and a centre of power for the Maratha Empire, the presence of the numerous edifices in Pune links to its rich and glorious past. The city leads as the ‘veritable heartland’ of cultural Maharashtra. Pune also has made its mark as the educational epicenter winning itself the sobriquet, ‘The Oxford of the East’. Not just that, it has a growing industrial hinterland, with information technology, engineering and automotive companies sprouting. The city is known for cultural activities like classical music, spirituality, theatre, sports, and literature. Pune is a pleasant travel getaway destination to spend a quiet holiday.

Undoubtedly, not here as a tourist, but as one of those students, who come here for their education. Whatsoever brought me here, I am truly thankful for being over here. So my story urges me to drag ur attention towards the fact that it is always commended that , when on a vacation, you must have a to-do-list, which places to visit, even till date, I do have experienced several such trips, where we proceeded according to the plans, the maps we had! But how about, losing all your directions, to just let yourself free, to wherever the breeze calls you! When some entirely unforeseen happenings, unanticipated days and unpredicted people embrace you, on a day which had to be a normal one, full of routinely acts and melancholy, then it marks to be the best thing indeed!

On this note, here comes my unexpected trips of the week: The day was a usual one, as programmed earlier. The first half was mostly spent in the college premises attending usual classes and monotonous sessions of syllabus. And by 2:30 we all got free, subsequently assembling at one of the friends’ place, sitting all together, making plans for a perfect saturday night, hitting some clubs or cafe, and as I told ya, the plans and plots might give the impression of being the perfect procedure of pursuing something, but at the end of the day, the unexpected events influence you more, surprise you better!

Magic happened , when out of nowhere, the scorching heat and the burning Sun, bid adieu to us and was chased by the beautiful winds and clouds, covering the whole city of Pune with windy chills and mesmerizing clouds. The beauty of this city is that it apparently reads our minds and make the weather change accordingly! Amidst this, I proposed my utter desire of giving visit to one of the main attractions of the place: Khdakwasla Dam. Khadakwasla Dam is a dam on the Mutha River 21 km (13 mi) from the centre of the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India.The dam created a reservoir known as Khadakwasla Lake which is the main source of water for Pune and its suburbs. In the vicinity of Khadakwasla Dam is the National Defence Academy (NDA), the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), the College of Military Engineering, Pune (CME, Dapodi) and Central Water and Power Research Station (CWPRS). A few kilometres to the south lies Sinhagad Fort; the twin dams of Panshet and Varasgaon, which mainly supply water for irrigation but also feed into Khadakwasla Lake, lie just 8 km (5.0 mi) due west of the backwaters of Khadakwasla Lake. And to describe its beauty, I would definitely admit that there is no any word suitable in my vocabulary to justify its beauty and the vibes it gives you in such a weather! It would be better for me to ask ya to visit the place and justify its beauty only with your sight, as somethings , even if described in words, stay dissatisfied! Before reaching the place, the ferocious velocity of the winds, suggest you of being in the vicinity of this place, so even if you think of shutting down the google maps, and just enjoy the ambience, it wont be a bad idea for sure! For a crazy soul like me, who just cant stay home, so frequently, who just wants to visit the whole world, this place was absolutely a bliss. Seemed like the day, tried to fulfill my cravings by bringing clouds of joy and fragrance of happiness and the weather was so so apt for that event and for me, for real. Utterly a slight sunny evening, with the sunshines peeping, there, from behind the clouds, where you could have easily spotted them, smiling for you. I got lucky enough, for thankfully, it didn’t rain cats and dogs for that day, as we over here are habituated to welcome rains every now and then. My whole squad was enchanted to by the weather, pairing it with the taste of babycorn, ice-creams, eventually adding more joy and happiness to the trip! At one moment, I just realized that the vibe of the clubs and the cafe are way too jolly, but the serenity of this place, provides you with a different sort of relief! By evening, we returned, by treating ourselves amply with coffee, cotton candies and the pure breeze of Khadakwasla!

The next day, again wasn’t supposed to keep me indoors as well, subsequently, the next night was a gorgeous girls night out, signifying the happiness of freedom and independence, to fly like beautiful butterflies, away from all the worries, on the glimmering streets of Pune! Got to visit the Desi Apetite, with my chums, enjoying punjabi thallis and all. As everyone says, good food make you feel good, I say, good people make you feel the best, wheresover you go! Playing games, having and roaming around with big big smiles!

Then came the next evening of the week, when again in the want of a perfect vibe we paid visit to the Cafe Demutasse, enjoying the special Ice Tea, vibing on the perfect playlist they had and enjoying the work we had, amidst that vibe!

The next evening was again the one, filled with calm and serene air! ISKCON NVCC Temple, Katraj, was our next place to be! It comes under the chain of the many ISKCON temples in India, which is the best place for the devotees to be in… It’s serene scenes are definitely gonna give you truckloads of joy and the way the devotees dance in their love for Krishna, is a sight to be captured forever!!

You people too must be having just perfect weeks or weekends like this! And if not, just wait for that unexpected events to surround you and surprise you obviously! Would definitely love to hear your story! See y’all, soonish!
