Pune has always been loved by people all over India particularly for the awesome weather, the IT boom, being one of the safest places for women and for the cosmopolitan home it has been, uniting different traditions, culture, people and their interests.
Coming across a Hot Chips outlet in Pune makes them go crazy happy. Especially the imported banana chips!
Initially you wonder how people survive here without dosa’s and idli’s. But once you get a bite of the local favorite ‘Wada Pav’ and ‘Misal Pav’ here, you probably get all your questions answered. That being said, there are tons of outlets here serving up some amazing, must try South Indian dishes as well! Reminds you of home sometimes.
Coming from the south, having crazy hot weather, we love the weather here. Trust me, we know what ‘hot’ means and we smile at the Punekars who think that the weather is too hot here.
There is the Joy Alukkas and RMKV in South which are like the Mother of Jewellery and Sarees. Wait a minute, I love this beautiful Paithani sari here too! Probably the sister of Sarees.
I wonder how Punekars fast for so long. But the sabudana khichdi they get to have during their fasting has compelled me to fast as well. And not to forget Sabudana Vada (another one from Vada family). *slurp*
Every fifth person you meet is a Keralite in Pune , keeping up the South vibe. We could probably have a mini Kerala here.
Here I can drive to one extreme of the city, hang out, travel back to another extreme and still reach home in time! Whereas, it would have taken me even more than an hour to travel just 5 kilometers in the South.
So much plus point in getting a job, if you are a South Indian. Because they are crowned with an extra language other than English, Marathi and Hindi!
The Ganpati celebration in Pune is probably the best one could ever witness in India and it indeed brings in the unity like never before! All festive seasons are celebrated with equal pomp and joy with perfect harmony!
No doubt, Pune , in spite of not being a capital, is becoming the most preferred place for the Indian youth!! And that is why most of the South Indians Love Pune!
