Land of Sea & Surf - Bondi


Home away from home ...

Our first house in Sydney. A very helping Indian lady agreed to take us as house guests on the request of a friend of my cousin's. Long trail really. It's amazing how you find people and develop new friends.

Glimpses of Sydney ..


Pune ...

Pune has been a home to me for almost a decade now. Young and vibrant, the  city always welcomes everybody. Over the years I've visited many places around Pune - known for it's historical forts and temples. Even within Pune, there is this range of hills - known by various names at various locations. Vanadevi in Warje area, law college 'tekdi' or MIT 'tekdi' near MIT which ends at Chatushrungi temple. I've never been able to traverse it as a whole from the top but I've climbed it at various points like Vanadevi or law college and just this week at Chatushrungi.

Early mornings in pune, and specially sundays are really nice - hardly any traffic on the roads. We reached Chatushrungi at 7:30 am. There is a limited parking area which was thankfully empty. The temple and nearby area has been renovated and made more user friendly. There are benches and rest places at specific points while climbing up. The premises is kept very clean

The actual temple at the top…
