Check out the Virgo sign. Pic taken from the new bridge near Kumbharwada. #Pune #MulaMutha #Monsoon #waterlevels #nadikathi #heavyrains
And here’s the sign itself! Also the 180 degrees view! You can see the blue pillars of the new bridge through the pillars of the middle one.

Did you know that Lokmanya Tilak, Gopal Krishna Gokhale and Maharishi Karve were all Mathematics Professors as well?

The three of them taught math at the Fergusson College in Pune.
Interestingly, it was the disagreements between Tilak and Gokhale that led to the former's resignation from the faculty.

Gokhale had to 'recruit' his college batchmate, Dhondo Keshav Karve (who was teaching in Mumbai) to the Fergusson College to fill in to teach Math, in Pune.
Karve then settled in Pune, and went onto start the Hingne Home for Widows, Women's School and the SNDT Women's University here.

#ECHS #Kirkee #Pune
Very Good Doctor.
Cumbersome Registration Procedure.
Inefficient Patient Processing.
Some prescribed medicines not available in dispensary.
BP Machine at reception showed erratic readings and one with doctor not working.
Polyclinic Management needs improvement
#ECHS
Good intentions but poor implementation on ground.
Booked Doctor Appointment Online on #SouthernStar ECHS App at #Kirkee #Pune Polyclinic.
Reception clerk clueless about ECHS Online Booking Facility.
So - stood in queue for paper slip.
@adgpi
Please implement #DigitalIndia
#ECHS seems to have adequate infrastructure.
It is the management that needs to be improved.
Since ECHS is for #Veterans of 3 Services - why not have a CEO/MD from Navy who may be able to improve matters with fresh ideas.
Then - have MD from AirForce.

Today is Swatantryaveer Savarkar's 136th Janmatithi.

जयोस्त्तु ते

"जयोस्त्तु ते श्रीमहन्मंगले। शिवास्पदे शुभदे्
स्वतंत्रते भगवति। त्वामहं यशोयुतां वंदे"

(Victory to you, O Auspicious One, the Munificent and Holy!
O Goddess of Freedom, I seek you blessings for success)
सावरकर माने तेज,
सावरकर माने त्याग,
सावरकर माने तप,
सावरकर माने तत्व,
सावरकर माने तर्क,
सावरकर माने तारुण्य,
सावरकर माने तीर,
सावरकर माने तलवार।

-अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी जी

(Do listen to this great speech by Atal Ji about Savarkar, from 1980s: )
Folks in #Pune can visit Savarkar's room at the Fergusson College, where he studied from 1902-1905.

The room has a small memorial, and it is open for visitors on his birth and death anniversaries. Here are some photos from my visit there, a few years ago.

@ani7709 Nagpur - BJP

Although there may not be lead as much as last time for BJP, BJP is in comfortable position to win this seat.

Nana Patole uplifted spirit of INC cadre as he fought against heavyweight minister Gadkari. Gadkari couldn't move out of Nagpur for a while in this phase.
@ani7709 Bhandara-Gondiya - BJP

A neck to neck contest. BJP put a good fight in by poll held previously. Due to Nana Patole moved to Nagpur to contest, BJP somewhat got a relief to make this seat workout.
Both BJP & NCP put fresh candidates. It is going to be a cadre vs cadre fight.
@ani7709 Gadchiroli-Chimur - BJP
No any other CM has visited Gadchiroli as much as Devendra Fadnavis did. Development work has put edge to BJP in this seat.

Pandurang Kane was notable Indologist and Sanskrit scholar. He received Bharat Ratna in 1963 for his scholarly work that spanned more than 40 years of active research that resulted in 6500 pages of History of Dharmaśāstra.

Today is his 139th Janmatithi.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandurang…
"His monumental work entitled the "History of the Dharmasastra", published in five volumes in the twentieth century, is an encyclopedia of ancient social laws and customs. This enables us to study the social processes in ancient India.""
"His output in the form of writings across the three languages of English, Sanskrit and Marathi spans nearly 15,000 pages.

‘History of Poetics’ was one of his other great books." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandurang…

Did you know that the National Highways nomenclature in India changed nearly a decade back?

See this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_N…

Note, Google Maps uses the new numbers. The new system uses odd numbers for East-West, and even numbers for North-South highways.

1/n
Compared the older system, some new roads have been added into the National Highway list. Also, many highways have been extended.

E.g. Earlier NH4 ran from Mumbai to Chennai. Now the old NH4 and NH8 have been combined into NH48: Delhi-Mumbai-Chennai. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_…

2/n
In #Pune, we had NH4 (Mumbai/Bangalore), NH50 (Nashik) and NH9 (Solapur-Hyderabad).

The new numbers are NH48, NH60 (extended from Nashik to Dhule), NH65 (extended from Solapur-Hyderabad to Vijaywada).

The old NH17 (Mumbai-Goa) is now NH66 and runs to Thiruvananthapuram

Dear @Uber_India
I have observed that some Uber Drivers in Pune have the habit of speaking on mobile phones while driving.
Please stop this dangerous practice.
@Uber_Support @Uber

#Uber #Pune #Ethics
Uber must intruct its drivers not to speak on mobile phones while driving.
They have long personal conversations on mobile phone with friends/relatives throughout the journey.
Request @Uber_India to stop this dangerous practice
@Uber_Support @Uber
#Uber #Pune
It is not the duty of customers to educate Uber Drivers that they must not speak on mobile phones while driving.
Uber must ensure that Uber Drivers follow Road Safety Rules
Uber must train Uber Drivers in Road Safety and Traffic Discipline
