A rant about how PATHETIC #Pune airport is.

1. My parents are arriving at Pune later tonight. The only direct connection from Kochi to Pune happens to be at this ungodly hour. Other option was to take a hopping flight via Bengaluru and have them wait at the airport.
2. Since this is an ungodly hour, I will go to airport to pick them (didn’t want to trouble the driver who has his plate full tomorrow). Now Pune airport has 2 parking areas, both OUTSIDE the airport.
Yes, you have to LEAVE the exit gate to go to the Parking. Both require passengers to cross the road.

3. One parking area is a 3-4 min walk from the arrival gate. No problem about that. But the road is in a pathetic condition and dragging a luggage laden trolley is a nightmare

There's activism.... and then there's Puneri activism 😉

This gentleman is apparently 'protesting' outside the 'world famous' Bedekar Misal near Laxmi Road - asking for 'Paav' instead of 'Bread Slices' (which Bedekar serves with Misal).


(photo via WhatsApp) #Pune
Okay...let's do a poll 😉

What do you prefer with your #Misal?

#MisalPaav #MisalBreadSlice
While folks debate on 'Paav' or 'Bread Slice', here's a list of #Pune #Misal old restaurants:

Vaidya Uphar Gruha, Raviwar Peth (1911)

Shrikrishna Bhuvan, Tulshibaug (1941)

Bedekar, Narayan Peth (1955)

Shri Misal, Ramnath, Bapat...1950s/60s?

Any other old ones?

#SuicideAwareness I very nearly didn’t make it to 2020. I don’t even know how I’m still here. I need to thank those who helped me up when I fell down.This is a thread about how grateful I am for being alive today.
From 2016 to 2019, I was stalked, sexually harassed, threatened and intimidated by a man from my society where my family and I were renting an apartment because it was close to my college. I was pursuing law.
In early 2018, after the man attempted to run me over with his car and later forcibly grabbed my hand and tried to touch me, my mother and I decided to take action. I was afraid but I knew we had to do something. Ignoring him had not worked.

Thread- Wonders of the Deccan Landscape. A 66 million year river of lava...exhumed!

On Pune Nasik Road, turn east at Ale phata. Look for Mandohol Dam. And a ridge named Mhasoba Zap.

Can you spot the lava river?
Basalt lava is less viscous and can flow for long distances. It can get channeled along a preexisting valley or follow lows in the landscape, forming a sinuous lava channel. Pic from USGS captures a lava channel from recent eruption in Hawaii.
The view in this pic at Mhasoba Zap is looking upslope. The sinuous ridge you see is the exhumed lava channel. It stands out as a ridge about 100 meters above the adjacent plains.

. @Dev_Fadnavis need not give an certificate of how #Ecofriendly he is to anyone

Planted 23 crore trees already

Set up 24-hour toll free helpline 1926 #HelloForest

Created #GreenArmy, a body of dedicated volunteers to plant trees

U can register here
#ForestSurveyofIndia has declared #Maharashtra as the ONLY state which has registered a GROWTH in #forestCover in past years

Not just #forests, but trees outside jungles have also seen a spike
253 m2 rise in #trees
82 km2 rise in #mangroves

Survival rate of the 23 crore trees planted

2016 72 %
2017 80 %
2018 85 %

Impressive, isn’t it?

More focus has been on areas of the state with LESS forest cover like Marathwada, Western Maharashtra & Vidarbha

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I wish to update everyone on the role we play in early detection and treatment for women affected by this terrible disease.

#breastcancer #October #breastcancerawareness #Pune #dentist #cancerscreening
As part of my training at the University of Pennsylvania, we were taught the role of regular Oral Cancer Screening to be carried out at each visit.

The mandible is the most common site for metastasis aka secondary spread of Breast Cancer.
As such we contribute both towards primary diagnosis and ruling out recurrence. A simple panoramic xray is generally sufficient in most cases.

If a patient is to undergo Chemotherapy, it becomes very important to eliminate all potential sources of infection.

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.

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.…
"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."…

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

See this:…

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

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.…

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
