The residents of Pune breathed a sigh of relief when the long-proposed Metro project was finally approved, sanctioned and commenced in December 2016. However, it seems like those aren’t the only plans in store for our beloved city. The next 5-6 years will see investments of Rs. 75,000 Crores for a 3rd Metro line, a new airport, and a Smart City project, amongst other upgrades.
It was a fine Pune evening; a slight drizzle and a delicate breeze that carried the waft of delicious food. It was the same evening that a few Punekars met at Café 1730. The table was aligned with especially crafted delicacies from end-to-end. We could go on and on about the food served, I mean you’ve read our #PunekarReviews, right? But this time we’ve decided to give it a bit of a twist and let you hear directly from our foodies! Here’s what they’d recommend.

You have absolutely zero idea just how difficult it is to find good roommates. Sometimes you get lucky but on other instances, the Roommate Curse hits you. Oh, how I’ve suffered.
Did you know that the smell of the first rain after a long, dry and warm period is called petrichor? I didn’t, at least not until Buzzfeed told me. What I did know is how it made me feel.
Dear Diary, I think I’m done with the dirty dishes under my bed and going on a treasure hunt for clean clothes. I need to move.
When you think about getting out for a nice dinner, how do you pick the place? Your checkboxes will probably be good food, drinks, service and ambience. With so many places to pick from, so much competition, just good food doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s definitely the first checkbox, but there’s got to be something more. Do you agree? Here’s a place that ticks all of your checkboxes, and how!
Dear Diary, college life is NOT all fun and games. The customs are strange here and so is the concept of punctuality. Elders must be respected, but don’t expect any ounce of respect back from them. My future is pretty much dependent on how strong my memory is and that’s a bit freaky.
