Once a Punekar, Always a Punekar

http://sumarplant.ro/franciye/1072 It’s a small city. There seem to be no new people. There’s not enough growth. It’s not fast enough. It’s too laid back. There are no big companies. There are no opportunities…

We’ve heard it all when it comes to Pune. Have you noticed how everybody is bored and wants to move out of Pune, but nobody ever does? It’s because no matter who you are, the city of Pune grows on you, and there’s no denying that. I realised that from just a short while spent in Mumbai and a bit of travel here and there. Once you go Punekar, there’s just no going back.

You start to miss the weather…

When it pours in Mumbai, it neue freundin kennenlernen just pours! It isn’t the soft, pleasant rain you welcome while sipping on to your cup of joe millionaire dating show chai by your window. NOPE! It’s stuck on the streets, trying to find a rickshaw, getting splashed by drivers in a hurry, and coming home defeated and drenched. After that, you’re stuck indoors for several days because there’s no way you’re going out in click here to investigate that. In Pune? It’s sunshine the very next day!

You miss the traffic…

Yes, Pune’s traffic is definitely getting worse by the day. But for now, enjoy the fact that it’s not as bad as other metro cities. The fact that it doesn’t take me an entire day to get from one end of my city to the other is a relief! If you think Pune is too small, thus boring, try living in a city where you’re stuck in one internet dating portugal area for the most part, because travel? No way!

You miss the weekend getaways…

It’s never going to be this easy to go away for a day-trip or a one night stay somewhere in the mountains or a hill-station. Not only are weekend getaways much further in other metro cities, but it’s a bigger pain to navigate to the edge of the city itself!

You miss the laidback attitude…

You know the people in office, who are always in a rush, always busy, but barely do anything? Yep, that’s what it’s like everywhere else. Mumbai actually felt slow to me, because getting anywhere took 2 hours in itself, yet people were always in a hurry. It also takes up about seven hours of your life to party and you only head home when your faces will fall off from weariness. In Pune, you’re out of work, partied out to the max, and in bed, all from 9 to 1!

You actually miss the littleness of the city and knowing everyone…

No matter how much you tell yourself that Pune is too small, there’s something comforting in knowing people wherever you go. In other cities, with such great physical distances, there are even greater distances between the people who live in them. Because the bigger the city, the smaller you feel, and the more lost you are.

I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll forever be a Punekar, thank you.
