“Amhi Punyache, Amhi Punekar!”, these words have an almost spiritual effect on us Punekars. Pune, where pride, glory, and honour do the tango together, where we smile at our history and laugh at the failed attempts made to change us. Yes, we’re stubborn, yes, we’re fixated on culture. However, it’s the only reason why we’re the cultural capital of Mahrashtra and one of the top metropolitan cities of India. And our pride in what we are is signified by one amazing item- the Puneri Pagadi!
May the force of the spicy rassa be with you.
