Pune trip

Well the riots during our trips seem to be getting more and more frequent. The first years got their trip cancelled to Delhi thanks to the protest against Delhi sealing drive. But we were lucky nothing happened in our case.

*The preparations
Ah, the preparations were pretty simple. packed my ag in half an hour and I was ready to go. But the actual preparations I mean here are different. My classmates weren't as excited as I was during the trip but they surely were preparing for the trip. I indicate this to many. My class is as desperate as a whore. I say this because I was also a bit disgusted at some friends falling for small baits and needed partners for 4 days. Enjoyment doesn't always mean having a partner. And come on! Don't you have a choice??

The preparations came in the form of 4-5 more couples getting formed... so shocking that I didn't know what to say and kept my mouth shut. By the way I'm always vocal about my feelings on such issues.

*The journey
The journey was pretty good, late as usual and was fun. I sat with all my friends throughout the journey. Had amazing fun with everyone, sang songs, Himesh was popular as well, my walkman phone was also handy and I clicked amazing photos which I'll show you now.

We travelled for about 4 hours and reached Pune with a lot of excitement and Pune looked pretty commercial and cool. I didn't excpect so much from Pune actually, thought it would be some small town or something but the infrastructure was better planned than Mumbai. The roads were wider and as heard about the bikers were truly unpredictable, the signals were not observed well and this was a major cause of accidents. By the way one of my friend's father has been a victim to such a disaster.

*The check in
The most controversial part was here. We reached on time but weren't alloted good rooms at first. The rooms were dirty like anything and stinking. Our earlier trip to Silvassa was heaven like because of the three star hotel with pool et all. Moreover this time around we didn't get A.C's in our room also. Only some of the rooms got this privilege. So temporarily we were told to pack our luggage in one room as we got just 3 rooms. We were supposed to get possession of the rooms when we came back in the evening.
Later in the evening we had to go to another hotel nearby because the rooms weren't empty. We were pretty frustrated because dragging the luggage around was not an activity we enjoyed.
So late at night when we came back from dinner we had to stay away from all the fun(gals). we slept early as we had to report very early in the morning the next day.

*The visits
We visited the best of the places and had real good fun all the time. the most amazing one was on the first day itself when we visited Sinhagad fort and climbed almost 8 kilometres. Had amazing fun and the most beautiful pics ever over there. The pics were almost like we were some professionals getting the best of everything, the weather was superb and the ambience amazing. Nature was at its best exclsively for us, the rookie photographers.

I'll show you in my next post

We had amazing fun during the three and a half days we spent there. visited almost the full Pune with the same enthusiasm. The television studios, film libraries were exquisite and the form of editing we saw was an eye opener. Doordarshan, radio 90.4 and what not. We are almost professionals with the camera now.

The fun at nights was not less at all. we had discussions, played a lot, played truth and dare, cards, roamed around the hotel, went about swinging in the gardens, singing songs and all, had pep talks and watched tv and movies together. The couples were as usual getting cosy with each other. Most of them were cute while others disgusted me.
