The entire 36 days in Pune recently were made so much more pleasurable thanks to the weather, the conducive roads for walks and runs, and the most pleasurable company of Milind who would take me on his walks. One day we would walk past Daharnukar colony, Mahatma Society and touch the highway connecting Bombay and Bangalore, now Mumbai and Bengaluru. Another day we would go into the gullies of Karve Nagar and I would get lost in the many turns and twists. One day he took me up the hill near the Mahatma Society, the one which Satish and I normally take when we would visit Pune together. After Milind left for the USA, I stuck to the straight and narrow road that led to the Mumbai-Bengaluru highway. The walks are beautiful with lovely trees, dimpled sunlight and a great feel.
