Pune, now called the Oxford of the East was once
a haven for the Britishers. The reason being its
conducive and pleasant climate. Pune is considered
a mini hillstation and has a tolerable climate throughout
the year as compared to its neighbour, Mumbai!
The summers can get a little harsh and in daytime
temperatures can soar upto 40°C at times, with evenings
bringing in relief! Main Street, (i.e M.G.Road)
is packed with hoards of people having ice creams
and milkshakes to shake off the heat!The festivals
of 'Holi' and 'Rangpanchmi' is not something one
must miss, with umpteen 'Holi' bashes with the crowd
going berserk, splashing coloured water on each
other to the beats of music! The innumerable swimming
pools all over the city can bring in relief from
the heat too!
day, children can make good use of their
free time by attending the number of hobby
classes the city has to offer, ranging from
cooking, flower arrangement to candle making!
the outskirts of Pune are a treat to the
eyes during these times with its lush green
fields and cool winds blowing!
The months of November and December are welcomed
with biting cold and so the enthusiastic ones who
want to celebrate the 'New Year', not to forget
Christmas in Pune, must make sure that they have
a good supply of warm party wears. Or risk wearing
stringy outfits if blessed with immunity towards
cold! What's more, these parties are on the outskirts
so enjoy the drive and the pulsating music!
