  1. I got opportunity to visit this place. This is 14 km from Hadapsar towards diva ghat. Built around 1720 AD, Mastani Lake or Talav has a fascinating history attached to it. The lake was actually called the Wadki Talav. The name was later changed after the two love birds, Bajirao and Mastani kept visiting the spot and it was often considered to be Mastani Bai’s bathing spot. It is believed that the lake on the outskirts of Pune was frequently visited by Bajirao Peshwa and his second wife, Mastani when they went horseback riding. They would stop and take a swim in

  2. The kids doing their own thing. The Sequel (foreground ) guarding his fort The Prequel (background ) doing what she does best - living in the moment. The sequel built a campfire but it rained. When the only Indian who has scaled Everest Sumit solo says ‘it’s only a trek ‘ , note that his definition might vary from your’s I did many things that I did not plan to or thought was capable of - scaled the cliff , cane down rappelling and got to the road trekking. The team is fantastic ! They are very encouraging and the kindest strangers I had a chance to hang

  3. Nothing can beat combination of Monsoon and WesternGhats. Your pictures make them even more eye pleasing. Greenery is unreliably good. Pune outskirts has plenty of good options.

  4. Yes, India is not ready for EV adoption yet. Imo, Govt gets only 28% Gst , and 14% Road tax as one time tax in purchase of a vehicle. But the taxes on fuel is a continuous revenue stream for both central and state govt. They only promote to an extent. And that too just for the sake of it, I don't think govt has real intention for this transition. Instead of govt, private players has to step up in building the infrastructure.

  6. Sharing a post by Radhika Kundur: History of Gandikota from Wiki Gandikota is a village and historical fort on the right bank of the Penna river, 15 km from Jammalamadugu in Kadapa district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The fort was the center of power for various dynasties, such as the Kalyani Chalukyas, Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas, and the Golconda Sultanate. Gandikota was the capital of Pemmasani Kamma Nayakas for more than 300 years. Pemmasani Ramalinga Nayaka constructed the huge fort at Gandikota with 101 towers replacing the pre

  11. This is the situation in global IT Hub. In our country we will see some impact pretty soon. It is not business as usual my friends. Lot of middle class investors who will shy away. Few people I know migrated to their home states recently.

  16. I have always felt that electric vehicle revolution in India , would be through Two wheeler than Four wheeler. Scooters and bikes are the base of commute , not just in urban congregations but all over India, a fact easily deduce-able from the sheer volume of sales. In the Fy 2019, the number of two wheelers sold in India is approximately five times the number of four wheelers. ( 21.1 Million units vs 4.4 Million Units). And with 3.15 million units sold in the year 2019 , Honda Activa is the reigning monarch. So , this EV day , i want to explore the EV options who can challenge Honda Activa an

  18. TATA can install their own charging stations. Like how Tesla did in US. Govt. should slash the tax on EVs completely. Then manufactures will start pushing EV products.

  19. Beautifully drafted post @Gowtham. Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. I’m really hoping to see the EVs evolve well into the Indian market. It sure was a good launch by TATA with Nexon but we’re also hoping to see that same amount of enthusiasm and effort from the Government by encouraging the EV market.

  21. Excellent post Radhika.. Thank you for compiling such an informative post for the record @Gowtham. Adventure sports is something new that we are getting to see around Gandikota and this place always demanded such activities. This place is best for rock climbing and rappelling.. Would love to see more information about this place. Also, I am scared to imagine this place growing commercial..

  26. We guys still have to wait until the EV market emerges partially atleast. Few models by TVS, Hero Electric and Emflux seemed promising when compared to the other brands during my visit to the Delhi AutoShow this year.

  27. Interesting post @LoneRanger.. Love to throw in my views to this thread. Correct me if I’m wrong.. I have been anticipating a lot about the influx of EV market in India and I was not surprised to see the spread of EVs during my AutoShow visit in Delhi Early this year.. Multiple brands have surely forayed their vision on EVs introduction into the market but in reality, I felt the country is still not ready for it. It is still in its development stage and I’m glad that government has also started promoting it though building of public Electric charging points are still due for

  28. Update : Due to the long wait times, Bajaj Chetak has stopped taking orders. (Pune and Bengaluru). Im surprised to find that a company like Bajaj , with years of experience , instead of scaling up , is stopping bookings in the cities of Bengaluru and Pune. whats your opinion/comment on this??

  31. Exactly , they should realize that India is a price sensitive market. And , they should try to get profits from volume and not margins. Never heard "Honda" and "Pathetic" in the same sentence before. Shows the refinement and ride quality offered by EV's. That's exciting. 1000 Kms EV trip. Hope in India too we will have similar infrastructure. Just like filling stations , EV chargers stations has to be set up with local private partnership. The break time is very nominal. even without a Tesla(Specially travelling with women and kids), we take

  32. Thank you for sharing the wonderful post. I am also looking for a EV scooter for my dad. But he is reluctant to move away from Activa. Ather looks promising but the pricing is unbelievable. If they want to be Tesla of scooters in India, they need to bring down pricing. Pricing need to come down. Electric is future without any doubt. Until I drove Tesla, Im not keen on EVs. Once we drive any electric vehicle, combustion engines feel very crude. Power on EV feels very addictive. I am using my BIL's Tesla from the past three months. Last week I had to short-gun o
