Description : Republic Day always reminds me of the events which used to happen back in school. The flag hoisting and the national anthem have given me so many memories and a feeling of nostalgia. Young kids singing and dancing with hearts filled with patriotism still makes me smile and make me want to go back to school life.
Hi Friends I am Indrajit a budding environment engineer. I have this passion for travelling and adventure sports. One of my friends who is studying engineering with me is from Pune in Maharashtra and he recommended that I must come to Pune and see the magical city at least once in my life.
On his insistence I accompanied him to Pune. We went to his house where I was treated with some delicious Maharashtrian delicacies including pooran poli. He took me around the city. We went to Sarad Baug, Sinhagad Fort, Dagdu Sheth Ganpati Temple. He then suggested that I try my hand on paragliding in Pune. I jumped at the offer as I love adventure sports. We decided to leave for Kamshet early in the morning next day.
Amazing activity of paragliding in Pune
Next day in the wee hours we started for Kamshet on my friend’s bike. We went to Rangoli hotel in Kamshet for paragliding in Pune. There were two packages. In the first one you get to fly in the air along with an instructor for 30 minutes in a two seater. You get to click pictures of the beautiful scenes from the top.
In the second package you can choose the type of ride you want that is classical, instructional and acrobatic. If you are an adventure freak then choose the acrobatic option. That is what we did and oh my God! What an amazing experience it was to do paragliding! I later got to know that they also have three day introductory course. Since next day I had to return back home I was not able to enroll for it. But I have decided that someday when I visit Pune again I will enroll for this amazing paragliding introductory course.
We returned back to the city and my friend took me to this amazing Vaishali restaurant and treated me to some of the best south Indian food. I bought some sweets and the famous Pune Bhakarwadi for my folks back home. Next day I boarded the train with a promise that I will surely visit this amazing city again.

Description : Swami Vivekananda is a well know philosopher, saint and a follower of the guru Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Very few know that his birthday is celebrated as the national youth day. This is because Swami Vivekananda’s ideologies were logical yet spiritual and this way of thinking is ideal for the present generation to succeed.
