One fine Saturday mOrnIng!!!

After long time got a chance to sneak in around Pune,, was Busy a bit meanwhile..anyways.. Planned for Panchgani & Mahabaleshwar.. was not actually a plan till the time I started...
                                          One fine Saturday mOrninG!!!
started by all gearing up early in the morning.. towards Panchgani.. form Pune to NH4  Pune-Bangalore Highway.. Enjoyed the journey in the morning struggling with chilly cold atmosphere and cold waves...
Stopped by... for quick snacks as all f us were starving especially for morning Tea by roadside small shop on NH4.. after 60 kms hard cold ride on bike.. "itna to banta he yaar"
Stooped by ghat after VAI for just a quick sneak in of the views of the city from the ghat..... 
and stopped also; because of slow traffic on the ghat due to big containers
1st view point of the Panchgani
this is the famous Wilson point in Mahabaleshwar.. gives the full mountain view..... and for every point we have a "good description" by Anand prakash which is not suitable to write in travelog ;)
Lodwick point, Mahabaleshwar
Along Midhun and Anand Prakash

We have completed around 290kms journey from Pune-Panchgani-Mahabaleshwar and back to Pune in a day.. Riding highway was really fun and enjoyed the journey..nice place and nice way to explore it.

Fortunate visit to Mahatma Gandhi's Memorial

Today fortunately, I visited to Aga Khan's Palace Pune.  I was not meant to go there, but as I mentioned  "Fortunately" with two of my friends, before the eve of Independence day, it was a great experience to visit to the pillar of Indian Independence's place, where he spent more than two years(1942-44) of his life and started the 'Quit India' movement.

It was really inspiring to see thoughts(written on the wall and through paintings) of Mahatma Gandhi.
I always think, how can "One" man can be the voice of whole nation and that too that much powerful which shake the unrest-ed Sun of British Empire. By seeing his thought and simplicity of his life I got a little idea of how people are inspired by the greatest voice of the Nation.
                          Mahatma Gandhi was living here
Today I got to know why people was calling a barrister Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi as Mahatma Gandhi.
A man who had given everything to nation should be treated so.

People forgot about Gandhi, as do I. But today when I got chance to get close to Mahatma and his ideology,
I really felt great and felt proud to having Mahatma as Indian. He lived his life in simplicity.
                     Cloths and things used by Mahatma Gandhi
A Man who lived his whole life for India and Indian flag
                  A flag worth living for (and dieing too)  used for Quit India Movement
I felt great and inspired by visiting the Place of Mahatma Gandhi's memorial and get along with his thoughts.
              Mahatma Gandhi's Memorial also known as AGA KHAN's Palace Pune
If you get chance to visit the place do visit it, regardless u like visiting memorials or not, you will feel inspired.
Knowing own roots is always good.
