Often referred to as the Oxford of the East, Pune is a bustling hub of multifarious people and activities and is in the contention for rapidly growing into one of the top metropolitan cities in the country. When someone says Pune, you immediately think of a laidback, yet lively town with a young and vivacious crowd that welcomes every visitor with an open heart.  However, there is a lot more to Pune than just its youthful vigour. Behind the modern commercialized façade of Pune lies the roots of ancient Poona, which gave birth to the Maratha Empire and had a very crucial role to play in the history of India’s independence. Pune is a city that perfectly blends modernity with tradition, and it deserves the title of being the cultural capital of Maharashtra.
