The following three are less famous but worth a visit or two.

This topic was suggested again yours truly, for the weekly Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where currently nine of us write on the same topic every Friday.  I hope that you enjoyed my contribution to that effort.  The seven other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order,  AshokgaelikaaLin, Maxi, Padmum, Pravin,  Shackman and The Old Fossil. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, or not at all this week, do give some allowance for that too!

    The last three are nice; but the first two are the best! 🙂

    No, I don’t think the second landmark is worth visiting. There are far too many similar landmarks around the world. Give it a miss and go for a biryani instead.

    • Ah, you perhaps do not know that the second is the maker of the internationally famous biriyani to eat which, his admiring fans will go to any lengths to mollycoddle him.

    A pen for each pocket ! .. Is that some kind of Pune status symbol ? … 🙂

    • Sadly, not Big John. This photograph was taken during a brief time when I went back to corporate life leaving my retired comforts. The ball point pen was for signing cheques, which is mandatory here and the other is a fountain pen which is my writing instrument of choice with which I would sign documents and official letters.

    Chutki! Montana is very impressed with her being #1, although of course she is not surprised. It must be interesting to live somewhere with such rich history (meaning Sinhagad Fort and Shaniwarwada, of course).

    Thank you for sharing the story about the Cobbler, Dog, and God. That is just a beautiful story. It really resonates with me.

    • Chutki is now beginning to put on airs. She does not like other rescued dogs being fostered at home and makes her displeasure known.

      Thank you. The Marathas were a remarkable part of Indian history much neglected but now getting the recongnition that they deserve.

    • My pleasure sharing that story.

    I wonder if Chutki is happy to be called a landmark rather than a landmarker?

    Hi Rummy,

    I must say that the first two internationally famous landmarks are extremely handsome. You just feel like hugging both 🙂
    Your home-town is gorgeous…ah, perhaps one day…

    Cheers
