Pune Fair-Age No Bar


On the 9th of December,2009, Nitika, Nila, Varsha and I went to 'The Big Fair' in Kalyaninagar, Pune. It was a typical Mela with the Chaat stall, the rides, the 'khilona ka dukan'(toy shop),a paan shop, stalls selling candy floss, kurtas, chappals, etc...Not everyone was in the best of moods when we got there,and to cheer them up, we went to the toy shop. Mind you, the person we were trying to cheer up was 17, not 4! :) But it worked. She bought herself a laser and was happy, while I bought a mouse which would scamper about when wound and was named Jerry(Original,isn't it?). Pretty realistic though since it did scare my mother. And my sister loved it, but was disappointed that I didn't find a cockroach or a lizard that could be made to move/was remote controlled. She's 25,by the way. Nitika and me went on all the rides that 18-year-olds were allowed on. They cost 20-25 rupees each and were not all worth it since they weren't scary.But it was fun anyway...A different sort of fun from the usual. A must have there is the Manchurian!Without the cabbage leaves to garnish it because it fails to enhance the taste. The fair is on in Pune till the end of January and I will be going there again with friend(s). It's already been decided. Just a date needs to be fixed now.
