Lavasa city (near pune) is like Salzberg (Austria)

Just been to Lavasa city ( recently. Its around 64 kms. from Pune. City is well planned by HCC group. Its going to spread over 25,000 acres (one fourth of size of Mumbai) comprising 4 towns. Currently their first town Dasve is under development. Whole town is getting built surrounding backwaters of near by lake. Its very well planned & reminds mediterranean architecture... When I saw the town first time, its surrounding natural beauty of mountain ranges on both side of backwater stream reminded me about my trip to Salzberg in Austria, Europe... Lavasa has water sports, rapelling (downward tracking), natural trails for hiking etc. already in place. We stayed in Waterfront Shaw hotel's service apartments which offers good breakfast. Hotel has some DJ activities in evenings & some complimentary free services like getting your name written on rice bran by artist. Location of hotel is very prime just oppostite to lake & information center of city is 2 minutes walk from there... Unlike Amby valley, entry to Lavasa city is free. Information center is on 4th floor of that building where they give free demo of half an hour about city in their mini theatre & 10 minutes 3D animation show. Same building has few free services of children games, tattoos, face sketches etc. on first floor. We stayed for 2 nights, 3 days... I guess by 2012, many new things will start there & that should be the time to travel there... Right now its too early as many things are not operational there... For couple of days trip, it should be fine but for longer stay its not a happening place right now....

  3. Entertainment site crosses 100,000 hits quickly

    By: Chetan Shah

    An entertainment site launched on September 1, 2012 crossed 100,000 hits in a month’s period. This site allows the viewers to see past episodes of different Hindi T.V. Serials. Site is becoming popular in class of people who misses episodes of their favorite serials due to frequent travels & busy schedules.

    This web application based site was developed by a Ghatkopar, Mumbai based firm “Brains R US Software Consultancy” owned by a Gujarati entrepreneur. This site covers currently running T.V. serials like Tarak Mehta Ka Ultah Chashma, R.K. Laxman Ki Duniya etc. as well as few of the best comedy serials of past like Zabaan Sambhal Ke, Dekh Bhai Dekh, Hum Paanch, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai etc. Total 40 T.V. serials are included in the site.

    One of the main advantages of watching T.V. serials from this site is that you save lots of time from watching advertisements. On average, you save 11 minutes of time per half an hour episode by watching your program one or two days later. Other advantage is that you can see the show at your own convenience.

    So if you’ve liked the idea, let’s get tune into & add the site in your bookmarks & share it with your friends…
