The station seems highly unused why? I thought quite some trains go through.
Or its just the retro feel?

Let me tell you the incident and you will forgive these 2 wheeler guys. If you have been to Mahabaleshwar (Which you must be hundreds of times), while coming towards Pune, theres a one way tunnel (The other way goes through ghat towards Maha.), when I was about to enter this tunnel at 100, on the right most lane, what I could see was a biker (Local guy) coming out of the tunnel with headlight on. Can you beat this? If I would have been 30 sec before, I would have collided this bas***.

Default Saint Tukaram dindi in 12mati.

As earlier mentioned, yesterday, tukaram dindi stayed at 12mati on the way to pandharpur.

Dindi entered in the city at 6pm and moved toward Indapur today at 7am.

Tukaram dindi.

I got opportunity to walk with the dindi for 5 km before 12mati with six other rajababues.

Me holding the kasara[ string to control the bulls].

ASHISH, You are very lucky to get opportunity to take glimpe and becoming part of Tukaram Palkhi and Dindi. Must have been a really thrilling, exciting experience.

Thanks for sharing the snaps and giving us the Glimpse of Dindi and Palkhi!

Aashish bhau, Tumhala khoop khoop dhanyavad,

Pudhya varshi tumhi varkari honar tar ?
Mala lahanpane punhya aastana te ichha hoti, pan kadhi zamla nahi

For the benefit of others, translating in english

Brother Ashish,

many many thanks for sharing this
next year you will be joining the varkari group who travel to pandharpur ?
i wanted to become a varkari when i was younger and was residing in pune, but never managed.

Red face where is everybody?

Everyone seems too busy exploring the actual "Magnificent Maharashtra" that there is no time for sharing the experiences.

@SDP. That's a typo. it's three bridges on the location in Malsejh. And yes, we were busy with the Mumbai Pune megameet at Lonavala. And this weekend I'm travelling again. And there's work too. This log will roll shortly.
