thats horrible...


That’s horrible….at least for me…just a few months from now I may not be able to enjoy such sunset from this place, my terrace, which is in fourth floor. After shooting the sunset, while post processing this picture I looked at the sun at 100% and was horrified to see the girders of a newly erected building piercing the fireball. Pune is such a lovely city….the people…the climate….the landscape…but how long it could be as lovely ….I know the city for over two years and watched its landscape worsen slowly.…I know its not pune alone which is facing the burnt of the development heat….its the cost of going higher we all are paying….but for that very better future, one cannot and should not watch the “movement” silently….these high rises could definitely be better planned so as to keep the landscape of the city least disturbed….few years from now I may or may not be here….but I will always be concerned for this beautiful city….the dozens of coming up concrete structures at the foothills may be a “heaven” on earth for a few….but why the entire city should pay for them….seriously start thinking…..and one need not necessarily be a nature lover for that ....

सुंदर सर आपकी खींची गई फोटो ही पूरी कहानी बता देती है। सूरज के सीने में आधी बनी इमारत की सरिया धंसता सा दिख रहा है। प्रकृति के नजदीक रहने के लिए लोग पुणे जाते हैं। लेकिन, अब जो हालात हैं उस पर तो मैं बस इतना ही कहूंग।
'मेरा घर चारों तरफ से इमारतों से घिर गया
लोग मेरे हिस्से का सूरज भी खा गए'
