We moved out from Pune, Maharashtra when I was in 8th Std as my father was being transferred to another state, though I left the city many years ago but the city, its culture, its food, and its lifestyle never left me and is still in me. 😀 I still remember while going to school in the morning by Army school bus, I use to enjoy the cool and refreshing breeze of the morning and the smell of Poha. 😀 Street Vendors have come by now with their Thelas and start selling a hot plate of freshly made Poha topped with finely chopped onions, a handful of coriander leaves, a dash of chaat masala and squeezed lemon juice. Ahh! I am hungry now. 😀
