Pune, the hub of students and job seekers

The wake up call

It was a bright sunny morning of April, which I had planned to enjoy with a cup of coffee sitting in my lawn. Just a few days had passed since my high school exams and I had decided to take some days off the study, career and all such hectic decisions to be taken. But, this morning when I sat quietly in my lawn sipping the coffee, with a newspaper in the other hand, I realised that I don't really have the time to relax. I should rather invest all of my time in deciding about what forms should be filled to pursue my further studies and which cities can I consider for the same. It was a wake up call for me, and luckily I wasn't too late. It was the time when all the colleges were conducting the entrances and all the other proceedings for admissions.

My urge to explore Pune

It took me a while to decide that I can consider moving to any other Indian city to pursue my further studies. Though there were numerous choices for me opt for, within Delhi, but I had this urge to move to some other education hub, where I would learn to live independently. So, I settled for Pune, a city which is not so crowded and developed to an extent that you can expect to spend an exciting life here. Top of everything, Pune is considered to be an education hub, where many institutes welcome you to chase your professional goals.
