The highlight of my recent visit to Pune was 'South Court' - the hotel where I stayed along with fellow architect Ravi John. It was by chance that we strolled into this colonial villa . Its located at Koregaon Park , the same street where Osho's commune is located. The hotel, which looks like a "booth bunglow" at first sight, is owned by a rich old Parsee gentleman and is now under renovation. If properly redone, it has the potential of becoming an Architectural landmark in Pune.

I saw this unusual world map hanging on the walls of an office in Delhi. It says its time to see the world as it really should be -The southern hemisphere on top and northern hemisphere at the bottom. Had the world been mapped by travellers from the south, the world map wud have looked exactly like this.
