Comments[edit]

I happened to come to this Wiki page on a colleagues suggestion and noticed that there were a lot of mistakes - both in the spellings and grammar of the article. So got down and fixed some of these.

The major changes that I made are as follows:

  • Changed the formatting of the document and capitalised the words properly and also changed the bold text as and when required.
  • Made quite a few grammatical changes to make the article more readable.
  • Added all the links I could find and also did a thorough spelling and grammar check on the See section.
  • Added all links that I could find in the Learn section.

Still have lots of editing to go, so will appreciate any help. Also, after editing, please add changes made to this page. Would make it a lot easier to review the content and enhance the quality of the main Pune page listing.

Thanks for your help! But don't worry too much about recording changes here, it's all stored automatically in the article history. (WT-en) Jpatokal 23:27, 29 September 2006 (EDT)

Linking content[edit]

Just wanted to know when should we add separate links and when should the text itself be a link? I saw the New York City article which is a guide article and they have used both at different places. Just wanted to clear some doubts, so that we could have a more consistent flow.

(WT-en) saurabhj 11:30, 30 September 2006 (IST)

The New York City article is a horrible mess and is a model of what not to do... The Project:Manual of Style lays out the Correct(tm) guidelines. (WT-en) Jpatokal 02:28, 30 September 2006 (EDT)

i've edited a fair bit[edit]

i've edited a fair bit of the article on pune and the listings are complete. i think that it deserves the status of a star, perhaps with a bit of more editing. i'm currently not signed in but my ID is upamanyuwikivoyage.

The edits are appreciated, but please be aware that there is now a procedure for awarding "Star status" that takes some time and involves significant consensus building. Making the Star assignment is premature until all that has been done. Your edits are helping to push the article toward being a Star, so keep up the good work, and the status itself will follow if consensus favors it. -- (WT-en) Bill-on-the-Hill 18:25, 28 November 2006 (EST)
I'm giving it a starnomination. okay. upamanyuwikivoyage
I don't see why you guys don't want to make it a star. I find it much more useful than some of the other star articles. upamanyuwikivoyage
Please read through Project:Article status. It's not enough to be useful, it has to be formatted like a perfect article, and we've given you lots of feedback on what's still missing at Project:Star nominations. It's a very high standard, and that's why we have under 10 Stars out of over 20,000 articles. (WT-en) Jpatokal 09:07, 2 December 2006 (EST)

Ex links[edit]

Moved these from the main page, but maybe still useful...

  • Virtual Pune has a wealth of information on Pune and its surroundings.
  • Around Pune focuses on the interesting sites around the city of Pune.
  • Pune Diary is another good website on the city.
  • Pune Events lists all major events, activities and exhibitions in the city. The website is updated very regularly, and is a better source than the newspapers.
  • The official website for the city of Pune.

They seem to have been replaced. Can someone comment? --(WT-en) Evan 15:23, 13 December 2006 (EST)


Photos[edit]

Dude, Upamanyu, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but please don't put up photos of somewhere else and claim that it is Pune. It is the sort of thing that will only get Wikivoyage made fun of. — (WT-en) Ravikiran 00:56, 14 December 2006 (EST)

cultural capital?[edit]

Pune is the cultural capital of Maharashtra? Not Mumbai? I've never been there, but... (WT-en) Cacahuate 12:03, 16 December 2006 (EST)

It is an informal term. Yes, Mumbai is the legal capital, but it is a city the British built. Pune, on the other hand, was the capital of a vast Maratha confederacy and is a pretty significant centre of Marathi art and culture. It certainly deserves the title. — (WT-en) Ravikiran 12:21, 16 December 2006 (EST)
Well there ya go. perhaps I shall visit... (WT-en) Cacahuate 12:35, 16 December 2006 (EST)
Cacahuate, Pune is v. much the cultural capital of Maharashtra, not Mumbai.
Got it, my ignorance shows... sorry :) (WT-en) Cacahuate 12:36, 21 December 2006 (EST)

Libraries (Public/Private)?[edit]

Could someone post some information on Public/Private libraries in Pune. I am sure that since Pune has been a students' city and is also called the cultural capital of maharashtra - there must be some good libraries around but being new to the city, i am not able to locate one...Thanks in advance. --(WT-en) Phaedreus 05:00, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Learn listings[edit]

Not a single thing here is for the traveller. I'm going to torch the whole section. Pune University and Fergusson College are already listed in the See section, but the Learn section is supposed to be places that offer short classes that a traveller could do, right? Not a comprehensive list of every business school, trade school, and college around. If you put it back, please enter into discussion. (WT-en) Texugo 22:07, 28 February 2008 (EST)

Lots of copyright violations[edit]

I just removed some of the Understand section, the infobox about peths, and a lot of descriptions from the Get Out section because they were all copied verbatim from other websites (I listed which ones in the edit descriptions). In the case of the infobox, I compared the article histories, and that text existed on Wikipedia before it came here. In the other cases, Google searches of the text brought up other sites, many of them government sites, and did not bring up Wikivoyage, suggesting to me that their addition to Wikivoyage happened later. If you have any information to the contrary, please note it here before adding the text back in. (WT-en) Texugo 23:22, 28 February 2008 (EST)

Districtifying Pune[edit]

Isn't about time to Districtify Pune - it is getting rather large, with lots of district listings. -- (WT-en) Huttite 03:47, 22 January 2009 (EST)

The area corresponding to the Districts actually contained information about the prominent suburbs and localities within Pune and hence I feel the terminology is incorrect. Have changed it to Localities / Suburbs.

(WT-en) saurabhj 01:08, 16 August 2009 (IST)

Sizzlers[edit]

What are Sizzlers and why do they have their own section? -- (WT-en) Huttite 03:54, 22 January 2009 (EST)

Sizzlers are actually a food item immensely popular in the city. You are right. They don't need their own section. Merging it with the rest of the restaurants. -- (WT-en) saurabhj 01:11, 16 August 2009 (IST)

Newspapers?[edit]

The page had a list of newspapers. I did not find any other pages having a list of newspapers. So removing that section and putting it here. Just incase anybody needs it later.

Concerning Districts[edit]

I think this article has a lot of potential. I'm going to attempt clean . Should we divide the city into districts? I definitely think the districts listed are too many; if we district-ified the city we would need to merge several together. Making this follow a big-city template would also mean a lot of work moving the listings around. I'm of the opinion that there's a ton of content in the article, but I'm not convinced it deserves a big-city format. I'd rather hack at the district section and move some of the summarized content in to the "Understand" section (but mostly because I don't want to fuss with moving all the listings over to other pages :) ).

For those in favor of creating districts, where should we "draw the lines"? I'm not familiar with the city, so I wouldn't want to go making educated guesses at how to divide up a city. DethDestroyerOfWords (talk) 19:54, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

I would at this point not split into districts, the first task is to get the listings sorted out. Either add more detail, particularly location, or remove them. Although not a huge city it does take a long time to get from one part to the other (crazy traffic) and some of the listings are outside the main city so maybe a few districts could make sense at some point once the article in cleaned up. --Traveler100 (talk) 20:15, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
  • In my opinion, there's no way a city of 3 million people can be ever classified as "small". The dynamic map shows me that it's very spread out geographically as well. I'm always in favor of keeping things as simple as they can be, and suggest we work to establish consensus on a list of no more than NINE districts (the Wikivoyage way). Having never been to Pune, I'm afraid I cannot contribute to this discussion. Ibaman (talk) 20:24, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
I don't know enough to have an opinion about whether this article should be districtified, but I'd like to point out that Karachi, a much bigger city, is not. There is relevant discussion at Talk:Karachi/Archive 2013#Merge separate district articles?. Also, Pune can use a Large City Template without being districted, if such a decision is made. Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:46, 19 March 2016 (UTC)


Having thought it over, this will be my course of action: I agree with Traveler100 regarding a primary focus on the listings. As I clean the article up, I'll pay special attention to list items by ensuring they have addresses/contact info. If they don't, I'll move them here to the talk page. Since the district section already exists, should we perhaps add a style tag to the district section with comments about reducing/merging the number of districts to nine? Or, should all of that content be moved back here until a decision is made to district-ify? DethDestroyerOfWords (talk) 13:26, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Having read all of the above, I think that districtification is not needed in this article. The "districts list" is superfluous at this point, and should be moved to this discussion page and unclutter the article. Ibaman (talk) 13:56, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
May have gone a little too far with some of the removal of see listings. Yes some are a bit out of the city Pune is still the only article in the area. --Traveler100 (talk) 22:08, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
Terribly sorry if I "plunged" too fast and too deep, haha. I recognize your concern about ensuring these locations are visible/reachable on this site for the reading traveler. My thought process was this: Some of the Sees seem very far away from the city. I certainly wouldn't consider something 100 to 160km away as part of the city of Pune. The closest fort/trek destination, Sinhgad, is a 29km drive, four destinations are between 50km and 75km drives, and the other destinations are well into the 100km range. I'm still deciding if those items would be better in the "Go next" section (the manual of style suggests that day trip ideas go there) or if they might be better as a subsection titled "Day trips" (or something similar) in the "Do" or "See", and then moving the similar stuff under "Hill forts" from the "Sleep" section into that. That would at least prevent them mingling with closer attractions and then we can call out that they are some trek away. When I edit stuff, I always try to keep the spirit of the original content and my intention was to put a paragraph about the forts and hill stations in the See section, I just didn't have time yesterday. I also think it would be a good idea to duplicate the fort and hill station section in the Western Maharashtra region article since, to me, it makes more sense to list them there. I'm not a strongly opinionated person and I'm new here, so if you have a better idea let me know and we can do things that way. DethDestroyerOfWords (talk) 14:34, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
Many of them I agree, should start to look at other location pages they could be added to. I would however consider

Sinhagad in the article. That is reachable for a trip out from the town and cannot see it worth creating some small village article to add it too. --Traveler100 (talk) 16:36, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Sounds good! I've added Sinhagad fort back into the "See" section. I've also been working on the "Go next" section; I added in the two hill stations that were in "See" removal and then added distances from Pune to the destinations for many of the other ones. Perhaps later in the week I'll sort out where some of the further away forts and trekking destinations should be put and tackle that odd, almost itinerary, addition to "Sleep". I'm still mulling over how I want to incorporate the other "See" listings I temporarily removed, but lunch beckons. I'll try to be back later today to at least get the hill stations over into the Western Maharashtra article. DethDestroyerOfWords (talk) 17:06, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

District section backup[edit]

Below is a district section that was removed due to a discussion on this talk page. If districts are determined to be necessary in future, we can work off of this content.

  • Koregaon Park is located north-east of the Camp area. It is considered to be the poshest suburb and houses the city's best restaurants. Osho Ashram is here and one finds the maximum number of foreigners here.

It houses quality restaurants as well as shopping complexes and also has many well known Schools & Engineering Colleges. Chandni Chowk located at extreme west of Kothrud hosts a number of well known restaurants and pubs - including a 24x7 cafe. The City Pride Multiplex and the Yeshwant Rao Natyagruh are located in this region.

Pashan also houses the National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Necklace Park and the Balaji temple.
  • The Peths are a cluster of little neighborhoods that constitute the old part of town. Most of the lanes in this part of the city are narrow and one can find many street vendors sell snacks on the sidewalk.
  • Pimpri Chinchwad is an upcoming township at the outskirts of the city. It is at a distance of 18 KM from Pune railway station. A proposal to call it "New Pune" was struck down due to a large number of controversies. With its quick access to Hinjewadi (IT hub of Pune) and Talawade (upcoming IT hub of Pune), most of the IT professionals prefer to stay in this area.
  • Shivaji Nagar also known as "Bhamburda" as per old city records, has a central bus stand and rail stop. The E-Square Multiplex is located here.
  • Viman Nagar is another part of Pune developing extremely quickly. It is mostly a residential area with a handful of good restaurants.

Taxis[edit]

Pune#Get in's "By taxi" section covers Pune-to-Mumbai taxis. Getting to Mumbai is not an appropriate topic for the "Get in" section of this article, but would be relevant to Mumbai#Get in. So should we delete these listings, unless they specifically advertise Mumbai-to-Pune trips on their websites? If so, which sites do? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:06, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Mumbai to Pune taxis is a relevant as Pune airport has few international flights. Even flying from Frankfurt people may still fly to Mumbai then get a taxi. It is an interesting, if you are not too nervous a passenger, drive too. Maybe the section should be rephrased, but it is better to get a Pune driver to and from. --Traveler100 (talk) 08:35, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Mumbai to Pune is relevant to "Get in"; Pune to Mumbai is not relevant to this article, unless possibly the "Go next" section. Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:16, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Sort of what I was trying to say. For get in I want a taxi from Mumbai, but even so I would order a driver from Pune to pick me up, not use a Mumbai taxi. Also chances are the traveller will want to return at some point to fly home. Just saying the information is valid, just the wording should be turned around. --Traveler100 (talk) 09:47, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
