Legends Of My Hometown

I shall introduce some remarkable people living and late from my home town Pune here.  There are many more, but these are people who have left deep impressions on me for having achieved much during their lifetime.  And rather than reinvent the wheel, I shall, where possible, give links to Wikipedia or other sources for details about them.

To start with, two remarkable women who were corporate icons.

Gen Vaidya General Vaidya.

AND I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHERE TO STOP. THERE ARE MANY MORE LEGENDS AND WHAT I HAVE GIVEN ABOVE ARE JUST A FEW THAT I READILY RECALLED. IF I SAT DOWN FOR ANOTHER HOUR, I CAN COME UP WITH AT LEAST TEN IF NOT MORE.

THIS IS MY TOWN. I WOULD NOT LIKE TO LIVE ANYWHERE ELSE.

This topic was suggested by me, for the weekly Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where currently eight of us write on the same topic every Friday.  I hope that you enjoyed my contribution to that effort.  The seven other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order,  AshokgaelikaaLin, Maxi, PadmumShackman and The Old Fossil. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, or not at all this week, do give some allowance for that too!
