Pune is the 8th largest metropolis of India. It is well connected with the major cities of India by air, rail and road. Pune is also well known as “oxford of east” with buzzing educational activities. It is a developing IT hub and Auto Hub and also preserves the cultural and social aspect of the great history of Pune. In spite of advancing into a true metropolitan city, Pune preserves the cultural and traditional integrity of this great land of Peshwas.
I invite you all for this academic extravaganza, mind boggling knowledge filled with fun frolic and traditional hospitality of PUNE.
