Quote of the post: "When you discover yourself wrong, It is very hard to 'UNLEARN'." - Quote about 'UNLEARN' - Sachin Kumar Gupta

A Very Happy New Year 2018 to you, your family and loved ones. Enjoy the recent poem, Hope you like it. Mark what to unlearn, your new year resolution.



Unlearn the sinful lies, which you are still believing. 
Unlearn the faulty processes, which you are still following. 

Unlearn the erroneous facts, those deviate you from truth. 
Unlearn the short term mindset, which blocks human growth. 

Unlearn the evil character, which control your mind, body and soul. 
Unlearn the vague misleads, which deviates you to achieve the goal.

Unlearn the invalid arguments, that troubles you. 
Unlearn the toxic thoughts, which you blindly follow and continue.

Unlearn the bad talks, which are below standards. 
Unlearn the false allegations, which are blocking to move forward. 

Unlearn the corrupt system, that blocks the development. 
Unlearn the unhealthy food, which you consume and eat. 

Unlearn the sloppy mistakes, which you commit repeatedly.
Unlearn the stifling teachings, which still prevail in the society. 

Unlearn the contradictory info, that leads to hurdle. 
Unlearn the harmful people, that you have in your circle.

Unlearn the injurious medicine, which causes anxiety and depression.
This is the time to master, 'the art of what to unlearn with passion'.

- Sachin Kumar Gupta (Sach)

If you would like to visit wonders of the world from Rome, Paris, Agra, Egypt and Pisa at one place in Pune. You should visit 'Seven Wonders Parks at Pune'. The dream park is in the city area and so is fairly accessible. This park is also known as 'Yashwantrao Chavan Garden'. The place is beautiful and have replica of famous wonders of the world. Though you wouldn't find 'The Great Wall of China'. Miniatures are in good shape and constructed well, which are really made by hard work. You can traverse wonders of the world in the park in below order:

1. Taj Mahal, Agra, India. 
2. Statue of Liberty, New York, USA. 
3. The Eiffel Tower, Paris, France. 
4. Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England. 
5. Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy. 
6. Colosseum, Rome. 
7. The Great Pyramids of Cairo, Egypt. 

This place is a very good learning for young kids. Even small children love it. This is a nice place for photo-shoot, though little congested. There is no dedicated parking for the garden, so please come before time to park the car outside the park at the road parking lanes as per directions. There is no facility of drinking water inside, so bring along some water if you are coming with kids. 

There is a 4d hall inside park where you can watch 15 min movie by showing them ticket. This show has stories of Aladdin, Alice and the wonderland and Dracula's. Cost of the ticket is very economical and 20 INR only. Usually in malls, you pay 200-500 INR per person for similar shows. It is fun to watch with family and friends. There are many cartoon icon placed which are good entertainment for kids as well. Children can pose for photos with these characters. Though this place need regular maintenance.

If you are looking to escape the city life somewhere near Pune or Mumbai in Maharashtra? Need a much needed break from the traffic and crowded streets. Camping near Panshet is the place to head off to for a weekend break or even mid-week outing. Enjoy the experience of sleeping under the open sky by the Panshet Lake. Panshet is a beautiful night camping site in the open, under the twinkling sky. Panshet is quite close to Khadagwasla dam, and approx 50 km from Pune, and approx 150 km from Navi Mumbai. 

The travel from Khadagwasla to Panshet itself is one of a kind where most of campers and photographers don't sit inside the vehicle but prefer to stop at time to time due to amazing surroundings. We started from Pune and reached here in 3 hours including multiple breaks. We choose Panshet Eco Village camp-site near Surya Shibir resort, which is still developing. This itself was a great experience. As soon as we reach the place, we had splendid views of the lake. Soon we got set up our camping tents, mats, and started the bonfire for the night camping. 

Soon after sunset, the real fun begins around 8 pm. We got our evening snacks ready and temprature started to drop. Everyone free to enjoy the evening as we want. Sanjay also bring his Guitar along-with him, and Chanchal his open-air speakers. We sing and dance at time to time and prefer playing music from our phones as per choice. We also had time to photograph at times, and enjoyed star gazing and bonfire till midnight. Everyone had dinner as and when we feel hungry. We also see few shooting stars during the night. If you have your telescope with you, This place is good to observe the constellation of stars and planets. Please note that it becomes quite cold in night, and during winters temprature drops a lot, so carry  woolen clothes and blankets is very important. The tents we got were new, and good quality. We have nets inside, so we opened few zips of tents, that keep flowing fresh air all the time. 

Few of us just slept for 2-3 hours and wake up early to adore the beautiful sunrise by the lake. We enjoyed it fully and had few clicks as well. Later we had our breakfast, and stayed there till 11 AM. The best time to do camping at Panshet is October to March. Avoid during the monsoon. Panshet is also very safe place to camp out in the open since there is no wild animals or even snakes around the place. But still be aware of surroundings, for your own safety. Swimming in lake is prohibited, but boat tour can be enjoyed after the sunrise. Our full group was full of energy. Really enjoyed the night and day throughout. Looking forward to more of these adventures to come.
