Nashik - The City of Mastikhors !!!

            415th BLOG -->>

        I have been away from my Blog because I went for a trip to Nashik to meet my Junior college friends and for Sai Baba Darshan in Shirdi. Nashik is too close to my heart. I have completed my 11th and 12th in the Bytco College of Nashik. I remember the time when I and my father went to the principal of this college for my admission in 11th std after the admission procedure was over. The principal - Dhondge Sir rejected our request saying that there were 800 seats for 11th std and all of them are full, we can't even admit him by taking donation. I and Papa were shocked. We left Aurangabad thinking that I'll easily get admission in Nashik but after coming here and meeting the principal, we were damn disappointed to see that there is no scope of admission and I'll have to waste one year to get admitted in 11th std. I and Papa went to the Educational Officer in a Government Office and paid 1000 rs to a lawyer for setting some jugaad for my admission and he went up with an application to the main Educational officer of the Nashik and the Edu. Officer stamped on the Application. The application said that this child was suffering with fever and he was admitted to hospital because of which he was unable to perform admission procedure on the given time so please allot a seat for him in the Gokhale Education Society's Bytco College on Nashik Road. 

              Finally, I got admitted in 11th std and I started attending college. Because of the late admission, I was never alloted the division and I never demanded them to allot the same for me. Whenever I attended college, I used to sit in the classroom with the most number of students. I used to go and secure the last bench and used to sleep there for all the time or used to talk through SMS with my girlfriends which I got through online chatting. This used to be the routine of my life. After 1 month, I stopped going to college as there was no friend to accompany me and I started spending my time in Cyber Cafe surfing Internet and adding the number of girls in my Girlfriend list. It was a wonderful period. Sitting in Cyber Cafe with a coke on the right side and a Kurkure packet on the left, searching girls on Orkut and sending them request, after their approval, sending them various scraps to show that I am crazy for them and then replying to their replies and finally proposing them, after the approval, taking their contact numbers and then sending them text messages and starting a raunchy conversation. This used to be my life in 11th std in Nashik. 

              At last I failed in 11th and my father admitted me in Chate classes. In Chate classes, all the students rejected and ignored me for first because I was a failure in 11th std but as the time passed and they understood that I am good in creating humor in classroom and I can make the lectures go like a party, they accepted me. Suddenly, I got many friends. I have mentioned about them in one of my blog post in the month of April. Now, we began bunking classes, going to multiplex for watching movies, sitting at Cyber Cafe and downloading numerous Windows software and Unlock codes of Games. It was a golden moment where I had no tension of studies and I was living a great life in this city. Nashik had good roads, it was developed, it had good restaurants, it had multiplexes, so I kept on roaming here and there in Nashik for the whole year. Finally board exams came and I gave them after studying a lot in the last months of the 12th std. After the exams, I shifted to Mumbai but I always missed Nashik. The friend circle of Nashik was damn crazy and I just can't get over them still. After that I am visiting Nashik once every year just to meet my friends and walk on the same roads with them and remember our old time when we rocked the city with our Bindaas behaviour. 

              This 3-day-trip of Nashik has been awesome. I met some of the good friends and created the same environment of our Junior college time and laughed a lot. Watching India TV together and making the same kind of headlines from our lives and then laughing was a memorable time. Going for long motor-cycle rides in night was a breezing moment. I went to Shirdi Sai Baba Darshan too. As you all know I am a big devotee of Sai Baba, I had a will and desire of worshipping Sai Baba in Shirdi from last 2.5 years but because of hectic schedule and no company, I had to postpone it everytime but this vacation, I was firm on my plan to go to Sai Baba and finally I achieved it. It is said that you can't worship your favorite God in your Favorite Temple till the God himself don't want you to come. The day God decides to call you to meet him, you go there even after many difficulties and hurdles. So finally I worshipped the Almighty Sai Baba in Shirdi and thanked him for all the achivement he blessed me with after I landed on the city-of-dreams - Mumbai and asked him to shower me with whatever is right for me in life. Yes, I just said to give me whatever is good for me rather than reading out a whole big list of my desire and dreams. 

             Now, I am back and I have decided that now I'll never postpone the plan of Shirdi and I'll visit it once every year. OM SAI RAAM.

           Thanks.

I'm curious for your next post. Excellent post. Keep writing such kind of information on your blog. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Wishing you best of luck..

Policemen collecting fees from Vehicles from outside Maharashtra.

We have heard and seen police collect money from all tourist vehicles coming to Nasik (Maharashtra). The amount charged is from 500 rupees to 10000 rupees. It is not possible to keep vehicle papers in the vehicle at time of travel as it gets misplaced or stolen. Sometimes papers kept in vehicle are damaged by water or get spoiled after few months. The policemen are on every road in the city. The policemen in Maharashtra are very greedy and try to extract maximum money and some people had to borrow money from relatives or friends to pay them.
