Don't be alarmed. We are not taking you to Mahabaleshwar or even as far as Mulshi. We want you to travel just for 20 minutes from say Deccan or 15 minutes from Saras Baug or just 10 minutes from Rajaram Bridge and come to live in a nature park! We are taking you to DSK Vishwa; a world where we have strictly forbidden the entry of noise, clutter, pollution, stress and crowd. Be ready to spend a good amount of time on this trip. We are talking of going around 130 acres. Let us begin with the famed entrance, a gateway to a green sanctuary of peace and happiness.
As soon as you step in, a water cascade will turn the air conditioning on. The air will start cooling down. You will be greeted by bells tolling in the Hemadpanthi Ganesh Temple to your left. The serenity of the temple will take away your day's stress. You palms will quickly come together to thank the Lord for such beauty.
Your can then wind your way up a beautiful tree lined road. Your pace will automatically slow down to watch the green blanket of trees and landscaped gardens. You will soon be lost in the bird park, watching some of the 65 amazing species of birds fluttering around from branch to branch; enjoying their unhurried gymnastics. As you ascend, a panoramic view of the Pune city will take your breath away.
A little detour to the vanarai, oh why not? You will just want to sit here and feel the cool shade or go around and enjoy the wonderful Gauava, Sitaphal (Custard apple), Jamun, Raatrani and Mango trees, taking you back to the little garden around your home in the Pune of your childhood.
And suddenly a small but sweet intrusion in your solitude; the melodious chirping of school children who are walking and cycling home from the DSK ICSE School.
You will certainly imagine your little ones amongst them, running to you in excitement, so that all of you can walk home together.
Well together now you will definitely want to explore more. As you go further you will find a jogging tracks, club with a gymnasium, beautiful landscaped gardens. The buildings you will notice are spaced out and the sense of clutter that grips you in a modern city is nowhere to be seen. We may inform you that the Khadakwasala Dam and Sinhagad are commonly sighted from DSK Vishwa. If you are an eco-conscious citizen, which you no doubt are, you will like to know that we have a rain water harvesting system and a wet garbage treatment plant.
As you step out with reluctance, well guess what, you will find a smiling face waiting to greet you. Your wife who has been checking out the market and other amenities at DSK Vishwa will narrate things full of excitement. It's a complete universe she will inform you...shops, bank, ATM, medical facility. The P.L. Deshpande Katta for lively discussions on any subject in the world! PMT buses available inside the township and rickshaw comes at the drop of a hat!
