I have been born and brought up in Pune and so the favouritism and likeliness towards the city is but obvious. But yes, Pune also blends culture with modernity very well. A city of educational institutes, rich in various aspects, peopled by renowned personalities it is now moving on to become a huge industrial hub. In fact, it is also known as the Oxford of the East. Add to that the excellent weather conditions.

The real estate and infrastructure in Pune is now fast booming which shows that it is now one of the most favoured city for people to settle down as well as opt for it as a work destination. It also provides for good connectivity and infrastructure two factors which make it suitable for all types of work. So, besides the emotional quotient it provides a unique opportunity for me to expand and grow my business to a large extent .

For my business of wedding cards, gifting and printing, Pune works out to be the best option. People here are conscious of their culture and indulge a lot during festivals and religious ceremonies. Therefore, the demand and supply equation works out well for me.

For our commercial printing business as well, Pune is definitely the best option. There is a growing network of auto companies, IT companies and various other MNCs.

So, all in all, I consider Pune as the city I love to work in and I am glad to be a part of this city which has given me a lot in life. I hope I am able to contribute to the best of my capacity in adding to the success of this city.
