Jawhar - The unknown hillstation

So since the time college has started, I've joined quite a lot of activities which prevented me from going out anywhere. College was from Monday to Saturday, but as if that was not enough, I joined Taekwondo (self defence) classes which took up my Sunday as well. However, I did manage to get one Sunday off. That day we went to Jawhar....100 kms away from Thane.

My opinion ?- Get a group and leave right now ! Monsoons are the best time to go there. During this time the streams are overflowing, the lakes are lovely, and if you are lucky enough, you may even get to see a waterfall ! The drive to Jawhar is heavenly- Ghats, waterfalls, streams and beautiful valleys. You first pass through Manor, then Vikramgadh to finally reach Jawhar. There are no proper eating places as such, but there are quite a few small motels. Go in a group - Safety in numbers.

While we were there we visited :
1. Hanuman Point ( you can literally drive your car upto the cliff edge ! )
2. Jai Vilas Palace (wonderful walk - Paradise i'd say ! )
3. Jawhar Lake (bliss- scroll down to know why ! )

These places are all close by.

Some pictures from the trip.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
