MSEB Electric Black Out Schedule blue

If they are gona cut power for 4 hours, then I think it better be with 1 hour gaps. i.e. For 4 hours power cut they can cut power 4 times with 1 hour gap inbetween. That will let me breath, specially in summer heat. For 12 hours 12 gaps ?

What do think about it ?

Maharashtrian snack bar

This post has been cross-posted from my personal blog

In a Maharashtrian city like Pune, you would expect to see a Saravana Bhavan style fast food/snack bar all over the city that serves exclusive Maharatrian snacks. But no, there are none of that kind. Yes there are the ubiquitous tapris which serve you poha, upma, vada pav. misal pav etc etc along with the South Indian snacks. But no exclusive Maharashtrian snack bar chain. Its not that Maharashtrian cusine does not boast of a variety of delicious snack items. It does, but still when you come to think of it, if you want to suggest a place to eat good Maharasthrian snacks to anybody who is asking for it, it will be hard to pin point one. There might be one place here and one place there, but not as a chain.

Instead of snack bars like these, you get to see a chain of restaurants serving generally multi-cuisine, owned by the Shettys. And on any given evening, most of these restaurants would be packed with people. So why not an exclusive Maharahtrian snack bar ?
