Pune

I drove down to Pune with one of our salesmen and dealer today. It was a bit rainy, but the scenery in the surrounding area is beautiful. Much less pollution in Pune than in Mumbai.

We visited three of our customers to see how they’re using our products and if they have any questions or concerns. Fortunately, most people seemed to like our products.

I also got a chance to go to one of the major engineering schools in Pune to do an installation. The campus was in the middle of nowhere, but it was very nice. There were a bunch of puppies gathered together in the main green. I wasn’t sure if that was a mascot, or if people just like seeing puppies before they go to class.

I impressed our dealer while driving throughout the day regarding my Hindi ability. I only know about 10 words, but I use them appropriately in response to Hinglish (Hindi + English). My best feat of the day was when we were at a red light. I saw a billboard for the new movie “Total Recall.” The billboard was in Hindi, but I recognized the actors in it. So I pointed to the billboard and asked the guy if it said “Total Recall.” He was amazed.
