    "Yeah, I suppose the weather's not bad."

    1. "So, Pune's basically like a tinier, cheaper version of Mumbai, isn't it?"

    It was nice knowing you.

    2. "Oh, you're from Pune? Bet you moved there for the cheap accommodation."

    It isn't our fault that the real estate is sensibly priced, you know.

    But yeah, it's a bonus we're not complaining about.

    3. "Why the hell does everyone keep talking about Vaishali's S.P.D.P.? And WHO IS VAISHALI?"

    *Sigh* You have so much to learn, young padawan.

    4. "So how many pairs of "Osho" slippers do you own?"

    Two. One pair for wearing, and another for hurling at your dumb-ass face.

    5. "Can you please stop going on and on about Kayani Bakery's Shrewsbury biscuits already?!?!"

    Can't hear you over the sound of my incessant munching.

    Here, have a Shrewsbury!

    6. "Hey, have you ever been to Bhosari? Hehehe. Oh, have you ever been to Pimpri? HAHAHAHA."


    Hey, have you ever been to kindergarten? Because it sounds like you never left.

    7. "Meh, pretty sure I've had better Misal Pav in other cities."

    That's cute.

    Nah, college kids usually just go to the banks of the Mula-Mutha river after class and make mud castles.

    11. "Oh, you're from Pune, is it? Let me guess, you graduated from Symbiosis."

    Let me guess, you're ignorant.

    12. "Budhwar peth, Shaniwar peth.... do you have a peth for every day of the week?"

    Do you have an inconsequential remark saved up for every day of the week?

    13. "I honestly think the sweets in Chitale Bandhu are kinda overrated, TBH."

    I'm just going to go ahead and ignore that last statement. It is for your own safety.

    14. "So, does Koregaon Park, like, even have a park?"
