Asha Dining Hall used to be our meeting place in Pune. We used to meet mostly for dinner and relish the vegetarian food there.
I bought many books from Mr. Gaitonde who setup a small book store in the hallway. He is such a jovial man, full of stories from Goa. Discussing about books was fun.
This dining hall is a relic of erstwhile laid back Pune culture. Even the name board is so unassuming.
