Hatkeshwar

Hey,

I happened to visit a place called Hatkeshwar. It s towering hill and a strenuous hike for a day. We 3(Myself, Anju and Ashish Mhatre) started from mumbai on saturday night and went to stay in a small temple in Madh village near Malshej. It was very cold and it was a little difficult to sleep on the cold floor of the temple. Ajay Dhamdhere, Mahendra Singh and Vilas Ashtaputre joined us after about an hour or so. Mornings were very cold and we were actively looking out to make a fire. Ajay had forgotten the gas burner(and it made me very very happy - I can now lit a fire to make tea). Tea was refreshing in that cold - except that it lost all its warmth in a minute...!

We reached kolewadi and started our trek. At the first look, it appeared very simple and my (overconfident) calculations told me that it wont take anything more than 2 hours. We initially lost the track and went to the right side of the hill. after a session of route finding, Ajay suggested that we go back to the plat…

RAIRESHWAR – NAKHINDA – PAATHSHEELA – ASWAL KHINDA

A route which existed some 20-30 years back, but eventually faded due to lack of usage- was our target for the last weekend. We did manage to get some things right, while we need to visit again to complete the rest. Some stuff below will be useful for fellow trekkers who in future plan to visit this place.

Some Geography:
Raireshwar, within itself is a popular place amongst trekkers and bears a significant history with Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj commencing the “Oath of Swarajya”.  Geographically Raireshwar  is more like a table platue, which spans over 20 Kms in length and 7 Kms in bredth( at the maximum). Raireshwar is now connected by a Tar road which reaches the south eastern edge. The road goes from Bhor- Korle – Raireshwar Khinda – Wai – Bhor.

NRIs and Demonetization | My Experience with the RBI Process | Updated (June 2017)

UPDATE (June 1st 2017)

The amount that I deposited in the form of old notes has been successfully transferred to my Saving Bank Account (in about 6 months).
----------------------------------


I happened to visit India after the demonetization cut off date and went  through the process of depositing my old currency notes. This is my attempt to narrate my experience. 
Tuesday:  After checking the RBI website, I found out that we as NRIs can deposit old currency at RBI offices in Mumbai and other metros. Unfortunately, the website never mentioned which offices of RBI do accept it. We (My wife and I) reached the RBI premises at Bandra Kurla Complex (being the closest) to check for the currency exchange process. However, I was told by the security that "This doesn't happen here and possibly you may want to check at either Belapur or the CST offices". He wasn't really sure.
We decided to avoid any chances and visited the CST office of RBI.
