Pune is a sprawling city in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. It was once the base of the Peshwas (prime ministers) of the Maratha Empire, which lasted from 1674 to 1818. It's known for the grand Aga Khan Palace, built in 1892 and now a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, whose ashes are preserved in the garden. The 8th-century Pataleshwar Cave Temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
FLAME chose Pune for a very specific reason and it is not just the proximity to the industrial, commercial and financial capital of India, Mumbai. The reason is different: It is Pune itself. FLAME prides itself in being close to the culturally rich city of Pune: a city abounding with history, tradition and yet buzzing with a newfound energy. Its weather, richly influenced by the Western Ghats is conducive to creativity, its history, littered around every corner, inspires thoughts and kindles a spirit to do. There is enough and more to do for students in Pune – be it recreation, rejuvenation or just to reach out to the past or the future.
