My family and I have lived in Pune on and off for the past 20 years or so. It was once a really lovely city. Calm and clean. Now, it's become like every other metropolis. It is still quieter and safer than Bombay (for comparison) however, I don't know how long that will last.
Locals have a very slow pace of life in most things (shops opening late, closed for siesta in the afternoon, slow and lackadaisical service)which is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, crime was also be considered in this category as it isn't as severe as many large urban sprawls. While it's hardly safe for women most anywhere in India, Pune sees women walking and traveling well after dark.

However, this is laziness is toxic when it encompasses government, law-enforcement and corporate bodies because it stagnates any change that could take place. The attitude of workers in these 3 bodies across the nation isn't anything to brag about but it seems in Pune it is especially poor. It takes forever to get anything done (getting a sim for your phone or gas for your house), traffic cops are rarely reliable, even getting deliveries for major appliances or small packages can be delayed by hours or even days.

The worst part of seeing Pune's devolution over the decades is the sharp increase in visible poverty and pollution. There is garbage everywhere. The main river, Mula river, is black. Has been black for years and the water level is abysmal. The shanty homes built around the river make it even more evident how the problem is just becoming worse.

Pune has a LOT of money due to the large number of IT corporations. However, like everywhere else in India, corruption keeps the money from flowing into infrastructure, social welfare, and education. Rampant "development" and "urbanization" has destroyed one of the mainstays that made Pune such a joy to visit: its greenery. Summers are becoming hotter and drier due to the lost of vegetation and the once cold winters hardly last.

There can be improvements if there are clear limits set on what is and isn't allowed and if that is reinforced by everyone. However, I don't see that happening and doubt it will until it's too late. For now, enjoy it for what it is and while it lasts.

It's good that pune has less crime rate as compared to other metro cities but still improvements are needed in terms of laws,Strict actions are needed to be taken against those who are not following the spefified protocol set by the Government.

Where is Pune police? Today I saw two guys getting beaten up in range hills area. Yesterday I overheard that bikes and cars were broken by some mob in gokhale Nagar area whose video is on YouTube by name mdnews. Crime rate, assault, battery is seriously threatening this once peaceful city. New local gangs are on rise in our city and if the cops are still oblivious to this fact then it won't be long before the next crime Lord is born in Pune city.
