Some shadows from our leisurely walk through Pune University yesterday. The University grounds used to be the residence of the Governor of Bombay, during British times. These pictures are taken from Alice Park, inside the univ grounds. A thickly wooded, lush green space with a cement pond, and Alice’s tomb.
I have no idea who Alice is. Different stories do the rounds every year. Some call her the erstwhile Governor’s mistress, or girlfriend, or mother, daughter, aunt….you get the drift. Ms Alice is also supposed to have died from anything from a heartbreak to tuberculosis.
Let me add that this information is completely unauthenticated. They are simply part of every student’s collective imagination. I couldn’t take a picture of the tomb tho’. Too many couples around…;)
The basket in the foreground in the above picture, is the gardeners’ basket for collecting dead leaves.
And it was weaving a shadow by itself 🙂
