Trek to kalsubai

Learning from prior experience and mismanagement and pain caused us in trek to HCgad , we started planning for this trek a week beforehand.
as all hard work paid, and our trek went well, Ashish pandey who was most enthu during planning and shopping for trek unluckily missed trek
as ranjan and pandey got into minor bike accident which left pandey injured badly.
As usual our plan didnt worked well from start, as we have decided to meet at shivajinagar at 6.30 am on saturday,

So as per plan we got into bus for sangamner and from sangamner we were planning to catch bus for bhandardara, we got into the bus and if any other direct bus for bhandardara is there, and found that there is bus for Rajur which is just 21 km from bhandardara so I ran back into the bus asked everyone to getout from the bus and directed them to Rajur bus which was empty.

So after bus took off, we reached rajur at arnd 12 pm and has light lunch and then took a Vadap (a term for local unauthorized travel where people travel sitting on the rooftop of bus) to bari, I thought that is the starting point for Ratangad, meanwhile we found that Heat was tough, grass was dried due to intense heat. we reached bari to know that bari is starting point for Kalsubai
as per our plan: we had planned for trek to Ratangarh + night stay at ratangarh + trek to kalsubai.
but as shendi which was base village for Ratangad was 20 km away from bari, so we dropped plan for ratangarh and instead decided that we will do kalsubai today and ratangarh tomorrow.

meanwhile as we were stuffed in jeep, I sat in wrong place, I couldnt get a air to breath, so I was feeling nausea, so when I got down, I could stop and I vomitted whatever I ate at Rajur. after that I had a tea and banana, I felt somewhat better. then we started for trek, got a small boy from village as a guide as we wanted to get down early so that we can start for ratanwadi same day in the evening. it was 2pm when we started walking, in first phase there were no trees, too much heat was there. All were soon got exhausted, and we were taking break every 10-15 minutes.
For me, it was more tough as after vomitting I didnt have anything in my stomach, I was feeling powerless, even I was feeling that I can not complete this trek, and was thinking that I will sit down and let others go up. but I fought against that feeling and continued ,we were drinking water at every halt, after sometime we remembered that we have glucon d with us so, after eating glucon d we felt better, we continued our journey. after sometime,
we shaddow of hill started, and that was much better for us. so we continued, and just before there was a small well of water, and Man, that was real refresher, the water was refreshingly cold. and if we would have time, I could have had a bath there such a nice was that water.
so after drinking plentyful of water, fully recharged our batteries, It did take no time to reach at the top. And we reached to Highest peak(5400 feet) in sahydri ranges. it took has 3 hrs to climb the top. It was real satisfaction reaching , the Everest of Maharashtra. we sat there for while. Ate some food and then started back. On the way, Jignesh had a problem in his knee, and because of that, we came back very slowly. and it took 3 hrs
get down. after getting down, nagendra to complained about pain in his ankle. so we decided to ditch the plan for ratangad and instead decided to
see all the places like bhandardara lake, randha falls and konkankada on sunday.
we spent our night at bari, it was chilling cold there, we had a campfire and shared some stories.

then we went to see konkankada and MTDC resort. and at arnd 1pm we started for rajur and from rajur we got a bus back to pune at 3. reached pune at 8.30 pm..

So Trek was quite peaceful, but we decided that this is our last trek this season, and Ranjan Kumar now thinking of his new venture which is
Biking club. All the best ranjan kumar.

Bubble - I am bloggin it..:)

Transfer of vehicle to Pune from other state - updated on June 02/08

So after getting NOC from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, Next step was to re-register bike in Pune, I needed to deal with RTO, Pune, Maharashtra, Compare to hyd RTO, I found pune RTO to be much clumsier, full of agents, no PRO to get information with. still able to get information about what to do.
When I went to RTO, I was surrounded by Agents, who were demandeing 2000 Rs apart from all other taxes. I think doing it yourself should be much better as it does gives you experience of working with government offices. also after doing all hard work while getting NOC from hyd, I thought this should be miniscule task. so Wanted to do it myself.
After enquiring further, I came to know that person called Mr. Pazze handles all matters about vehicle outside Maharashtra, So I went to him and He handed me a document listing all the following. He is key person in carrying out this whole work. He will describe you whole procedure with very cool head and seems to be quite nice guy.
  1. NOC from original state where vehicle belongs(in my case Hyd, AP). 2 copies original
  2. RC book original, registration card
  3. Vehicle Insurance
  4. Invoice receipt – vehicle purchase dealer receipt
  5. Entry tax , in case when you bring the vehicle before 30 months of registration date.
  6. Address proof where you are staying currently with photo
  7. Affidavit of non-stolen vehicle by registered owner
  8. Form. No 26,27, 20,33 . you will get these forms free at rto.
  9. Pencil chassis print – 5 original
  10. NOC from Police Commisioner pune.
  11. Registration fee- 320
  12. 7 % for invoice cost as registration
You can refund previous paid tax by applying at Hydrabad.
He asked me to get the affidavit on 20 Rs stamp paper. so I went outside, was inquiring abt affidavit, one person demanded me Rs 200 per affidavit and I asked some other person he was taking 100 Rs so I asked him to do the work. so while having conversation with him, I came to know that He also had reregistered his vehicle but through agents and in turn paid quite big amount to get the work done, he was happy knowing that I am doing work myself not through RTO agent.
In pt. 10. to get NOC from Police Commisioner pune., you need a letter from RTO. You will get this letter from Mr. Pazze, after showing him all the above docs, after verifying docs, he will give you a letter from RTO to Commissioner of police, You need to give it in Commissioner of police office with xerox of NOC from hyd, and residential proof. and after 7 working days you will get the NOC from Pune police. The concerned person is Mr. Chavan. He will issue you NOC in 10 minutes, if everything is ok.
Then you need to submit all of above docs to Mr. Pazze and he will check the things and you need to get assessement done from counter 30/31( i think). then after getting how much amount you need to pay, you need to pay tax at counter 23/24 (i think..). and then re submit docs along with receipt of tax payment to Mr. Pazze. He will ask you to see him after 1 and half months.
So till now, it took around 2 weeks to get this much work done.
So finally I got my docs back from RTO officer, after that I had to go to alandi office to acquire a sign from RTO officer who checks the vehicles and gives you back the paper which takes 1 hours.
Now I need to give this docs back to RTO and get New maharashtra registration number and then apply for tax refund from hyderabad office.
I have written this blog in 2007. RTO procedure might have underwent some changes. if any of you go to RTO and find something is changed, I do request you to add comment or post link to your blog to help people who read this blog.
please post comments, if you have any queries. also if you know anything more than whats written here, please let us know. we would like to hear from you.
