Have you heard of this place (pronounced "Poona")? If not, it is likely that you have heard of a badminton tournament invented by a British foreign military officer in Pune. Originally, this game was called Battledore. Then, the name of the game is changed to Shuttlecock. Later, the name became the name of the big house of one of the officers (badminton halls), where the social activities of the residents' families always included the game on their lawn. Today, the Pune people separate their city from the history of the colonies of Britain, Portugal and Martha. As the seventh most populous city in India, Pune's considerable manufacturing base and higher education institutions define its identity and future.
Located in the inland port of Mumbai's bustling port (formerly known as Mumbai) and through roads, railways and airports, Pune's location ideally supports trade and cultural exchanges with Southwest Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The city ranks seventh in the list of cities that billionaires call hometowns, and Pune is a strong contender for India's top cities.
However, Pune did not escape the scourge of overpopulation and the scourge of the population in India. The air and water pollution that comes with it. Population growth exceeds the necessary infrastructure development. Without proper infrastructure, the Pune people, especially the poor, must solve a series of problems on their own without the help of the municipal government. Shortage of food supplies, inadequate drinking water, and inadequate sewer systems directly lead to river pollution. Inadequate health care leads to lower birth rates and premature death.
The city cannot accommodate all those who wish to enter the university system. Therefore, a large number of poor people cannot improve themselves through education. The most profitable work is still not possible. The entire family cannot improve its position in society.
Just as the potato famine caused a food shortage in Ireland, driving generations of poor Irish people to abandon their country, poverty and few opportunities drove the poor in Pune to join the poor in other urban centers. India will become a foreign worker in other parts of the world, especially in the Arab countries with oil well-being.
However, like Irish immigrants, those who immigrated from Pune brought their history, culture and moral goodness. No matter where they land, they are Indian ambassadors. They are the best chance for the city to connect with others and may revitalize Pune itself.
