We look back on 2010-11 with mixed feelings. On one hand, we have grown and become a structured entity. This is important, since it enables us to take on more of the seemingly never ending list of issues that we feel we need to tackle. On the other, we are also more starkly cognizant of just how difficult it is to influence the actual outcomes regarding transportation in the city. This is something that we grapple with and agonize over. While Pune may compare favourably with other cities in India on some counts, we are still a far cry from the high standards set by cities worldwide, not just in the developed world, but also cities similar to ours in Latin America.
