Thanks for giving me an update on Pune. Very Helpful. Infact, I also have a point to share. I recently moved to Pune from Thailand, and was looking for an indoor play area for my daughter, (The type that we have in developed world). You know what, I really did find one. It is called Totz World & it is very close to E Square. W would be completely surprised by the facilities that they offer. Do visit their web site www.totzworld.com or call on 020 25561015.
