Dear Citizens,

Two centuries of uninterrupted public service by an institution is a milestone in history by any conceivable standard. It’s an accomplished journey since 1817 having passed through countless challenges faced. Destiny has placed me in the unique position of heading this vulnerable organization on this landmark occasion. It would be befitting to recall the eventful history of the Pune Cantonment Board intertwining the narrative with the heritage city of birth, Pune. Poised on the cusp of transformation, Pune Cantonment Board and Pune together shall mark the new millennium with not just festivities but a focused resolve to make a difference to its residents in particular and the city in general by achieving the stated goal of becoming a Smart Cantonment. With this as the genesis of the publication you hold in your hands, we, the members of the Board have made an effort to interleave stories of our rich past and the vision for the future. The articles, photographs and collected pieces will prompt the older generation to reminisce and gen X to dream. We need to work in synergy and a spirit of co-operation to accomplish the dream of a vibrant and a modern Cantonment. I take this opportunity to thank the team members of Pune Cantonment Board and wish them all the very best in their future endeavors. We shall continue to work with utmost zeal, fervor and unity to achieve our Moto “कर्तव्यम् ददाति सिद्दि : “। All Rights Reserved
