The Rivers of Pune are in an orange flood once or twice in the monsoon. For enthusiasts such as Mumbiram that used to be a day for celebration. Mumbiram would be rushing from one bridge to another to witness his favourite familiar spectacle from his favourite spots.
Here we are on the bank of the Mula-Mutha on the northern side at Yeravda. The burning ghat in Koregaon Park and the crematorium in Yeravda are exactly opposite each other across the river. The burning ghat in Koregaon Park was Mumbiram’s favourite spot. He visited it nearly every day. It was his living room. The crematorium across the river was the place where Kusum’s three brothers and also her father were cremated. But the day of the Flood was different.
There is a Shiva temple call Amareshwar on the riverbank in Yeravda. Mumbiram has shown how some romantic young people are spending the day of the flood at the river.
