Being my home town, Aurangabad has always been close to my heart, because I am brought up here. With loads of my memories right from as a Kid to fully grown up, I just love this place its climate always bright, the language of course Marathi my favourite one to always communicate, the cuisine is just awesome like, Puran Poli, Thecha, Kande Pohe and many more to list.
