Pune, India India (PressExposure) August 19, 2006 -- Pune360.com has been around for over 6 months now. It's widely used as a portal for news, classifieds and also for the new Real Estate section. Localites as well as Pune residents living abroad have been very appreciative of the portal. Oft quoted reasons being: ease of use, lack of clutter, regular news updates. The Writing Wall has been the 'sleeper hit' for Pune360.com.
When we started with the Writing Wall we were very unsure whether the city was ready for something so esoteric. But we were clearly underestimating Pune. Pune, being the Oxford of the East, has its fair share of literary folks and they have been kind enough to extend their full support to this section. We've got articles from enthusiastic Puneites and the Wall reflects travel stories, current affairs and many creative works.
The Writing Wall has an exclusive Editor who updates the section with his article, at least every fortnight. The Editor also vets all articles from independent users.
Articles for publication should be sent to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Pune360.com has also received accolades for the Real Estate section. Specially for its single page layout with all details covered. The comprehensive picture gallery too is a first for any Indian website.
Recently Pune360.com launched its mid-year calendar. This was a humorous take for folks who had missed their New Year resolution. This was the first for any company and no one had heard about a mid-year calendar before. We made it happen!! The response so far has been amazing and we've not been able to keep up with demand.
Pune360.com has a few more sections planned. Next on the cards is a Movies listing section. This will cover all theatres and all shows for the city, in an easy to read/access format.
Future sections planned include a City page that covers all local landmarks, information related to travel. Pretty much a comprehensive City Guide. We're exploring various aspects here and this is still in the design phase.
We also have another surprise that we wouldn't like to mention right now. You'll have to look out for this one. We assure you that it will be worth the wait.
