Pharande Spaces Announces L-axis, PCMCs Premium Residential Project

Affordably Priced, Will Cater to Management Cadre Homebuyers.

Pune, June 27, 2012:  Pharande Spaces, the leading construction and development firm specializing in township properties in the PCMC area of Pune, is launching its premium residential project L-axis on the PCMC Spine Road, in Sector 6 of Pradhikaran. The launch date is June 28, 2012. The project is spread over 11 acres of verdant green land and will feature 2, 2.5 and 3 BHK apartments.

“Projects by Pharande Spaces have become a byword for value for money, and our mid-income housing townships in Moshi, Ravet and various locations in Pradhikaran have met with resounding success,” says Anil Pharande, Chairman – Pharande Spaces. “L-axis is our offering to the premium segment of home buyers who value even more advanced levels of comfort, generous living space and high-tech amenities.”

Spine Road, which is where this ahead-of-its time luxury housing project is located, has become one of the most talked about infrastructure embellishments in the progressive Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. This area is fundamentally at the core of Pune’s most vibrant industrial area, with many manufacturing giants such as Tata Motors, Force Motors and Bajaj Auto close by. It is also well-connected to the Chakan industrial area, which is home to national and international automobile companies like Volkswagen, Mercedes Benz and Mahindra & Mahindra. Apart from this, the Talawade IT Park is also within easy access.

In addition, L-axis is advantageously placed close to the Bhosari District Centre, Sadhu Vaswani International School, Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir, the PCNTDA Traffic Park and the upcoming International Exhibition and Convention Centre at Moshi. The project will feature technologically advanced security and lifestyle features to its residents and boasts of vast green spaces, with paved area kept at a minimum.

L-axis also includes a modern clubhouse with gymnasium, tennis and basketball courts, a multi-purpose community hall and a massive water-world-style swimming pool that offers limitless enjoyment to all family members.

“We have conceived L-axis in response to the huge demand for luxury living spaces coming from the managerial cadre of these industries,” explains Anil Pharande. “Keeping in mind the clientele, we have added every possible lifestyle feature, including multiple parking spaces, luxurious atriums and lobbies in each building and high-speed lifts.”

In fact, L-axis represents a first-of-its kind residential option for discerning homebuyers in the PCMC area for whom ease, luxury and convenience are the primary watchwords. No effort has been spared to make this a landmark development which will become its own distinctive address. The launch price for apartments at L-axis is currently Rs. 4500 per square foot, and will be augmented to Rs. 5000 per square foot thereafter.

Pharande explains that PCMC’s Spine Road is the perfect location for this project, providing a residential catchment that is a focal point of the region’s most prestigious industries. The 10-kilometer road connects two major highways and also runs through Pimpri Chinchwad’s industrial, residential and commercial areas on the eastern side.

Sri Sri Ravishankar To Inaugurate SSRVM School At Woodsville On January 15, 2012

Sri Sri Ravishankar, the iconic spiritual guru and founder of the internationally acclaimed Art of Living spiritual lifestyle system, will personally inaugurate Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir school at Woodsville, Moshi (Pimpri-Chinchwad) on January 15, 2012.


The inauguration and ‘bhoomi pujan’ ceremony will take place at 2.30 PM on January 15 at the school’s venue in Woodsville, a residential township project at Moshi in PCMC. Anil Pharande, Vice President of CREDAI Pune Metro and Chairman of leading township developers Pharande Spaces, will also be present as Shri Shri Ravishankarji conducts the ceremonial blessing of the school and addresses his followers and the school’s staff.

“The arrival of SSRVM in Pune’s Pimpri Chinchwad area is a landmark event in the history of a city which is known as the Oxford of the East,” says Anil Pharande. ”We are indeed honoured that Guruji has selected Woodsville as the place in which to launch this unique school, which will be a blessing to parents and children.”

The renowned spiritual leader, a staunch supporter and advocate of sustainable living, has personally selected Woodsville as SSRVM’s venue on the basis of its ecologically friendly configuration. Woodsville is Pimpri-Chinchwad’s most talked-about self-sustaining residential township.

The SSRVM educational model is a proven process of self-learning that builds life skills and nurtures leadership. It is staffed by highly qualified teachers who receive special orientation and training at Sri Sri Teachers Training Academy. In the words of H.H. Sri Sri Ravishankar, “Every parent would like to have a child whose personality shines wherever the child goes. It is the personality that is appreciated everywhere. Such pleasing personality is the main aim of this education.”

The educational system developed by Sri Sri Ravishankar employs an innovative and compassionate system of learning which features a curriculum for all-round development of its young students. The school’s syllabus is customized to NCERT guidelines and includes Sanskrit, Yoga, Karate, Sports, Dance, Music and Arts, which helps the child to blossom in all aspects of life. SSRVM is an initiative of the Art of Living Foundation, which has centres in more than 150 countries and enjoys a special consultative status with the United Nations Economic & Social Council of United Nations.

Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir To Launch At Woodsville By June 2012

DSC01881-300x278Following Anil Pharande’s personal audience with Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji himself at his Ashram in Bangalore a few days ago, I’m happy to report that His Holiness has given his complete blessing to the launch of the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir at Woodsville. We are all set to launch this holistic education institute at our 50-acre integrated living complex in PCMC by June, 2012.

In addition to the CBSE curriculum from Nursery to Std X (and possibly to Std XII), the school will offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities like Karnatik music, Bharat Natyam, sports, Taekwondo, elocution and spiritual guidance.

The implications in terms of the overall social profile and quality of education in Pimpri-Chinchwad can scarcely be described in a single article. We are all aware of the fact that the current education system in India lacks depth, and that it falls seriously short when it comes to imparting well-rounded education to our country’s future citizens.

Though we pride ourselves in being a spiritually-oriented nation, the fact is that our schooling system is based on obsolete, mechanical education models that focus on a drone-like academic performance. The so-called international schools just take this unfortunate trend to a less wholesome level. A more well-rounded education system by the revolutionary movement which Europe knows as ‘The Association for Inner Growth’ is definitely a major step forward for the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation.

When we heard that the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust was keen to open its first school in Pimpri Chinchwad at Woodsville, we enthusiastically welcomed the proposition. After all, we are creating a futuristic residential concept here – one that offers everything to its residents that the rest of Pune (and indeed Maharashtra) cannot. Having a holistic education institute here is a logical extension of our other offerings.

DSC018872-300x197Until recently – and like many of us – I knew Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji mainly as the founder of the Art of Living Foundation – the world’s largest volunteer based, humanitarian and educational NGO. Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji has established it in 1981 as part of his vision to promote a stress-free, non-violent approach to social life. Over 300 million people living in more than 140 countries are part of this ground-breaking spiritual movement, which is also closely associated with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

However, Mr. Pharande’s meeting with His Holiness at Bangalore was also a personal eye-opener for him. He got a much deeper understanding of this amazing man’s dream to fortify human values at the grass roots level. The presence of the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir at Woodsville now means a lot more to us than just huge value-addition to our residents.

We now see that this is the beginning of a revolution in the way the PCMC region will perceive education. Our children finally have a chance to obtain schooling of a quality and magnitude that genuinely enhances their lives – not just their mark sheets.

Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir School Comes To Pimpri-Chinchwad, Pune

Woodsville Chosen As The School’s Operational Venue


Woodsville, the 50-acre integrated residential complex being set up by Pharande Spaces opposite the International Exhibition and Convention Center in PCMC, has been selected by the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust as the site of its first Vidya Mandir in Pimpri-Chinchwad, Pune. Spread over two acres of prime land within the ultra-modern Woodsville project, the school will conduct classes from Nursery to Std X.

The Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir Trust chose to launch the school at Woodsville because the location was found to me nothing less than ideal. Woodsville is a fully facilitated, eco-friendly residential project set in a healthy, pollution-free environment. Moreover, it is easily accessible from all parts of Pimpri-Chinchwad and many parts of Pune by broad 6-lane roads.

About The Art of Living Trust’s Vidya Mandir Schools

“Education is not only an imparting of knowledge, but of values. It is this civilization’s greatest leveller. It has the power to empower the weakest of the weak, bring peace to the world and alleviate poverty. Education is often seen as the only lit path in the pursuit of happiness.” – His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji

The Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir (SSRVM) Trust was established in 1999 by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankarji as the educational wing of the world-renowned Art of Living program. The intention behind this educational wing is to promote holistic education in a stress-free and children-friendly environment.

Within a span of 10 years, the SSRVM Trust has launched more than 100 educational institutions, their scope ranging from pre-primary to post-graduate studies, in diverse fields such as management, journalism, Ayurveda, etc.

The Curriculum

The SSRVM at Woodsville will follow the CBSE syllabus. The curriculum is based on the research based recommendations of the NCERT, and is designed to make learning fun, activity-based and experiential. The children are provided with an integrated approach to learning, covering academic and personal development and the increase of global awareness.

Co-curricular Activities

Co-curricular activities such as Carnatic music, Bharata Natyam and folk dance, ‘shloka’ chanting, art, craft, drawing, Taekwondo, sports and games, elocution, debates, drama, yoga and meditation form an integral part of the school curriculum, helping the children develop a creative and holistic bend of mind.
