The German Bakery, which had been ravaged by the blasts on February 13, 2010, now bears a much happier future. One can hear hammering sound inside. Floors are being polished, and the whole place bears a new look. A banner outside reads, "We're recruiting". Everything looks hopeful, but the new walk-in metal detector still enclosed in its plastic wraps is a poignant reminder of what had happened. Three years after the deadly blast, the place is now set to reopen with new management.
Earlier, a watering hole for ashram-goers and the hep college crowd, the German Bakery now is ready to reopen. With three additional floors for customers to hang out, the bakery will bear a new look. Although, the ground floor will still retain its informal shack-like look.
Kunal Udane, who will look after the management of the Bakery, is excited about the opening. "The Bakery will be open to public in a weeks time. Some revamp is still on," he said.
Snehal Kharose, who has now handed over the reigns of the bakery to Kunal Udane, son of Rajan Udane, said, "I have handed over the bakery's working and management to Vijay Shewale and Rajan Udane completely, in an agreement we made sometime last year. Though I will always be interested in its welfare, I won't be looking after it anymore. I decided on this due to my ill-health."
Udane, who plans to make the bakery into a space that anyone and everyone will enjoy hanging out in, said, "We have also included a eating space upstairs which will be more comfortable for families. We will also have an informal seating area on one floor, and of course the ground floor will maintain the old shack look."
Udane also informs that the security of the place has been beefed up, with several CCTV cameras monitoring the place. "I am happy that people are awaiting the reopening of the bakery. It is due to their support that we are able to stand back on our feet again," he said.
