Very sorry to hear about your father.
You should make sure to put that as an explanation for the gap in your work history whenever you apply. You might have to start at beginner's level again because you have been out of programming work for those three years.

- I think certification is a big plus.Try to acquire one more like Scwcd or Scbcd or may be Scjd.
- You can also show your 8 months experience.
- An Explanation for the gap in your work history.(They'll definitely understand.But You have to be extraordinary because emotion never works in case of business).
- You can use these chetanas,monster,naukri,dice to search jobs in pune.There are tons of IT giants are there.

This may sound a bit cold, but make sure that you don't focus on it. In fact, it should be one of the few cases where it is a quick answer is better. Just answer it and move on with the rest of the interview. If you let it, this topic can take the bulk of the interview, leaving the interviewer with no assessment of your skills.
I dont mean to be discouraging, but that article mentions many things that we need to know as a beginner in the IT industry.
The best part : no coaching class and the like will give you such information. They will just teach you "hello world" and silly stuff like that.
While you are looking for job opportunities, make some projects on your own - thats what i did.

Thanks For All.
I saw thats links. definitely it will be helpful for me.i will do my maximum efforts for that.
if you know any other thing which will help for me,then please tell me.
Dont let the 3 year gap get your confidence down, it is perfectly all right to take a sabbatical for family reasons.dont be let down with it , its not the end of the world if 2-3 companies do not consider your profile because of the gap.there are others who might consider your profile. infact , i too have a 3 year gap in my career, i have a total of 4 yrs experience in java/j2ee, but had to go back to my hometown because my father was suffering from kidney failure , couldnt continue work in bangalore as i though being with family at this time of crisis would be a better option ( couldnt do bangalore - kolkata with a full time job) , i had initially planned for a 1 year break in career but as things turned out it became 2 yrs and then 3 , but all this while i didnt stay off with my programming skills , i kept learning new skills and enhancing my previous skills, , its been 45 days since i started looking for a job and attending interviews , the initial 3-4 interviews were bad , but then after that i got a grip( since i have been out of touch for quite a while) and then the interviews were the easiest to clear, now i have 3 offers in hand , all from big MNC's in bangalore, i can go in for more interviews and ask for a better pay package but i guess i need some rest and freaking around till i start with my new job.
So baseline is to be very good with all the skills you mention in your resume(know them ouside down) and be confident when you answer about your break, say that your sabbatical was a planned decision .
hope this helps , if you need advise on the stuff you require to prepare for interviews PM me and i will send you some documents and .pdf files which might help you with types of question you can be asked, i have sort of consolidated list of questions and my corrrect answers along with the questions. set up a time line for preparation and a time line for starting taking interviews and then hit it off, there are thousands jobs out there ,and you just need one.....go for it man....

yes i will send you the stuff in your mail id, also why are you looking out for small scale companies, aim for big MNC's they also hire freshers, or guys with some experience , i have some friends in pune who shifted from bangalore , they say pune is better than bangalore and there are lots of IT companies , just post your resume in the job sites mentioning your 8 months experience, and see how many people call you for the interview,you will be flooded with calls. The main thing is that you will need to crack the interview, for that you will need to be good with the skills, so you know what to do.
