Now that is an under statement. Ritesh be careful. If his gypsy is humble then your car is bone stock.

I would love to come and see you guys do your mud magic. And I live next to Total Mall, on Sarjapur road.

Of course, don't have a 4x4 yet, just coming over to watch the fun...

Yes. Then at the OTR spot don't say that there is no 'water' to drink. So carry enough 'water' bottles please.

I will come. I don't have a 4X4. But if I come in my car till TOTAL mall, then after that, is there some place to park 'not-so-humble' cars like Swift at the OTR spot Mr. Khan?

No idea my friend. This is the first time I will be going in that direction so am not sure if you could drive to the OTR spot or not in your Swift.

However, if you look at the pictures from the earlier OTR at this spot, you would see motorcycles etc at that spot. I am assuming that one could drive till there and park. I will leave that for 'Dwaraka' to comment and advise.

NOTE to All: folks coming in your cars etc, the responsibility of finding a place to park and the safety of your cars would be your responsibility. It's kind of obvious and understood, but wanted to still make this clear so that later we don't have any confusion.

Cheers,
