Shakir and Vijay: Hats off Guys. What a heavenly feeling it must have been. The last two km is quite a challenge.

Please pass on my appreciation to Rajesh for his excellent photogrpahy as well as the rest of your team. Your Gypsys look great in the scenic background.

Still remeber him playing golf in the summer,

Seriously miss the fun of being an officer in the Indian Army, Even today i regert, & where as freinds who were trained by my father have actually joined his own unit,

Field posting in the army is different & the best part is that you are in the remotest of places & that's where you get to see the beauty of the nature,

It is a must we all should go there & see the place once in your life time,

earlier it wasnt allowed for the civilian, today we can don't miss the chance,

best regards
Vinay Thomas

Salute to your father mate.
All offroaders will be cursing you of not being an officer so we can have easy ride to all difficult terrain without all permit fundas.
