I read this just now.

Stupendous effort Navin. I bow to thee.

There would be nothing more staisfying than knowing that you managed to carry out your mission successfully. Kudos to you and your team.

The way you have narrated each and every detail makes me feel that I am also there in the SUV along with you. Mindblowing...!!! i can't stop appreciating.

Truly, "ability is only a frame of the mind" (slightly modifying your quote... hope you don't mind)

Brilliant - Shows us what Determination can do !!

Gives me 2 Ideas -

Buy a SAFARI now for Heaven's Sake !!!

Do the Ladakh - Leh Trip !!! Do not be a Lazy Bugger and stop thinking that driving to Manali & Mussoorie is an adventure road trip

7. Our timing is a Limca World Record now and a first. This TATA Safari became the first private vehicle to reach the top of Marsimik La.
The last line is well placed. This guy is a true petrohead or in this case Dieselhead.

That was indeed a great feat

Amazing story of courage and determination. Kudos to you Navin. Sometimes when we have everything, we do not realize our potential.

Out of words.....awesome, inspirational, motivational, mind over matter..call it what ever... the feat achieved by Navin and his 6 crew members is mindblowing and tells each one of us, stuck in whatever routine or rut to get out there and just do it. I hope NDTV plays the video on their channel again.

I am not sure if I am that good a driver to attempt something like that but I would love to be part of a crew eventhough I would be s***ing in my pants going up those steep climbs. Hats off mates and congrats to Tata Safari and M800

Excellent!!! Hats off to you Mr. Navin. Kudos to his crew for standing by him.
And what a realistic proof for Tata Safari's abilities.

Navin, I happened to read your travelogue on Marsimik La just now only. It is awesome. Words fail me to express my appreciation to your unparalleled effort. My sincerest congratulations.

May you continue to achieve greater 'heights' in the future.
