Hurrycane, can please tell me which of your friend gave you this photos?

Mods: Please note that all those photo are clicked by me on my personal visit there & I've already posted the same earlier in the same forum. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...lant-pune.html (Mercedes-Benz Inaugurates New Manufacturing Plant in Pune). It seems to be duplication, hence please look into the matter.
