Sudev sir - Thanks a ton for giving me this opportunity to hook me up with Raja for the storm, I can't thank you enough for the same.

One thing that I heard from many people in the camp is that there are 2 kinds of people in the storm
1 - those who officiate or participate and never come back

2 -those who officiate or participate and always coming back

I definetely fall in the latter category will keep coming back and hopefuly in my own 4x4

Finished the ss4 leg and the rally is moving on to ss5...sunny appeared to be the fastest with his only left leg braking techniques

New experience of officating the DZ stage and also the love from the children around the village. They even got us bajre ki roti subji and cold lchaacch.. Rode a cycle took some picttures with the kids which I would post later as my BB hangs everytime I do that and also running low on battery
Currently I'm on my way to Bikaner to setlle for the day. 200 kms to go before I hit the sack

Hi harishnayak:

you are a lucky man dude. Any updates regarding standings so far?
I am checking official website for desert daily, but not so helpful, oh yes, tracking system is there but still not up to the mark. Please (if you can) update us all regarding daily leaders.

As per tracking mechanism Randeep is in Delhi, Why? and How?
