Smile And here goes my story..P.S. Hello to all

Very warm greetings to all reading , and before you go any further I would like to tell you in advance it is a LONG read ..

Well its been a rough ride , but here I am , AGAIN..

Cars have not exactly been the biggest point of interest for any of my family members , im sure my head must have banged really hard when i was born , but anyways i know one thing and one thing only , I LOVE CARS.

I am Prannoy Shekhar Semwal and i hail from the great city named DEHRADUN which was earlier called a city of GRAY HEADS AND GREEN SHEDS.
Obviously now its nothing like that.

I am a second year law student pursuing studies from Ahmedabad.

My love for cars started long back , so long infact that i dont remember exactly when the doctor replaced blood with petrol in my veins .

But my love for team-bhp started four years back in 2008. I was in class 10th back then . And i while surfing for cars bumped upon this site , team-bhp. The name interested me a lot , and the content even more !! So much infact that i was hooked on to it 24x7.

I had to become a member in order to post my replies to certain topics in the forum which i just could not resist . And then i applied for the team-bhp membership and the wait started.

It all came to a sudden halt when the membership got declined. I didn't loose hope though and created a new account from a different mail address and tried re registering . Bad news again and the membership didn't get approved again .

After this , i went back to being a " secret admirer " of team -bhp and with 12th class coming soon , i was too busy trying to answer the unanswerable questions that has plagued teen minds for ages , what to do after 12th??

But something in me was just not satisfied and then one night when the clock struck 3, i threw away my physics book and opened my laptop .
First made a new account on some email client and then re registered as Enigma on team-bhp and voila i was granted membership after a couple of days.
I was so happy i literally threw a party ,a years wait was finally over on 17th December 2009. But the pain was only over to cause some more..

Now by this time , i was in class 12th and coaching had made life hectic and i felt terrible paying less attention to team-bhp but sometimes a man has to sacrifice some things in life so that he can have them back again later.

And then one day when i tried to log into my team bhp account it said invalid password??!!??
I tried again and my laptop screen showed exactly the same message ..
I was shocked out of my wits and after trying unsuccessfully for 5 times and being debarred from doing the same for another 15mins i tried opening my mail box to see what happened , but that i did only to realize that i had forgotten the password of not only my team-bhp account but also my mail box.

Dont know how , maybe it was all that physics, chemistry and maths jumbled up but i had lost the one thing that meant the most to me in my life , my team-bhp account :(
Tried a lot but all my efforts were in vain.

I was so taken a back i thought i will never register again on the community , but as it turns out you really cant avoid the thing you love the most , can you ??

Same thing happened again , the same spark that i had intentionally killed rose from its berried ashes like a phoenix and i was up again trying to register myself on team bhp.

And after 4 unsuccessful tries to re register myself , im here AGAIN.

A lot of things have changed in these 3 years, but my love for cars remains undisputed. A lot of people have asked me why didn't you choose a career in automobile engineering when you love cars so much . I to was supposed to to that , my parents honestly believed that it would be apocalyptical if i would end up doing anything else , as cars is all that i knew about .

But then not everything falls into place and at the end moment i choose law as a field of interest .

About me :-

I am a fun loving person and like to live my life to the fullest .
I am a debater at heart and im really looking forward to some amazing debates on the forum
Rest ,im sure that you all will evaluate me correctly as time progresses .

FINALLY,

Thank you to everyone for reading through this LONG post .

Cheers
