Cool Hello from a prodigal son ...

Hello. Glad and honored for the opportunity to be a part of the Team-BHP community.

I am a entrepreneur in social work, i.e. am trying to do good while doing well. I've owned a spectrum of cars over the years all the way from a humble Saturn (first) to a slightly more luxurious Mercedes E430 (most recent) - none in India, though I learned how to drive on a Maruti 800 way back when.

I came across Team-BHP while researching cars in India - things having changed much since the days when I was last involved in purchasing an Indian car (light green 800). Thank you to the Team-BHP community for the time and effort of so many that has made this forum an invaluable resource for car (and bike) info. I hope to give as much as I have received, if not more in the coming days.

Thanks to the admins. for a really prompt approval.

Thank you. Cheiron is a play on Chiron the Archer associated with Sagittarius. Prodigal son refers to returning to India after decade plus abroad to a warm welcome similar to the New Testament parable in Luke.

Welcome aboard Cheiron!!
And welcome back to India!!

By the way, Chiron is a centaur in Greek mythology, is he not? A wise centaur known for his knowledge of healing and he tutored Achilles as well..

A warm welcome Cheiron to the league of BHPians. Hope to hear some insightful contributions from all your experiences in and out of our land and also cross paths in some BHP meet!

Also since we know now what your login ID means, it would be good to know your real name as well and yes we have such a thread going (Just in case you have not found or posted already)-
