Talking I finally have a voice!

Happiness is a relative term they say.

A few people out there understand the importance of being part of a community that understands who you are. Well, my story, I tell you in verse. A few lines that explain how I feel :

The blinding white light
With words that draw out an explanation
They teach me what I know, yet
In hollow years I grow

They say thy engine is noisy
For me, it is sheer music
A drum beat in sync with my heart

I was but mute
For I wish to speak but
The one who moderates would like to see more passion
I write again and fail again

My fate I accept and write one last time
With hope that is faint and words unspoken
I am content with my lot
And my story ends

But wait, I see a streak of light
Was it an honest mistake?
Do I see the truth or is it one of my myriad dreams!

Approved says he
I reach Cloud number 9, but
my feet are still planted like my ride

Oh! This must be a dream
Is this really true?!

I feel like I have completed my journey
And thereís no place like home.
Home, where I have a voice and where I truly belong

To Quote one of the best poets Ė Emily Dickinson

Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

About me: Iím Shannon, I work at a Product Development org. I head some Strategic communication domain.. Zzzzz
The best part of my job is the drive from home to my work place and back. Itís such a great feeling to drive!

What I like doing: Iím a musician, writer and designer by passion. I also create images to aid my design. I play for two bands Ė Wishing Well (Vocalist, Delhi) & The Buzz Theory (Drummer ,Bangalore). I love to drive and somehow all of my other hobbies fit into the scene so well.

Iím really really glad to be part of this community and while the smiley count is restricted to two. Iíd encourage you to imagine a million smiles placed right here

My earlier office commute entailed a 14 km drive. To beat the traffic, in later years, I used to leave home at 0800. Remember looking forward to the drive more than arriving at work.

Nice. Played the acoustic guitar all through my college years. A skill I left behind with regret.

So, we know by now that you love to drive. How about a couple of lines on what you drive. Or better yet, an ownership report?

Drive safe buddy.

Welcome aboard Shannon and the last few intros are quite refreshing to read and looking back at mine, i felt mine was totally plain-jane with none of the liveliness i have associated myself with. Last but not the least, enjoy your stay

A nice intro Shannon great to see you here!

Maybe you canput up your car buying query in the portal for comments and suggestions by the Seniors or a poll, I am sure you'll get hands-on information and a detailed list of pros & cons on finalizing your car.

Have a wonderful stay!

Thanks a ton for your kind words GTO! I have read through your posts several times and It's indeed an honour to finally converse with you. We should try playing some music together sometime! It'll be good to get some deep purple action

Well sai_ace, the battle raged between the Verna and the Vento for over a month. It wasn't easy but I do believe that I made a good choice. Thanks a lot for your advise, it helped me quite a bit!

Thanks nbk.0707! I finally picked up the Vento. Your breakdown of various cars in the industry was of huge help to me.

About the cars I drive :

Esteem 2006 | Vxi - Pearl Silver
WagonR 2010 | Lxi - Baker's Chocolate
Vento Diesel | Highline - Pepper Grey

A lot to come, especially waiting to put up the buying/ initial ownership experience of the Vento

Welcome to the family SVP (The name did ring some bells in my mind. Not sure if the other SVP is on T-BHP or not). Thanks for the unique introduction

Looking forward to meet you at Bangalore meet and also see you & your band perform live.

And yes, my choice among Verna & Rapid is 'Vento'

My reply looks terribly misaligned! It looked half decent in the preview section. I wonder what I did wrong there.

Thanks pahwa! We should surely catch up soon.


Note from Support: The YouTube link had come up wrong with a double http:// (i.e. http://http://youtube...).

Hi SVP

Welcome to the community of petrol heads. Though your engine failed to start initially, decarbonization has helped start the car, I presume. Don't mix drumming and driving please! Hope to see lot more poems errr..... poetic travelogues soon and welcome on board again.
