Hi all. Just got in after continuous pursuasion from my best buddy, Rudra. I'm looking forward to interacting with you all and am already beginning to smell the rubber burning!!!

My wife lla and I drive a Honda City 1.5 and an Indica V2 Diesel. Ialso have a Bullet 500 and a mint condition yezdi Roadking 250 which I tool around on on weekends. *
We have a 41/2 year old daughter Naina who's also beginning to be a motorhead!

By the way, I work at a japanese company called FANUC India and we make CNC controls and Industrial Robots (basically factory automation equipment). I'm into hardware maintenance and also do some PR work on the side. I'm also involved in ISO 9001-2000 activity and an a qualified internal quality auditor


take care,
Akhi

P.S. By the way Rudra said he won't give me a drink unless I write my intro. Hence..

Ajmat, I don't think you can say these. Ask yourself how many times I called you for a drink?
I tell you, some people are so busy with their golf and what not!!!

Adix, I'm sorry. Next time you come here.. I promise lots of mocktails.

Welcome aboard , pal. The more you make it back to the board, the more you'll love it. It's a vicious cycle i tell you.

P.S.: It's funny how Rudra sahib has become the board's official Bling man. Quite the opposite of what you would like, isn't it Rudra?

Hey guys, Thanks for the warm welcome!! Sorry I did'nt respond earlier

Anyways, just thought I'd share some info about my Honda City 1.5. It's a Type1 model (1998) and runs headers and a Magnaflow exhaust. The headers have been done by J. Anand of Coimbatore. The car's white and looks totally stock from outside. Kind of like a "wolf in sheep's clothes". I picked it up just a week back and am still discovering the joys of driving one of these totally fun cars!!

Our Indica is the family workhorse and is thoroughly enjoyable to drive. TATA seems to have doen the trick and got it right!

Well, will write again soon. may need some help with selling of my old 1998 Esteem LX (Golden Beige). Has headers and free-flow exhaust, Group N spec engine and suspension and sump-gaurd. Now Looking for a new car-lover home.

Take care all of you
Akhi

Naina is my daughter's name!
