Default Hey fellow BHPians!

Just got an e-mail saying I got into this amazing forum! Finally did it, considering how many times I've tried!

I was named Veeradithya Ballal. I dropped into the world in 1997, and have loved cars ever since! I remember sitting in my granddad lap and driving(or steering) an old ambassador or shifting gears in his jeep- he was a Rally Driver who raced in the Himalayan rally. So, he pretty much kindled my interest! I remember my first hobby ever was cutting out pictures of cars and sticking them onto my very own scrapbook! My brother in law is a pretty big petrolhead, writes reviews too! He is - you can say - mentoring me as of now.

Born in Mangalore, lived the majority or my life in Bangalore(15 years), but now I've shifted to Udupi, just when Bangalore decides to up its car game!

I was more of a spec, stats guy, but I kind of 'morphed' into this one with the car, spiritual person- which frankly some people don't get- I'm still 16, so I'm not allowed to drive, although I have ' illegally' driven my father's Swift Dzire many,many times - but then who hasn't!

I'm just glad I've been able to get into the forum! Waiting to turn 18, so I can TD and write accurate reviews and hear from all of you!

Cheers!

Welcome Veeradithya!

Cars obviously run in your family. What was your Grandpa's name?

Do search through the many forum threads with driving tips, best practices etc. Never a better time to read them than when starting up.

See you around!

Hi Veeradithya, You are officially a part of this accurate, unbiased and truly knowledgeable encyclopedia of Automotive industry. Feels really great to see teenagers having so much interest in cars.

Very lucky my friend. When I joined here I had no prior mentoring. What I had was real undying passion for cars. Over here, I was supported by GTO, Rehaan and the whole team. Also, We both share the childhood hobby of cutting the pics of the cars.

Now that you have become a part of this forum, I hope your desire to drive would have increased manifolds but make sure you always do the right thing.

A feeling worth cherishing. We all shall look forward to your contribution and may you get lots of praise for your ideas.

Happy Driving!!

Thanks

Pretty much does! His name was Shantiverma Jain, lived in Wyanad. I guess he also drove in a rally in Jaipur. Reading the forum threads- will do!

Thank you for the warm welcome, never met someone who did that-feels like home already! I hope I'll get the same mentoring. Thanks again :-)
