Default Bombay meri jaan

Hi everyone,
Its nice to be here in the midst of like minded individuals. I am an orthopaedic surgeon, practicising in kerala. I was born and brought up in Bombay. I have travelled a lot, been in Bangalore, Mangalore, Madurai, wayanad. I am presently in Malappuram Kerala.

I learnt my driving in by-lanes of juhu, in a Tata sierra. Tata sierra was my first vehicle. I had it till last year. It spent 19 years with me. I have fond memories with that vehicle.
At the moment I own two diesels, a swift dzire and a Ritz. I plan to change both my cars soon.
I am interested in buying the polo GT Tdi and maybe next year the new jazz or the corolla altis.
I travel a lot and make frequent trips to Bangalore via wayanad.
Besides cars, I also love photography. I have a canon 550D and 1100D.
I also love eating good food and visiting new restaurants. I love traditional malayali cuisine.
Thanks for reading this introduction of mine,
Have a great day

Thanks a lot dear friend. God willing you will be able to achieve your goal. Just always respect your work and your patients. That is something I've always followed. Be it your internship or even later on. Always respect your patients, whichever subject you may follow, wherever you may practise.

This caught my eye. We're about the same age & I spent my college years in Juhu. Am sure you remember this fast maroon Sierra Turbo from around the area? We had a lot of fun giving diesel-torque lessons to Citys & Lancers

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome.

Your face seems very familiar. Did you live around Juhu church?

I can recollect seeing a few maroon coloured Turbo variants around Juhu Church. Did you own one of those?

Mine was a German Red coloured non-Turbo 1994 model. I had it for 20 years. Shared many memories with it.

Just recently gave it away with a heavy heart, as it was just occupying garage space. I will attach a few pictures.
