Smile 3 is my lucky number! And now, I am here

Hello dear BHPians!

I am Raviraj from Virar (Mumbai).
I was born in July, 1991 and I've completed my graduation in Multimedia and Animation.
Presently I am on a job hunt and so I spend my free time (lots of it actually!) on Team-BHP!
I'm also very passionate about Automotive-design and sketch them cars, buses, trucks whenever and wherever I find a piece of blank paper and some time and blog about it.
I wish to become an automotive designer some-day! Although I donít know how that is going to happen.

My relatives, friends and their friends call me a total car-nut! Some friends think that may marry a car someday!
My parents hate the fact that the first lot of toys that they had bought for me were cars and how I am totally hypnotized and possessed by them till now.
My mom believes that my obsession with cars has now gone beyond her control and she unsuccessfully tries various methods to let me come out of it!

I dream about owning my first ever car and spend a portion of my night's dream creating a virtual simulation of driving it in my dreams.

My biggest fears are extreme heights, vast stretches of sea and that day which comes every two years when my dad sells my car magazine collection (ironically itís the dad himself who bring them every month for me!) and brochures to the scrap dealer!

Seeing the same breed of petrol-heads and to be a part of this very passionate group is what motivated me to apply for membership! 2 times my application attempt was unsuccessful (I know the reason now! I used to limit it at 120 alphabets!) but I knew it that I would be able to make it here on my third attempt and voila! Today is that day! My Diwali gift.

Also, my most important reason to join Team-BHP is to be able to communicate with my fellow BHPians for their help in-case I am bound by any sort of technical or non-technical automotive query; the solution for which I can only be able to find here. Well, right now I am so happy to be here that only now I have realized that my intro has gone a bit too long!

Regards!
Raviraj S.

Thank you! Well...yes, I've mentioned it in the intro. I wasn't able to figure out what was I doing wrong until I realized my folly.

Hi RavSam!

I like how you've written about dreaming to own a car.
We all have! And I'm sure you'll get there soon.

Keep posting.

Hello Humbleroadster!

Thanks mate!
True that! I hope to acquire one in the near future.
And that's an awesome GT TSi that you have!
I am biased towards automatic cars!

See you!
RavSam

Welcome Raviraj.
Hope you enjoy yourself in the forum.

BTW, your designs are extremely cool. Just tweet the blog to all car makers.

Regards,
D4D

P.S. On a lighter note:

I consider you engaged to your car.

Thank you Stiggy! I'm glad that you liked them!
When I was designing the Magnifico I was actually involved in an argument with a friend and so that might have resulted in it coming out well(full of emotions).

Hey D4D! Thanks a lot man! How I wish tweeting it would help. How will it work? I don't think they would hire unless I have the "degree" in that which is so darn expensive to pursue.
Any other way that can be done? Sending portfolios via email gets 'lost'. Also the company HR people won't usually sort that out (design from other job applications).

And yes, you are right about that! Polygamy is not illegal in the case of cars/bikes I guess!

Did not know this would turn out to be good for me.

On an even lighter note, this explains how Adolf Hitler designed the first VW Beetle (though they say he stole it from a Jewish designer)
