Arrow Who am I >>

Hello

A big cheer from Coorg to all Bhpians and thank you moderators for letting me through.
I call myself Graven5 on the forum, aged 29, and a former HR Professional.
Currently, in a 'no place like home' life phase and learning to grow coffee for a living.After 15 years of living in Bangalore, I decided to get back home for good.
Now the automotive side in short - I live on motor blood like most of you.God wanted me to be a car with character but parental prayers had other plans.
The addiction has only grown from the days of learning to steer on a Mahindra CJ3B when the feet never touched the pedal or reading automotive material everyday(Team-BHP was one in the curious search) to today's flowing garage of eight.The humble list - Jawa 250,Yezdi Roadking,TVS Fiero,TVS Apache,Maruti Suzuki 800,Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire ,Mahindra CJ3B LHD, CJ3B RHD and counting.

Marriage beckons in April and the best part of it - Not a new wife but, the need for a new car.

Hope to be driven by Team-bhp till my Grave calls !

You are a Hong Kong Special forces officer who's contingent was ambushed while on a dangerous mission, and you were rescued by tribals in Africa.

Just kidding
Welcome to the forum and enjoy your stay!

Welcome to another Kodava on TBHP.

Will look forward to your contributions to this wonderful Forum. Kodagu offers for some wonderful opportunities to write travelogues.

All the best

Cheers

Wow! So there are people who just don't keep ranting this during appraisals, but actually do it!

Congratulations! And, Welcome aboard!

Hey Graven5, a big hug from Chennai!! Its interesting to see a HR professional taking up a coffee growing career. My best wishes for that. I too often dream about doing my dream career, Farming

But right now designing spaces and buildings. Enjoy you're stay here and hope to see you here often

Thanks Vinotys. Actually, mine is more of an inheritance than a career.
Stick on to design - good move.

Aged 29 and already a "former" HR professional?
Retired from life? or Retired for life?

Your move to Coorg tells me the second is probably true!

Welcome and all the best.

Thanks ampere. You read that right and it was an early move -Was a case of thinking through priorities and interest.
Not retired though, work life here too and no regrets.
