Talking Yippee! I am on hyper mode

Am I glad, happy, ecstatic? All of the adjectives will not be sufficient to express my immense satisfaction for making it in. Honestly, I am as happy as I was on the day I got my first pay.

Alright then, I am Sumanth and I have lived my life in Bangalore and can call myself a typical old-time Bangalorean. I have a bachelorís degree in business administration from Christ College and my daily bread comes from selling petrol and diesel to a lot of automobile drivers/riders in South Bangalore. I run a Bharat Petroleum Retail Outlet which is a ISO certified and fully automated retail outlet in JP Nagar.

My interests include cricket, motor racing, reading, traveling, movies, and music.

It must be the year 2007, when I first heard of Team-BHP from my friend who mentioned to look it up for traveling tips for a drive to Goa, and from then on I have been hooked to this site for most of automobile related information. Initially, it never occurred to me on joining the forum, and till mid-2008 never seriously thought of posting. I did became a member and would only browse through the various threads. It started growing on me and eventually while reading some of the posts clicked on the quote, new reply button which did not work, and I got a message which stated that I did not have right to post. Alas, disappointment would be the least that could be expressed about my feeling on that moment, and I went all over the site to figure out how to get the posting rights. Thus, began my saga which got completed just couple of days back when I read a mail which said that my registration is APPROVED. It took four attempts over the past seven years to get here and every time I failed, I would sit sad for at least a week brooding over it and trying to find out what would have made these guys to approve me and would come back again and try only to fail. I stopped trying for a couple of years in between but the desire was not to recede and I tried again in 2012 when I picked up my Skoda Yeti. I failed again and the disappointment kept me away from trying again for a year or so. I tried again in 2014 and did not make it but anyways it is all wiped clean with my induction now.


My garage started with my fatherís Vijay Super and Bajaj Super which got gifted to me on my completion of Higher Secondary. My first bike was a Hero Honda CD 100SS after my completion of 12th which was not what I desired but eventually carried my dreams and my first date was on that bike. I moved to Bajaj Kawasaki RTZ which was with me for 14 years till I gave it up for a Bajaj Pulsar 150 ES. While I was biking, my family picked up an Amby in which we travelled as a family till my father picked up a Maruthi van. It was a rage and I still remember we had visitors to my place for months only to check out the van as it was recently launched and everyone wanted to know how and whatís of it. Driving an Amby required muscles and Maruthi would require just a finger to drive; wow! It was extraordinary experience. Our other cars during the 90s were a Maruthi 800, Tata Sumo, and the unforgettable Hyundai Santro.


Our Current Cars are (2003) Maruthi 800, (2006) Fiesta, (2014) Honda Amaze, and my prized possession (2012) Skoda Yeti.
Oh boy! I am looking forward to the new journey with Team-BHP what with all of the brilliant and passionate blokes and their immense knowledge about men, machines, and skill-sets, which they have been sharing with all of us and educating us immensely


Finally, I thank Team-BHP mods for finally let me in this wonderful forum and giving me a platform to share my experiences and contribute whatever I can to the betterment and safety of the driving enthusiasts.

Nice intro and welcome on board, fellow Banglorean! You like cricket, motor sport and reading? We ought to bump into each other at a Bangalore meet. Oh, and you should add 'waiting in traffic jams' to your list of interests

Quite a long list of cars you've owned. The Yeti is my personal favourite. It's an amazingly talented yet underrated car. I'd love to hear about your experience with the beast.

Most important, remember to abide by the rules, and enjoy as the expert let loose their knowledge!

Have a lovely stay.

Warm welcome. Perhaps, you could be the first fuel retailer in the forum.
Hope that a Team-Bhp sticker would soon find a way into the cabin glass.
