Hello folks!!

So Happy to have finally cracked the code... ( If you find this post looong then bear with me)
I am Kushal Gupta from Chandigarh-The City Beautiful, The Best Planned City, Pride of India (being kind of show-off but i am very proud of this city).

I was a car nut since i was a 3 years old naughty brat (i used to snatch toy cars from people.)
This started when my parents took me to my cousins house, he used to have a swanky new coca cola toy truck and being attracted to it i snatched it from him and took it with me back home ( after a lot of Siyapa ).

December 2008
After Destroying a fortune worth of cars ( including hot wheels, couple of imported remote control cars, etc) my love for cars took a whole new definition after my parents decided to buy our first car ( baby Chevy aka The Spark) after being reluctant all these years ( Dad loved his good ol chetak).

We started this process in july and after countless visits to different showrooms decided to bring baby chevy home on 23rd December.
I used to spend hours sitting inside it to absorb the feeling of our first car and decided to not destroy my new toy, and i started learning to drive a car from my grandmothers driver.

After 7 years baby chevy has clocked 56k kms and has not disappointed me till now.

May 2010
After deciding to join engineering there was a need for a new two wheeler for my daily up down to IIT tuitions my parents a new baby alongside the chetak and baby chevy, the honda aviator aka hawabaaz. This my first personal vehicle.

May 2012
I was desperately waiting for this month as i would get my official drivers licence and be able to drive the baby chevy ( although i have driven it unofficially but this would be OFFICIAL).

Now alongside baby chevy i have driven a lot many cars as i have a knack for asking the keys from people who have different cars. I have driven the Acura MDX, Merc E, The Bad ass Chevy (Camaro), Honda Odyssey (all of these while i was visiting my uncle in USA), Hyundai i20, and the list goes long.

So if i have the luck to meet some of the members, I may ask you for the keys.

Thanks and Rab Rakha
-Kushal

P.S. People who are in chandigarh at any point of time can contact me if they need any kind of help.

SSA and welcome aboard.

How is city beautiful doing these days? I've heard it's becoming clogged up with traffic now just like the big cities.

City Beautiful is beautiful as always. Yes Traffic has increased manyfold but because the city is compact and planned we can re-route and prevent it very easily, but for those who are stuck in the jams the delay is for 15 minutes max.

Sat Sri Akal Kushal
Welcome to the wonderful community. It feels special to have a bhpian in vicinity and the best part is we have same birth year.

Do go through forum rules here

Indeed, the traffic has increased from last few years and peak hours last longer than usual. On the flip side, Chandigarh Administration deploys enough policemen on busy intersections and chowks to regulate traffic.

Hey Kushal_Gupta, welcome aboard mate. Good to see other folks from Chandigarh and around joining the forum as well. Should make for a great time if and when we do plan for a Chandigarh meet someday.

Welcome to you too Afterburner. Do start an introduction thread as well so that other members can know a little more about you. Hope you have a great time here. Cheers!
