Default Hello, I知 Aayush

Hi. I am Aayush Arya from Siliguri, in West Bengal.

Having always been passionate about technology, I used to be a pretty active member of the Digit Forum in its heyday. That led to a writing assignment with the company, which eventually pushed me into a career in freelance technology journalism while I was still in high school.

In a span of six years, I wrote for several publications, like Apple Matters, Macworld and Smoking Apples. My freelance career culminated in a full-time position with The Next Web, where I served as India Editor & Apps Co-Editor for a year.

I shifted from writing to interior design in 2012, when I founded 6Hues Interior Design Studio in Siliguri, and have been at it for five years now. I知 28, and that痴 been my professional career so far.

The other notable thing I did in 2012 was buy my first預nd, so far, only幼ar: the Hyundai Verna 1.6D SX(O) MT. It has served me well, but has required a little more maintenance than I was used to with our 16-year-old Hyundai Santro. It is still a fantastic car though!

When deciding which car to buy, Team-BHP was an invaluable research tool and I spent hours poring over official review and ownership threads on this forum. Like most of you here, I am sure, I am an immaculate researcher and will study everything to the finest detail before making a decision. This forum is the ideal place for obsessives like me.

I知 currently in the market for a new car and will make a thread about it if I see the need for it. I have already spent a month mulling it over and reading Team-BHP about prospective models. I have my eyes set on the India bound Maruti Suzuki S-Cross 2017, should it be launched with a powerful petrol motor mated to an AGS transmission in the top trim.

But that痴 a discussion for another day. For now, I could not be more pleased to be writing this here, on my first ever thread on Team-BHP. This was a long time coming. I know it値l be a whale of a time discussing cars with fellow enthusiasts like you, and I cannot wait to get started.

Enjoy your drive with T-BHP. You have very good and passionate co passengers here.

Career transitioning to Interior design from editing is quite amazing. Interior designing is something I am currently attracted to.Will be good to learn from you before I start working on my house next year.

Welcome Aayush! Good to have you on Team-BHP.

I've been a long time reader of MacWorld - maybe I've read some of your work. I'm sure you will be a frequent poster here - our gadgets and software threads.



Go through here once for the various rules of the forum.

Thank you. I've written over two thousand articles for Macworld, so I'm sure you've read a few. The stuff relevant to India would always be snatched up by me, rare though it used to be back then.

Welcome Aayush!
Glad to welcome you on forum.

Is there a Nexa dealer at Siliguri? Didn't spot any. In fact, I just came back from Siliguri today. Hope to see you soon in real as well.

Hi! I just posted in the Siliguri thread you started two years ago suggesting that we meet up. I recently completed a house renovation project in Purnea and am currently working on two flats in Siliguri which belong to residents of Purnea. I would love to host you at our office when you come here next.

Mr. Basant Agarwal of Sevoke Motors recently opened a Nexa showroom as well. The RM there made a pretty convincing case for the S-Cross when I壇 went there looking for the Vitara Brezza (I got confused about which showroom it would be in). I致e all but assured him that I will be his first customer when the petrol automatic S-Cross facelift is launched.
