Welcome to teambhp Mr.Manoj Biswas - as you are from Simla and you have worked with the Himalayan Rally in 1987 and 1988, you must be knowing Wing Commander Condillac (Condi to all of us). He has a bungalow next to the Raj Bhavan in Simla. Can you please provide this information ? I stayed in his bungalow in 1987 when I route surveyed the 1987 Himalayan Rally.

@Sush, thanks!

@Khanak, thank you will post some pics for sure

@Dhabhar.Behram, amazing to find you here so quickly Sir! It's a pleasure to catch up with one of the veterans of Indian motor sport, I remember you and your fantastic Fiat very well. Coincidently, I just saw some pictures of yours posted by Cyrus on another forum.

Condi was my mentor and my rally guru and the founder of Team Avalanche, yes, I use the past tense as he unfortunately passed away in Dubai last year. His wife and son still stay in the same house you mention.

@phamilyman, thank you and I would love to share my experiences with all here

@prabuddhadg, thanks, look forward to my time here and yes, a great day to join Team-BHP, though I didn't realise it initially!
