Default Road to Team-BHP: Incognito

Cars fascinated me since I was 4. Fascination turned into chaos and anarchy, as I took to the Kolkata roads some 22 years later in my new Alto LXI. And in all those years, what I gathered about cars is that, there's an accelarator which accelerates, a brake which you must use when honking doesn't work and a steering wheel which feels incredibly smooth when you are high on Vodka.

The next 1.5 yrs was all about driving and spending quality time with BlackPear (fellow BHPian with a need for speed), which has brought me here. But do not get me wrong friends, I am pretty fast on Kolkata roads. (On my day I can take on bicycles, trams and the odd Maruti 800 with an L tag hanging from the rear) and yes very very safe. (Only once I hit this lamp post speeding towards me from the other side.)

As a family we also own a Ford Ikon Flair. Dad Almighty gets to drive it most of the time. He believes in the golden proncipal, "You should never lend your car to someone, you have given birth to". So by now you must have figured out that I love to write more than I love to drive.

Oh yes, the boring part, in my spare time do a bit of coding, a lot of decoding and some unputdownable stuff for an IT company. (Previously this company used to manufacture Business Machines, Internationally)

welcome incognito! very nice introduction. so you drive very slow and safe right. and you are a friend of BlackPearl (Polished Dome) and vrooooooom?? (Pushpak??) interesting - i thought i was the slowest of the Kolkata gang. looks like i have a competitor. -

once i found my Ex-GF (well now my wifey) smiling at me with pride while i was negotiating a very good turn at rajarhat. (why i was negotiating the good turn: my car spun out of control) - (why my ex-GF was smiling with pride: she thought i was drifting )

i hope to see you soon. do go through the rules of posting and check out the team BHP Meet Section under Shifting Gears.

Thanks Mate, that makes my day.

But this is the point from where it gets tough, with all the technicalities about automobiles coming into equation.

too bad that the best re-union wwas couple of years back. our school's re-union is more Fashion conscious now (fashion shows, celebrity guests and all) - they even stopped serving booz.

feels good that Team BHP brought us together.
