Default Greeting all Team-BHPians

Special thanks to the moderators, who put in a lot of hard work to maintain this site and they make an excellent job of it. Thanks also for accepting me as a member. I feel really proud to belong to such a marvelous group of car enthusiasts.

I am Anil, was born in Bombay some 58 years ago, and now live in Mumbai. I work for a government research institute and trained as an electronics engineer. It's another matter that I have forgotten nearly all of electronics by now. Had a Yezdi in my youth and am proud to say that I maintained the bike all by myself. Can't say I am a great car enthusiast but I finally got myself the modest Alto a few months ago and lovingly call her as ‘Bebo’. My user name is a simple unassuming fold up of the Alto’s slogan ‘let’s go’. Had assumed I would not make a good driver, but did manage to get onto the Mumbai-Pune freeway up to Khandala just yesterday (Sunday 26 July). It's lovely out there right now, so posting a few pictures in this introduction (hope I am not breaking any rule).

Ciao

Nice to know you!

last, but not the least, you have a great name !

bye

Dear Srinivas,

Omigosh! did not expect such a quick and such an encouraging response. Thanks for saying such nice things. Thanks for appreciating the photographs. I have yet to hone my photography skills, its just that Khandala is indeed so enchanting at this time of the year. No small wonder that Aamir Khan asks "Aati kya Khandala?"
Yes, shall soon try to post some pictures of the car too.
take care
Anil.

Welcome gostel. First car in the Alto? New to highways? The expressway must have been quite an experience. Plenty of driving tips on the forum. Do spend some time search n' reading.

We'd also appreciate your taking a quick pitstop by our board rules section just once, for familiarisation. See ya around the forums!
