Default Bonjour!

How come I have ever failed to give you the most important post after joining t-bhp in 2 years?

Anyway, allow me to introduce myself.

I am Siddharth Shankar, 24, MBA student from IIPM, Delhi and an automobile freak since the age of 13.

I am a hardcore Delhite (was born here in 22 January 1985 and living here since), even though my family belongs to the south.

Love to collect and store brochures, read the reviews (and now learning to write them too!), in addition I have great interest in commercial aviation safety and studying about air crashes.

As per the cars/ bikes we have owned, it includes:
  1. Royal enfield 350 (purchased by my Father in 1976, sold in 1994),
  2. Premier padmini DX BU 4-speed floor shift (nissan box)-purchased in 1993 and sold in 2000 after covering 1,72,000 km.
  3. Daewoo Matiz SP, excel grey, purchased in January 2000 (our first "modern" car), sold in June 2006 after covering 1,84,000 kms.
  4. Hyundai Santro XO, purchased in mid 2006 (our present car), covered 62,500 kms and still going strong, I am driving this.
  5. Honda City,white purchased in late 2008, currently being driven by my parents and my cousin brother.Covered 11,300 kms.
  6. The santro will be replaced by the grande punto in 2010, as per my plan.

Finally an introduction from the "scoop" master. Do we say welcome here, now ? Been going through your posts for quite sometime now and must say you manage some of the best automotive scoops, how so you do it, any hints? See you around at some new beat .

Yes shouldn't have introduced this early because we were enjoying all your scoops in a way that some mysterious person is doing it and there was lot of mystery in it.
Any way its great know about you.
