Chalo... at least one worrisome chapter finally looks like its closing. Tan, get a nimbu-mirchi dangler for your car, or maybe better still a half torn, old, dusty leather shoe to ward off the evil eyes.

Catch you soon in your soon-to-start Travelogue thread buddy.

Tanveer just go on, the Safari is now up after recuperation.

It will just rock and go miles without any problem and put the detailed report once you are finished with the travel.

Default Nightmare personified

I don't know where to start, and where to end. Well after 18 hours on the road, I can't even thinK straight.
So I will pause, rest and then post the gory details.
However I can proudly claim to be the only tata safari owner who has seen a breakdown at 3500mts above sea level, where mobile signal is absent, and the most advanced tool available is a screwdriver

@TSK, bulls eye yet again ? Awaiting the painful gory details ..

Btw, is there anything like a SUG ? A Safari User's group ? Is this the only 4x4 Safari that's giving problems like this ? And being Tanveer's Safari, the visibility is so much more on TBHP.

We had discussed so much before the Safari got the thumbs up, but now it's a thumbs-up of a different kind.
