Though born and brought up in Bangalore, I'm now an adopted Mysorean.
The next time I'm in Bangalore or you visit Mysore, let's catch up. I'll pm you well in advance.

Secunderabad traffic jams have lately been proving to my advantage - in spotting old fiats that is!
Here's yet one more I saw, today- and a familiar one at that!

Beats me too!

Chakravarthy should have a hawk eye to spot these beauties in Mysore. Though i visit Mysore quite often, i dont bump into these.
Meeting Chakravarthy too is long due, hope to see him soon and go on a road hunt.

Mentioning about Behram sir, was fortunate to have met and dined with him, memories that will cherished for long long years to come.
