Sir Gogeshwar,

I beg your pardon, I am the Maharaja of ****. (Strangely TBHP does not somehow display the name of my domain.)

Anyways I am the King of **** and I did NOT give you that car.

Drat!! Sam you just let the cat out of the bag. Now everyone knows who the car actually belonged to. Sam you must learn to let go of worldly things, once given off.
Oh ****!! with no offence to the Fiefdom of **** and no pun intended!! Actually I meant ***** and not **** but I think your Fiefdom extends to there too.
***** is also closely situated to **** so we can safely presume that **** and ***** are included in Sam Maharaj's hairy territory.
Once there you must visit the Armpit mountains which have long and quaint, bushy hair like grass growing from two sides of the mountain that represent the hairy armpits.
Are they actually called the Armpits of **** or are they called the Armpits of *****? Jahapanah Samji Maharaj please clarify.

Its a tourist attraction and the board reads "Our Armpit is our Charmpit"!!
A little information about **** or *****, however you might like to adress it as.

The National dish is Candy Floss AKA Buddhi Ka Baal. (dont get your collective dirty minds in action. Its called Baal = Hair and is not a case of bad pronunciation)
Their National Singer is Bali Brahmbhatt.
National Dish Balti Chicken
They also give out an award every year called the NoBal price.
(I think lets get to the topic before im kicked.....)
Baal Baal Bach Gaye!!

Thank God this Austin Princess, whoever she is, is not expecting, otherwise reading these posts she would have had an early birth.

Default Re: Austin Princess

Just for your collective information i have recently sold the engine and gearbox to a gentleman from Hyderabad. He called me asking me if i had the engine and i replied in the affirmative. HE flew down to Bombay, we had a 15 minute conversation (out of which 14 minutes was re our cars), we had lunch and we settled for the sale. The engine was sent to him via a friend's transport agency (thanks to the guy the engine reached Hyderabad in pristine condition, in time and was delivered on the doorstep)
while i read this thread i am again reminded of Sam's wit, humour,....well just of Sam in general. Rip my friend!!

How did your friend manage that? Was it serviced along the way?

I did not know Sam personally, but his writings are indeed a legacy he left behind, much of it on t-bhp.
