Srirampur checkgate nowadays is a breeze compared to Boxirhat. Bad roads notwithstanding, that is what I use nowadays.

Stuck in udaipur due to heavy rains and flood..wanted to pudh on to Ahmedabad but all roads leading to the highway were flooded. I cannot believe I am in Rajasthan.
Finally found a hotel with a great view to spend the night

Pics: view from the room and the customary gps snapshot

That's one lovely shot of your car in the rains!

You have already driven down to Udaipur, and hardly any pics of the road! Seriously, you need to upload more!

What was the problem at Allahabad? That's newly laid and supposed to be very good!!

Yes, I think you made a right decision to take NH2.

Nice to know about your progress.

The final run to bangalore was a really fast drive on great roads and sparse traffic..reached koramangla at around 630pm
A special thanks to mr. H V Kumar for his help throughout the drive.

Dude, what a trip awesome. The car getting washed is an awesome pic. Super inspirational I must say. So how long you took from Pune to Bangalore. I heard it is a great driving road.
