Hi Guys,

Am back!! Unfortunately BAD News all around.

My car broke down just after i left Bangalore. Engine Oil was leaking from the side and falling onto the Fan Belt assembly and caused the fan belt to slip. It just came off after i left electronic city and the journey literally ended there. Had to drive back home (around 20km) with no power steering and the engine heating up every 2 kms. Stopped for the engine to cool down and reached back home after 2 hours. Called up mechanic immediately and now the problem has been rectified. Managed to go to cochin and come back my bus.

Cheers
Sanju
