Gr8 topic Haryan...the story behind my nick is...

I used to play in corporate cricket tournments in hyderabad. Met a few good people and we decided to start our own club, 11 of us sat down in a dhaba and guzzled 100 beers trying to get an name for the club, end of the session we had the name "Guzzlers". True to our name, we used to enjoy every sunday with a nice game of cricket followed by lots of beers (Gosh! those were the good days!!!)

Anyway, my nick is just an extension of being an important member of the club.

Cheers!!!

Mine is straight from the horoscope. "sadesaath" means "seven and a half" in hindi. The shani dasha which lasts seven & a half year supposedly a very bad phase in life (when the planet saturn supposedly would be negatively influencing once life). I was amused when i was told to expect bad events coming up....but nothing as such in real life experience.

HARYAN ..... interesting thread friend.

Nice thread Haryan.

Well, I just have some weird fixation with the letter 'X'. Have a chain with a 2" silver X. Also have a t-shirt which has X on the front etc etc.
And Machine, Well....
So X-Machine.
