Default car-o-phile

car-o-phile is a combination of an english word CAR meaning car and a greek word PHILE meaning love. Since i have a great truly madly deeply types love for cars, so i chose this as my username.

It is NOT IN DICTIONARY, i made it up myself

Nothing special. I tried 4-5 times to register only to turn down with a message to re-register. The last time I tried with whatever name came to my mind instantly drawn from Gujarati & voila it got cleared & the username is stuck.

I have been reading your posts on Linea and others and judging by that your username perfectly suits you. You are truly a Car Pujari.

In Gujarat, Rajputs are generally called Bapu ( as in Hukkam in Rajasthan, i believe).It's more of a casual form of addressing.

However, started using it after friends somehow picked it up and started addressing me as Bapu in my motorcycle travel club - 60kph.

No, it has nothing to do with Mahatma Gandhi

I always had fascination for locomotive engines, especially Diesel engines!
WDM is a series of locomotive manufactured by Indian Railways.
So decided to use WDM as username. But I suppose 3 letter word is not allowed. At present IR is manufacturing WDM series 3 engines. So decided to append user name with 007.

Thus came up with WDM007 username

Aah!

I saw your ID and thought it was a 2007 version of some application/developer platform to do with Windows! Sounded like it!
