Default Anyone can make out!

Ever since my childhood, I always used to hear stories of Amby and Fiat (read Premier Padmini) from my father and his friends.

Somehow the love for Fiat's in the due course increased to such an extent that I bought one (Palio) even when all my friends, relatives and family was dead against it. (Becuase FIAT had kind off wrapped up itself from India at that time.)

Now they all are so happy with the decision which I took three years back that they dont want to think any other vehcile apart from FIAT!!

I learned driving on FIAT and have lot of great memories with this car and sure enough I am "Obsessed By Fiat"!!

acidkill

1. My call name in counterstrike for the last 7-8 years
2. I love hand break turns.. and since burnt tires have a sulfuric smell (H2SO4) therefore the name - acidkill

UNO-CZAR

UNO = number one (espanyol)

CZAR = A king (russian i believe)

Well, i dont consider myself as #1king.. but these were names of my pet dog and bitch i had looong time ago. They were taken away from me. So, as the saying goes... "unki yaad mein" All my web ID's have the same unique thing.

"UNOCZAR"

tantragna -> indianised word for technician/technologist.

I am known by my folks to be a freak in technology while fixing their stuff they considered junk or calling me every time to help fix them, so it is a common id everywhere with me!

My first email ID was smartcat007 at hotmail.com.
'smartcat' was my name when I first played Quake 3 Arena.
That name stuck on for online forums too.
