hi guys.....gto, dippy, rehaan, rtech, v12, revv....an' all others. i've been missin out on all the action for quite a while.

month of april, i was back home in the south for my hols. had a real fatal accident in my city. theres a 100-odd acre campus with dense greenery all around and narrow, but beautifully surfaced tarmac. it's a mini-jungle kinda thingy with an artificial lake thrown in. and no thoroughfare. was takin a fast sweeper at around 120, when two cycle-wallas came up from nowhere onto the middle of the road. no other option, but to swerve to avoid hittin the ........ the left side was an 8-10 feet drop, which is how i went. and like they say, ur whole life flashes past u.....very true. god's grace, escaped with a broken arm and lotsa cuts an' wounds, but no major damage. have a back problem though, and the doc says it will take a while to be awright. the car's a total write-off anyways.

now back in delhi, gettin on with mah classes....back to routine. really nice to see that the forum has lotsa new members. and nice stickerwork rudra sen. good going. really enjoy bein back in da hood. take care. god bless.

WB Manti!

Sorry about the accident, but glad to hear you OK and so are the cyclists to avoided. A car can be repaired...so you made the correct choice about swerving outa their way.

Look forward to your single handed typing now
