Buddy, not just on OMR, but i was informed that all Shell bunks were out of petrol. Tried consecutively for 2 days at the Whitefield outlet for my bike. Finally, proceeded to Club HP at Brookfields and filled in petrol for Rs.50/-.

OFF-TOPIC:
Lohith, thats really true. Somehow, the car now sees the light of day only on weekends, while the bike takes care of all daily commuting, and short trips to pick up essential supplies. Feel a lot more relaxed on it. No more creased brows, no tensions when someone gets too close for comfort, and also more distance for a litre, as compared to the car. With the weather Gods also being kind to us now in Bangalore, riding the bike is a pleasant experience.

Even my relatives tease me saying the same thing, as in, "You plan on taking the car out only on bandh days, is it?!".

Yesterday, there was no petrol at the bunk at vittal mallya road. So i filled up from IOC opp skoda on st. marks road. Shell's loss is some other pumps gain.

Fortunately I had not made a special out of the way trip to tank up on shell.

Cheers
Ajay
