OK, I'll do the needful.

In simple words Pavan, but in English, and not the vernacular (because that is not permissible on the forum), what the last two posts are talking about is this: An SUV, to some of us, looks best when covered fully with the colours of the earth. Others consider it 'bad'. Each is entitled to an opinion. No dispute there.
This, in case it is not yet clear, transcends all boundaries of car make and model.
That pic of the Safari, wearing the colours of the earth, appeals to me hugely!

I don't much care for pics with tell-tale puddles beneath each tyre!

For all Safari Lovers,

There's something that i found today.

LED lights.

Advantages..
1) Long life
2) Negligible Heat generated
3) Not Pricey
4) Great Illumination inside the cabin

Srini,

This is available at PIT STOP opposite Lifestyle.

Priced at Rs.290/- a piece, Found it so neat i was instantly tempted today and changed all 3 cabin lights on my safari.

And it fits all cars, no cutting or chopping of wires, Its got neat connectors for different sizes , Its a DIY fitment.

And to add to it, it emits White light with negligible heat, not the usual yellow light with so much heat generated normally.

Kuldiha Wildlife Sanctuary, Balasore, Orissa



Thanks guys this VTT-TMT has gone through quite a lot these 7 months and will be put through more demanding paces in time to come.

So here are some more pictures, just for the heck of it. Two pictures that I would miss would be

1. When in the jungles of Kuldiha, Orissa, crossing a ditch, at a very severe angle, the opposite tyres lifted for a good second or two, had that helpless feeling of tumbling.

2. When it crossed a flash flood stream and then water vapour smoke coming up from the radiator - this in Satkosia, Orissa. Being cut off from electricity for 3 days, the camera batteries drained off.

Don't exert yourself matecheers:


Suman sir,

My intentions were purely pun , just wanted to add some fun element on this thread.

Never exerted myself.

I sleep/eat/drink/live and drive a Safari Anthem any given point of time,

I'll never comment anyone in such cases, please dont get me wrong on this one.

And ADC,

What amazing trip you've had, that youtube link is mind blowing...

Nothing to beat such look.
