Default Congrats to Ram the new D-Bhpian.

Congratulations Ram. I knew this would happen, well its never too late.
Those of us who know Ram (which Bhp-ain doesn't) personally, know him to be a gentleman of enviable knowledge, whether it be about cars and how they work or mobile phones ...and their working or generally about any topic.
I came across him on the forum in the guess the car thread and soon realised that his informative posts were not the handiwork of any solely google aided person.
This was knowledge first hand, first class and coming from within, with a passion. We exchanged PMs and I contacted him many a times regarding any issue I was having a doubt with. I always got the right answer, impeccably explained with the aide of impressively charted and marked pictures much as his trade mark posts. I just had to meet him.
From that point onwards if i saw any thread with the last post by Ram I always went through the thread and his posts.
I chanced to meet him one day at my restaurant for a cup of tea in the presence of a few other Bhp-ians and was more impressed with his volumetric knowledge. This was a man who definately knew what he was talking about.
I congratulate Ram for his being initiated into the Distinguished Bhp-ian club.
I dont know what they do out there but I know that Ram deserved to be there. For his no nonsense posts, his knowledge re cars and his willingness to share with others what he knows.
Kudos Mod team and all those who were responsible.
One more deserving person joins the rank.
Keep it up Ram. May your tribe grow
