Thanks to all your logs, which are helping the members of the forum. True, knowledge is not built easily!

Fortunately there was no need but I was surprised for him to provide his telephone number with instructions that I should call incase I had any problems on the road. Hats of to you!!

Somebody, who hardly knows the person and still provides the information requested without any bias or rewards deserves all the accolades.

Well deserved sir. Keep it up!!
Thanks a great deal, sir - Pritam hospitality was fantastic - I have always been a fan of the dhaba anyway all these years! And I did not know earlier till I came to the Meet you were the Sardar who owned it! No offence, V-16,

I actually knew about kumar through the matiz groups. He had clocked something like 2 lakh kms on his matiz !!?! Am i right kumar? that by itself was an amazing feat I felt.

Keeping logs is amazing. Probably you should publish them. Kumar's Guide to Indian Highways !!!

Great show.
