Sam Bhai ! Hmm You are what You are and we all love and like you for that. I haven't met you personally but will definitely one day. I can infer that you are one soul who keeps all of us smiling and you have this magical and free spirited writing which is something we all will love forever.

First time I met Sam, he gave me a very terrified look, took a few seconds to break into his trademark smile.

The first time I actually met him, I was looking in the other direction.
Samurai came up from behind and held my neck in some kind of Kung-Fu vice. lol

It wasn't easy, I had to make 2-3 passes in front of the JBL stall waiting for him to look the other way, and then I had to go over the barrier to achieve that element of surprise.

sam, hope you ahd a great day yesterday, but i am now waiting for your bigggg treasure hunt story. so pls finish the mtnl one soon so that this can start.

on second thoughts, we should have a sub section in shifting gears for ur stories/travelouges. it will surely make a good read.

just my two cents.
