I use a different route to get to office everyday.
Not much chance of seeing the same car or bike.

Habit started thanks to the novels I used to read long back.
Now I dont know why but I never know which road I will take till I am on it.

In My case its different Morning drive to home, I see the person who is the source of inspiration entering office, and then it’s a huge traffic Jam. I see an M class # 33 and a BMW # 33 washed neatly and parked for its king to travel. Then as soon as I reach home my lovely babies will be waiting near the gate to invite me.

Night while coming back to office I see the maximum of the night life, super car’s, bikes and awesome party animals out for the pubs walking on the road.

I used to see a white Porsche Cayenne passing me in the opposite direction everyday. Often he would be returning at the same time as me too, and would see him again in the evening.

And occasionally an ingenio too which try to hide themself

I use a office cab which picks me up from my home in Sector-56. We also pick another colleague from Silver Oaks, Gurgaon at 8:15 in the morning. Every alternate day or so, we come across a bright shining Red Bentley driven by an elderly gent.

The car is impeccably maintained and just invites the glances from all the locals.

I see the same cattle being herded by the same guy every single day and I have to spend at least 2 minutes for him to get them of the road every single day.

A silver Audi A4 driven by a diamond merchant, think he is one because the car is parked at Panchratna in Mumbai. Some VA 9602.
Ought to see how the car pulls up after a stop, ferocity with dignity.

When I had started commuting to my new workplace a few months ago, I used to have to pass a red cedia driven by a silver haired driver. He did put up a fight the 1st 2 days. now he just waves me by.

I see almost everyday a Blazing Red Aveo being driven by a lady. Seen her while returning home too. I guess probably it goes to Bagmane texh park.

Not recently(these days my timings are not fixed), but sometime back(when my timings were perfect, since I had to drop my daughter at school on the way)
I used to come across a scorpio(BMTC vehicle) and a matiz driven by an elderly gentleman.
