Default Thank you.

You guys are really incredible. I've never been forced to write faster before but this time you really pushed me hard.
As always, I write straight into the Team-BHP text editor. I do not write, read, edit and paste. I believe it takes away the essence of a YetiBlog®.

This one was slightly different from the others. I think that apart from being one of the fastest YetiBlogs ever written, this one was in the thick of the readers who were willing the story on. I really, really enjoyed it.

Thank you. I also know that there are some of you who are reading and holding their comments till the story is over. The story is over, your comments are now welcome.

And for those of you that think I should write a book someday, I smile, nod and send you my love. Thank you for the encouragement. Maybe I will write a book someday. Who knows, you may the only guys who actually buy my book, lol.

Till then, thanks for sharing my story (5000+ views in 2 days!) and see you on the next YetiBlog®!

Love,
Sam

Wow, Awesome ending to the story. Well your dad is correct by saying "Arrey India pahunchne to de! Ek baar ghar aa gaye toh kaun paise nikaalega!" .

So did you went to berlin and continued your holiday plans.

That was a tame but happy ending to the story, Sam. In a way, sad that it came to an end so quickly. Only one question, what happened with the gentle lady? Hmmm.. Alternate endings, any one?

awesome writing sam. What happened to insurance. Did those guys contact you in india ie., if you had given the correct address Even the passport addressess are obsolete in many cases.
What happened to the lady? Hope her boyfriend did not leave her for helping you out?
Many questions are unanswered.

We did give our correct address, it was the same as the passport. Nobody ever contacted us again.

I welcome alternate endings and imaginations. If anyone wants to hone, practice or show-off their story telling skills, I welcome it.

I have one happy ending.

I was so angry with the Germans for making us go through all that nonsense that one day, amny years later I stole one of their best women and took her away to India.

To summarize in one word - Awesome.

Probably the best I have read at TBHP so far. I would login every 30 minutes for the latest. Good to see that it was a simple and Happy end. Like others I would also like to know who finally paid up Alfa.

Sam don't you worry on the book, can arrange representations with major publishers and leverage two bookstores in the city you live

Write, and we take it to New York and London, (conditions apply).

Great writing. thanks once again.

I would say Sam " The pleasure is still ours."
No one i repeat no one (i hope my Girl friend is not reading this.. chal theek hain one more person.) keeps me captivated and concentrating on one thing for so long.

we did push you a bit too hard than ever but come on we have to move on with life and that can't happen till the YetiBlog® is over.
