"... And then one day you find,
Ten years have gone behind you,
No one told you when to run,
You missed the starting gun"... Pink Floyd, "Time"

Says it all, does it not!! Forty-six is a young age when you are 53 and looking back... glad you have not missed the starting gun!!

It will be a pleasure to meet with you - either when I next come to Delhi or when you make a trip to Mumbai. My cell is 98210 80000... Girish Rangan (aka Varaman)

Hey Big Bro, thanks man, for such a warm gesture.... and those lines from 'Time'? timeless masterpiece.. and so apt, got me thinking bigtime, maybe I did miss that starting gun. ('The Dark Side of the Moon' was one of Floyd's best, isn't it?) But what the hell, you're never too old to rock and roll if you're too young to die, thus spake Ian Anderson (I'm a big time Jethro Tull fan)

Hey, do you come to Delhi often? be delighted to meet you, but be warned, you're a hotshot corporate head honcho, and me? I'm just a poor boy and my story's seldom told! (thus went Art Garfunkel (Boxer)).. this is Ashish Gour at your service, sir! (9868240182).

Amazing - I love Pink Floyd, Tull, S&G (some songs more than others), Men at Work, Don McLean, David Bowie...
Don't come to Delhi much - last time I passed through on the way to Sikkim. Corporate hotshot ke din toh beet gaye; ab toh "gentleman of leisure" (read "unemployed" hain hum!. Noted your number Ashish - will surely stay in touch

Hey, we listen to the same music, man! (Living in the Past, may I say?) bet you must be listening to Dylan, The Who etc as well!
I've been to Bombay but once, about 22 yrs ago when I was a strapping young Lieutenant in the Artillery! I do visit Poona every couple of yrs being in DRDO now (safely tucked behind a desk!) next time I'm there I'll hop over to shake your hand.
Hey bro, I have the entire collection of Tull right from This Was to J Tull dot com, if you don't have it just pm me your postal address and I'll burn a copy and send the DVD across.....
Gentleman of leisure..... ha ha ha,..... sounds so Victorian!
Noted the time of your last post .... burning the midnight oil, eh?

Thanks! But I have all of Tull too Yup, Dylan is on my 'listen often' list... but I find he sounds whiny after about 6 to 8 numbers! Late post last night was due to a late night movie... returned home and checked my mail etc. Are you on Facebook? I am listed as girishrangan.

Bro, the link you have sent does not lead to the Yezdi thread, but back to the forum page. And yes, it has the Rotax engine... torquey, fast... but very jerky for city driving being a single cylinder.

The copy paste worked. Excellent reading! My good friend LS Narayanswami (aka Ravi) owns a Honda Blackbird and a RD350 in good nick. If you are interested in buying the RD350, I can ask him if he wants to pop it off or keep it.
