Have been out of Pune since morning today driving over 300 kms. Just back home & would not venture out again. So I need to add my name to the last minute "Kalti" list.

Have fun everyone.

Left Andheri at 2:10 pm, reached Pune at at 7:30 pm. Was stuck in that jam created by the container. Also saw an Alto on its side and an Innova on its roof with 3 missing wheels. Drive safe guys.

Now waiting for Amey and Vikram18 to take me back to Sunny's.

See you soon.

Whew! A post in T-BHP after what sounds like Ages!

I had to take my daughter to her school this morning. And then was stuck in a heavy downpour in Ghatkopar when I went to replace one of the tubes (which incidentally has 8 punctures). Came back home dripping wet around 12:30 pm.

And when @Bolbolero called me, I had to tell him that I'd not be joining (came home dripping wet 3 days in a row).

Then was thinking. Go - no go. go - no go? Finally, around 1:30 pm the lure of heavy rains and long drive won over my lethargy.

Packed up things quickly and made a dash to Pune. On the way back from Pune I dropped by to say hello to all.

I feel a bit dejected that I had to leave early (my daughter felt claustrophobic in the car without me driving and started crying towards the fag end).

But overall, it was a pleasure to meet all you guys. Especially, @GTO and @Allan (two new people I met in this meet)

And Thanks a ton @Rehaan for the sticker.

And @Dhaval was missed again. So was @Hvkumar.

And my daughter loved the lovely weather throughout the drive.

This was what the drive was like all the way till I crossed the second toll on e-way. Perfect way to start the monsoon season drives!

I had the most wonderful time. What a turnout! Sunny's was overflowing with T-Bhpians inside and out, checking out one another's engine mods & ICE and talking animatedly about all things automotive and non!

Took some pics, which I'm taking the liberty of sharing-

The West Pune gang assembled on schedule:

This is the parking lot when we'd just arrived- it soon filled up!

For me, the ride of the meet: The Saint's modded '07 Civic AT. What a beast.

(dot and I promised ourselves we would buy one each...someday!)

Always amazed at the eye for detail that T-Bhpians possess: 2 people (Monaro and Rehaan) pointed out that I was wearing the same shirt as in my avatar .

It was great catching up with fellow BHPians and I do hope we do this more regularly!

Great meet and it was wonderful to meet up with all of you.

On a sober note, some of the Bombay guys had reported an Innova lying turtle on the eway. Just got to know this morning that one of the dead was Dr. Phatak; the principal/ director of Millenium school in kothrud Pune.

Great meet. Though had to leave a bit early. Thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone and putting faces to names.

Yup this was sad. As my son is in Millenium School got an SMS as soon as i reached home and that sure was sad news after having such a wonderful time at the meet. Dr.Phatak and Mrs.Phatak both passed away in the accident. RIP.

Quite a turnout it was considering there were heavy rains in Bombay and almost all the roads were grid locked in traffic. I took five and half hours to get from Bombay to Pune and then left for the meet. Needless to say it was worth it!

It was great to meet all of you.

I had seen it just about 15-20 minutes after it happened. The Innova hit a curb in the road divider and flew three lanes across on the shoulder upside down. It was missing a few wheels too. Horrific crash.

Yes SuperSelect, that indeed was an awesome meet. Band of boys is the apt term; its truly lovely to fee like a boy once again. Was lovely meeting up with you after a long lapse.

BolBolero now has an alias - BoleroDa. Thanks a million for the ride in your beast. It was lovely viewing the e-way as a passenger; and the view from Amrutanjan bridge was just lovely. Meeting up once again with Khoj the generous was lovely too. T'was nice meeting up Genesis.

At Sunny's there were so many new and enthusiastic faces; all of them bright and smiling and in full mirth. That was truly a lovely time I have had. AP was there to greet us as we slid into the Sunny parking area. Soon enough the rest of the gang began flowing into the Dhaba. Rehaan, Issigonis, SuperSelect, AnilisAnil, it was nice to see you guys once again. Met with No-Enthu-Da and found he lives close by, and has lots of enthusiasm. Then there were so many new faces and new handles to challenge one's memory bank. Hope to meet up guys in following meets.

Rehaan thanks for the T-BHP Sticker.

Drive Safe.
