Default Kolkata: Impromptu Team-BHP Meets

We BHPians keep on meeting each other - some times in a planned way and some times in a not so planned / informed way.

So i thought of starting a new thread on Impromptu Meets in Kolkata. Please feel free to post pictures / reports on how were the meets as and when held.

Well it happened today in morning when 4 BHPians decided to meet for a smallish drive, which turned in to an awesome morning drive + breakfast.

sharing few pictures of today's meet - Pic Credits 1100D and low resolution pics from my phone

Set from 1100D's Camera:

The Lovely Honda City VTEC - Belongs to me after shuvd // the lovely 1100d

The group photo was shot on the flyover / in front of the building where the Renault Duster Advertisement was shot

Matching chappals - It was always my idea. Joseph / Nos Power simply crashed the party

Set from my phone camera:

After the drive, we headed out for a chai-break and found a CCD in Sector V - all time favourite - Chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce

Met shuvc later in the day. Today was Shuvc's birthday and he was very generous to give me a treat again - after that heavy breakfast, i stuffed in as much as i could

Don't for not informing you because this meet was not planned.

Meeting people / members of a Forum full of like minded people is fun - even if they are not planned

Sharing some of the meet pictures which never made it to a dedicated thread on Team BHP

Good to see meets in Kolkata as well. I have spotted quite a few cars with TBhp stickers, especially around park circus and park street areas. Will follow you guys for updates to see when I can join you in an upcoming Kolkata meet.

Scene 1: Early Morning - 6.00 AM - I was feeling very hungry, but me being a lazy human being, was not in the mood to go out and eat some thing (everyone asleep at home)

Scene 2: sent a whatsapp message to couple of BHPians as to whether they are hungry and wanted to go out and have some thing!

Scene 3: was out of the house by 7.00 AM and this happened - 7 hungry BHPians met up at Flury's, Park Street

It was a nice meet. Precisely because it allowed each participant to take back something according to individual preferences.

Here are the pictures

Thanks guys. Last few meets, the focus is really on proper car-talk, rather than just a focus on sophisticated bragging of latest acquisitions from the present premium lineup available on our shores!

Lets plan up. It has been ages, since the group met. I won't be able to make it tomorrow.

But, as the thread title mentions that this is an impromptu meet thread - i will try to keep the air clean because we had a mini meet today.

Members: Shuvc, Shuvd, XetaGLGRocks and me.

I was at work in the morning, when i received a text from Shuvd that he needs to drive to Sector V for some work and he wanted me to come along with him. I left office after 2 PM and met up with shuvd and we went to sector v, where a surprise was waiting for me - a Mini Meet

Met up with the gang and we went for lunch at "OMG" (what kind of a name is that for a restaurant?)

I will let the pictures do the talking:
