This was one of the best meets that I have attended. Thanks to each and every member for the contribution & for making it such a success. Loved every bit of it.

Thanks Blackpearl for forcing me into playing Cricket after a decade. The performance by me_sid (Sunny Da)'s son was outstanding. Hats off to Xeta (Saby Da) for playing non stop guitar for around 3 hours. I could not click to many pictures. Here are some from my phone.

What a joy every time we meet. Thank you everyone for taking the initiative and giving lazy people like us an opportunity to meet, greet and romance about cars.

My wife loves cars, but this was the first time I bundled her with me to the meet he heroes whose travelogues and automotive acts makes our evening coffee even more enjoyable (although this meet was missing some of those prominent ones).

Off-roading for me exists in Youtube and long drives in Google maps. But meeting all of you makes the dormant traveler and car love in me realize that still there’s hope and time.

Ahh! the pictures of the bonfire. The audio recording of the guitar being shared over WhatsApp and the thought of missing spending a lovely evening and almost 24 hours with team "Love Cars. Live Cars" was a real tormentor yesterday night.

Missed the Gadiara stay due to a family commitment but it was indeed a lifetime loss. Let’s see if we can make it up soon with another family meet with an excellent overnight stay.

I do have a few pictures as the convoy proceeded from Haldirams to AHD. Here they are.

But the real question is “WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE?”

Realized that there were a few more fun-shots that I missed out to post last time.

One of my favorite is shooting the camera being mounted on the selfie stick and the kid on the Thar enjoying his morning milk bottle on the Thar's solid winch tray.

Here they go.

Awesome pics, as usual !

Makes me kind of jealous and sad at the same time that I missed this trip...would have been my 'First' T-BHP meet.

Hats off to the wonderful guys who made this meet a reality.

To repeat an old question - “WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE ??"

Got to attend the meet, but only for the first segment of it. Had to return back from AHD. Sadly These meets always get planned when i am about to travel outside Kolkata.

Great catching up with the BHPians for the short time. Shame I missed the overnight affair. Hopefully the next time.

Awesome photos guys.

This was my second Team-BHP meet and it was an over nighter. How Lucky I am

Don't have words to express but it was truly awesome. We cannot be thankful enough to Samba, shomshree, PapaBravo, AJ-got-BHP and imove for there excellent planning, arrangements, T-Shirt, Watch and Food. Did I Miss Something !!!!

The Place was beautiful and the view of river is refreshing from the property.
The Stay was excellent and there was nothing to complain about service.

I would also like to share some pictures I have taken. (Please forgive me for the quality of Pics as they are from my Phone. I forgot to take my Camera . )

It was a lovely meet. Many thanks to Mr. C. Murugan (MD, WBTDC) for offering us such a lovely place for this meet. We are deeply touched by his interest and efforts for the improvement of tourism in West Bengal. Special thanks to BHPians Samba, shomshree, PapaBravo, AJ-got-BHP and imove for making this happen. I am also very thankful to all the BHPians and their wonderful families, especially the super cute little ones, for taking part in the even with such a zest and making it such an unforgettable experience. Thank you everyone.

Here are some of the very few pics that I bothered clicking (I prefer to delegate this job to others because of my horrible skills at it).

A short ride on a rickshaw van to the nearby Ganga Ashram

A young boy was making handicrafts from palm leaves and selling them right outside the WBTDC resort. We got one of them home.

I hope to see many such meets taking place in the future as well.

Wonderful photographs guys. Really missed a big get together. But I am more than glad to meet you guys at AHD.

Here is how the event unfolded. My prior plans to Mandarmoni gave me feeling that I won't even make it to the day meet at AHD. So I proceeded with my actual plan. Pick up my collegues and halt at AHD and after breakfast, move on till Mondarmoni. I was actually the first member to reach AHD :P.
The moment I went inside, saw a group message pop-up. It was from Sumitro, BlackPearl "Reached AHD". I was like... WHAT? WHERE? WOW! Soon after, saw two more cars zipping in through the gate. And the cars just kept coming. I rushed out, to meet and greet. It was an amazing mix of excitement and happiness.
I was so much elated to meet you guys. Just wished that I could join you all in Gadiara. Hopefully there will be similar meets in the days to come. My son Ashmit was so excited to see all the cars shining in the morning sun. Especially the THAR. He just couldn't resist sitting on the it. Thanks to BlackPearl for granting his wish.

My first Team-bhp meet and it's a block buster
Now I feel what I had missed when every time a Team-bhp meet was organised and I was unable to attend.
We are really thankful to Mr. Murugan, MD, WBTDC for helping us organize an overnight meet at Rupnarayan Tourist Lodge, Gadiara and providing us 5 star service. Sir, your presence would have been the icing on the cake. We enjoyed our stay and loved the service provided by the staff. We promise to join hands with you and help in improving West Bengal Tourism in whatever way we can.
I would also like to thank the organizers and all the participants of the meet who together made the meet a GRAND MEET.
"It was the best team-bhp meet ever"

Special mention should be made of Siddartha da's son who stole the show with n number of songs along with Sabyasachi da, Anirban KIL, Siddartha da, Pinaki da and Sudeshna (my wife). They made the evening melodious with their beautiful voices.

Not to forget the 3 cricket matches we played with Blackpearl pushing his team mates hard to atleast win one match against us.

Few pictures of the GRAND MEET:

Ahh, what fun... the pictures speak for themselves!

Though i too was part of the overnight meet, had to pull out at the last moment due to sudden work commitments. Couldn't even make it to AHD as had a morning flight to catch.

Anyways, its great to see such camaraderie and bonding amongst Kolkata BHPians and i eagerly look forward to the next meet..! Hope it happens soon.

@Samba: Will connect with you offline & collect my t-shirt.
