It was great to meet with you all, specifically it is great to meet with enthusiasts from my hometown Kolkata. @ALTIMAed: it was pleasure meeting you. We would look forward to meet you again in Kolkata or somewhere else on the road.

Cheers from

Thanks, Sam and Sambo for the photos! The weather was favourable enough to take my Maruti and both me and the car loved the drive to AHD. As always I enjoyed the excitement of the meet, especially sipping the first milk-tea after arrival, meeting up with members I know and getting intros to others. Once again thanks to Shomshree for starting the meet-thread.

I'm also deeply grateful to Hossain-da (gmhossain) (meeting in person for the first time) who tolerated several of my questions and who guided me on the road to Bandel where I was heading next for a family get-together.

Thank you Samfromindia for posting the photographs. After a lot of missed meets on my end, I made it this time. I was extremely delighted to meet so many members from Kolkata. And just as you mentioned, senior Bhpians were certainly missed.

It was a wondeful meet and I am glad to have attended it. It was a first Kolkata Team-BHP meet for me and I must thank Samba for his ever generous communications for making it a reality.

Here are few snaps from my phone camera

Hi Folks,

It was nice catching up with a lot of faces, old and new. Avoiding to take any specific names here with the risk of being unfair to anyone I might stupidly miss out. We interact quite a bit through the forum/threads/posts/PM's, seeing those faces live was awesome.

Coming to my favourite characters, the cars. It was surely great catching up with a few oldies, like the U-VA and Shuvc's Baleno, takes quite a bit of passion and stubborn determination to keep them in prim shape. The general crowd that we encounter today hardly see a point in spending or moving around in a pristine older car, infact many ridicule us for being downright "foolish".

Those Esteems, how beautifully they complement the new cars, especially the sound from the Free-flowed Esteem was fabulous.

The Momo Rims on the Vento, the overall car just speaks of pure class! Or maybe the car is to exact taste of mine. (I was so surprised with it, that I went to check the rear to see if its been de-badged!)

However, just named a few, each car was clean, maintained to the glass area. Just goes to show, that we must be doing something right in this community!

Apologies for not making it earlier, was working till late night (early morning) and then was reminded about the unwritten clean car expectation/tradition for the meets, that, probably I myself was partly involved in setting up. Had to take Marengo, because of an OTR that we were heading to from there, and the dirt on it, neither qualified as "recent Long distance/OTR earn" or "fresh smear on a car that started clean from the garage". A lot of people might curse an imaginary someone having to wash-out their vehicles, particularly in this season when its sure to get mucked soon, the collective Karma surely found its proper destination!

Thanks for confirming that you don't consider Me/Shuvc as senior enough, despite the uncontrollably increasing silver streaks and family pack abs. Quite a heartening sign!!

Well that's the reason i said some and not all One of the main attractions of meet for amateurs like me is to meet celebrity Bhpians like you. It was a real treat to drive alongside the Baleno which prompted me to break away from the otherwise boring convoy and pedal to the metal

Sadly there was the OTR to go to, otherwise the Baleno sure would have had its share of entertainment!

However, team bhp does not support street racing!! However, I am not sure if driving behind the fastest car counts as one!!

It was a first Kolkata TBHP meet for me and it was wonderful. It was a pleasure to meet such wonderful people. Felt nice to meet some beautiful writer and photographer, personally. Also saw some spirited driving, while coming back. My car was around 100, when a convoy of Etios, Figo, Swift simply zoomed passed me and vanished within few seconds, in a relatively straight highway :-). BTW, loved the look of the Swift.

Was indeed a great meet, and was a pleasure to meet so many old and new faces.
The drive and food was as superb as always combined with intermittent rain on the return drive was a treat.

Is there a Team BHP East/Kolkata Whatsapp group that I can be a part of? Don't want to miss out on future gatherings.
