Stresses the importance of forests in our life.

A close translation wouldbe :
If forests are gone, our land is doomed.
And if land is doomed, the people are doomed.

When we heard from Wildcard that he infact did have a pair of Pugs ( champion male/female! ) and 5 puppies we all literally ran outside his house to check the dogs. I remember his mother-in-law coming behind us to serve the tea when we ran off ignoring her!!!

I think this would be the only tbhp meet where all 5 cars got washed in the morn before the start of the second round.

On the way downhill to aanamalai (pollachi) we saw a Pajero driving uphill and teh co-driver holding the grab rail as if he was scared to death when he saw the hair pin turns. Some how saw him closely said he was some film actor.

You know, I really dont drink. But if you insist I'll have some whiskey with Gatorade....



His dad did the drinking, but Duboy's the one who got high:



Zakkie calms Quicksilver down as Steeroid instigates him to go for the nuts in this tribal morning wake-up custom. The person under the blanket is unknown, but will not remain unheard for long:



The man who got the boot was Zakkie's good friend Taha and so Sriram (Quicksilver) has been banished:



If only you'd listened to my advice and bought a smaller vehicle you wouldnt have so much trouble cleaning, says Zakkie to Steeroid as he cleans up the car before he leaves following Zakkie's henious act of banishing Quicksilver.



Are you sure you want to leave without me? I'm gonna use my Kryptonian powers and lift the rear wheels of that stupid SUV off the road if you do...



Duboy actually carried out his threat and everyone had to leave the car and hoof it. JK was so scared by Duboy's antics he had to take a leak...I wonder which unlucky soul gets to drink THAT lot of tea!



Meanwhile, the fleeing Quicksilver's car was caught at the next tea factory where he was found while (what else?) cleaning his car!



Zakkie gave chase to extract revenge for the morning's cruel crime, and Quicksilver was last seen jumping off THIS:



Unable to bear the sight of his father's cruel behaviour, Zakkie's son takes out his frustration on the car:



The cops were called in and once he saw THIS, Zakkie was sure that he'd be followed WHEREVER HE GOES:



Meanwhile Quicksilver had floated down the river to a reservoir near Pollachi where he rescued and revived by another TBHP member WildCard, who happens to be a doctor.



Quicksilver recounting his tale of woe to Dr Madhavan (WildCard) while Steeroid consoles him:



and Zakkie's elder son breaks into an Eminem jig when he hears that his dad was the Real Slim Shady



Despite the distracting entertainment, Zakkie is found guilty by the cops. After goodbyes to the family, the man is sent to do his time:





while the rest of the gang meet up to discuss his fate and finish the liquor

zak; you back from exile?

do you know that quicksilver is mistaken for someone else or not even recognized coz he sports a devdas beard these days! We I met him last week ak Kovai, we overheard a friend of his asking another guy if that indeed was quicksilver.

Sorry to be replying a little too late. My laptop crashed... guess it was the voltage fluctuation in Kerala.

The little time spent with you guys was well worth it. It was great meeting you guys. Looks like I missed a whole lot of fun. But I am glad I returned early. There was serious stuff to take care of.

Lets do a repeat soon. Shall try and arrange for the High Range Club at Munnar.

Ciao.

Oh, Joz. Atleast now we heard from you.
You owe us for letting you go midway. Let it be Munnar. We're ready sir.

By the way, if anybody has any pictures on stock, please post soon. This thread has done it's job I think.

The Rumble, way before the jungle.


We thought WIPER might come in the last moment. So we made arrangements for food.


Waiting for the rest to come. And I though I was late!


A breather after the lovely ride first leg: Flooring it all the way was fun but the 0.8 ltr ran out of breath almost every where.

That's Wifey, JK, Max, Carfreak, Nikki and Quicksilver.
@ Quicksilver, I swear, we ARE married!!

Looking for Max since he disappeared with our food. We were really worried since Carfreak was with him too.


The rapids.






Zak junior wondering what Steer junior is upto.


Carfreak & Nikki visibly happy after the biryani. Guess Max didn't get enough.


I have no idea what i am doing here. Must be chicken in the biryani acting up.


That's Zak enjoying parenting.


And lastly, Quicksilver, SreejuP & JK.


After this, Anju and I had to return. But never the less, those 2 hours was well worth it. The drive back home was fun too, flooring it for 4 - 5 hrs with just Bob Dylan for company. Anju was 'Sleeping in my car'.

Wifey shot a nice video of the drive from chalakudy to athirampally. But i can't seem to view it on my standby desktop. Will upload it soon.

Ciao.
