Visited Vaahan Yatra today. The exhibition was just average, mainly display of OEM cars.

Was at the VY ,I was wondering there are only two Swifts there at JBL, so what's all the fuzz about two pairs of twins Sam was talking about .But then came Sam along with the other pair
Totally bowled over by the twins (OK I'm talking about the Swifts,the evil twins, so don't get any other ideas). Sam, the sound was just awesome although it still have the signature brightness of JBL.Me and my friend were just talking nothing else but the awesome thunderous music of the Evil twins after the VY[and actually JBL showroom was the only saving grace].We actually thought that the mass of air thrown back by the subs will be enough to move the cars, he he.

pardon my ignorance, but I can see couple of faces repeated (except Sam!), I'm just trying to understand if these guys are upto nothing (professionaly) that they go ahead with every meet whether inter-city or intra-city OR these guys are related to the car audio industry (hence touring) OR they are filthy rich (like rags) to blow up their (or their Dads) hard earned money, wasting time OR is it a part of the organized show (TBhp sponsoring) OR what is it?

I'm clueless.... Can someone care to explain??

My quick trip-report:

As soon as I entered the exhibition area, the first thing that came to my mind was: Man, this place is crowded!

Checked out the new Tata Safari, just to see how the beige interiors are. Next stop is Maruti: The Maruti guy was keen on making a spotaneous sale. But, I was done with my grocery shopping in the morning. So, I move on.

Proceeded to the JBL stall, said hi to the t-bhpians there. Sadly, they are taking a break. Sam says they will start at about 3:00-3:15. I look into his watch and it shows 2:35. So, I move on to see rest of the stuff.

Next stop is the Yamaha stall. The MT with its V-block captivates me. I am admiring the beauty of the bike, when a booth bunny springs up and asks “May I help you sir?”. I look around and see people all over the place posing with the bikes and doing what not. Why did she single me out? Anyway, I ask: “Can I take this home in exchange with my Tata-Safari? How much would I need to pay more?” I don’t know why she doesn’t understand my business proposal and disappears…

Move on to the Stanley stall, its nice and dark inside. With the dark environs, I wonder how these guys protect the exhibition girls from being molested by the unruly crowd?

As most of the guys have mentioned, the rest of the show was all OEM cars and accessesories. Yeah, there was a Reva without a Top which looked cute. Placed in the same stall was a DC contraption which made Reva look even more wierd. DC, you could have spared the toy car atleast!

I flip open my phone and see the time: It is 2:50, the JBL guys (and gals) will take a while to start. The afternoon heat and crowd isn't making the wait any more pleasant. So, I log-out. May be, I will meet the twins some other time .

Out of interest, why would it matter to you if they were wasting their life/profession/dad's money/their own money?

Dont be clueless, answer is simple and straightforward. they are passionate enough to put the effort and enjoy it. Most of them are actually managing their profession quite well

Coincidence, may be ? Wait - may be more than coincidences. There was this thing about body doubles and some weird happenings. @Zak, any idea what's happening here ?

a) No one need explain the presense at any show or any number of shows.

b) Panky, there is no need to single out any TBHP member. This would be ground for an infraction (which you will receive).

c) TBHP is not connected to Vaahan Yatra. TBHP is a strictly non-commercial organisation/website.
