Suman bro, I really thank Heaven that you haven't started cornering 800's as GD is doing with jeeps ferrying milk. otherwise people will have to run for cover on the sight of Scorpio with big lights and horns & HR 26 no. Arctic silver 4X4 Safari

Default Had a great time

Hi Guys,

guess i am the last one to reply on this thread. I was hungover till today morning..(another party on Saturday night). But i must say, never expected the meet to be the way it turned out. Loads of fun. Was great meeting all of u, and had an amazing time. And will never forget the "Surplus and the Excess" funda given by GD bhai. Looking forward to the next meet.

Cheers

Nitin

No one was offended, including me. KD, why is this 'offending' business cropping up? Pankaj, you were a laugh riot man. Still break into bouts of laughter remembering 14th evening. And my staff, with every passing day is getting more convinced that their boss has lost his beans..

See ya guys around.

LOL, I said PM, else you may reach the 7 star status of being BANNED! And I don't want to be responsible for even another infraction!

Thumbs up A few musings on the meet......

Well, a big thank you to Girish for getting us the awesome venue at an amazing price. For those of you who couldn't make it, we actually ended up at a venue that was way better than Visage - Morrison Cafe (on the 2nd floor) and that too, all by ourselves.

Unlike a lot of other places, the supply of starters was steady throughout (I don't know where KD was looking for the chilly potatoes that he mentions but they were very much there, on the bar counter) & the main courses & desserts were more than adequate.

Except for Panty12345, Speedonline, Elito11 & Ashishg2dec, all others on the confirmed & tentative lists landed up (even Vijit was there) which was quite a change I thought. The evening progressed quite well with good snacks, nice music, excellent liquid refreshments & a whole lot of chatter & banter & fairy tales. And pictures. And, of course, the theme!!

Shuvd was a very dignified chief guest throughout & not once did the colorful language & gestures manage to perturb him. Pankaj - what more can I say about him except that he's a really large hearted guy & he drives an Ikon 1.6 (old fond memories), got me a cake, wasn't that real nice of him! Anonymous did an "Ishan" on Lavkesh (Extreme_ Torque) and kept him waiting in front of the Ford showroom for a couple of hours (all because E_T told him he liked Ford!). Khaadu - our very own 7 starrer, was good to see you again. And a special vote of thanks to our brethren from Freedabad for driving all the way - Kp & Zucchero Ramaswamy - not often that we are graced with such VIP presence!

The liquor continued well past the deadline thanks to the gentle persuasions of Girish & Ishan; we were finally ushered out politely but firmly in the wee hours of the morning, a few pics were clicked for posterity in the Planet M quadrangle & then we left in various convoys towards various directions. Reached home around 2 am, LOL, what a party it was. As Ash & others have mentioned, what can be better than meeting up another 15-20 like minded guys on a Friday evening.

Thanks to all of you who took the trouble of coming for the meet - you made this a grand success. At one stage, with so many unconstructive suggestions flying around, we were wondering if the meet would happen. That's when a few of us took the discussions off-line & decided that, come what may, we were going ahead & having a successful meet. Thanks Girish, at that point, for getting the minimum guarantee lowered although we finally had quite a few more. Thanks Ashish & Ishan & Metropolis & everyone else for all the motivation & help including sending PMs & smses confirming that we were hitting our Friday numbers!

We intend to have another meet like this sometime in the second week of April, so watch this space!

PS: There was something that followed me almost all the way home till I turned off the expressway, I initially thought it was a fly but turned out that it was KD's white 800. Heh-heh, just kiddin mate but do be careful on that expressway at night - too many trucks spread across all the lanes.

Summary, vummary toh sab theek hai bhai log. Where are the pictures? The pics are the only source for us to be a part of this circus called Team-BHP, which by the way, is very very addictive.

I have already thanked everybdy in my previous post about the meet, iT was awesome and fab.

@ GD & Suman, I think I'll forward the posts you guys put up about the video of the undressing at the LFW to your better halves, I think they wouldn't mind watching it with you. Would love to see this happen.

Hmm lets c I might just put it as a special screening for our next meet. yaay! the next meet is already on the cards.

Now that's what i call On a roll. Guess It actually paid off getting you guys out of bed on that saturday morning.

@ Ishan: Wher art thou? Please post the pics!

Default Of horns & such like............

OK, this may be a little OT but guys who attended the meet will be able to relate to this; below is the PM exchange between GD & Doc Abhijeet that I was telling you guys about. This is hilarious, enjoy!

As far as 'big horns' are concerned, here in Gurgaon we get only of big cows and stud bulls. If you are looking for the horns of Bisons or Yaks or the African Bull Buffalo, then they need to be imported for which you need to possess a wildlife licence.

Now, if by 'big horns' you mean the audio kind that are fitted on 4 wheel & 2 wheel jalopies, then I would suggest you should go for the Stebel Nautilus. They come in single units and installing a pair gives the right kind of effect within the legal limits. You may like to contact Deepak Batra on +919810205470 with my reference.

BTW, 'swift' is a high altitude flying hunter bird...!!

Your name suggests and paints a picture of a serious kinda person and you may find my narration weird. But that's the way I am.
