Bonobashi had said, "if you have to buy a pre-1930 car which one would you buy?" and Punnya said this one and BB said it's not pre-1930 so should not be included.
But YOU, having royally ditched us all, have no right to ask what went on at the meet. (no icon for daant kirmir) I had promised my daughter that there would be a friend for her (meaning your daughter) at the meet and she was quite disappointed to find no one.

Nice meet and report. Looks like a total bash!

The "We are not brothers" and "Turn Me On" captions are priceless. )

But I also missed ADC and Anirban. ADC of course had ruled out participation right in the beginning but Anirban ditched pretty royally at the last moment. In his and his family's absence, my daughter became the only child in the meet :(

I think now we should plan for a long drive kind of meet before the end of winter.
Am I frustrated or what?

Tuhin overhauled and rehabilitated our common grand-dad's Plymouth just in time for me to get massive street cred with all the right social circles in Cal in '74-'75; conveniently for me, he pushed off to the UK, with lamentable lack of strategic forethought, and left the field wide open, as it were.

In the North, they have the phrase 'G***d masti'. More or less in that spirit, he and his kid brother, on his return (I forget exactly when) stripped down and rehabilitated a Baby Hindustan with their own lily-whites. It was worth seeing jaws drop and eyes round up at the meet as T described what they did.

While he's done most of the roads and trips I've done and some more, his kid brother is the maniac. This Puja holiday he (along with his wife) did Cal to Shirdi and back in their Getz; last year, they were less ambitious, and stuck to Cal-Varanasi-Khajuraho and back. Weekends they usually head for Puri.

Tuhin is in a red T-shirt in the pictures. The Lang Karl in a green top that you see sitting under the gazebo is the younger son of Tuhin's sister, the third in the trio. This cat, while in Pune, did Pune-Goa in a jeep with his pal and two others, and has a story to tell. Just now, I am being VERY nice to him, as the same pal has promised him and his friends (a friendly uncle is a friend, innit?) Srinagar to Leh with bells and whistles. Oooh-er.

I'm trying my damnedest to get T into Team-BHP, but the horrible chap has a job that keeps him on the hop all the time, and has been shying away. Not, in my humble opinion, a good enough reason. I hope when he reads this that he will curl up with shame and subscribe. C'mon, old boy, take your finger out and get on with it.

I have tried thrice to upload the photos, but every time ended up knocking my head on the wall. This is my fourth attempt. Lets see.

Xeetagl - thanks for the pics. But I am sorry I can't place you. What car were you driving? Or could you please identify yourself in one of the pics?
Thanks in advance and sorry about this shameless post.

Looks like all of you had the best Kolkata Meet ever. It seems that UC did a great job. I feel bad for not being able to attend the meet. Hope there will be much more to come in the coming months. Can't wait to get back to the roots.

@Sudipto-da : Do we have a serious contender for the famed "Jogajog Ratna Award"?

Jogajog Ratna remains Jogajog Ratna. He worked very hard to create this critical mass at a time when this group was more loose and less connected. Now that there is a larger number of keen participants it is relatively easier to get them all together.
This is not to take any credit away from UC who organised a fantastic show (including some impromptu daab at the last moment). He should be given Organiser of The Year Award.

Whooops. I am so sorry. I did listen to the songs from a distance (more like a background music). When I was posting that bloomer, I sort of half knew very soon I would have to put my foot in my mouth.
By the way, what's the name of the guy who came in a beautifully kept cream Premier Padmini?

Truckloads of thanks to all the members who attended and made this Team-BHP Kolkata Baganbari Meet a GRAND SUCCESS. Without all of your constant help,this meet wouldn't have been possible.



@ Fatal: We will miss you man,be back soon!
@ Planet: Whats up for December boy? A new thread should we say?
