the aroma of freshly cooked kappa ( as mentioned previously, the non i10 kind) proved to be too much to resist

WHO has the 35 litre can? We need to keep it for future meets.

an unlicensed t-bhp bottling plant was setup at the venue. A S H V I N happily volunteered. He said needed to learn some trades to get by so that he could build an AC doghouse, which was JCB proof. I'm still not clear about the JCB concept

some downed theirs straight from the bottle. Jkdas took centerstage where he was reminded of kb100's sig ( "a closed mouth gathers no feet " several times ) He tried moving to the sidelines, but could not escape from losing a few goals !

drpullockaran after downing his, found that this was the best seat in the house. However he was surprised to find out at one point, we were all discussing root canals and c1/c2 fractures! . he never expected this at a t-bhp meet

mansidea at one point was confused whether to drink tea or kallu. The answer was simple..... BOTH!

Default a TORQUE-y D R I V E!!

Thanks all for making this a wonderfull weekend for me.


Enjoyed the drive to the core... humble Innova got tortured to the extreme limits in all ways. It was indeed a tough job catching those elantras who were running on high Vitamin-P. They were well above 160kms/hr on straight streches... should I talk bout the beemer then
The Beemer's extra power on wheels and the incredible drivability factor ensured its way ahead of all the cars!
Safari and Endeavour was on high spirits as usual! Guess the safai moves only at 140km/hr these days!!
Sedate traffic complimented by a 'sunday' helped us b l a s t the cars on road!

Cruise was also well arranged stuffy! Not even a minor issue! Thanks to the operators for that great hospitality and courtesy! Boat was damn neat and food they served was delicious!
It would've been more exciting if there was allround visibility of scenery! Make it a point to choose a boat with open-shaded-hall on top of the rooms.
In our case, soon we all got into the medical and automotive talks.
Many were busy firing the cams! We had all.... card size cameras to the real 'bazooka's!!!! HOTest Pictures are yet to follow I guess. So keep watching out!

Here are few pictures from my cam.

Nikkibike u got some amazing pics .
really loved them. Especially from 5th to 8th pics . Seems like you really got the hang of that camera.

Should mention the drive back
I was the first one to leave after all the offroading by the safari.
I was averaging a speed of 100-120kms/hr while explaining some of the stuff in idrive to rest of the people in the car and within like 15 minutes the first elantra just zipped past my car and i assumed that the elantra would be doing atleast 160kms/hr at that time and we all were literally shaken.

I had to increase my pace and caught the elantra at a signal and i was told that the elantra almost touched 180kms/hr . once the signal went green i took off past the elantra and then in my rear view mirror i saw the second elantra coming and a small dog fight building .

By then i realized it was too dangerous for me to be in the front cause literally it was my first time with my BMW doing 140-150 and slowed the pace and let both the elantras pass me .

We we literally tailgating both the cars for the rest of the journey and trust me it was amazing to see the battle between both the Vitamin-P elantras which were swapping places at every given opportunity . Both the elantras were averaging 160-170 while we were following them and watching the dog fight by keeping a safe distance

Muneemmk tried to take a video from behind which was really a huge failure.

WAS AN AMAZING DRIVE BACK

And I think he said it felt like some rickety jeep he once drove - So the next time we say that a car felt like a boat, be aware that we say it on authority of actually having driven a boat !

steeroid spotted a seemingly antique boat with whitewall (!) tyres. but it was too far away, and it was not his type (it was working fine )

From the past 24 hours or so, I've been just oogling on this thread and huh....
I couldn't even type a word down. My fingers have almost burned down with jealousy.
BLISTERING **** BARNACLES!! LUCKY ARSENALS!! HOW DARE YOU ALL DO THIS TO ME??? Such a great meet and nobody could send me a ticket?
Beware of my revenge once I'm back in god's own country! Especially, YOU spaced out M O T T A ! !

Guys! These words are coming straight out from my heart. You all rock! Amazing is not the word! No words would do justice to such a wonderful meet.

Chhe!! I should've just did a detour even if it was risking of getting kicked out from the family for the whole future life.
Keep the pictures and inside stories coming. It's almost like we all are just there with you enjoying the meet. So much life in photos!
Poratte... poratte! Aan de... Aan de! Keep it coming!!
