By the way, Dr Pull - that girl that you wanted a shot of thru my 300mm (pics not posted here so as not to breach someone's privacy in public) turned out to be not so good-looking in the picture. Very bad teeth, too - thought I'd mention that since you're a dentist.

As they say - Good from far, but far from good!

Let me attempt:

It is the term used to describe the methodology adopted by those who try to manage lives in 2 countries, amongst a few properties and across 4 vehicles and come home for about a week at a time to handle about a dozen tasks each time - described by those that come home to have a few kallu sessions or wedding receptions.

The difference being that some of the commentators help out at the expense of their personal time and effort while some just come along to comment at the first party's expense, usually post-facto which, as they say in this part of the world, is something any policeman can do.

@steer- thanks for attempting- but I'm still lost. Never mind.

Did anyone talk about the "unexpected offroading" bit?

As we were preparing to leave, JKDas leaves his stash of kallu in the kar and claims he'll be driving one of the elantras for a while.

as we drive away, the other cars stop, and we see him coming from one of the other cars ( the TUD5 esteem?)

he goes all the way back, and runs back all excited

"one of the cars has gotten stuck in the mud"
"which one "
"err........."
"is it the endy or the safari?????"
"no comme... no wait, actually i dont know. lemme go see"

and he runs back to the parking lot. After a lot of time has passed, we seem him coming back, and getting into our car ( which is not an elantra btw )
and then there was no more talk about who got stuck
and everybody was good to go.
thats what we saw from our end. Anybody who was there as it happened?
jkdas ?

It would be best if prabhuav would explain the JCB and the Rose Story.
The unexpected offroading bit was the highlight of the Drive.
