Well i'm finally awake after this trip and have managed to read through all the posts about it. One observation that i pointed out @ Hotel City Grand during lunch was that we (Team BHP) actually drove 300+Kms just to meet and greet and eat with GetSurya and Nag! Unfortunately the sight seeing was curtailed due that idiot auto rickshaw driver deciding to come in front of us (Me and Mobike). He should really thank his stars that it was only a car and not a Truck or a Bus that hit him else he would have been happily looking at the ongoings from a different stage/level altogether! Guess the people would have been collecting money for his funeral then instead of his injuries (Wishful thinking for all these scum). Judging by the amount of Autos that we saw seized at the police station, it seemed like a full fledged occupation of the local residents/auto wallahs to take sudden U Turns in the middle of the highway. Especially after seeing cars coming at them! Lets hope most of them are not back on the streets for a second attempt or even if they are back, they would have learnt their lessons (not too optimistic about the lesson per se but more hopeful of them meeting a bus/truck the second time around which would effectively get rid of them thus making the roads safer).

Brajesh, Is it correct if i assume that it was your wedding anniversary? If yes, belated best wishes to both of you

Brajesh: Do accept my belated wishes too. Heres wishing you and Mrs. many many more.

Thanks to all you rocking Hyd Team BHPians for a lovely day. You guys sure know to party eh.

Hey and one thing I'd like to clarify is that Zen, belongs to Prabhu, he owns it, However I guess I'd be using it more .

Special thanks to pulsar56 for being ever resourceful. He had almost anything and everything in his Car ready when asked for including a Hacksaw blade, cello tape, a good strand of electric wire, the regular tools etc etc.

Sorry dude. completely missed your post. hope you didn't mind.

As for the meet it was quite an eventful one. kudos to avi for recovering out of the shock to his true "spirits" so soon. Service and ambiance at the Elixir was awesome for a tbhp meet, thanks to Srikant and Naag.

So the silent killer finally spoke

Thanks buddy. Life is unpredictable. I was heartbroken for the first few minutes or more but then, i told myself, atleast i am alive and so is the other fella, that simple thought brought my smile and spirits back.

Come to think of it, never bothered to see the name of the restuarant that we lunched in. Thanks for letting the name out to folks like me who never noticed.

Elixir? I thought it was The City Grand Hotel.
Or was that the name of the restaurant?

venu sir elixir was the pub/restaurant we were in the hotel city grand.

interesting observation hunterz ,even i did not notice the name like most of us..

no wonder they call you the silent killer ,you talk less and observe more

did you take kamal hassan's pushpak movie so seriously kya just kidding!

Isnt Elixir also the name of the lounge bar at ginger court @ madhapur( my contribution to the observation bid)

@ nag -great pics of the temple and the lake ,now we know what we missed! anybody clicked pics of ghanpur p.s (our share of the sight seeing destination for nag and getsurya,lol)

aree bhaiya aur pics kidhar hai?

Thanks Rajesh. I agree most of us were too busy gulping fluids to notice the name of the pub.
As regards pics of Ghanpur P.S., i guess the photographers were scared to offend the sharp-shooters on the tower of the P.S.
