@Raj, i have been dying to try out the MMTS. Guys, dont be surprised if i emerge out of a crowded MMTS train in my borrowed Kurta and self pyjama which would be completely crumpled with sweaty arm-pits.

At least i am going to be safe from the dangers of our roads. Anyone getting ittar? Would need it for my sweaty arm-pits...heheh!

@Nag, congrats on toiling your way to half century. Now you can lounge around in shifting gears amidst the non-stop ramble of this thread

I have started a new thread on Hyderabad traffic and road conditions: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street...outes-etc.html (Hyderabad: Updates on traffic - diversions, road expansions, alternate routes, etc.)

Some of you know that I am wary of "road afar" or "road not recently travelled". There is a story behind it. I totalled my Hyundai Accent 3 years ago after hitting the road divider in front of Karkhana PS. Though I was high on an energy drink that day, I still believe that the main reason for the accident was the fact that I was completely new to that road and did not expect the road divider to suddenly appear in the middle of the road seemingly out of nowhere. That's why I always gather intelligence on the road conditions if I have to attend a party in an unknown place.

Exactly my point. But sadly, people out of Hyderabad relish the chicken biryani more than mutton which is quite sad. Rajesh bhai, you need to develop the taste of actual biryani pretty soon or you will have to be satisfied with Chicken Pulao all your life.... More on it this evening!!!



Raan sounds good but it needs to be garnished with you know what.

As mentioned in my menu post, lets keep it simple and not cram too many dishes. So we can decide on any one item. I am not particular ( unless somebody are) as Patthar ka Ghosh and Raan both sound quite good

Btw, lets drop the fancy word " Caterer". The right word here is a khansama. We are getting a cook and provide him with supplies and he does the honours.

When i mentioned Veg Kebabs, i meant the same what you described. It can be either in round shape or the sheek ones.

Omigosh!!! from a drive meet this thread is turning out to be a food thread...LOL
Veg seekh is passe, every eatery has it. The shammi is rarer.

Pathhar ka gosht too is pretty easily available. The raan however is not, even if it is on the menu, one has to have a pretty large number of people to share so it is not ordered often.

To keep it simple I suggest the following run:

1. Mutton Raan
2. Chicken tangdi / haryali kebab (like those chicken cafrael things)
3. Veg kebabs
4. Veg Biryani/pallav
5. Mutton biryani
6. Salan
7. Raitha
8 Double ka meetha / Shahi tukda. (Bidisha can educate us on the difference between the two and their finer points.)

Man does not live on cars alone! The drive is often much pleasanter when one knows that good things await you at the destination.

Cheers,

Sir, and where would you spitting out that Meetha Pan that you so plan to consume during the entire course of the ghazal? Receptacles to be ordered, or would it be the swimming pool that's in the terrace?

Guys,

I am going Non-Veg, I think after reading all the posts on menu, I will not be able to help myself stick to Veg.

@ram, sorry about that...but I will support you on choice of Veg...

personal experience once and only once in the mmts ,we guys took it from hi tech city station to go to s'bad station for the suryalanka train.

bought 1st class tickets ,train comes in after 30 mins of waiting(later got to know the frequency is 30 mins) unlike in mumbai where it comes every 3 -4 mins.

when the train finally arrives ,see ladies compartment filled with guys,2nd class ticket holders in 1st class ,no clue of the ticket checker

get pushed into the 1st class dabba by the crowd and get pushed out at s'bad station again.

jai ho MMTS!

Or do you guys want the Chandramukhi from the Rajini Kanth starrer movie which goes by the same name. I mean in full form. Would that help? Picturize that you naughty bachelors.

I'm a simple man with a simple mind. I don't get subtle hints especially when they are related to things of fun. Anyways since I'm heart broken I think I'll skip the Ghazal meet.
