Great meet. The service at the dhaba left a lot to be desired and the flies didn't help matters either. But, was a lovely drive in the rain and it was great catching up with all the folks. Missed those who couldn't make it.

A great meet once again. The rains did add an extra touch. Thanks to all who joined. We missed the rest of you.

Thanks Anirban for the pics. Waiting for the rest of them.

@Ayan : your sketches are mindblowing. Would suggest you continue this seriously.

it was a great meet as always. thanks everyone for making it. the rain god added a bit to the fun.

the food and service at the dhaba were disappointing. Kolaghat Sher-e-Punjab can be avoided on National holidays / holidays. Next time i am sure we will arrange something better.

it was nice meeting the youngest of the lot @ Ayan! - his car sketches were awesome. hope to see you again man!

we discussed nothing but cars - the Cedia, the new Lancer, the Scorpio, the Pajero, the Safari, the Xylo attracted a lot of discussion and debates.

The one and only red car didn't even manage to keep up with the faster cars in the group thanks to the driver's skills. but the driver enjoyed every bit of it.

We spotted 4-5 Rally prepped Esteems returning from the Kalinga Rally organized by BMSC.

Saurabh da's rally prepped esteem looked awesome. so did the other cars - Aniket's Verna crdi, the Phoenix, NOS' Zen (dude - get a loud exhaust now), premjit's Aveo. Did i forget to mention my favourites: the F1-d Silver Arrow (Shuvc's Baleno) and 1100D's Ikon.

i thought a lot of Pics were taken where are they?

People who made it to the meet:

1. Rocker & ETC - Palio 1.6 GTX
2. 1100D, Merc S and Merc C & cousin - Ikon 1.6
3. Shuvc & Ninja(wifey) - Baleno 1.6
4. Razor - Phoenix (Lancer)
5. Xeta
6. Premjit and better half, Shamoshree (hope i spelt it right) - Aveo 1.4
7. Joseph (NOS) - Carb Zen
8. Aniket - Verna crdi
9. Ayan!
10. Saurabh M - Rally prepped Esteem

EDIT: Post Drive 'n Adda Meet

We (Joseph, Anirban, Saurabh, Ayan and group) went for tea at Ganga-r Ghat (Outramghat) - but due to unavoidable Exhaust-Gas-Recirculation (EGR) - ETC had to declare emergency and we (etc and i) head back home leaving the group without having tea.
