If the roads in Mumbai are any indication, it's not going to be much fun playing join the dots on the highway. And by dots I mean potholes.

On the other hand N_C, come to Bangalore if nothing is happening there. We can go to Hosur together. It's a nice drive after that till Krishnagiri. Pretty good eating joints also.

Hahaha... ported...do NOT listen to a certain shutterbug moderator! I did, and with his encouragement, was responsible for the smallest, and shortest meet in TBHP history, 2 members for 5 minutes!

What Rudra sir, how about a new beginning for us localites?!

Alright, chal NC, Blore jaate hain, buy Diamond Vision and we can review them on the way.



These were the options I had thought of the last time around to which I received overwhelming response:

1). NH 8 Ahmedabad Road, To Manor. Distance: About 60 kms from Dahisar Check Naka.

2). Bordi Beach, something like 140 kms from Dahisar. In Satya's words " Raapchik jagah" Or Bordi Beach is 24 kms from Dahanu.

3). Mumbai-Manor-Dahanu: Dahanu is 50 kms from Manor, so that should be about 115 kms.

Seriously NC, is baar koi nahin aaya apun dono jayenge.
