Nice Travelogue with great narration. What caught my eye was the group pic at McD. Satyanarayan is my cousin brother . So you both are colleagues?

Awesome travelogue. Rated 5 stars for the excellent narration.

Going back is so satisfying.

What a drive sir moreover solo, Salute your "himmat" and "Jasbaa" (Strength and Passion). Your write up is not less than your drive it has made a good combo.

The Incident

So with that dose of reality I sober down the rest of the way and sooner than I realise I have reached home.

This is one ambitious trip to say the least considering you did it solo. I enjoyed your narration right from the first word and the layout of how a epic tour plan gets approved from the home ministers and friends. Beautiful pics, lovely places and yes, Mount Abu is one fabulous destination to relax and rejuvenate.

Your incident reminds me of a similar incident I had to face, when a over loaded truck steered from the middle lane to right most lane while I was on the right lane just about to overtake him. I had to brake hard in my Swift Dzire and fortunately, did not loose much traction nor hit the divider except some wheel skid.

The overall problem is, a handful of people are unaware of lane discipline, do not use turn indicators, outside/rear view mirrors and have less or nil knowledge of road safety.

Nice Travelogue bro. Could feel the nostalgia as I too spent a few years in Nasirabad, Rajasthan and had done a similar sort of trip in 2010.

Thanks Venku. My philosophy is never to dwell on things for long. Yeah, you acknowledge and learn from the incident and move on.

Thanks Sami. In this chaotic life moments like these are what keeps me sane and this was the motivation behind the trip.
