I wanted to shoot, but I can't drive and shoot. Wife and kids playing in the waves.

You are right, Noise filter shouldn't matter. I need to go through all the settings again.

Maruti views their target customers for GV very differently, they are surely not thinking about people like sudev or myself who would take it off the normal roads.

Thumbs up Scenic place !

Wonderful report and pics, Samurai
The photo from the forest dept. cottage, showing the river joining the sea, is absolutely breathtaking. This makes me want to visit the place. Is that hill-top cottage reachable by public road?

Yeah, you can even go there in a bus, let alone car.

Is it a wonder they are not able to sell decent quantities of it? I keep telling the Ford Endeavour and Pajero dealers to start trail blazing activities so people buy into the experience. Maruti needs to do the same.

BTW you and Sudev are the best ambassadors for the GV. How can a company not see that what you guys do with the GV will invariably draw more into the fold.

They probably do not understand despite seeing. Few months back we had a member Radhika Das (newbie team BHP) who was responsible for creating advertisement for Grand Vitara. She went through all the GV threads on the forum and even invited feedback from the owners (Grand Vitara Owners).

After all that, nothing happened, no change in the ads to reflect the ideas and feedback she took from here.

Well looking at what Samurai and sudev do with the vehicles the sales should go up but it aint as maruti is not focussing on that.

Well samurai great pictures. The one in the last is mindblowing. Perfect advert material.

Good decision not going to malpe. Its outright dirty as they got these small shacks and also got camel rides and stuff. So there is animal droppings all over. Plus the smell is not good there.

Nice travelogue. Pictures as usual are very nice.
Your Little one is grown up now, I remember your last visit same place when he was a few months old. Times goes by very fast or probably kids grows even faster.

Cheers
