Well, whenever MJ sat in my Scorpio, the frequency of such halts increased, provoked by the abrupt braking manoueveres and sharp start-gos that characterise my driving style!!!

don't worry, we have pics of everyone indulging in this extra curricular activity. No one will be spared. Just wait as the thread progresses.

and yes, hvkumar was extremely fast and time conscious while indulging in these extra curricular activities. He just didn't want to loose too much time here also.

So MJ was not used to hvk's driving tactics. Poor fellow he fell into the trap. Do you have taken pics of extra+extra cirricular activities?

You guys need to watch the scene in 'American Pie - The Naked Mile' where a solution to such situations are given!

This is hilarious and what's more funny is the fact that the plant/shurb next to the place, where mjothi is engaging in 'extra curricular activity', is looking like a plant called "Be-sharam" in M.P. It is called so because it practically grows anywhere.

Sorry mjothi for laughing at your expense.

I have to be a little different on all the postings and I cannot repeat the same old thing in each and every post. Hence I could not mention as you have indicated.

Day 3 was more fun in the sense we had the opportunity to see so many different types of goods/people carrier.

We started around 6am from Behror and it was heavily foged. We could not even see the vehicle hood end from the inside. It was so dense. We had a real bad fog and were driving very very slow. With great struggle we crossed and reached Gurgaon. Our guys were waiting there.

Also, Hrag's sister stays in there. Btw, 3 people who came there were infact from the same lane. Such a small world.

We had hot filter coffee. A typical chennai coffee miles away from chennai. Wow. Thanks to her.

We had nice scenes of Mama & Machhan having fag, sad i missed the pics on that.

Then we say bye to them and start. Hrag's sister was assuming that we are following their car to go to a pump to fill in gas. She was so surprised when we took a U-Turn. Btw, we also was so surprised when the scorpio in front took the U-Turn. We just follow that. What to do?

The "Pasa paravai" called her anna and enquired about that. Anna was so good in answering, "Seems the destination is changed, we are not coming to fill in gas" After this the "Pasa malargal" departed with bye on the phone. Thanks to the DoT.

We had good Aloo paratha as BF and continued our odyssey.

When we reached Mathura, the worst part started. The traffic slowly increased and we got royally stoped by the police to give way for another VIP. So, we lost some time there.

Then we crossed Akbar tomb on left and Taj mahal on the right when you cross the Yamuna river. No no, dont ask me anything about this place We could not even stop to take a picture.

The whole stretch from here to Allahabad was an excellent drive with such a nice roads.

Some where in the middle, there was traffic jam in front of the petrol pump. it was a one sided roaded. The other side was still on construction. So, the traffic got messed with some vehicles entering the pump, some exiting with some more going to and fro the pump.

Luckily it did not last long and we were able to get cleared from there soon. Thanks to school days scouts & RSP.

When we were nearing Allahabad, the worst of worst lorry traffic hit us. But our HVK was smart enough to take the 3rd lane in the 2 lane road. yes, the mud portion on the extreme right.

But then we realized that if we had not taken this, then we would have easily lost atleast 2 hours in the Jam. The main problem is, lorry drivers stop and go in front to see what happened. But before they return the traffic moves and starts piling behind his own lorry.

Since we were little delayed in scheduled, we decided to halt in Allahabad instead fo Varanasi. We got a good hotel and with our Khan saab with us we got a good deal too.

Time to sleep, rest continues after our sleep...

DO NOT DISTURB!!!
