I assume that this is for the drive and not extra curricular.

Guys, lots of OT discussions are going on (including mine).

Let the guys stick to their travelogue. MJ the sooner you post it (of day 4/5/6) it would be better for you. Otherwise, this thread might be hijacked with lot of OT discussions. (My opinion).

Nothing wrong with OT discussions. The drive was about having fun. This report is all about sharing that fun with others.

Wow, that was an awesome trip. My personal regards to you guys for completing it successfully.

Darn.. I could have met you when you were at Thane or Chembur. You guys would have passed Vashi on your way to Chembur; thats where my office is located, anyways...guess there is always a next time.


Eagerly waiting for the rest of the travelogue.

On day 3, after behror, it was quite foggy. here are the pictures. Believe me, if one is not used to heavy north India fog, it can be a real pain driving through such fog.

Look at the dazed face of Hrishi driving through the heavy early morning fog.
GQ Drive: 2vehicles, 4meets, 5bhpians, 6days, 13states, 6000KMs.-img_0782.jpg

In parts of UP, the minimum a two wheeler can carry is decided by the size of the family. here you go. Count how many.. I think Ratan Tata saw these and got the idea for the NANO. Poor fellow, he doesn't know that in the Nano, they will take a full 'baraat'.

The early morning run for distributing milk.

In UP, we even found peacocks lazily eating in the fields.

HVK -- by a mile. I think, In Hrags camera, I captured kumar in one of those 'extra curricular moments' and you can notice the 'urgency' there.

@Hrishi: put up that picture man.

Spot on. That's what India is. A land full of diversity. and we are very very lucky to have observed this diversity first hand in just 6 days. Try however we much through pictures/posts we can never capture that diversity thorough our posts. It has to be experienced to be believed..

Hi,

I have counted two adults and 4 kids on a bike in Ernakulam. One kid was in front of the gent and three in between him and the lady behind. Since they were crossing in front of me, I am not sure whether the lady was having one more on her lap!

And @hrag,

That 'stud' comment for one of the pictures may not be appropriate!
