Hope things get cleared with good signboards and enough barricades on those area.

On lighter side, How much is it to setup a service center from maruti?

Dear Shiv,

It is indeed great to know that you were finally able to complete the GQ drive.
Congrats.

I have been following silently through your planning and then this travelogue and the unfortunate incident.

But great to see your resilience to complete the drive.

how has the car been since its back from the hospital?

Or to become a cop and be placed there.
ROTFL.

unni.ak, Hurrycane12, PatienceWins, leadf00t, MileCruncher, MuraliR, pypkmsrikanth, dushmish, akroy, menonrajesh, Silver Knight

Thanks a lot for the support & motivation, I'm afraid photos were the last thing on our mind, we had tuned all our senses on the car, noting down even the smallest of problems. We had noted almost 30 small nitty gritty issues from the test drive that had to be fixed before we left for bangalore

Hvkumar, Thanks a lot, without you we would not have completed soon.As I told you that thing about Sivaji Ganesan & the rest, you got it I'm sure.

hrag, ramky, you are heaven sent for me, need I say more.

mjothi, no extra signboards/baricades as of now, as for the service station idea, it won't click because this accident spot (Bichiwada, Dungarpur district) is half way between Udaipur & Ahmedabad(both 150kms), hence car owners prefer to tow it/truck it to either of these cities, usually Ahmedabad is preferred as it is the largest city in Gujarat with 4 Maruti dealers(all 4 are useless)
It makes more sense you run a crane service/lorry service, even an ambulance would be bad idea since that spot rarely spills blood


Once again if I have forgotten somebody, it is totally my fault
