You seem to enjoy every bit of your travel.. How did that accident happen and what are the damages to the car? Is the claim amount heavy to the extent that you need accident report or FIR?

The accident details is a story for another thread. Just didn't want to have this thread derailed from the travel.

Next in the pipeline is the road trip from Delhi-Bangalore I did a few months back .

@mcLaren1885, boss, that is some photography bro! The swift and the baleno together got me. I thought they are going to be launched through the screen any moment. Great work.

Not sleepless nights! Its a combined effect of skipping gym and doing weights by lifting his car with his bare hands to put it onto fork lifts and seeing people like me and some of Peter's boys drive his car .

True. Ripper now uses his car to work out. Even gets out and washes it, I heard.

Rahul, absolutely wonderful. I had also been to Peppara dam some time back. The ride was scary going through the forest road on a bike alone not knowing what to expect, but once there it is worth all the trouble. Do keep posting more of your travelogues, in the meanwhile i have seen all your travelogue, keep the good work going
