Hey Tacho,

Thanks for the heads-up. But the author got me confused with Gautam Sen. I have left a comment on the blog - let's see what happens.

Thumbs up Fantastic guys

Hi Sam and N_C,

This is indeed a commendable achievement.

There couldn't be a better PR for Nano than this thread.

I guess all the apprehensions people had can be laid to rest

It's time to tell the world that it is indeed a complete "car"

Fantastic travelogue (as always)

Cheers

Sateesh

Well, since the author claims to be a friend of Gautam Sen and met him recently, atleast you can rest assured that you look and talk like an Auto India editor

BTW, about time your trip got some more publicity. It was really enjoyable to follow your journey.

Edit: cannot see your comment on that blog yet.

Blog author Nick Kurczewski posted this correction about mistaken identity on 1-Jan.
"Upon further review of the video — and careful consideration about strengthening the prescription of my eyeglasses — it appears I mistakenly identified one of the Nano travelers as my friend Gautam Sen. Instead, it was Gautam Raisinghani in the video, and I thank him for alerting me to the misidentification."

Fantastic job guys, the read was just fab. This thread has truly inspired me to undertake a similar journey from Delhi to Hyderabad in a NANO soon, so watch out!

Wow,

What a superb travel diary. Really enjoyed the videos too. The car looks real stable and sufficiently fast. The videos reminded me of what I miss from driving in India. Going fast in India makes you a much better skilled driver.

Hi Sam,

Checked out all the videos of your Tata Nano trip to Delhi. Your narration style was awesome. I specially liked the part when the Nano was in a Toll booth in the Heavy Vehicle lane and you said we should ask, kya yeh yahan se jaa sakti hai...lagega to nahi..

Interestingly, the engine of this Tata Nano has seized, inexplicably.

Discussions are on with Tata motors regarding the next step. The Tata motors showroom A.S.S. has declared that they cannot help us under warranty as the car has been "modified" - even though the engine is untouched.

nice way of them to wash off their hands. However, wondering how can engine of the car seize unless there is some technical problem.
