BT,

What a lovely travalogue and fitting pictures... way to go.. keep on.

This police thing is an outrage.... is it only because of the elections they did this??????? I wonder, if they are not ripping off other cars too on some pertex or another.

High time some TV channel takes up the cause on behalf of tax paying public and exposes these scoundrals. If anyone has connections with the TV/Press, please tip-them off about the details of this incident, they're always hungry for something like this, would be happy to jump in and get some mielage for themselves and indirectly help the public.

HVK.... all the best for the rest of the Safari...

Then began the negotiation and they settled at a 2000 bribe for the pleasure of continuing our journey in a free shining india.
Preferred payment method, BT? gives stamped receipts or what?

My self and HVK have reached Hyderabad today. Started from Seoni @ 5 am and reached Medchal at 1 pm. Roads were fantastic. And thanks to HVK's planning we had a smooth drive all the way.

Next destination is Trivandrum but before that, I will respond to each of your posts in the times to come.

Watch this space for interesting visuals and incidents. [lots of stuff are pending]

, I was initially amazed at his trip logs. But when I executed similar planning, drive was smooth all the way. Inspiring stuff.

Nice travelogue, way to go.

1) A person still driving at the age of 76! I read somewhere that age is just a number, and HVK's uncle proved it right.

2) About the car being confiscated, what if a person is not having high reach ? This is pathetic and sometimes I feel these elections are nothing but a waste of public money. And why India comes up with idea of more states ? Just to have one more ministry to earn money.

How many other cars were confiscated like this near the place where they stopped you ? Did you spot other people like you who had lost their cars ?

India is going to people who don't deserve to be in power.

I would think twice before travelling to MP now.

3) Btirthankar, we need further stories on this and more images with those captions. Keep it up.
