One more prime time soap opera on T (v) -BHP has ended. Only difference is this is Incredible Series in compared with K series soap operas on some our channels.

* it had an incredible title,
* two famous and well known actors in the lead role,
* one ever dependable and reliable charactor actor (your Chevvy),
* great locales (majestic and beautiful rajasthan),
* fantastic retakes (different photographs of the same scene from different angles),
* great stunts (in driving, photographing, in experimenting with food),
* suspense (at the end of every post),
* action (record number of photos, over 360 posts, number of stars/reviews etc),
* subtle but visible romance between the lead actors,
* a great finish (safe, secure, without any mis-hap)
* happy actors as well as viewers
* happy censor board (Mods)
* happy theater owners (over 15000 views and increasing)

Thanks Smartcat. I somehow prefer the HPS or the Human Positioning System. I have complete faith in HVK. I never lost my way even once when we followed his logs.

When we returned, I took a wrong turn and we suffered. We tend to stop thinking, when we buy a GPS. I don't get lost, I discover new places, as my friend MX6 says!!!

Thank god you were carrying a camera and not a gun.
Nice calculation, MX6. Thanks for the appreciation. It was one hell of an effort!

You better start writing something or the other soon, else life in office will be really boring for a lot of us .
Thank you very much, Elantra. Udaipur is a must visit place in India. I would rate it very high in terms of beauty!

Based on what Star mentioned, I have a new name for you two.

"The Incredibles". Just that they are two in number!

Thanks Ampere. These are some of the best pics from the 360 odd posts in the travelogue. It is to refresh the old readers's memory and to let the new readers know what is inside!

CL - Amazing photos. Those last posts of yours covering all the best of the best photos is just....leave it; I dont have right word to describe it.

I so much missed reading this log for last almost a month. I will finish reading this log from my bookmarked page and meanwhile open my dictionary and find out choices of adjectives and superlatives to describe it.

Hey Majic, there you are! I was wondering where you were all these days! I want to thank you for your words of appreciation and for all your encouraging comments, right from day 1 of my journey.

The motivation I got from distinguished readers like you, Star, MX6, Ampere, Advait, Raj, Elantra, Srini and countless others, made me spend countless hours in front of my trusty old laptop, writing and fine tuning my story and my photos. I needed close to 10 minutes to process one raw photo, and make it perfect for viewing. So you can imagine the time I spent on the 2000 odd snaps posted here.

Thanks once again to all the silent readers also, who travelled with me!

@Advait, thanks a ton for the appreciation, my friend. As I mentioned above, your words of appreciation were worth a lot and it inspired me to make my log even better.

I would love to hear from you, once you finish reading my log.

CL - I finished reading this from where I left last month in single seating. And I did not find time (or did not find it interesting to go back to dictionary) to select right words from there. So, I would repeat what other readers have said.

Ampere : Well Begun,
Is Half Done.
Once done,
There is a next one!

"The Incredibles" are back in Pune. Where to next?

Star : Won't repeat the full stuff. But I second what he said. An incredible Soap Opera (thankfully without the "K" series theme) just ended.

Great Show. Keep it going. You have ready audience.
