Is it not the best travelogue on TBHP?

Thanks for bringing this gem of a TL up. I had missed this originally too. Read it end to end in a couple of go's, totally enthralling!

Khaleed bhai, shukriyaa for such an amazing perspective of your trip. I admire the fact that you (and your fellow passengers) had the patience and understanding to enjoy whenever the opportunity presented itself despite so many adverse conditions. Especially appreciate the way you have described the tu tu main main at Jama masjid

Started reading this travelogue 2 days back and just finished. Excellent writeup.

Khalid bhai, hats off to you .

Its just like a super suspense movie running before my eyes .

Your travelogue not only gives a mix of different emotions (Joy, Frustration, Happiness etc) to the readers, but also tells how to maintain cool and how to keep going when many unwanted incidents happen one by one.

Khaleed Bhai, Amazing thread, what narration and hats off to your funny side, above statement again proves it
Can't believe I missed this thread in 2010...

On a serious note, your experiences definitely have a lot of lessons for everyone and we owe it to you to make sure we don't repeat any of them!

Thanks for being so positive and if possible post the latest photo of the hero / villain of your travelogue...

Czar bhai, your way with words is about the best I've read. I don't remember the last travelogue I read word for word, lest I miss some part of the fun! Thank you for the great time I had vicariously. :-D

I read this TL a couple of days ago and still break out into chuckles remembering some of the incidents that you experienced. A very humorous TL indeed and your writing style interspersed with the Hyderabadi Hindi was the icing on the cake.

You took all the breakdowns of the Scorpio and your self very much in stride and that just shows your wonderful character.

I can imagine this being made into a pretty funny movie infact. Well done!

What an absolutely amazing travelogue. I had not seen it before and I just read the entire in short breaks. I have been on it since the last 1 hour.

Its amazing how the ladies have gone through this. And you narrated all this in humor !!

It is an actual nightmare what you went through buddy !

Rating it 5 stars.

Happened upon this TL again today.

Could not resist going through it again. Tenth time I think.

Am still chuckling. Hence this message.

Khalid bhai, you are the best story teller by a mile on the forum.

Thanks a lot, once more.

Thanks for bringing this thread up on the lsit, else I would have missed a real gem.

Khaleed Bhai, the whole reading experience was just awesome. You are a great story teller and the Hyderabadi dialects have added stars to your travelogue.

Wish to see many more travelogues like this, well I mean entertaining ones and not those of 'Choo Cha' wala!

Regards,
Saket

Thanks a ton brother.

These kind of things are, well, once in a lifetime is probably safe to say. But you never know what life throws at you.

Planned Hyd-Del-Shimla for 27dec - 3jan. lets see what happens now.
