The BHP-ian is a woman, and not an active member. I have said "Hi" to her. Seen the car around Koramangala 6th Block (Koramangala Club and its surrounds) a lot, so maybe she lives and/or works around there.
yep, that is one of the instances this car has been spotted. did not see an acknowledgement to your spotting, so wasn't sure.

Maybe it was intended for your neighbour.
May I add: Common Sense is most uncommon in common People (Also my signature.)

Very Good.
Men are not born Common. They achieve it because our education system, through rote learning, has made everyone nearly common (Lowest Common Mutant) - leave aside the TBHP freethinkers.

Forgive them,(for they know not what they are doing), for they trying to fight their mundane lifestyle by being 'Creatively aggressive' on the roads.

nope. i know approximately what position to hold the camera and the SLR gives a beep when in focus. once signal is received, artillery is dispatched never take your eyes off the road such speeds.

PS: the SLR is set in multi-shot mode, so i might get one or two good ones among many.

Great job! But I still find it risky to let one hand do something other than driving Sorry, just my opinion!

Sorry for going really O.T but just couldn't resist myself. I think I know where the h4wk learnt the skill of taking pics.

One hand on the joystick err steering, one hand on the camera!! Tell me, does your car have an autopilot?!!

No wonder you were able to get so many accurate shots while driving. So, all that practice on the joystick is not in vain then!!!!

This has probably been said a couple of hundred times before, but after another rainy night...

They drive in exactly the same way, at exactly the same speeds, leaving exactly the same distance (or, rather, lack of it) on wet roads as they do on dry.

Whoops ... that's about 99% of my fellow road users this morning

1. Motor bike rider with family
Dangerous - Motorbike rider with wife

Extremely dangerous - Motorbike rider with wife and kids

The basic problem with such riders is simple - they expect you to take the responsibility of keeping them and their family safe on the road while they ride with not the slightest care or attention to rules.

Drive on,
Shibu

Default Take a look at this Father.

Saw this Idiot riding his souped up bike with his wife and a small kid.
The lady made the kid stand on the seat and was just holding his arm for the support.She must be thinking that she is sitting at home with the child.The child was cranky even when the bike was in motion.
This guy was riding without realizing that his entire khandaan is sitting behind, and was zipping in and out of the traffic flow as he must be riding during the day when he is alone. Habits dont die fast.

Look at where the Hyundai guy has stopped in the below pic. Also notice the pedestrians crossing the road while a FOB lies unused.
