Sir, I'd deliberately misquote taare zameen par... "every pic is special" :-P show us whatever you have, please!

It was a great meet. The gathering and quality of interaction were very matured (even though some of the members turned out to be much younger than I had expected)!

There were about 35 odd love stories between men and their machines and they were equally beautiful. Unfortunately, we did not have time to get to know all of them. Their is one special among the ones I got to hear today that touched my heart. It is Rishi's story with his Pisi's M800. It reminded me of my first love, my father's M800.

This was first meet and I must say it was joy to meet a group of like-minded men and their machines. Kudos to the organizers like Samba, Somshree, Papabravo and others for pulling this off. Looking forward to the Monsoon drive. Some snaps below...

Some of you had asked me about where I stayed in Udaipur and Jaisalmer and loved it..so here it goes
Udaipur : http://mountainridge.in/ - Gentleman who used to own it was a Brit by the name of Pierce. He is an absolute treasure trove of knowledge of that area. Not sure if he is still there..but an absolutely wonderful place.
Jaisalmer: http://www.desertmoonguesthouse.com/ - A lady from New Zealand used to own and run it. Again a great place in terms of value and cleanliness.

Please note that I am in no way affialiated to these places and this is not an ad

Couple of poor-quality panoramas of the destination. The gent in red is gearhead. The two in on the right are Rishi (Delix's friend) and Dsarkar (who owns the Polo GT). The kid on the bicycle is not a member

And another after all were in place for the photography (the cars i.e.)

Monsoon clouds in the background. Fortunately it did not rain till the meet broke up which no doubt contributed to the high turnout.

View from inside himadrimondal's Thar which was perhaps the star attraction.

Guys, will it be possible to share the raw files on a shared Google Drive maybe? Or am I still in the clouds? :P

Thanks to each & everyone for making this MEGA MEET a great success. It was a super meet with super machines. There were 44 odd cars at the final point while few left early & few came in late. I forgot to get my camera today so very less contribution from my end towards the thread. & last the rain to justify our meet title.

As our official photographer for the day, eagerly waiting for samba's photographic input. Specially the "climbed the earth mover out of the KOMATSU for the perfect shot".

Must say it was a great Mega meet. The biggest in Kolkata ever. What I really liked was the disciplined driving. A kilometer long convoy smoothly moving down the road. Thanks everyone for turning up. Special thanks to Shomshree, Samba & Delix for sharing responsibilities & helping me out.

I could not take any pictures. DSLR group, please start posting some amazing pics.

Regards,

Pawan
