Amazing travelogue.

It is always wonderful to catch up with friends, relatives, and new people, and what can be better icing on the cake if it can happen with a road trip?

It is a memory for a lifetime, to be relished and relived for years to come

Wow this was a great read, and congratulations on this amazing feat. While folks only think of doing epic trips, you have been there done that, along with your family. Your kids are lucky to have such enthusiastic parents, eager for such adventures.

Loved reading the travelogue!

This travelogue was a delight to read. Beautiful captures. Sometimes, just pictures of scenery isnít needed. Instead, clicks of small halt, routes, candid clicks while on move shows the mood better. Thanks for sharing the beautiful travelogue. Great to see TUV300 munching miles. I suppose it would have shined in not so perfect patches especially due to its robust chassis and built along with good GC.

Congratulations on your 10k-long road trip. One can only imagine achieving such long distances.

This seems to be one of the longest travelogues, but worth the time spent reading and reading such long travelogues before my sleep helps me feel relaxed. Maybe even I should consider writing a travelogue of Chennai - Pondicherry - Chennai Trip. While the route is much more frequent for visitors, I have not decided to write it now. Maybe I will write one in the near future

Thanks for sharing!

Wow, what a trip, what an experience.

Thanks for sharing.

Must mention here, the Real Compact SUV that the TUV/Bolero Neo is, too underrated.

Hope Mahindra now passes on the FSD dampers and Watts Link to this vehicle from the Scorpio N. It already has MLD. BLD would be great addition too.

And a TC Automatic.

That would finalize the vehicle for myself.

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, the trip helped our kids to see new places and meet people. Now if they read something about a place we covered, they can correlate. They will be in touch with friends they made in this trip.

It is one thing to do such an epic trip and totally a different thing to put that experience together in words and photos. You did both with elan.

When in Shillong and Kolkata, unfortunately we could not communicate in time.
Thank you for your kind words. We will definitely meet in the near future. Our daughter is now asking when we can go for Capital Connect like you did

Thank you. Yes, certainly it helps in family bonding. We spend long time in the car as well as in the same hotel room, we talk and share more

Thank you. Yes, it was once in a lifetime trip. Fond memories for all of us. We covered some places, which would otherwise have not been possible, if we used other modes of transport.

Thank you. While we were on road, photographs were taken by my wife and son. Son learnt using DSLR in this trip only. TUV300 performed well and handled some bad sections of road in Assam and West Bengal without much trouble.

Thank you. This is in fact my first travelogue. You should definitely consider writing your experiences. Best wishes.

Thank you. I agree. I missed cruise control too. If they put all these in Bolero Neo, I am game to consider as my next vehicle.

Some observations which I would like to mention.

1. You were lucky indeed to escape a falling tree branch. Please share the method used to fix the dent and possibly any link of related video.

2. Lane discipline in Shillong...when would others emulate it. Truly inspiring.

3. Manual rickshaw. The only time I actually saw that was pulled by Balraj Sahni in Do Bigha Zameen. Long time ago MGR donated cycle rickshaws to all those manual pullers in TN. I think some noble soul should initiate similar action here. We should start a separate thread to invite views on this.
