Default family trip to south rajasthan

prologue

With kids vacationed postponed to 4 th jan cos of fog i decided to plan our winter vacation during that time .it was a tie between manali and rajasthan .since manali was done we ( I) opted for rajasthan . we being members of club mahindra decided to go to kumbhalgarh where they have a resort.so called them .we couldnt get a studio apartment as it was all booked but luckily we got a luxury tent from 6 th jan to 9 th jan. so with that all finalised i decided to get a new car especially diesel .listed punto ,figo and i20 crdi as my choices.i wanted the top spec as abs and airbags were mandatory for me as well as my wife.
i20 crdi was 7.10 lac exshowroom with absolutely no discount plus i didnt like the eps arcade style light steering.
figo is a nice car liked the ride but it had waiting .and less features.
punto had the best ride plus i am biased .family also liked the ride of punto .punto 90 hp exshowroom was 6.86 lack .and discounts were offered .plus bossa nova white was available so booked and applied loan and took delivery 2 days later on 24 th dec .what a christmas gift.

now the quest for ice began as punto has bad speakers . so ordered a genesis high low converter , id chameleon 6.5 components, id v3 d4 sub , bull wiring kit. will use my old jbl amp gto 1004, damping and sub box from chandigarh (thanks abhishek for this).
now a spanner was thrown in my plans .as my courier got stuck at ambala as they wanted as affadavit that the courier was for my personal use and not sale so decided to go to amabala and collect it myself . reached amabala near manji sahib gurudwara and collected the stuff and then sub box and damping from abhi in chd..
installation done with help of monty ( another guy who deserved my whole hearted thanks)and now everything was ready. another thanks to gunbir sir for the audio stuff

5th jan

as much as we planned for a early start with all the packing and getting the kids ready the best we could do was start at 10 am from ludhiana .took the ludhiana -malerkotla-sangrur-patran-tohana -hisar route.the route was ok. from hisar we took the road to churu- fatehpur. from fatehpur we went to salasar well it was not planned but we accidently went on the road to laxmangarh .and then took a road for sujangarh and salasar was enroute .there is a very famous hanuman temple in salasar visted that and then left for sujangarh.

clubmahindra guy told us to go to nagaur and then ajmer but from ladrun there is a highway for kishengarh .took that and reached at 8.30 pm in ajmer .had our dinner at khwaja dhaba opposite railway station and then took a room . not much pics of the day .but here are those

The ludhiana -malerkotla-sangrur-patran-tohana -hisar - churu - fatehpur - salasar - sujangarh route - you mention it is OK, is it fully 2-laned? Are there bypasses for the towns, including Hissar? Facilities are good?
