A long pending wish got finally fulfilled. No I did not meet any film star or sports person, neither did I buy a Ferrari nor went on a cruise. I saw a Car assembly line, a marvel created out of scratch. I always dreamt of being in a place where u look in any directions and u see nothing but cars, the same thing materialised when I visited Mahindra & Mahindra. It was like a ocean of SUV's and gleaming sedans one can say jannat for car enthusiasts. There were old, new, broken down, prototypes , all kinds of vehicles present there. The assembly line was of 'Logan', a sedan belonging to the Renault stable. I could see the effect of globalisation from the modernised assembly line as against the old style Bolero/ Scorpio line present in the same plant. The only thing I regret is not getting my hands on the car and try it out on the test track........... May Be the next time!!!!!!!!!

I Met with an Accident!!!!!!
There is always a first time for everything,the list is reduced by one........
This week started with a bang, I actually mean a BANG!!!!! in the middle of a chowk near
Poona club on a chilly morning. I was cruising at my normal speed of 30-40 kmph when this
bike came from nowhere at a high speed jumping the signal and just collided into me side
ways... For a split second before colliding I felt that i am in for a big thing, but
fortunately (thank you god) i escaped with a badly bruised and swollen left hand
only....Miracously nothing happened to my beloved bike also.
Now i can no more boast of being the safest rider and i paid for being a ardent follower of
traffic signals... I consider myself fortunate that the it was only a bike that jumped a
signal and collided with me, I get shivers even thinking what would have happened if it
would have anyhting bigger than a two wheeler...
Anyways whatever happens is for good............. Now i will be extra cautious while
negotiating a crossing, especially when i have a green signal.
Cheers and Drive safely.
