Wake me up when September ends!

Knowing how much I love Radha, it would be a shame if I would not write about a milestone in my relationship with her! right?

thank you Vaishali for pointing that out!

There are so many memories that have been associated with her that I would not even know where to start and end...

  • The first time I saw her, I knew she was going to be mine
  • The extreme personification of something that a lot of people would call just a car
  • The fact that most people who know about her call her Radha too!
  • That I was using a Rs. 250 radio to listen to music for the first few months because I was totally broke after I got the car
  • That I feel the most secure when I am driving around with her
  • That she probably has one of the best audio quality that I know of... what else do you expect from a combination of Sony, JBL, and Blaupunkt?
  • That it has saved my family from an accident which would have been a nightmare in any other car
  • That she is one of the finest machines, one of the safest cars and of course one of the smartest looking cars that runs on Indian Roads
  • That she is a perfect example of what friendships should be like
  • And that she still looks as beautiful as she looked the first day I met her :)

and a lot more!

This September is a special month for me! a lot of things happened including Chai ki Dukaan celebrating 5 years, some things and thoughts moving at the personal front, and my EMIs for the car getting over! now I can start saving for the Enfield I have been eyeing for a while! :P

Speaking of cars, this weekend I drove the largest SUV I have been in, so far! A Toyota Sequoia. It was a 4.6 litre, 32 Valve V8 engine which produces a mind boggling 310 bhp@ 5400 rpm! The pictures below should tell you something about the size too!
