Replaced the wiper blades. Decided to go for the FIAT provided one Made in Genrmany. Costs 1234/-. The current one lasted for close to three years. The difference in price between Syndicate brand and this one is just about Rs.200. So decided to go for the tried and tested one. Thanks Ravi sir! I got a Pm from Sailer_Punter too suggesting the this route. Seems there were instances of elephant attacks between Periyapatna-Sidhapura route even during day time. Also people say that elephants come on to the road during rainy season due to leech attack. Nice idea it is. But it's pouring down there and most likely, we wont even get a chance to get out of the car. But I will see A few years back I had been to MGM beach resort on OMR and had to watch the waves from the restaurant because of heavy rains.
