    Where Linea used to bottom-scrape, XUV 500 leaps around easily. I used to drive Linea in difficult terrains with nervousness; now, I drive XUV 500 confidently. The additional power and extra torque come in handly in tackling rough roads with gradient.

    Sure; I will continue in this thread itself.

    Thank you so much for the wishes and nice words, nbvcrao. :)

    Thanks a lot for the apt title and compliments, amogh. :)

    Mr. Ravi,

    As usual, another visual treat, recollected once again.

    Thanks for the detailed information on the "bullet baba" which I heard and read more than two decades back.

    Your travelogue had inspired me to start off to Kolkata to spend time with my sister for puja holidays.

    Drove from Rajahmundry to Balasore non stop from 6 am to 11.00 pm. Had to stop due to risky road between Balasore to Kharagpur. Started from Balasore 7 am and reached Kolkata by 12.30 pm.

    I shall be driving back on Tuesday.

    Thanks a lot for the compliments and nice words, nbvcrao.

    Kindly update the road conditions from Guntur to Kolkata in the appropriate thread, which will be useful for my proposed trip to Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh, sometime in 2015.

    This time I dropped my plan visiting Leh and Ladakh due to bad weather and did a trip to Goa, I will make it to Leh next time and will plan during August.

    Thanks for the appreciation and compliments, 5u3zEr0. My erstwhile Linea drove on the world's highest motorable road in her maiden attempt, whereas my present XUV 500 could not do so. I will drive XUV 500 to Ladakh in 2015 surely! :)
