    I have two queries, shams:

    1. Your return journey was on NH 5/4 via Bhubaneshwar/Visakhapatnam/Chennai. Out of the two routes, which was the better one?

    2. I heard that some dreaded entry tax was being collected at Odisha check post from the owners of non-Odisha registered private vehicles while entering Odisha. Did you encounter any such tax collection in Odisha?

    I am eagerly waiting for the completion of your travelogue containing the details of your return journey.:)

    O my my..:mischievous!! That NH-7 looks like some pathway to Heaven. Too bad & unlucky, we don't have such a stretch like that here. You have to go at least 300 KMs either side of Delhi to experience something like that. May be Noida Expressway but still no where close to it. There is lot of traffic on it too.
    I have hardly driven my 90 HP other than some local state-highways. There is too much of regular traffic & you see everything but powerful speedy cars. A speed breaker is always in vision:A, don't know why people are so much obsessed with this thing in Haryana??Lucky you, all i can say!
    I think easily best stretch i have seen till date anywhere in India. Earlier favorite was Mumbai Pune expressway. You give such a road to me, will be back with all the hidden secrets of Punto/Linea's unfolded with in an Hr.:helmet.
    Had gone through pics only & will read the detailed travelogue tomorrow. Nice post, Keep rocking!

    NH-7 and NH-4 are one of the best things that have happened to motoring enthusiasts..
    Thankfully we bangaloreans are at least happy we have something to cheer, very close by.

    Shams, This is a wonderful travel report.. Loved reading every line ....
    AMAZING :)
