    If anything that exists in all dimension, that is water. The only thing which can be in all three different forms. Gaseous, liquid & solid. It is termed as "Gateway to hyper-dimensions in ancient culture". So that Ganga (water stream coming out of GOD SHIVA communicates what, you decide?? Ancients have coded everything decisive in pictures. God SHIVA is "perfection" here. Did they know that we will be very cosmopolitan with 1000s of languages, so instead opted this method of pictorial communication?? hehehehe..!! You decide i hardly have any idea! By that what does that "Damru" stands for;)?? They left it for everyone, who ever is interested, come & get it. We can never be that generous. They truly rose up beyond "Hate & Jealousy" which we are struggling with every second.

    Prepare to blow off your mind till this Sunday, it's a promise;). By the way hope that your car is fine now. You didn't post any outcome after your bro drove it? Pls confirm what the status now?

    @Gurjinnder: Discovery channel is lying. The record for very first use of Rockets & Gun powder was done by Chinese in 1232, in a war. Obviously they were not tying kisses & throwing rockets on each other. It spreaded later in Asia from China. The very first fight in which Mangol's used is known "Battle of Mohi". In some cases it is also claimed as "Chinese Alchemist" accidentally invented Gun-Powder in 9th century.

    Tipu Sultan just missed it by some 600 to 900 Yrs::T. Link is below for your reference:

    Can a Pulse/Rapid get serviced at a Nissan/VW service center respectively? They are almost the same cars with only some cosmetic changes separating them. It may not be feasible, but is it possible?

    They are afraid of destructive interference. It looks like VW is afraid of Skoda eating their brand value. That is why they purposefully make the skoda cars inferior by opting out some features. Lack of back wipers in elegance, chocolate brown dash in Rapid are few examples.

    Apart from the, 'brand value' concerns, can it be done from a technical point of view? They have the same engine, gearbox, suspension etc, so it must be possible. What say?

    Should be possible.

    Skoda is the adopted child of VW Only. Skoda does not have its own drivetrains. Just the brand name is theirs. A sort of a cheaper VW.

    The problem with VW is that skoda already had a bad reputation of after sales. VW itself capable of such things don't want to to be under the shadow of Skoda which will dilute the very strong marketing strategies that they have planned. Just look at the ads that followed after their entry. In fact the already existing skoda is now getting more stable with the help of VW. In future it is highly possible that they can double their networks by fusing the existing dealerships and service stations together. Almost the same logic go for Nissan and Renault. Once they are stable they can consider joint service netwoks.
