hah. i actually went through a patch around 100 meters long that was well... not road. not kaccha rasta. basically off-road muddy mini hills. something that only an SUV owners would dare to cross. my linea took quite a beating at the bottom during that patch. i am yet to get the bottom of the car checked. but there was major contact and god knows how much damage my car suffered.

Really sorry to hear about that bro :( Didn't know the ground clearance of Linea was much lower than that of an Indigo. Maybe the stretch got worse now instead of getting better. I went after Monsoon and the stretch was muddy then as well, but not impossible to negotiate in a normal car if you took the correct line. I actually waited for couple of local jeeps to pass and just followed them after seeing what line they took. So almost 3 years & they have not bothered to complete this incomplete stretch, pretty pathetic i would say for a road that is called a NH.

As far as the damage to your car, as long as you didn't hit the axle on a boulder or something, little minor scrapping of the bottom should not be too much of a concern. Had you hit the axle you would have certainly noticed some weird noises coming from you car by now!

hehe. i talked to some guy in a suv with red lights there. he was crossing it too. he said that the patch was soon going to be fixed. but i guess they have not fixed it for so many years. why would they bother to fix it now :D in any case, for me it was like driving over a speedbreaker vertically. i think i did pretty good trying to keep one side on the elevated side and other on the deeper side. however going over some of the bumps was pretty nasty. i guess the damage was mostly scrapping and i did not break anything. car has been doing fine. have not noticed any weird noise coming from the bottom. i would get it checked whenever i go to the tata service station next. :)

well you just need to take permissions from the authorized body. as mentioned before, there was a television show shot at night at this fort with permissions.

What point will he prove if he goes in sunlight with his entire cavalry

How do you know that he is not going to stay after dark?

looks like a delayed attempt to promote talaash :\

He's smarter than that.

He might be looking for the laash there

You're funny. :D
