    If You can move Pune from E to B, you can get a much better route overall.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    In Surat you can stay at my place.
    The house is big enough for 4-5 guests, if you guys can manage to sleep on a quilt i.e.
    There's parking for a 100bikes available. I live in a pretty spreadout Society with free street parking.

    Thats the catch.
    Surat is an industrial city. Nothing but tiny tiny congested mills with a huge smoking chinmey, murky hot water let out on the muddy potholed roads and thousands of workers chewing pan,walking about in their underwear.

    The residential sites are caste into a corner and the happening places here are nothing but the window-shopper-fed-up malls and highly crowded chat shops. The food? Dont even get me started.

    Its a totally hardworking city but work is all it does. Needless to say people here are rich. Filthy rich. Which is why you'll see people riding Intruders, Monsters, RSv4 and Gixxers. The underwear rule applies. Okay boxers if not underwear.

    And yeah, any goodlooking chick you see here...she's a tourist.

    Please join in on our way if possible.
