Thank you all, for being with us, every day, on this amazing journey.
Signing off with one of my favorites from The Beatles..
You say yes, I say no.
Hi Sandip and team,
Thanks a lot for all the hard work you guys did for creating and running TGDC wonderfully. It was a great journey and I am glad I followed it from beginning to end.
From the time this contest started, it had kept me hooked. I am going to miss this entire buzz from tomorrow. I guess I need to find something else now to keep me hooked.
Looking forward to the winner announcements!!
Cheers and thanks again,

Congratulations for this great achievement to all the Team members of TDGC. I know when this was started many sceptics were around saying this wouldn’t even pull through till end. But, the way the entire GDC snowballed into the forefront, would not have been possible without incredible amount of efforts put in by this team.
Well Done Team-DGC….
A Big thanks! for this opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, learn something about blogging ! You pulled few FROGS out of the well ! ..you kept us hooked to the screen with immense patience! ....never ever got irritated, your replies were the accurate example of -power to pitch! ....You kept us amused while you were sleeping and kept us occupied even when you were away ......This blogger had the symptoms of Swine Flu but you never accepted the Mask i sent you !

It’s sad that TGDC is coming to an end today. My heart refuses to say good bye. My browser refuses to stay away from TGDC’s url. My mind every now and then wants to hit TGDC.
Participating in TGDC has not only helped us make good friends, but has re-kindled that lost spirit of travel and adventure.
From all the lovely participating couples to the top 100 applicants to the impressive top 12 ones to the lucky top 3, TGDC has inspired, ignited and delighted us all.
There is a quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose. Under the charismatic leadership of Sandip, Team GDC has has done a brilliant job.
Lets stand up for the champions. Lets salute Experience Commerce. Sandip, you’re da man!

I am here again with a suggestion.
Thanks team EC and team TGDC for bringing out such good contest.
Also keeping the activities interesting so that we kept glued to the blog and contestants updates throughout 10 days.
I also learned a lot from interacting with others via excvhanges through blog and facebook.
The blogging aspect of this challenge was one of the main reasons we decided to participate and we were fortunate enough to meet Sandip, Rajeev, Rajesh, Jayshree and many more of the team in person in Mumbai earlier this month.

Kudos to the entire team for giving us one of the most innovative and well managed contests in our times!
Here’s to the future and more things to come from this team…...Cheers!
TGDC, definitely was a great platform for travel-freaks, photographers and people living life!
TGDC was one platform that got me around 100 new friends that are like minded. My humble thanks for everyone for being part of my life’s journey. Hope to see you guys in person as time allows.
TGDC was a platform of emotions. Happiness, anger, sadness, cheer, pain, relief, and several more.
TGDC was one damn good marketing campaign.
TGDC was one team work that proved “unity” among everyone to keep it going. Technical teams doing their best to get over the hurdles while every one else in the team (read contestants, followers, fans) holding their faith and eagerly waiting for the next surprize.
TGDC was one awesome jury. So experienced in their skills that it was an honor for me to be just part of the the entire event.
TGDC was one million blast that rules the heart and minds of several Indians.
TGDC was the one who united us one and made us one proud dot in the big picture.
TGDC inspired several to pick up their cameras again, puff the dust off their bikes and cars, go for the road again, explore more and share with others.
TGDC made everyone gain, this way or that.
TGDC will be in our hearts to remember as everyone moves on in their lives with more enthusiasm than ever.
TGDC made me tolerate “hai alla, jab dekho TGDC. Iske baad tumhara kya hoga?”
Thanks TGDC, Jury, Mitsubishi and awesome Sandip and team.

My hats off to team TGDC for pulling off this great challenge. I guess they were then one facing the C in TGDC. All the best to you all…
I second the suggestion by Mr Shanmuga that we should try and keep this site alive and convert into a Cedia fan / travel freak blogging site.
May be this itself can become a basis for TGDC-2. Let people keep blogging onto their application pages and make the quality of blogs a criteria for next years wild card entries. This may give all us Cedia fans some reason to keep coming back to this site and keep contributing.
Hope this saga continues…

Hi Sandip and team,
You guys rock!!!
I was away due to some personal exigency and logged just in time today. Thanks for giving an oppurtunity to know so many like minded couples who share passion for driving.
I would connect back with lots of travelogues from my Rally, till then all the best! and keep in touch.
Thanks and warm regards,
