And these differences make us perfect couple and passionate about life and its hidden surprises.

My name is hemant and I was born in lake homes, a beautiful city named nainital and Priti is delhite. So a kind of a match between heights and planes. We are working in different sectors of the economy. I’m in finance and she is in administration. I chose Priti to be a partner of this driving challenge because where I see the deadend than she knocks the bell…tring tring look carefully there is a crossroad ahead. We compliment each other as a friend and a well wisher. So wish us a luck to be a part of it. "Life is a journey... its always better if you select your own way and drive it through" This gives a granular view of our passion and zeal of exploring the new ventures in our life.

Everytime we travel by car, its a new experience. we are full prepared and ready for this challenge as our passion is travelling, we have got 4 cars. one is in vadodara, one is with my elder son in noida, and the other 2 are in chandigarh. Many times our all 4 cars also have a get together party. Our Hobbies besides travelling are spending time with our family n friends, trecking, going to and discovering new places, playing cards, enjoying good food, watchin TV.
Hello everyone, I am Sangram Singh Purohit aged 22 from Mumbai. I am a Graduate and also a STUDENT PILOT. I love to Travel, Swim, Cycle, Drive, Fly ,Trek Mountains & simply hang out with friends. Unlike everyone else my partner is not my wife....nor my girl friend....but what sets us apart is that we share a relationship which is way deeper than that......she is my "MOTHER"!! She (Rajshree Purohit) is a Housewife from Mumbai. She is quite passionate about Traveling, listening to music, cooking and is a hardcore nature lover. I think that we deserve your votes and responses because we are the only MOTHER-AND-SON couple participating in the challenge. So what really separates us from the rest is that we are a refreshing blend of the experience and youthful craziness with a common passion for traveling

“A journey is said to be complete when the crests and troughs of the path are enjoyed equally…leading to peace, accomplishment and contentment”…THIS IS A JOURNEY CALLED “LIFE”…a life which we both, as partners, believe in and live accordingly, in order to attain self actualization and growth.

Besides this, we also ventured into the hospitality industry and run a restaurant & lounge in Faridabad.

We take this initiative as something which has brought a lot of enthusiasm in us and we look forward to offering our best performance.
Oh, that’s a big list, literally, as we have been traveling from our college times…and same passion continues even now…to go in little detail, my father used to work as a bank officer and as a standard rule, every 2nd / 3rd year we had to relocate due to transfer. So moving places was a little natural act. We are very choosy about our travel plan & places as we don’t enjoy being in the crowd & so we don’t find any point in going to a very popular crowded picnic spot, instead we prefer to walk on un-unbeaten path. We prefer to go for home-stay so that we can experience the true taste of the land. Generally we choose a place like Virgin Island, unseen forest part or an un-conquered mountain, but it’s not always possible, but in future we have a deep desire & wish to attempt Mt.Everest. Our one more un-fulfilled dream is to tour whole of India on a bike or car. It really amuses to have a salty tea in Leh, we love have ‘uttu' in Kerala, (ever had a ‘dosa’ with a boiled banana ?) we enjoy ‘appam’ in Chennai, spicy Andhra rice meals in AP, ‘daal-baati’ in Rajasthan, ‘Malai Lassi’ in Punjab, alloo ka parotha in Haryana, and an awesome ‘paav-bhaaji’& ‘vada-pav’in ‘amchi Mumbai’ need not to say about our own jowar roti with green salad. It’s getting little difficult to get reminded all these tasty food. So I’ll stop food matter. We have traveled mostly on bike & car, that includes a bike trip to Ladakh, whole of South India. Bangalore to Mumbai, Bangalore to Hyderabad, etc., Even though we prefer bike over car, for its sheer open air experience, from past 7 years, we are also using cars for long routes. However, any mode of transport is OK as long as it provides an opportunity to see new places, meet new people, taste new food & enjoy new culture. We hope, our travel list is big enough to be presented in this prestigious platform…complete details can be seen at www.praful.in Some of the places we have traveled… Kanyakumari to Kashmir, Rajasthan to Calcutta & Orissa, Cochin to Konkan & Goa, Bangalore to Pune & Bombay (Mumbai), Aurangabad, Ajanta, Ellora, Shiradi, Mysore, Madikeri, Mangalore, Wayanad, Kodai, Hogenkkal, Hyderabad, Mantralyam, Shiradi, Kullu, Manaali, Himachal, Old Delhi, Agra, Mathura, whole of major Karnataka like, Chickmagaluru, Belur, Halebeedu, Hampi, Alamatti, Gokak Falls, .Jog Falls, Abbe, Talakaveri, Bhagamandal, Kolluru, Surthkal, Mangalore, Honnavar, Malpe, Moodbidre, Gokarna, Mundagod, Kushalnagar, Belgaum, Savandurga, Amboli Ghat, Vajrapoha, Doodh Sagar, Doodh Ganga, .Teerthahalli, Kolar, Hesrghatta, Mekedaatu, Talakkadu, Mysore & around, Balamuri & Edamuri, and my wife all of North India including North-Eastern Part of India that’s called “Land of 7 Sisters” In my case it’s true to say “Many more... As they say, “A picture speaks thousand words” we request all to have a look at our 5 year old exclusive travel / blog website www.praful.in Hi, this is Praful & Geeta, from Belgaum - Karnataka, now settled in 'Namma' Bengaluru for professional reasons :) I am an Electronics Engineer by profession and work as a consultant. I am passionate about Gadgets, Travel / Driving, Adventure Sports & about Nature. I am lucky to be in a profession which is my passion too…Thankfully my job provides many new opportunity to meet new people and make friends. About Geeta, my wife, she is a wonderful person, who share and compliment many of my taste. Previously she was working & now she is enjoying her life as a home maker. Her interest towards Literature, Traveling & Travel Documentation helps us a lot to maintain & update our very own travelogue…www.praful.in… Her additional skill of mass communication is a big quality, and helps us in mixing with a verity of people. We both share common interest which help us travel through a journey called ‘Life’, I am little introvert & prefer to be silent where as she is more bubbly & spontaneous with new friends. The passion for travel for both of has taught to speak as many as 15 languages together. Not a big number but we have plenty of time to learn many more languages. This ability to speak multiple languages eases the anxiety of traveling to new place. I am good at photography she compliments that quality with very meaningful & witty captions & comments on each & every photograph, thus creating an attractive travelogue together, at www.praful.in There goes a saying, ”Some times, Journey is more important than Destination” in our case this applies cent percent true, as we love this journey called life, for us being together, making & sharing the good memories are most important than the destination !!!

Well…to start with I’m Rakhee based out of Delhi and running my own HR firm…grew up being in love with sports and played several sports like badminton, TT, Squash, chess etc.....and the most important of all...Cricket!!..(have spent my larger part of life in it...I was among the lucky World Cup probables of the National Indian team)... Apart from this, I have a unique hobby from which I derive a lot of happiness that is talking to old people….. and ofcourse no need to mention travelling (that’s why we all r here...) Unlike, others in this contest, my partner is someone whom I have been living since childhood (my father)… a true incarnation of humanity and dynamism and the world’s best and most lovable. We have chosen each other coz we complement each other in every task… “Soul mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you”… This quote exactly deserves to imply on our relations although it should be understood in a different context of daughter and father relationship. His ever existing support always bring out the best in me… can fuel the fire of positivity and energy in anyone although he is 63 at his age. Now, the very obvious question is… why are we here and what will you get out of voting us or taking us to win this contest...?? The answer lies in my travel plan…but precisely, you will get something so soothing so revitalizing through our blogs & captured photographs…that whether you will have a bad day or a good day…reading our blogs or seeing photographs…will guarantee u immense ecstasy. Beside this our objective will be projecting the true picture of the real India which many of us have never been to…lack of education, paucity of electricity, still for many of the children of these villages…car would be an object of imagination…so we’ll take the Cedia there and make them sit in it and capture their innocent smile which can certainly bring simile on your face also. It could be an eye opener for few of them and after seeing many of us may come forward to take the lead role in transforming India’s picture from dust to glory. I am sure you would love to be part of our journey, will vote for us….thanks in advance and follow us till our win.
Myself, Abhi and my sister, Megha, we come from a business family and both look after the family business. We both are travel freaks and our preferred mode of transport is a car always no matter how long the journey is. I am very passionate for everything related to Automobiles since childhood and also got into photography since last 3 years (Do check my Orkut album and pics at flickr). Megha too is very fond of driving and we both are comfortable being on road day in and day out. I am B.com graduate and done Masters in Business Admin specialized in Marketing. Megha is B.Sc grad and did her Masters in Geographical Information System. I am also active member of Automotive Forum named www.theautomotiveindiaforums.com where my id is abhi_qpotsiavs.
This is VJ & Ash from Bangalore. We both are working in separate domains. We are married for 2 years. We are known to each other for years & finally got married by god’s grace with the blessing of our parents. We are here because of our fascination towards travel. We are more inclined towards nature, specifically more to do with wildlife & beaches. We have a passion to travel very often to different places to explore the beauty of nature. I’m a person who loves to visit historic places & realize the life lived by our ancestors. I still cannot imagine the royal life lived by the rajas. Driving is one of my obsessions & loves to drive long distances without looking at the speedometer. I’m craze on cars. Lancer is one of my favorite cars. I almost went ahead to buy this car even though I was not in a state to afford it. However, at the last minute, the deal went out of my hand because of short of money. I still have the dream to own a Mitsubishi. May be, if god wishes I would own a Cedia & Pajero (Cedia for my wife & Pajero for me ) .Believe me, Pajero is an all terrain vehicle with a massive look. It features are incomparable. I dream about it all the time. This would says how craze I’m on cars. My adrenaline pump lives for cars. My wife has always been my best companion in life. She loves hill stations & prefers to stay in a cool place. She is a good cook too. You can make out that looking at me. Her driving is more of class with steadiness. However, she always enjoys sitting beside me. We have good time when I hold the steering, whereas she does the talk. We both are allergic to vegetarian food. Hence we avoid them at the most. I’m more interested in photography & love to shoot photos till I get the message “Memory is full” in my camera. Vehicle modification is another task which I love to do. I can go on more about us, but has been asked to be brief. Hence I’m limiting myself

Jumping off the Swiss Alps, Cycling in the small towns of Lake District, Water Sports in Goa, Skiing in Narkanda, Bungee Jumping in Phuket, Rallying from Delhi to Shimla... Our life’s pallete would be so bland without these! "I take my life quarter of a mile at a time" Lance Armstrong.

I need to be connected 24/7...not just for business but also for networking, connecting with friends who make my life sooo much more fun!! And now about someone who completes my life..who puts the loose strings together- my wife Swati. A complete media freak, She has a Masters Degree in Advertsing and Public Relations with successful stints at The Times of India & DNA in her fold. What breathing is to animals, photography is to her? She has to carry 3 memory cards for a week long trip. I admire her for how much work she gets done, even while being on Facebook, Orkut, Indiatimes at the same time. She is a great driver (though not as good as me !).

Aadil is the essence of overconfidence! Fast food and fast cars are his instant gratification. At 26, pursuing his Ph.D, Aadil is an entrepreneur running two start-up ventures. He calls himself speculation, adventure and the spirit of pursuit. Saniya though calls Aadil an incorrigible nincompoop. Saniya got married to Aadil in April 2009. She loves him, adores him and yet every now and then growls, browls and fouls at him. Her smile tells it all - charming, rendezvous and delightful company - thats Saniya for you. She loves heading out on long drives and can dance till world ends. Aadil on the other hand, says he can eat till the world ends! Aadil and Saniya are here to have a whale of a time driving the Mitsubishi Cedia and winning this competition. They think this is their idea of a perfect romantic getaway!

Namrata and Joseph, Bombay-ite and Hyderabadi, classmates from Indore, now working in Chennai and Pune implore all you interesting, smart, cute and sexy people reading this to please, pleeez vote for us! Hmm... but who are we? Well.. we got acquainted during our first few days at IIM Indore, group projects and common interests in photography, writing and marketing turned us into close friends and a great team. Fresh out of college, one was thrown into the dust bowls of U.P. while the other pitched a tent in the jungles of M.P. But sneaky trainees that we were, we took full advantage of the available resources to explore these states. Whether the pine trees of Almora or the ruins of Khajuraho, a Bhojpuri film shoot or some gun-laden, mustachioed dudes in the Chambal areas of Bhind - our travels always had added flavor! Of course we posted detailed accounts and pics of our humble adventures to all of our friends - not many jobs allow you to work in jeans & sneakers, expect you to travel extensively and work according to your own timetable afterall! So what happens next. Well desk-bound that we are now, and missing the luxury of the company provided car, we have set our sights a little higher. One of us already owns a Mitsubishi Cedia, the other is secretly envious. So this journey apart from an opportunity to catch up with one another, will be an unsupervised test drive for one ;) while the other gets to show off for a loooong 10 days! :P Am ending with some statutory information on us - we love travelling & meeting new people, seeing new places, we take any and EVERY opportunity to cut work and travel. One lives by the lens and sees the world as a splash of colors, frames, contrast, light and angles, the other lives by the word, is overly sensitive to bad grammar & has taken a while to adjust to the cruel shrtning of wrds by sms & d www. One has been featured many a time on Page 3 of Chennai's newspapers while the other wishes that his photos would one day feature on the Page 1 of National Geographic. One works with a strategic design house now, the other works with an FMCG conglomerate and helps market and sell.. what else... pens and pencils. :) Regards, Namrata P.S. You are invited to attempt a match-the-following based on the above mentioned information :)
A Big Shoutout to all from Arush & Sarika! We are both from the Automotive Industry with an immense craving for Driving & Adventure.

We literally live on cars for both profession and recreation and love to travel all over for our little escapades. So yeah, we met while traversing rally routes across the countryside, fell in love and eventually got married!

Hello every one, this is Vaibhav and Shweta Nagar, from the world’s most beautiful city, the city of lakes and gardens UDAIPUR. A simple , but truly professional person from hospitality services I am Vaibhav Nagar working as Front Office Manager in the best Boutique Hotel in India & Asia "DEVIGARH". My partner to support and accompany me is my wife Shweta Nagar who is a dietitian by profession, enjoys taking up new challenges in life. We know each other from last 2 years and have been married now for 1.5 years. These years have been really very beautiful were like a dream which is still on. I love driving, swimming, visiting different -2 temples in India and taking pictures but more of my family. Shweta is a great dancer, a good singer a great cook, loves long drives. We both love to keep lots of pets presently having a female Labrador, a male German Shepard and a male Golden Retriever, with 03 cates earlier. We both love traveling to new places though since our marriage we have not been to lots of new places given short breaks to our mechanical life to soak our souls in some peace on a holiday. As we have a huge friends network, with which we keep on enjoying may it be a pot dinner with just a few of us or a rain dance party with lots, we both take life as it comes, we plan a little for future and believe to live the present. We are quite different to each other at the same time we have lots of things i n common. Whenever we have any difference of opinion believe me both of us would put in our best to convince the other and ultimately end up with a third view. Weather we work- we pray, we fight - we love, we eat-we laugh, what ever we do it just helps to make our bond stronger.
Amit Singh ( read: the tranquility of the Himalayas) Jasleen Chopra (read: the effervescence of the Ganges) In the little journey of knowing us better that we are about to take you through, we hope to give you a reason to hook on to us. An economist in the usage of words, oxymoronic in his scribbles, an anarchist when it comes to faith, someone with a contagious determination and willing to dive into the sea of thoughts at any given point...this is Amit. This Dehradun guy gets super kicked to see new places. With a keen interest in photography & observations he always seems to have a new muse. Travel albeit has remained a constant. Jasleen.....a chatterbox, is happy with whatever comes her way. Driven purely by impulse, sees beauty in most everything, loves to meet varied people & wants to seek new spiritual planes. This Shimla girl knows the world better than she knows herself, has tried different forms of meditation & feels travel works the best for her. Not the most perfect match to be, but bound together by LOVE & WANDERLUST. An urge to explore the world & the ability of seeing the same landscape with a different perspective, more than make up for any imperfections. Brought together by fate on the campus of a design institute and the trails of madness led to a decade of friendship before getting into the eternal vows of marriage. Amit , the design head of Spykar Jeans & Jasleen a senior designer at Globus Stores, both making a life together in Bombay now for about eight years. Always taking short trips here and there, less to break away from the job more to explore & get inspired by small nuances- visual, culinary & cultural.

"Zinaida! You, me. Mitsubishi! 3000kms. 4 days to go." Roohshad tells me at 01.28AM, Saturday. Roohshad is primarily an adventurer, a (ridiculously brilliant) photographer, artist and sometimes human. Based in Bangalore, he's the centre of attention, and a big brat! I'm a DJ, a partner in Goa's biggest nightlife firm, a writer (and an angel of the lord). When not being awesome, I sing, play the Piano and drive better than your better than average man. Appropriately, I'm born an based in Goa. Between the two of us, we've traveled most of this lovely planet and eagerly await the technology to cover the next. We are the right mix of all the wrong things. When placed on 4 wheels and powered by a nice engine, the likelihood of drama is compounded.

Ajay and Purnima are both Delhi-ite. Ajay (me) is an inspiring entrepreneur in real estate and Purnima is pursuing MBA. Both of us make a great team together. We shared a very great time together by now and in this time we found out that we have many things in common. She has a passion (to die for) for travelling, driving, adventure sports and photography and so do I. We’re always ready to do anything to get a long drive or a jaunt on any weekend. On account of general likings, we like same music, same cars, same travel destinations (though she hasn’t travelled much), same books, same TV shows, same coffee, same cake flavors, same cuisines, talking nonsense endlessly (sometimes), long drives for just a chai ki chuski or for hot Parathas and many other things. Our thinking level is also quite same. I can bet she will be a successful entrepreneur, as soon as she completes her MBA. Both of us are visual thinkers and good planners. We planned to set up many businesses in future if everything goes right…... However with all these similarities we do have many differences. In fact this list is bigger than likings. She is quite stylish, sweet, charming, emotional, passionate, happy go lucky, talkative (chatterbox), anxious and a little pampered girl. On the other hand I am a simple, practical, patient, rational, little bit arrogant and closed (only for certain people). She believes in helping others first, so she bothers for everyone she knows. However I prefer isolation and prefer to fulfill my needs first and then think of others. We never have same opinion on any given issue. Yes one more special point in the differences list is that she has a great passion for bikes and she even rides one but I prefer cars than bikes…… These are quite a lot differences but if you see these differences collectively for both of us, then you’ll find that we both complement each other. What she lacks in, is fulfilled by me and what I lack in, is fulfilled by her. That’s why in the starting I said that we make a great team. Please go through our profile further to know more about our passions and to know us better.

We are Poonam and Rishi Kapoor from the northern part of beautiful India. Rishi is a technocrat and Poonam, a homemaker. We love cars and own 3 of them with 322 horses (BHP)! And as they say, “getting there is half the fun”, travelling is our passion and we love to drive. We have driven extensively around North India, mapped Uttrakhand, Uttranchal, J&K and Himachal and in the West we have chartered the famous Ghats, hills, deserts and coastline of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan. We plan to discover the charming South and the evergreen North-East in the coming times ........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Every month or so, breaking away from Rishi’s foreign trips and endless board meetings, we try to drive away on unexplored roads leading to places where we discover India and our true selves. This is soul searching for Poonam and opportunity for Rishi to play with his latest gadgets and spend time with kids, who share all our passion. Both boys share their father’s love for cars; they sleep with tiny die-cast models of their favourite cars under their pillows!! We truly are a family .......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Rishi is a budding amateur photographer with the latest Canon Rebel XSi –Come, see our photos in Flickr. His gadgets and several telephoto lenses take up most of the space in cars during our expeditions. Poonam is re-discovering her talent for writing and digital authoring .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Rishi is also founder of an online auto enthusiast club with over 400 members and thousands of message archives. Poonam shares his passion and worked hard for the first “Club Annual Meet” at Goa, where car lovers got together from across India to share their enthusiasm for cars over 3 days ............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

We are a compassionate and fun-loving couple from Delhi, and have lived/traveled across the world. We've done skydiving, skiing and zipping; rafting, scuba diving and backpacking; marathon, trekking and cycling > we like living on the edge! Our alter egos(!) have MBAs from FMS and INSEAD, and work in Airtel with the CFO & as a Vice President in PE. A loves cars, H racing bikes! A drives zig-zag, H straight line. But both are nuts about The Great Driving Challenge and want to be in the finals to have a crack at driving Cedia for 10 days and win the Pole Position (Prize!) So please, please vote for us!
