Hi i am Dr Satish Padmanabhan, Practicing Homoeopathy for the past 24 years in Bangalore. Passionate about driving ( definitely not city !!). Have had various cars in the past like a Fiat, Omni, Zen, Honda city and have lately been taming a beast called XUV 500.

An avid admirer of nature, I have been trekking the Himalayas regularly. I am in the prelimnary stages of planning a drive from Bangalore to Leh & Ladakh. In my quest for more knowledge about this ambitious plan, I chanced upon this community - The Automotive India and ever since have been glued to this reading thro various posts, threads etc. In fact even when i took delivery of my XUV 500, I refered to posts on Pre Delivery Inspection; Decoding the VIN etc which were very useful.

Looking forward to have useful interactions with fellow members. I would like to exchange notes with member who have done this Drive earlier or anyone in the process of planning.

Thank you for giving me a warm welcome to this family.
