Formula 1 in India

After months of speculations,it has been confirmed a few days ago that the Formula 1 race is going to have its chapter in India this October from 28th-31st October.
More than the excitement of getting to see the cars zooming at those crazy speed,I feel proud that India will now be among a handful countries to have an F1 track. It makes me feel proud of the emerging India and it is one of the testimonies of India having arrived on the world stage just as Terminal 3 of the Delhi Airport is, which supposedly outshines most of the airports of even developed countries as per the feedback I have heard from some people who have traveled abroad quite a bit .Currently, it's the eight largest airport in the world with an aesthetic appeal which I think only a few airports would be able to match. Whenever I go there, I feel incredibly optimistic about India's future.

I have already booked the ticket for the race. In fact,I rejected my parents proposal to schedule a vacation during that time as it is holiday period. This debut F1 race is going to be a momentous occasion for India and I wanna be a part of it! Metallica is going to be there so that's another reason for me not to miss the event. Zooming off!

Thanks Mannu-Bhai.
I feel sad to miss the first-ever Indian Grand Prix.
Just heard from a friend at Jaypee group that the ‘Jaypee Greens Sports City’ will be an awesome place in another next few years when complete construction work will be taken place.

Just a correction to your post: Delhi Airport is not eight largest airport in the world. Its Terminal-3 is eight largest (as per floor-area) among all Airport-terminals.

But I will try to attend at Suzuka race-track for Japan Grand prix.
@ Mann,
You're lucky to get this opportunity! Have fun at the race and take pics!

@ Chiru,
Long time no see and hear! Hope all is going well.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Little Miss
