Dhiyanesh is the prime mover of this weblog and is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, and bikes doesn't fascinate him much. So, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He is instinctively seduced to sedans of 90s era, and his dream garage will surely have a W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. He snogs his 1999 Fiat Siena everyday lovingly, and drives a Ford Fiesta. He maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. And finds it strange to have written this in third person!
