It was 1996 and I was doing my industrial training at Crest Communications. One day as I walked out of the doors a massive machine sauntered in and made the compound look small. I couldn't believe a car could be that big. That Pajero belonged to Shyam Rammanna the owner of Crest.Soon there was a shoot for Hero Cycles aqnd we were shooting with Sanjay Dutt. I was told to hold his shirt and told,"Now you've been touched by a star!". I enjoyed the shoot and Shyam directed the ad. The shoot ended late and Shyam offered to drive a bunch of us back to the office. So I sat in the back seat with some colleagues. Shyam likes speed. It was 4 am in the morning and there was hardly any traffic on Marine Drive. Ofcourse he hit the gas. My colleagues cap flew out of the open window and we all laughed!
Fifteen years later I'm driving the same car and I love it! God is kind.
