By this time you would have figured out that auto enthusiasm to the level of fanaticism is a prerequisite to be a part of team IAB. And I'm no exception! As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! Since then automobiles became the love of my life and I grew up admiring anything and everything that purrs and has wheels. My quest to be updated with whatever happens in the glorious world of automobiles naturally landed me at IAB. So here I'm, as a petrolhead by birth, mechanical engineer by education and an automotive journalist by profession!
