      The elephant is due to Insurance renewal in 2 weeks. My current Insurer has been HDFC ergo which gave a good quote last time. However, this year they seem to have removed RSA. Can anyone suggest good Insurer with RSA?

      Insurance renewal this time has started getting on my nerevs. After not having any satisfactory response from Bajaj Alianz, I called them up to discuss about renewal. Unfortunately after wasting my 20 mins they gave me the same robotic quotation as shown on their website with no will to customize as per my needs. It seems AI is taking over after all.



      Now What remains is to go ahed with HDFC (no RSA) but at-least preserve some IDV. I have finally sent a mail to grievance after wasting a week to and fro and not able to get proper response from lower level customer care agents.

      So I finally ended up renewing the Insurance.

      My last insurer was HDFC ergo, which had a premium of 13.7k at zero NCB and an IDV of 2.15L

      My new insurer is Bajaj Alianz, which Even after 20% NCB has a premium of 14.5k. On the upside, I have RSA and Massive IDV of 4.38L.

      The Elephant was able to stretch its legs once again after resting about 2~3 months.

      We were greeted by dense fog from the crack of dawn to almost 8.30. So I used my good old trick of following a humble truck at a distance till visibility improved. Only after 9 AM the fog became a non issue.

      Beast also rolled over an interesting ODO during the trip.

      Everything is Fine with the Elephant. Very slowly inching towards 1L Kms.

      Got an TF-TF Average of 12.8 KMPL, which is Pleasant considering it was a Truly combined run of Ghats, Traffic Jams, City use, Idling (for Small daughter) etc etc.

      Started the Elephant today and drove a short distance to buy Essentials. It seems the Beast has left the den after a slumber of about 40 days. No issues to Report as such. All systems working as Expected.

      Engaged 2L for a while to get that T-Case Oil circulated and Shift motor activation.

      Took the Elephant out after a good Month just to Have oils Circulating. 2L mode as usual is Fun.

      Starts up nicely. I do not have to worry about Batteries as my Solar System keeps them on a trickle charge (Most of my vehicles are stored that way).



      1. Wipers are back. Maybe it was just carbon or loose contact in switches.

      2. AC appears to have developed some fault. There is hissing noise from the dash and hardly any cooling. It might be that Gas has Escaped due to Lockdown (No use)

      Though I used to Crank the car and turn on AC every week for a few minutes.



      Missing the good old days. Last Monsoon was sooo Much better. Be it Offroading or Visiting Lakes and so on.
