Feature: As time goes by

There is a reason why I chose to bring the Triumph Speedmaster to the town in Gujarat you see on these pages. A reason that will be clear by the time you are through with this story. Before we get on with things though, I need to make something else clear — this is not a review of the Speedmaster.

Neither is it a story of some godforsaken road that I fell in love with. Instead, this is a story of identities, a story of history and of legacies. It is a story about the preservation of culture and withstanding the ravages of time.
