It was like a lull after a storm at the Pragati Maidan on Tuesday — a day after the Auto Expo 2010 dropped its curtains. Lakhs of visitors, a bevy of Bollywood stars, utter chaos, vehicles worth millions on display, hot models...the mercury couldn’t have soared higher in this chill.

Delhiite had their own reasons to celebrate. But for bikers, it was the penultimate day that made them feel on cloud nine as nine-time World Moto GP champion Valentino Rossi teamed up with actor John Abraham.

“He [Rossi] doesn’t even know how excited I am to sit beside him,” John said in Hindi, even as he tried hard to contain his childish grin. But Rossi was rather petrified by the traffic here. “Everybody seems to make whatever they want [on the road],” he said.

His date with Delhi had to be cut short as a section of the media just couldn’t go beyond questions about John and Bipasha. Bad miss.
