    Hello from India!

    Greeting's from India!

    My name is Arvind. Actually I was registered in this forum in the year 2012-2013. I could'nt recover my ID as well as password. So I made it again. To make it again was like chasing & getting something :). I was not able to get registered due the deactivation of reCAPTCHA v1 by google, which was to be done in the registering form. I was searching ways, how to connect with a moderator to get that issue sorted out but, there was no way IMO, I sis not find it. So, I searched the forum & many threads where I would find a contact. And yes, I found Sid.Stavros & Cooks fine pipe works (no advertisement here :)). I found their youtube channel & instagram pages, where I left messages so that they can inform the mod's regarding the recaptcha issue. These Gentlemen helped me by passing the message to the mod's & the recaptcha thing was put off now.
    Now, I am again in. Very many thanks these Gentlemen & this forum to get me in.
    Thanks again.

    Puffing Dark Flake & typing this intro message

    Happy puffing to you all & a nice weekend

    Best,
    Arvind.

    Welcome back to PSU, Arvind! I can't say that I've met many pipe smokers from India. What is the scene like there?

    Piffyr!

    Even me too have not seen anyone till now. But, they are there. We dont have any tobacconists selling here. All are bought via bootlagers & in the black market. I myself try to get some tobacco for my pipes while I travel out of the country, say once or twice in a year. I have not bought any tobacco from other countries by post & via customs. I have bought pipes from ebay auctions & stand alone estate pipe sellers. They have reached me till now in good state. Regarding tobacco that wont be the case. I think it will a risky job to order tobacco via post!

    Hope this helps :)

    Best,
    Arvind.

    P.S: Thanks againg for helping to pass the recaptcha issue to the mod's.

    You're very welcome, Arvind, but I just passed the message along. The mods and admin did the work.

    Thanks for describing the Indian pipe scene. I'm not surprised that you don't see many pipers where you are. I live in the heart of Tobaccoland, USA and I could count the number of pipe smokers I've met locally with one hand and have fingers left over.
