I don't mind volunteering for this (*). I enjoy the Bombay-Pune drive and have 
done it numerous times (I am assuming here that the intent was to do the 
pickup/drop personally as opposed to just arranging a cab -- which also can be 
done -- and I'd suggest that's what we do if either the arrival/departure is 
late night/early morning).

I do see Harshard's point about not paying too much attention to one foreign 
speaker and all of that but tbh as far as wrong messages go there possibly are a 
numerous things, that might give that message which one could worry about ;-).

(*) especially since it isn't like I've been super helpful in much of anything 
else ;)
