I always carry,

  • Tool Kit
  • Properly inflated spare wheel
  • First Aid medical kit (provided by the manufacturer & customised one)
  • Spare bulbs (my car's old headlights set still working)
  • Seatbelt cutter, glass breaking hammer
  • Long distance torchlight
  • HVK GS initiative sticker stuck on my dashboard with emergency contacts
  • Turmeric powder (please check the article mentioned by @sagar)
  • Power bank (short story at the end of the list)
  • Tow Rope
  • Duplicate key

Wishlist

  • Dashcam (two sides)
  • Full sized spare wheel
  • Air pump
  • Advanced tool kit
  • Floor Jack
  • Jumpstart cables (did this twice to my cars, Freestyle and City on my own with technicians supervision)

A short story on the power bank:

 

I always took my phone's battery for granted as I'm not a heavy user and back then I used Moto X Play known for its battery life. 

Last year when I was travelling to Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, I learnt the importance of two small yet life-saving things, the first one Power Bank and the second one Jio sim card. 

I, for the second time, got betrayed by Google Maps and went inside the jungle(literally) where there was not even a single car, at least a bike in sight. The locals don't even understand Hindi. The only language they know is some local tribal language which didn't even sound like proper Marathi to my father(he knows a bit of Marathi). My phone battery was 1%, Used Airtel sim and the signal bar never appeared. Thankfully, my mother's phone had signals (Reliance sim) and my phone died immediately after copying the resort managers' number.

 

We were betrayed by google maps and were lost somewhere deep inside the jungle, that too in a Sedan where Leopards and Tigers venture in the night. It took 1 hour for the resort people to find us and the time was already 4:00 PM. 

 

So, advice you all to carry Jio sim whenever venturing to unexplored areas and fully charged power bank too. Never trust google maps.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
