Did I tell you that Vyas is into automobiles lately? He is also a beeeeg fan of Honda and has even been defending their recent recall of some cars due to defective inflators. He tells everyone that he is going to become an automobile engineer and will join Honda. You’d think he already has an offer letter from the company! Well, that is some change of plan considering he originally wanted to become a ‘garbage collector’.
Vyas’s favorite magazine now is Autocar India. He doesn’t miss a word, starting from the title to the copyright information at the end of the book, every month. Will never be bored of talking for hours together on the auto-specs to any random person walking this planet. It doesn’t matter even if the listener is not interested.
The big brother’s influence rubs onto the little fella too. Varun though seems to prefer style over substance. His favorite car (he says), is the Lamborghini Murcielago. Next fav. is the Bugatti Veyron. BMW comes third and last is Honda. The other vendors are not in the reckoning at all. He can keep gawking at the various pics of the various sporty cars in the various car mags and books at home!
Car-craze plus commercials does something to kids. Here’s is a sample..
The other day, Varun was watching a BMW ad. He turned to his dad and said,
Varun: “Appa, shall we buy a BMW”
Dad V: “I don’t have the money to buy one”
Varun: “Listen pa. It is easy. Call Quikr. They’ll give more money for our Honda City.”
Vyas: Hey, Honda is the best. Appa, you retain the Honda. Buy us a BMW.
Dad V: Ok, will check if it available at Connexions tomorrow.
Told you. Vs are like that only!
