car car car..

I saw a BMW yesterday while getting back from work. I was thoroughly fascinated to see it, as BMWs are rare sight in Bangalore. I don’t even get to see Mercs too often.

This invoked my memories of Iran; we used to count the number of BMWs and Mercs we got to see during our trips to-n-fro office. I am bit of a car-freak, so I liked Iran’s roads where ample variety of cars was seen everyday. They have all the good models of European market. The main attraction was Toyota’s Land Cruiser model, which is called Prado. It seems only few celebrities in Mumbai have Land Cruisers.

They also have BMW bikes in Iran; they look simply awesome! One of the items in my to-do list there was to get a ride in BWM bike. It didn’t get fulfilled; because only police are authorized to use those bikes, aam junta can’t have high-end bikes there for some law-n-order issues.

I'd read somewhere that one of our movie actors (I think it’s sunil shetty) gifted a BMW car to his girlfriend while proposing marriage, and said that BMW meant ‘be my wife’. Now, that’s a decent proposal. Can anyone reject such proposals? ;-)

ಭಾರತದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ಯಾಸೋಲಿನ್ ಬೆಲೆ ಮತ್ತು ಅಲ್ಲಿಯ ಬಳಕೆಯನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದ್ರೆ ಲ್ಯಾಂಡ್ ಕ್ರ್ಯೂಸರ್ಸ್ ಇಟ್ಟುಕೊಂಡೋರು ಪೆಟ್ರೋಲ್ ಬಂಕನ್ನೇ ಖರೀದಿ ಮಾಡಿಟ್ಟುಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತೋ ಏನೋ!

ಬೈಕ್ ಕೊಡೋದು ನಿಜವಾಗಿಯೂ ಡಿಸೆಂಟ್ ಪ್ರೊಪೋಸಲ್ಲೇ, '...ಕೊನೇವರೆಗೆ...' ಅದನ್ನು ಉಂಗುರದ ಹಾಗೆ ಧರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡೇ ಇರಬೇಕು ಅನ್ನೋದರಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಜವಾದ ಕಷ್ಟ ಬರುತ್ತೇ ನೋಡಿ :-)
