Holy Cow!!

Cows are holy for Hindus and they have lot of uses in India from giving us milk to being a sightseeing Object to Road Dividers. India is great!!. We have to swerve round cows too when we drive our hondas and Mercedes and Audis and them all.

well i have already told you in email what I drive. But let me tell all something of cars in India. Here we have the home grown Ambassador from long ago. That is a copy of some British car -- am forgetting the name-- the model is no longer found in UK. The good old amby as we call it is a sturdy car for INDIAN roads. Then there was Fiat which became Premiere Padmini.. then came Maruti Suzuki... and that changed everything.. now we have Hondas, Daewoo, Hyundai, skoda, mercedes, audis too.. and more.. but these cars are very costly.. sply the audi is a recent addition and costs some Rs. 6500000 (?) and mercedes M-class for eg costs Rs. 5000000 bentley costs Rs 30000000 and so on or maybe more.. so how do you compare ? well potato costs some Rs 5 a KG and so now if you compare cost of potato in your country you will know the comparison of car costs..
