Bye Bye friend!!


One guy quipped that this is the worst thing to get sentimental about. Another said its perfectly understandable. For me its the loss of a true companion. My parents informed me yesterday that they have sold the first car we owned, a 1991 Fiat (Premier Padmini).
With my parents not knowing driving, the car was in utter disuse after I came to US, and the end was inevitable. Nothing great about the car (nothing special about any padmini's for that matter). But its the perfect family car for the Indian conditions. Easy to drive, no electronic stuff that goes berserk when you least expect. As I have said many times to my friends, its a simple contraption with an engine and 4 wheels.
But the sentimental value is just too important to overlook. Learning to drive in it, numerous visits to shopping places (and the mechanic shed), visiting my grandma's house, TNPCEE exams, and first trip to my college etc., Even rajinikanth with all his wealth, still drives around in Madras with the first car he bought, a Padmini.
Its highly doubtful that I will feel so emotionally attached to any cars I might acquire. Its with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to a companion thats been a part of my life for the last 6 years......
