i read an article on Business World (yes, i do read that occassionally :-) ) about how maruti is contemplating phasing out the ol' 800, and replacing it with alto (as the entry level car)....yes, the 800 has been around for sometime now, but i was wondering, if i bought one now, and managed to keep it for a couple of decades, my kids would actually get to say, "my pop drives around in that old 800" fact they would actually treat it like a relic, like say, i look at the old "morris"....... some years ago, i used to say , " my dad drives the old ambi".....but the ambi was THE car for so many decades....funny thing being that, as the lifespan of humans increase, that of their cars seem to be on the we will be changing cars faster and faster and faster (assuming we get richer and richer and richer..hehe)........there was a time when the car was a lifetime purchase, but like everything else, its life is also becoming shorter...shorter and shorter till even a momentous thing like buying a car would become as momentary as a lil snapshot, and changes happen so fast that life becomes a series of snapshots that might or might not be linked....just as it is now.....maybe thats why they say "the more things change, the more they stay the same".......saw the 7th episode of taken yesterday, my conclusion Steven spielberg is an alien in disguise, why else is he trying to drill so many concepts of aliens into us?? hehe, but i like it anyway...............
