This One For My Car

It was 9 in the morning when I rang up Nirulas, Sector 2 Noida, to book a table. Fingers crossed. I was doubtful but was hoping to get a nice seating place in the upper section for the meeting at noon the same day. It was the start of April in 2007 and the summers were just starting to pick up. Luckily I did get a nice place booked. After the call it was hard to keep track of time as it flew and I had to rush so as to be in time. It after all isn't considered good manners to make a girl waiting ;-)
07th April 2007, the first time I met my then would be wife! Dressed in the best dress for for the day and she still insists it was her intuition to be wearing pink color. Something I doubt till today but dare ignore ;-) For the records, we married later that year and yes..each other!!
A year later on our first anniversary (1st meeting anniversary that is), actually a day late, I gifted my wife one of the few priced possession I have as of now; a Maruti Suzuki SX4!!
We decided it was time I bought a car. My first choice to be honest was a Honda city, a little over budget, a little too good and class apart. I wasn't aware of the SX4 model until one of my close friend suggested I have a look. Some online research and some look and there was no doubt this is what its going to be! It was a new model that Maruti introduced from its partner company, around 6 months back in India then. Reviews were good, look was awesome and a little less expensive then my first choice.
It has served well..too bad had to deal with one visit to the body shop last year but apart from that its been fabulous to posses and ride.
This one for the fourth anniversary of my 2008 model Maruti Suzuki SX4!!

  1. Nice story Milind...I have had my "super car," a 1995 Dark Cherry Metalic Chevy Impala SS, for 17 years and the love of my life, my wife, for over 22 years! Carry on! Dennis Driscoll
