In between relocating to Mumbai, starting work with a new company, looking for a place to stay* and getting married, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to hang around here very much. So if posts are sketchy in both quality and quantity, or don't even come up at all, for the next month or so, you know I'll be doing one or more of the things I've mentioned above. And I know you'll understand. =)
Yes, quite unexpectedly, Fiat India launches another car in an(other?) attempt to get back on track. I guess they needed something for the new Managing Director to speak about at his first meeting with the press. The following may have been overheard in the Fiat India washroom earlier this April:
Person 1: "Hey, we can't have him standing there just by himself. He's gotta have something to say, right?" Person 2: Duhuhh... Person 1: Hey, why don't we launch another car and then market it like a bunch of dribbling retards?" Person 2: (zipping up) Hey, how come we didn't think of that before?
The new car is the dubiously named Adventure Sport, which by the looks of it seems like a rebadged Palio Weekend, not by far one of the models that's been scorching their sales charts. Well, we'll give them the benefit of the doubt as we always do and we'll wait and watch as we always do. And whatever else the new MD plans on taking up on a war footing, we're hoping getting that dratted website back on again is right up there on his list.
They're saying now that how good a driver you are could be linked to the kind of smells you encounter while you're driving. Peppermint, cinnamon, lemon, coffee and the smell of the sea help you relax and are therefore good for you - and for everyone else on the road! But smells of food, camomile, jasmine or lavender have the potential of turning you into a mobile messenger of death.
