Anand Mahindra used to drive Blue Fiat
Recalling his college days, Anand Mahindra said, “It brought back my ‘Sunday memories’. I was in JJ College then. I used to go by bus. But my mother sometimes gave me her blue Fiat car. Allowed to run. But then I hardly thought it would cost so much,” he tweeted.
Still, people found it expensive
Users reacted to the post like: “In 1972 my father bought an ambassador car for Rs 18000 on road.” Another user wrote, “It’s expensive.” Another user expressed concern over the depreciation of the Indian Rupee. One wrote, “I see how the value of the rupee is falling with time. Today Rs 15,000 gets us two tires of a car. But we would have got a car if that 15,000 was put in gold.”
