Cars as a status symbol


Increasingly society especially in India is becoming materialistic, and the social status of an individual does not depend on his or her qualification, professional experience, values, it only depends on the assets of the person, like how posh his or her house is, the model of car which the person owns.

The intolerant indian intelligence and security agencies are extremely prejudiced when they classify indian citizens on the basis of the vehicle they own or drive, as they do not take into account, the fact that not everyone may have the same opportunities.

Owning a vehicle, especially a car is fairly expensive, and those who had limited funds when young, may not have purchased or used a vehicle, especially living away from their family in a large city.
