When Devarajan H was 8, he saw a car which had a ‘three-pointed star’ logo and fell in love with it. The eight-year-old decided to buy the same car one day and after 80 years at the age of 88, he finally bought one. No prizes for guessing that the ‘three-pointed star’ logo was of the brand Mercedes-Benz.
The responsibility of raising took most of Devarajan’s time. Things don’t come easy to a farmer from Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu.
But in the second innings of life, his wife reminded him of his childhood dream. And last week, he along with his wife and kids went to take delivery of the car — Mercedes-Benz B-Class, which is known for its high roof and spacious cabin. The ex-showroom price of the car starts at Rs. 32 lakhs in Tamil Nadu.
Devarajan believes that his dream came true only because of his wife’s support.
In the video, you can see Devarajan’s eyes twinkle with joy while signing the car papers. At the store, he celebrated his new purchase with his family and friends. The staff memebrs joined the celebrations too.
