Cat on the car. Which car?
Everyday I pass him and he sits like a Lord, and surveys all those who pass by as though asking "Halt who goes there? What is your business?"
He guards it like a revered treasure and you can't help but marvel at his dedication and his supine grace as he looks straight at you.
Ok--enough about the cat. You already got the picture. (Pun intended)
A question now for the Car Aficionados amongst you.
Can you tell me the make of the car? I am posting one more photo that gives away the shape and a few more details, to make it a little easier for you.I shall update this post on Wednesday late night (Thursday morning in India) with a picture that I clicked of the car logo.
Let us see how many of you get it right. [ And yes, if you guess it right before I publish the photo of the logo I will send you a handmade card --subject to a maximum of two. I can't make any more than two, as I am really hard pressed for time, these days. I shall tell you all very soon what I am busy with and no it is not what you think or don't think! ;-) :-) ]
Any guesses? Your time starts now.
Update as promised
Oh My God!! All of you are a bunch of real car aficionados! So many of you got it right! I have a really tough time now choosing two people to send the card to!.
First person to guess the manufacturer was Niall. But he got the model only later.
Mihir again got the manufactuer but he wasn't sure of the make either,
Congrats to Swathy , Santosh and to Amit Kumar Das.
Swathy lives in Australia and we connected through our blogs. She has been reading mine for a very long time now.
Santosh, I think, decided to delurk after this post :-) I don't recall seeing him around.
Amit has a very interesting blog named 'The last cigarette'. he connected with me because of my book last year and has been following my blog ever since. More than his blog he is an amazing photographer. This is the link to his photos.(They are really worth seeing) Since I really cannot leave anyone out of these three, I shall send all of you cards.(I am not sure of them being handmade because of lack of time; If you want handmade, let me know but it will take a while) Please send me your postal addresses, three of you!
Thank you to all who took part--it was fun wasn't it?
Also a big thank you to all of you who voted for Prashant because of my special request. He has been shortlisted for Royal challengers Chief blogger out of hundreds of applicants! He would be meeting Anil Kumble and had a day long round of interviews. Hearty congrats Prashant--and best of luck. His comment on this post wasn't the right answer but it sure was witty. He said he felt like calling the cat Honda Kity :-)
See you all soon and I shall
Addendum (Posted in a embarrassed manner)
There was one more person who got it right.The person is none other than Shruti a wonderful person and a superb blogger. Shruti has really been encouraging, specially in my early days as a writer. She loves cats too! I have no idea how I missed out her name and saw it only after she left a comment asking why she had been left out! A million apologies Shru :-) [as thought the hundred I offered in chat were not enough! :P] Send me your address also please!
