Mark :) Tata motors are making more buses and trucks than cars. India has more of Suzuki and Chevrolet and BMW and Mercedes now

Mona said...

But yes, there are a lot of car adverts, but more so, of the motorbikes, which are more popular as far as dowry is concerned.

For that kind of money it doesn't matter what she looks like? What would be really weird is if, in the end, they really did fall in love.

I could make a book out of that.

There are many reasons to marry. Also many reasons to separate. Unfortunately. Good to see you, Mona. D
