Don't tell me that this is a share-auto you spotted in chennai. I know they use omni as their bodies but this looks like an indica. Anyway i will give my thoughts a rest until you post the other pic.

.. If Ratan Tata sees this, he will be thumping his head against a brick wall like this . Also,I do hope that he comes up with an alternative to the Force Minidor.

Ironwolf,I wonder if the car's owner got those holes done,so that he'd be able to tie down a tarpaulin cover on the car. Slide the rope b/w the holes,and he's sure to find the cover on the car after a tornado passes by. No fear of losing the cover to strong winds..

In the UAE pretty much all sedans, hatches and all other segments are coming with Reverse Parking Sensor/Camera as an option, some even have it as standard equipment... but it is always Reverse Parking Sensor Or Reverse Parking Camera... some of the higher end vehicle also have Forward Parking Sensors as well, but not cameras, these devices as the name suggests aids in parking in really tight spots, and they are pretty neat as well.

The Baleno guy is just nuts, he doesn't need a camera upfront, and he doesnt need the sensors and the camera behind, any one would do fine.

Ohh i just got a brilliant idea.
When the SWIFT uses its *ahem* hydraulics, the baleno fellow drives ehind it to video tape it. and the rear camera is to see that the cops dont creep up on them. I hope. Or maybe There are 2 such swifts and they stand in front and behind the Baleno and "Bounce around".

The Maruti Suzuki Team

Now you are ENLIGHTENED...hehehe

His front windscreen seems to be sun-filmed with a very dark one. So he need the camera i guess

Creative thinking Cyrus.

I guess the Baleno chap wanted a disguise for his reverse camera and hence had the same look and feel at the front too.
