Yeah. A bit different. Are the facts they are showing really true about the Sanskrit talking Village and the African village?

Pathetic is right word. Just can't make the head or tail of the Panda ad.

The ad for the new mahindra scooter ( the Rodeo, I believe) is downright ridiculous!Update : Youtube video embedded
guy on the bike looks hilarious, the fist bump at the end is epic!

The Panda's change colour as they eat the gems. As per the colour the gems turn one particular part of their fur into the colour of the gem itself. Once the gem gets digested inside the system, the fur changes back to normal.

Its quite complicated actually. Has a very deep meaning.

I saw this ad when I was very young.
A lady in her 30s walks in a eye clinic to get her eyes checked.
The doctor slips on the sight testing frame on her nose and puts some
glasses to check her eye sight power.
'Read the display ' he commands.
Lady: I can't read.
Doc: Ok (Switches to some other powered glasses) Read now.
Lady: Nope can't read.
Doc : (Switches to some other powered glasses) Try again.
Lady: Nope can't read.
Frustrated Doc: Whats wrong can't you see anything.
Lady: Doc I can see everything, but I cannot read as I am Illiterate.

It was a literacy advert to spread awarness amongst people along with the
'Padhna likhna seekho, O mehnat karne waalo' jig.

I'm not sure whether it worked but the eye check up thing was bang on spot and left a lot to ponder about. That was some thinking by whosoever made that at that time.
I think it was in Marathi.

The message is for the Panda's not for us. i.e. Eat gems to have a colourful life. We unfortunately dont grow any fur.

Could somebody give me more information on this new model if you have any update

Mods Please delete/move this thread of duplicated

This spells absolute mayhem for an already confusing segment! Could it be the *new* 1.6 k series engine going in the sx4? God, I wish I had to buy a 'second' car right now. Would have rushed with my cheque to Maruti! For the first time, even rattles would be allowed if this offering from Maruti is as souped up as the international markets! Woohoo!

The ad I saw mentioned something about Swift's performance. Don't recall anything being mentioned about suspension. Have they released more than 1 ad?

They'll probably just launch with the 1.2 K-series + a 'sports' package.
