'desa ma desh, Haryana' For any one wondering what that means, there are many states but Haryana is one of the best.

Brilliant what the kid did. He must have achieved something to deserve a BMW from his father. Being born a son is also considered one of the achievements.

Carry on kid!

Imagine the havoc he would have created with the BMW on the roads in his "current mental state" Moreover I think his parents also need to be diagnosed, wonder what made them even gift him a weapon to mass destruct!!!

Shocking! Unfortunately, seems neither the kid nor the parents understood the value of money considering fast money. I recall in mid 90s when i pleaded my mom to get me a Kinetic Pride for my 11th std and my mum asked me to get 85%+ in my 10th CBSE Board exams. I did, but then my mum got my brother and me a blue TVS Champ with her hard earned money a year later. The first car i bought was after working for 6 years post my MBA and that too from my dad - his blue Maruti Zen with the carburetted engine after my mum's insistence. The reason for this was mum was teaching me the fact that money doesn't grow on trees for my parents too. Alas! generation change. Perhaps, the kid clearly shows the distinction between being rich and wealthy. Money doesn't buy class does it.

The harm done here is not the "BMW" being pushed into the river. It is the mentality that someone can do as they please, especially in/with public property.

Also, the kid will not learn when the unlimited becomes limited. The kid will destroy/abuse something that is not his.

Apparently this kid had sold his Toyota Fortuner 2 months ago and bought this BMW. Ever since he was feeling cramped inside this car and he badly wanted a Jaguar. He wanted to sell BMW to get Jaguar and his dad wasn't agree.

One fine morning he left home without telling anyone and pushed his car in river. The locals thought some accident had happen and dived into river and later found that no one is in the car and this notorious guy had deliberately tried to murder his car.

For such a mindset, he deserves a Social Service at the minimum. Feeling terrible for BMW, and that car for particular!

A lot of folks are wondering how this could have happened.

You see, it's not a difficult task if you follow the right procedure:

So here are some tips on

HOW TO GET YOUR SON TO PUSH HIS BMW INTO A RIVER for DUMMIES

from another post on team-Bhp:

At a restaurant a few days later, there was a loud crash that made me jump - and there was this Indian kid overturning the chairs one at a time, while the parents and other members of the family were busy talking amongst themselves as if nothing was wrong with their kid's behaviour.


If one is a typical Indian inconsiderate dad of the likes mentioned in the post above, pushing BMW's into rivers will come easily for your spoilt brat when he grows up.

The Times o India article linked below provides more details.
First of all, it is not clear how rich this family is. They have 25 acres of land and depending upon the location and fertility of the land, the price of it might be as low as 25 lakhs to 5 crores unless it is near a city or a major road. This doesn't make them ultra rich. Their other car is a Swift. However, the father stated that they have constructed more than 50 quarters to rent to labourers. It is not clear where these have been constructed. Hopefully it is on their own land and not on encroached public land. This activity seems to lend them the air of political connections and being muscle men as normal people won't be able to handle 50 plus poor tenants. So they could be well off from this angle.

Finally, the SHO states that the youth "got an Innova from his in-laws". In this case, should he not be prosecuted for a dowry offense?

Absolutely right.
This kind of bloke is the perfect candidate for the loony bin.
And his parents as well.

But then we also have the great and the good and the 'entitled' like a certain celebrity man whose name has a passing resemblance to a species of fish (Salmon - For the uninitiated), who did indeed cause a few deaths through rash driving or DUI and got off scot free.

Our country frankly, despite our ancient culture, has a very long way to go in terms of moral and civilizational development in the current scenario of too much money and power resting with all the wrong types of people.

Looks like all their money won't do them good when it comes to bringing up a responsible son, or managing the media guys!

I am really sorry as i am going to hurt some sentiments but i need to say this:

I am kind of happy with what happened. Since he is rich and spoilt and now that his parents know what he is capable of doing, he will surely be given a new car. At a time when the industry is over 30% down, each new car counts

This kid (so, called) will now help industry battle recession, in his own unique and small way!

If you are going to hurt some sentiments do so properly and mention make of car also.

We find it very difficult to guess that.

I bet the father deserves this for raising an insouciant kid and worse demeaning 'mentally unwell' folks. I hope both father and son get ridiculed for this.
