As an Indian-American, I'm not sure if I should take what you said there as an insult or not... I'm sure you weren't trying to be offensive, but what do you base that comment on and how can you make such a blanket statement for an entire country?

I have plenty of friends living in India who are car enthusiasts... there is NOTHING about the country that makes it difficult for someone to be an enthusiast... if they wish to be car enthusiasts then there's nothing stopping them.


I think it wasn't about liking cars... but about owning such cars

as owning these cars in the US (less tax, overall people make more money) is already such a huge accomplishment.... I feel what he meant was that it's more difficult over there in comparison to the US
