Excitement and nostalgia filled the atmosphere, as gleaming vintage cars rang in old times at a rally in Bhopal today. The event was organized with the sole motive of preserving the old heritage of the country and to educate people about the evolution of the automobile industry. The widow of former Indian cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Sharmila Tagore flagged off the car rally in his memory. The proud owners of these vintage cars showcased their collection and went on a drive. While a few of those present had acquired an interest from a family member, others had picked it up as a hobby later in life.
