Of goosebumps and quick bucks

Clad in a sleeveless white short dress and black shoes, Sanam Jain adorns a TVS bike.

Jain wears a perfect smile, trying to attract visitors to the bike and the number of people thronging the dais suggests she doesn’t have to try too hard.

Look closer and you can see her shivering a little. When asked if she’s comfortable wearing this dress in such cold weather, she replies quickly, “I have done such shows before.” The goosebumps on her arms tell a different story.

Models from different countries and female college students trying to earn quick money are attracting more eyeballs than the vehicles at the 10th Auto Expo.

Hayley Samsx from London has done auto shows in England but the kind of attention she is getting here is unprecedented. “People ask me to pose with them for pictures, so I have to get down from the dais every 10 to 15 minutes.”
