John, the Gypsy boy

John's baby, a Maruti Gipsy

John Abraham can afford to buy any car he likes. And since he likes SUVs, he has an Audi Q7 in his garage. But what’s he doing with a Maruti Gypsy?

And John says why. “When I was in school my father booked a Gypsy, and his booking number was one. We were supposed to get the first Gypsy but for some strange reason he cancelled the booking. And you know how it is in schooldays when you have a crush on a girl, and you never go out with her.”

Cut to big John standing proudly next to his white Gypsy and patting it affectionately. “This baby is that for me. I have always had a crush on it and never got to ride it. So I had decided that one fine day I am going to have a Gypsy. So here it is.” John points to his new love. “Now I am the proud owner of a Gypsy.”

Why did John wait so long to buy a Gypsy? I was always under the impression that the Gypsy was out of production. It was only when I visited Maruti dealer Vitesse that I came to know that the Gypsy was still in production.”
