This one is a bit #emotional one, not because of this very #materialistic thing, but because of long wish, #actions and #buildup that #contemplated to this very #moment. Almost all of the #documentations done. I am one #happy #brother and a #son now.
Growing up I have always loved #bikes & I still do, but my #dad was all against bikes, yet somehow my #mom convinced my dad to buy me bikes in two different occasions, and one got stolen during #college days.
As a #young #adult I have always wanted to own a #HarleyDavidson, and it was my aim to own a Harley Davidson as soon as I started #working, but as we grow older, our #perspectives and #priority changes.
My dad wanted to upgrade his car with his pension money, but he happened to retire when I started my #engineering. Me being an #expensive son to raise, he spent most of his hard earned #money #funding me. I only realised how hard it is to earn money in a #conventional way & retain it, only after I have to #grind my ass off day in and day out at the #office.
Realising the difficulties that my parents must have gone through to raise me, I stalled my own desire and I decided to gift my dad & sis a #brand new car. After much discussion, we closed in to Renault Duster. 2015 while I was home, I booked the vehicle and made payment later on, but they happened to deliver a wrong variant which we do not want. They deliberately crafted their ways and means to handover the vehicle which they have instead of delivering what I want. Despite #paying #upfront, I had to wait for long 6 months and things didn't materialise then also. It took two years to settle the matter. 😅😅 Since, I lost faith in the booking system, and unethical & unprofessional business practices are prevalent in our home town. This time around I was adamant that I wouldn't book, yet I will buy a car, get all documentations done and handover the keys.
I took a stand, made my parents worry, but I got way more cooler features at cheaper rate & my bank balance will be fatter. At the end of the day, if your intentions and heart is good, everything turns out to be good.
