I was watching movie "transformers", where a high school going kid demands a car of his own from his father and he gets his yellow car which later turns out to be a transforming entity.
Will we Indians, ever buy our teenage daughter or son their own car ? Will you do it for your kid ?
if yes, in how may years hence you will see this trend ? (select the poll option)
If Yes, which car you will buy ? (state in your comment)
if no, why ? (state in your comment)
The POLL question is towards you (who ever is the reader) as individual. It is a personal question to somewhat extent.
e.g. for me, my daughter is 14, so legally she can start driving a car at 18,
(1) so in all probability i can buy her a car in next 4 years.
(2) But i may not buy her a car in 4 years, and may decide she needs to be at least 21 before driving (may be in next decade)
(3) I may also decide to never buy her a car and want her to buy her own car with her own money.
the POLL seeks to get the answer in a such a way.
We are providing them bicycles
We are providing PCs to our kids already
We are letting them have their own smart phone as well
We are letting them travel on their own to adventure camps, school trips etc
We also put them in boarding schools and let them learn/manage on their own in some cases
We are letting them buy own laptops in junior colleges
We also let them use/buy their own bike or scooter as well in some cases.
I am sure this will evolve to cars in future....
PS: Teenage = 18+ , which is the official age for getting drivers license. Assume that there is a need, (affordability is a matter of accommodating priorities) and of course like anyone the teenager in question will learn to drive just like you and me learnt and getting license is just a routine thing.
