Wagon R Image – Maruti Suzuki Website. I just love the new Wagon R ad… It has everything that I would love to have. It just showcases the kind of life I have to create for myself, a career in the travel industry and a life on your own terms, with nature. At times in the Himalayas, at times on a seashore and at times in a dense forest… A visiting card that says ‘CEO – OOO’ i.e. CEO Out of Office, Bangalore. And in place of address just a virtual (website) address. The theme is that the car is for the people who chase their dreams. And a tagline for the ad ‘The times – they sure are changing’.
Wagon R Advertisement – Travel
If you have not seen the ad, see a bit of it here Wagon R. Ok the link has gone bad.
It may sound stupid, but the fact that I own and drive a Wagon R, makes me think that I am in the right direction. And not to forget the tagline says ‘For the smarter race’… another feel good factor.
Update Jun 2016 – It looks like a dream, but I am living the dream life I wrote about 10 years ago. I live in Goa, my visiting card only gives my virtual address. My year is divided between the Himalayas, Beaches, and Jungles, interspersed with some odd visits to the big cities. I guess it took 10 years for this blog to make this dream come true. Had I not written this blog, I may have missed this memory of mine. A small inspiration that an odd advertisement inspired in me. The vision that you have for your future can come true.
And in my life, this is a living, documented proof. When I wrote the above piece I was working in a well-known technology company. And I don’t think I planned for this future. I just wished for it and life took turns to make it happen. It’s not without reason that people tell you to wish carefully.
