And they came up with simple yet effcetive name for the engine – car – well as it turns out it is intriguing now.

We called it Jumpy and had our share of wonderful childhood memories involving mishaps, punctures, long hours whiled away in traffic jams and getting scolded for spilling icecream on its pristine floor mats. We had Jumpy for around 10 years before we gave him away to a cousin in Kerala. Visited him some years later, refurbished and looking brand new, it was truly a nostalgic moment. We have graduated to bigger and better cars since but I’ll never forget Jumpy — the people’s car.
