All the mid-middle class will own a Nano and all the higher middle and the higher class will own a Nano for second, third or a fourth car.

All said with the hope that the Tatas won't let us down with it being a real car and with a decent quality at that.

The airport is far only for people who live in Indiranager, Kormangala, Marthahalli, etc because the old airport was nearer to them. But for someone living in Girinagar, Banashankari areas the old airport still took 2 hours at peak hours…so the distance should not be a matter of complaint.

This is not restricted to Bihar. I know someone in Karnataka who has 45 acres of irrigated land just for himself, but works as a Kalasi because it is a freaking "sarkari naukari". The rural folk give too much importance to the life long security of the govt jobs.
