Maruti 800: Ruk, Jaana Nahi says Amul to the Indian classic


While Amul has reached levels of success hat everyone acknowledges, it’s the Amul girl in a myriad of posters that always remains close one’s heart. Amul’s Facebook page has the ability to make us smile everytime we take a look. Today is all about saying farewell to Maruti 800.

Maruti 800 has met with phenomenal success over the years, having been the first mass market city car that put a growing number of Indian’s behind their own wheels, to having reached far and wide across the country ensuring enhanced mobility for a multitude of family’s.

And now finally, that little car after 30 years of production, says goodbye. You may hate the look of a Maruti 800, or haven’t seen one on big city roads of late, but ask around, and almost everyone you know has sat in one over the years. Having sold in millions in markets around the world, recent years saw some of it’s shine fade.

With India gradually adhering to stricter emissions norms, sales were chocked, and while the decision had to be made, it was allowed to run along for as long as possible. Between boxy, matchbox, and ugly, chances are most people will have a story around the Maruti 800. It not only adapted to India’s haphazard roads, it allowed everyone to own a car, and in some cases learn driving.
