  • Doing something for the upliftment of poor like giving free education,for hospital purposes etc is always better than donating to any religious places.

      Logical thinking is kind of rare in our country. As a wise man once said “Common Sense is not so Common”

      • Nonsense is common!

    TVS could have used that money to help people patch holes in their hearts, to remove tumors from the brain, to help sponsor potential future scientists to make India better or pour it in R&D for the development of new technologies to help reduce fatalities. God would have been much more pleased that way.

      I guess TVS doesn’t want many Darwin awards with their new launches so trying to bribe God, they should instead pay attention on advanced safety features.
