In the video, the man says that even though he was passionate about cars, he only bought second hands cars to save money in order to make sure that his kids get the best education and also to support his family.

Around six months ago, he thought of purchasing a second-hand car again, but this time his kids encouraged him to buy a brand new car. Also, his children followed up this suggestion with a huge surprise for him, by buying a brand-new Maruti Suzuki WagonR for the man. The car was delivered to him as a surprise.
