Devarajan, who is a farmer in Tamil Nadu bought the Mercedes-Benz B-Class worth Rs 33 Lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai) at an age of 88.
Chennai: They say that you cannot kill a dreamer and his dream. This saying completely stands true, especially for a farmer of Tamil Nadu who recently became a proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz B-Class worth Rs 33 lakh.
What makes the farmer’s achievement more interesting is the fact that he is now 88 years old.
It was a childhood dream and a promise to self. For someone to fulfill their childhood dream is one of the biggest achievements in life, but sadly, only a few can achieve what they dream.
One such lucky person is Devarajan H, who fulfilled his childhood dream of buying a Mercedes-Benz car. It was at the tender age of eight when Devarajan first saw a Mercedes-Benz. The farmer, who once rode a bicycle and toiled in the fields on bullock carts, is now a proud owner of the German brand.
Mr. Devarajan hails from Tamil Nadu. He was not even aware of the name of the car at that point when he first saw the car. But ever since his first glimpse, he has admired the Mercedes-Benz brand, and worked hard to save enough money to buy a Mercedes car 80 years later.
He says that he fell in love with the three-pointed star logo of the brand. It isn’t exactly clear what particular model he would have seen back in 1930, but it is very clear that it left a lasting impression on his mind. The impression was such that it lasted eighty years, and made him work hard to own a car from the German brand.
The Mercedes-Benz dealership celebrated his lifetime achievement with a cake and shared an overwhelming video of Devarajan buying the car.
In the video, the farmer can be seen lifting the cover of the B-Class along with his wife in the showroom. He later sat in the co-driver seat of the car while driving out of the showroom.
The hardwork of Devarajan shows that age is just a number, especially if one has a spirit . Fighting his way through life’s battles, he finally made it to a place where he could own his dream car. If this does not inspire, I’m not sure what will.
