I’ve been quietly smarting about in my Yellow-mobile ever since it came back from its smattering of personalisation and I had every reason to. Given the bold colour and further accentuated by its accessories, my Brezza looks like no other on the road, and that’s as unique as it gets, on a budget, of course. However, this month was a different kind of challenge for the car. As the winter finally descended on North India, I decided to take a trip to the mountains with my family, with this being the first opportunity for my two young children to experience the joy of snow.
And so, packed to the brim, as is the norm when going out on holiday with the kids, we headed towards Chail, with a stopover in Rohtak for the night. We’d been hearing for a few days before that it was snowing in Chail and so as we crossed Shimla, it was a delight to see the white powder making an appearance on the mountain sides. And the scene in Chail was unbelievable, as the entire town was covered in snow, making it a truly magical setting. This is the irony that us North Indians face in our conditions, not only do we get the fierce heat of summer, but we also get the pleasure of experiencing snow in the cold months, giving us both extremes in temperature as the seasons change.
On the five-day trip, though, the Brezza behaved impeccably as always, and never missed a beat despite the cold and icy conditions. And hey, I discovered another use of its bright yellow hue, even in thick snow, the car is very easy to spot!
