So, a Nano Cab caught fire in Sri Lanka. This happened days ago but I just saw the pics on Facebook. We’ve been using India’s cheap Tata Nano as cabs and they’ve been wildly popular. This whole bursting into flames thing is a bid of bad PR to say the least. The pics came with an email, btw. It is true that a Nano in Colombo did catch fire. Nobody was hurt.
I rode around in a Nano Cab and I rather liked it. The companies that imported them have been booked solid and it personally took me months to even get inside one. I was also hopefully that they might compete against trishaws which, while generally not on fire, drive around like they are.
But this catching fire thing is a bit disturbing. We’ve had enough suicide cadres. Suicide cars is just too much.
