In India, the common tradition when you buy a brand new car, is to take it to a temple or any other religious place of worship and have it blessed by the priest. Well, turns out that the Chinese are pretty religious and sentimental about their materialistic things just like us.
However, all didn't go well with a certain Chinese man in Jiangsu city. He purchased a brand new BMW worth Rs. 50 lakhs and like any normal person, wanted to have it blessed.
However, things went downhill after he placed some burning incense sticks around his car which ended up in the vehicle going up completely in flames!
In the video, you can see him covering the car with a red cloth for offering prayers. It is quite possible that the material was highly flammable and it caught on fire from the burning incense, which ended up burning the BMW.
Honestly, some people should just let some sense prevail when mixing their sentimental thoughts and actions with logic.
While we can't even imagine the pain the poor man must be going through, people on social media, however, are joking about it on the lines of how perhaps his 'sacrifice' was accepted by the benevolent Gods!
A rare fact that many people don't know about noted chef Vikas Khanna is that, every year during the holy month of Ramadan, he fasts for a day to honour and pay his gratitude to a certain Muslim family in Mumbai.During the 1992 riots, when Vikas was new to Mumbai, he had to rush to Ghatkopar to check on his brother. He lost his way around the city when a Muslim family warned him of the rioters and asked him to take shelter in their home. During a time when no one was helping anybody in the city, the family not only gave him shelter but when a few people came knocking on their door, they told them that Vikas was their son.
Two days ago, the celebrity chef tweeted that he had managed to track down the same family and was ecstatic about the reunion that awaited him.

Vikas Khanna has had his fair share of struggles in life which have only humbled him further. The story of his hardships has been captured wonderfully in a movie called 'Buried Seeds'.
He truly is destiny's child, if one may put it like that.
