A young man in India who received a BMW for his 22nd birthday pushed it into a river because it wasn’t the Jaguar he had been hoping for, police claim.

Villagers in Yamunanagar, in the northern state of Haryana, were shocked to see a pricey white BMW 3 Series sinking into the Western Yamuna Canal. One witness called police, who sent a recovery team to make sure nobody was trapped inside.

Police divers borrowed an earthmover and, with the help of locals, recovered the BMW from a patch of tall grass it was moored on. Authorities determined the car belonged to a man named Akash, reportedly the son of a prosperous local landowner.

According to police, Akash deliberately pushed his new car into the canal.

Denied Jaguar, Haryana youth pushes BMW into river: Gifted a BMW by his parents instead of a Jaguar that he was demanding, a youth from Haryana’s Yamunanagar on Friday pushed his new car into a swollen river in a fit of anger, police said.

“Akash was demanding a Jaguar car from his father, but when his father failed to buy him one, he threw away his BMW in a fit of anger, Mukesh Kumar, a station house officer for the Chhachhrauli police, told The Times of India. “His family had sold the [Toyota] Innova they had received from his in-laws to buy him the BMW,”

The car, which retails for more than $49,000, was a gift to Akash for his birthday two months ago. Sources told authorities that Akash made a video of himself pushing the vehicle down the embankment into the water and sent it to his parents.

Akash’s father, though, denied the sinking was intentional, claiming his son had swerved to avoid an antelope in the road. He added that Akash never requested a Jaguar for his birthday. Police claim Akash’s parents told them their son has an undisclosed mental health issue that impairs his judgement.

Officials don’t plan to make any arrests, as no criminal complaint has been filed. Whether the BMW can be driven again is still unknown.

This isn’t the first example of someone destroying their own luxury car, though: In 2011, a Chinese businessman was so upset by engine problems with his $200,000 Lamborghini Gallardo that he paid a group of workers to smash the car with sledgehammers on World Consumer Rights Day.

In 2013, another Chinese man intentionally totaled his Maserati Quattroporte after learning the service crew installed used parts.

That same year, a man smashed his 2008 BMW M6 with a sledgehammer outside 2013 International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany. He had paid more than $107,000 for the car when it was new, but complained he had gotten it serviced ten time in Germany and Italy and it still didn’t work right.

(Love Poem) My Bride; Faultless, Funny, And 50



A tick before the millennial my Lady became my Wife

Wholesale disaster if it’s not really a two-way love affair

Little Terrapin girl stole my heart when I wasn’t looking

Eighteen years my heart has been filled with your love

My heart, mind, and Soul are overwhelmed with your kindness


Today you turned fifty, guess the cradle I’m not robbing anymore

Your words and touch are so pleasing to my inner psych and Soul

Your lips are like unto Rose peddles sweet to touch, so soft to kiss

Girl your touch electrifies my mind, body, and soul, sensual overload

When you touch me your love shines and lights the Halo upon your head


Happy Birthday to you girl you are the Sweetheart I never expected to find

I pray that today will be the best first day of the next 100 years of your life

Girl, I have been blessed to be allowed to call you my best friend and Wife

Was it just pure luck or was it by God’s design that allowed me to catch your eye

Birthday girl, 50, just the beginning of middle-aged crazy, I hope you enjoy the ride


“66”, how odd these days

How they just flitter away

Yet still so easy to look back

Upon all of our yesterdays

Not so long ago we were healthy and young

Frolicking around in our adulthood

like a flower welcoming the morning sun

I can count my good friends on one hand

With you, I don’t even need a thumb.

Through the years our friendship has taken many a turn

We have always been the very best of friends

At times we have been each others only lovers

Under the covers or up on the top

Always easy to see the climax in your smile.

“66”, don’t fret this accomplishment so little girl

Your the first of our Baby Boom generation

So, don’t worry so about the numbers my friend

Remember that every flip of the calendar is a gift from The Father.

Yet we all know that sometimes just the smallest of efforts

Can make all our joints sing throughout the night

When we hurt we don’t know if its plastic or bone

We could just bend down and tap it, that is

If only our arthritic backs would allow it.

So 66, all we can do is smile and except it

Now, just sit back and think about it

We are blessed to have reached our ancient years

Blessed enough to still have breathing friends

Remember what Cher once said about this accomplishment

Saying “sure beats the hell out of the alternative doesn’t it?”

So, if you can find a cake big enough for it, enjoy the glow of the candles.

Enjoy it girl if your mind can still think, for you will never be this young again!
