He also took to his personal blog to share the ‘tale behind this tale’. His blog reads, “In one of my earlier Blog posts, there had been mention of our first family car, in Allahabad .. it was then the Ford Prefect .. and that was it ..”
“He (Anant) had read the Blog , where there had been mention of that first car the Ford Prefect .. so after this years’ 26/11 event he has after months been able to trace and track a Ford Prefect, of the same model, got it fixed and workable, had it painted and drove it to my house to gift it to me .. even the number plate he had fixed for the moment .. the 2882 was the number of that first car of ours !!.” wrote Amitabh.
Then he went on to express his gratitude for this gift by writing, “This is an incredible gesture .. No one has EVER .. EVER .. done anything like this for me .. ! I am so overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion .. Have been struggling to put this moment in words or even to express my thanks to him and his family ..Thank you Anant .. for all you continue to do for me .. and the love and affection that you so generously give ..”.
