Definition

Machinery and vehicles are blessed during Dusshera festival time or when someone buys a brand new car they bless it using incense, kumkum, and often they run the car over 4 limes placed under the tires. This event is called by urbanites as CAR POOJA.

Usage

Deven telling his friend Rajesh about their neighbours new car.
"Sukhram got another new car yesterday. This one is white BMW. I saw them doing car pooja outside their house. I think he must be eating a lot of bribes at the Electricity Board as he gets a new car every 6 months."
