Like I said, I am not objecting to luxury.I am not breaking any traffic laws or anything of that sort. I need the tinted windows because I have slight social anxiety and distracts me while driving, a lot of people tend to look inside the car - that is why. I'm proud to say I have never been involved in overspeeding or any other traffic violations, nor have I had any accident so far. What is the perceived lack of class you're referring to? I can't seem to understand.
If my country is blighted by such poverty it certainly does not have anything to do with how I drive a Bentley and how that contributes to its poverty. I pay my taxes, donate as much as I can and I am a law abiding citizen just like anyone else. And mind you this Bentley was bought as a business asset, to be used for a luxury car rental business - it would have been just sitting there and collecting dust because it wasn't making a profit, would that have been a better option?
As long as you provide value to the society, you are entitled to as much luxury as you want. Give and take. Why object to that?
What I object to is your seeming arrogance and attitude that you are above the law. You "do pretty much whatever you like" and smoking marijuana, while the police turn a blind eye to it because you are driving a Bentley. Do you think there is a reason why you have never been given a ticket, perhaps because you are driving that Bentley? Do you think that there is a reason why marijuana is a controlled substance?
Maybe you are too naive to realise it but this sort of corruption from the authorities is what is bleeding India and damaging its growth. Of course it happens in all countries, but the problem in India is particularly profound, and you are playing an active part in it. You are contributing to it and damaging society. So don't use the fact that you give to charity to hide that.
