Default Pics: Modded Autorickshaw in Bangalore

He has got a pager, a mobile, a WLL phone. No, he is not a software
engineer who left accenture and joined SAP Labs. He is an autorickshaw driver. And he has all these gadgets in his auto. There are other facilities too - slots for magazines and news papers, a digital display board which displays train timings, headlines etc. And to top all that the chap is really polite and courteous. These are the people that make Bangalore city
interesting.


_Have any of you guys travelled in it?_

Well what do you know!! Most of the autorickshaws in Bangalore have a crude version of "freeflow"

But, that is a real neat find vinsanity!
