The city of Bangaluru(hope I got the spelling right) has taught me a lot of things. But the most important lesson I have learnt so far is the versatility of the auto rickshaw or as our brothers,the south Indians, would call it - the aato. Move over Ferraris and Lambhorghinis, the aato is here to take over the world!
I have found the following to be true about them :
1. the fastest way out of a traffic jam is traveling in an auto (of course, the fastest way to get anywhere in Bengaluru is to walk :|)
2. on the rare occasion of finding a traffic-free road, the auto-driver will provide an adventurous, nerve -jarring,life-threatening, back-breaking, high-speed ride. Well, if all you wanted was a safe ride home....u MORON!why did you get into it?!
4. lastly, who can ever do that(see pic) with any other vehicle on earth?!
I was traveling in the auto when it ran out of fuel and the driver flagged down another auto and towed it to the nearest petrol bunk, which was a good 2 kms away with his FOOT!
