  1. Common lament by drivers has been that they have to accept requests before learning where trips will take them, or how profitable they will be
  2. Snapchat video of former Imam enjoying a Harley Davidson ride while wearing Western outfit takes over social media
  3. Going to a business school surely helps one in elevating management skills but not everyone needs a degree in finance and marketing to become an entrepreneur. Meet Chennai’s ‘Auto Anna’, an auto rickshaw driver who can give any start-up a stiff competition. Anna Durai has won everyone’s heart; including leaving Anand Mahindra in awe of his customer skills. His auto is equipped with free Wifi, newspapers, magazines, an iPad, refreshments and drinks stocked up in a mini fridge, and even an Amazon Echo to keep his customers fully entertained. If MBA students spent a day with him it would be a compressed course in Customer Experience Management. This man’s not only an auto driver… he’s a Professor of Management. @sumanmishra_1 let’s learn from him… https://t.co/Dgu7LMSa9K — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) January 22, 2022 While his ‘customer is king’ approach is right on point, Auto Anna is also doing his bit of moral work. He offers free rides to sanitation workers, doctors, teachers and nurses. Now one would wonder that he’d always be busy driving through town, to keep his routine streamlined and to ensure customer satisfaction, he has his own app and a website where one can book a ride. “There used to be a time when I would wait for them. But today, they wait for me,” he said in an interview with Better India. When he is not at work, he is busy preparing for management lectures at business schools, as he is a management guru for students looking for a practical example. View this post on Instagram He is also a TedX speaker and a walking pillar of hardwork cum success, who never shies away from sharing his mantra. So in case you are even in Chennai, then you might want to ditch the cab and meet Auto Anna instead! View the full article

  6. Amidst the chaos and a state of fear created by what is proving to be the deadly second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in India, there has hardly been any respite for the helpless people looking for hospital beds, medicines, and oxygen supply. © Dnaindia Sleepless and completely worn-out health care workers have been pushed beyond their physical and mental capacities in order to save the lives of patients across the nation. Now, in such dark times where there does not seem to be a glimmer of hope, we are repeatedly seeing people work for one another, be it through providing medical facilities through social media or through other ways. One such leading example of this is Ravi, an auto driver in Ranchi, Jharkhand, who is offering free rides for people visiting the hospitals under the coronavirus crisis. #COVID19 | An auto driver in Ranchi offers free rides to people who need to go to hospitals. (Images: ANI) pic.twitter.com/zOYIsQX72o — NDTV (@ndtv) April 23, 2021 As reported by ANI, Ravi has been providing free commuting to people since April 15. He says that he took the decision to carry out the noble deed after he saw a woman being refused a ride to the hospital by all the other drivers. When the woman approached him for help, he dropped her at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) facility, and since then has been helping anyone who needs a ride to the hospital free of cost. He says that he has also put his number on social media so that people can contact him when the need arises. “(I have been) doing this since April 15 when I dropped a woman at RIMS after everyone else refused. My number's on social media so people can contact me,” said Ravi. Following Ravi's heroic actions, social media users took to Twitter to express their admiration for him.

  10. The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders turned out to be quite the entertainer regardless of the fact that the latter lost by a massive 82 runs. This victory turned out to be the biggest for the Virat Kohli side against the two time IPL champions and helped RCB climb to the third spot in the league’s points table as well with 10 points in seven games. On the other hand, KKR are seated at the four spot with eight points and very much in contention for a playoff berth. After Match 28 of #Dream11IPL, @RCBTweets are now 3rd on the Points Table. pic.twitter.com/7i8hcUGUp6 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) October 12, 2020 However, the highlight of the match came through the bat of a legend named AB de Villiers, the former South African skipper who just can’t seem to realise that he is 36 years old, and continues to bat like a cricketer in his early 20s. Batting first after winning the toss, RCB came out with a lot of firepower and shared a 67-run opening partnership between Aaron Finch and Devdutt Paddikal. It was at the 94-run mark when de Villiers was required to approach the pitch and help his captain create a respectable total for Kolkata to chase. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@royalchallengersbangalore) In just 33 deliveries, the run-machine Protea smashed a ‘Man of the Match’ worthy 73-run-innings. During his unbeaten time at the pitch, he struck five 4s and six maximums, that had the hapless Sharjah citizens worried for their rides. In the 16th over of RCB’s batting, de Villiers hit a second six of his innings, a 85 metre beauty that’d zoom past the boundary rope, the stands, the roof of the stadium and onto the highway adjacent to the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

He’d hit another six in the same direction in the same over which also looked like a ‘car window breaker’ but was thankfully disrupted by one of the metal structures of the stadium and prevented the car owners any further loss. Fans watching the match live had some pretty hilarious comments on AB de Villiers’ injustice towards the Sharjah car owners: Instead of a car sponsorship, there should be a scar sponsorship here.#ABDevilliers #Bowlers — Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) October 12, 2020#ABDevilliers has led to increase in Car Insurance premium in Sharjah! @ABdeVilliers17 #RCB @RCBTweets @IPL #IPL #RCBvsKKR — Manish Batavia (@manishbatavia) October 12, 2020It seems, tomorrow there will be a queue in #Sharjah for special car insurance with 'hitting with cricket ball' clause!!#ABDevilliers you beauty....!! #PlayBold@RCBTweets @ABdeVilliers17 #Dream11IPL pic.twitter.com/20QH1qzZL1 — Jagdish R Chandra (@JagdishRChandra) October 12, 2020Poor Car owner #ABDevilliers #RCBvKKR #RCB pic.twitter.com/dB4FsR4arY — Youlackhatred12 (@youlackhatred12) October 12, 2020Car owner while passing through Sharjah Stadium #RCBvKKR #ABDevilliers #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/LArxcK04Oc — 🇮🇳HE_MANT mali (@GoyalHEMANT1) October 12, 2020 View the full article
  11. Auto Expo 2020 was in full swing this week with dozens of launches, concept car showcases and exciting new directions for the world of automotive engineering. While the lionâs share of podiums and presentations went to four-wheelers and exciting new concepts for Indian electric vehicles or EVs, the revolution has picked up immensely for two-wheelers as well. Dozens of scooters, motorcycles - even ATVs and trikes were displayed, all with zero emissions and the latest in electric motor technology. We met up with Hero Electric MD, Naveen Munjal, for a few insights into the horizons faced by electric vehicle manufacturers today. âWeâve introduced these new vehicles this time around to basically test the market - to see if there is a market for these kinds of products - how big the market is,â he explains. âSo far, the interest weâve been getting is amazing. We havenât quoted any kind of price right now, but people are coming out and telling us that the product is right for them.â © Sharan Sanil; The AE-47 Electric Sports Concept. Seems to take heavy design cues from Hondaâs CB300R. Hero decided to go all guns blazing for the concept vehicles they had on show - with the most powerful and interesting being the above-pictured AE-47. âThis motorcycle, for example, is taking on the premium segment as a high-performance vehicle capable of around 100-odd kmph and a range of around 80 to 120km, depending on usage,â continued Munjal. âThe model aims to target say, a customer who enters the EV market by buying a low-speed vehicle, and may want to graduate to a higher-speed motorcycle down the line. We donât want this customer to leave our ecosystem, unless they move on to an electric car which isnât our space as a company.â This is all indicative of long-term plans - both by manufacturers as well as buyers. With the recent shifts in government deadlines for vehicle makers, the pressure is on, to create not just an accessible and well-supported electric market - but to do so without intimidating customers. Several first-time potential buyers are faced with two kinds of teething issues with EVs today - charge time and what Munjal terms as ârange anxietyâ, referring to the worry that electric vehicles will run out of charge before reaching a destination. © Sharan Sanil; The AE-3 electric trike features a special gyroscopic sensor - it aims to help underconfident beginners and senior citizens feel planted, stable and confident on a traditional two-wheeler setup. âFor our current range of vehicles, we have all of them outfitted with portable batteries,â says Munjal, dismissing the former concern as unimportant. âEven if youâre living in an apartment block, you can take your battery home, charge it, plug it back in the next morning and go on for your commute. Anywhere, whether youâre going to your office or wherever - it fits into your lifestyle. You donât have to worry about having a charging station - that is immaterial.â âComing back to range anxiety, and people worrying about âwhat if [I run out of charge,]ââ explains Munjal, âweâve run experiments with our consumers where we provide (in some cities) 300 charging points in a 5km radius of their neighbourhoods. This helps them realise that if they do run out of charge, they can simply park and load their batteries. The sales in these areas have reflected an increase, showing that the initiative is working well for us - itâs about the comfort factor for our customers." If anything, the future for electric seems to be ever-morphing into the present. While most units on display were concepts, weâre assured that price and launch announcements will reach us sometime in 2020. In case you (like me) were interested in something a little more traditional and exciting, motorcyclists thronged around the Aprillia and Suzuki podiums, which featured some pretty incredible toys - although fan favourites such as KTM, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Triumph, Honda and more were decidedly absent. © Sharan Sanil; Aprilliaâs RSV4 Factory-Spec model is a V4 all-Italian stallion - many consider it to be the best-sounding motorcycle of todayâs modern superbike roster. © Sharan Sanil; Moto Guzziâs V85TT is another mid-size scrambler with exotic credentials and an unusual quirk unique to the company, with their trademark transverse V-twin powerplants. © Sharan Sanil; A cheeky view of the Suzuki Katana - an 80s-90s legacy model revived after over 20 years. This slick Japanese Sport Tourer turned heads and will hopefully make it onto Indian shores. © Sharan Sanil; Possibly the biggest draw for racing enthusiasts at the Expo, Suzuki surprised us by bringing their MotoGP machine as a guest of honour at their podium. However, despite the petrol and internal combustion charms of these awesome bikes, Munjal reflects on how a lithium-ion powered future is anything but boring. âElectric is exciting,â exclaims Munjal. âRight now, in a lot of cases weâre making an effort to just get butts on the seats. Once you ride it, youâll understand just how exciting a product it is - a lot of people otherwise form their own opinions - itâs about just trying it once, and then youâll get sold on it.â View the full article
  12. Whenever a woman steps onto the busy roads riding a bike in our country, itâs quite obvious that she will turn heads in the process. Well, Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha recently grabbed eyeballs when she rode a bullet to the sets of Kareena Kapoor Khan's chat show What Women Want. One of the photographers shared the video and you can see several shutterbugs running alongside the vehicle just to get a proper shot of the actress. A bodyguard is also seen asking other vehicles to maintain distance from Sinha on the road as she was waiting for the traffic light to turn green. Check out the video: View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@viralbhayani) Whenever fans see their favourite star, itâs bound to create chaos and when you are on the streets of Mumbai, people who have been to the city or have stayed there, will have an idea of the disruption it can cause. The actress got mixed reactions for her bike stunt on social media. While some hailed her stunt calling her âDabanggâ, some criticized her for compromising the safety of the commuters and creating a ruckus on the road. Check out the reactions here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Whatâs your take on this? Let us know in the comments section below. On the work front, Sonakshi's last major project was the 2018 film Dabangg 3, opposite Salman Khan. The film was a commercial hit with a collection of Rs 146 crore at the domestic box office. She also featured in the multi-starrer hit Mission Mangal last year. The film also starred Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Kirti Kulhari, Taapsee Pannu and Nithya Menen. It was also a massive hit with a collection of Rs 202 crore, domestically. She was also seen in Kalank and Khandaani Shafakhana. View the full article
  13. Before we sat in one of these app-powered vehicles which are convenient to book through your phone, we had the luxury of travelling in autorickshaws, welcoming the wind blowing through our hair, with an ounce of dust powdering our face at the same time. Yes, autos were a mere blessing for most of us who'd commute to distances which weren't plausible to make with any other form of public transport, before Olas and Ubers took over that landscape. Even now, auto's are quite agile in getting us from A-Z but because of cab companies making things a little easier for most commuters, people don't really hail autos as much as they used to. Which obviously gives the auto driver the need to hike prices and obviously treat the rickshaw meter like a showpiece. © BCCL Apart from that, another new trend has slowly been setting in at metropolitan cities where autos are largely driven: The auto bhaiya's dismissal on making a particular journey. If the destination you utter to him doesn't suit the distance he wants to cover, then he says 'no', very nonchalantly might I add, and carries on, leaving the commuter in quite a pickle. Yes, that's been happening, especially in cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru and hence, it was time for the police to intervene in the same. To stop auto rickshaw drivers from saying a blatant 'no' to their passengers, the Bengaluru cops dressed as civilians and hailed autos, all across the city. The crackdown happened because way too many people were complaining about being ripped off by the autowalahs and denied rides. Earlier this week, 250 traffic cops, dressed as civilians, pretended to be passengers, seeking rides from auto drivers. They obviously caught the auto drivers red handed, breaking rules such as denying the passenger a ride, or charging them extra despite the fact that its mandated to drive the vehicle on fare, by meter, according to the law. © BCCL The cops managed to catch almost 5,200 drivers and collected penalties which went as high as Rs 8 lakhs. Out of the ones who were caught, 1,575 were booked for refusing to take the passenger, 1,346 were caught for overcharging and more than 2,000 were caught for driving without a driver's license or having improper documents. There is a reason why people have switched to other modes of transport like cabs and buses because auto drivers are known to fleece people now. An auto fare sometimes sums up to, or is more than a cab fare and that really shouldn't be the case, since autos don't offer the kind of luxury cabs do, to passengers. The cops had taken a similar initiative back in July in Bengaluru, where around 9,000 auto drivers were caught red-handed breaking the rules. “These drives are important. Because of some auto drivers who over charge, all auto drivers get a bad name and people prefer Uber/Ola cabs instead of autos. This results in less business for us,” Narayan Swamy, President of Adarsh Auto Driver Union in Bengaluru, told a popular Indian publication. © BCCL If there are more crackdowns in other cities in India, of how autos operate then we are sure taking an auto will be a lot more convenient without the drivers denying anyone a ride. So, here's hoping Delhi and Mumbai are next in line and we can have faith in our autorickshaws once again. View the full article
  14. The recent brutal gang-rape of a 27-year-old has once again raised the question of women's safety in our country. Travelling alone at night for women in India is a big concern and Ludhiana Police has launched a scheme where a woman can avail a free ride back home in a police vehicle at night. The multiplying number of sexual assaults and robberies in the country has forced many women to quit their jobs due to security reasons. The scheme was launched by the Commissioner of Police Rakesh Agarawal in Ludhiana on Sunday. © BCCL According to Times Of India, Rakesh Agarwal said, “We have two dedicated helpline numbers, 1091 and 7837018555, for women's help. They work 24×7. Women can dial these to get a free ride to their home in Ludhiana. A control room vehicle, nearby PCR vehicle or the SHO vehicle will reach where you are and drop you at your destination safely,” he added. © BCCL The police have also launched an app 'Shakti' for women that'll help women reach out to police just by clicking the help button. The app has an SOS button and in one click, women can update their current location to 10 contacts and a message will also be sent to the nearest PCR. The app has been launched on the play store and has been downloaded by 2500 women last month. We think this is a great initiative by Ludhiana Police and should be considered by other states all across India. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

  15. A few months ago, people had a field day on social media when #JCBKiKhudai was trending on Twitter. The hashtag went viral for a very bizarre reason. The first video that was shared on Twitter and made this trend viral was captioned, "Reason why #jcbkikhudayi is trending." The video showed a groom arriving at his wedding on a JCB excavator, with his swag absolutely intact. Since then, the yellow machine became people's favourite, and started trending on social media. However, JCB has hit the headlines once again, and this time for other unimaginable reason. Lorry mechanic and motorcycle racer Guy Martin rode the JCB tractor (modified) at a whopping speed of 217 Km/h. And, we are not kidding! According to Guinness World Record website, Martin initially broke the record by attaining a new record of 166.79 Km/h before going faster by reaching 217 km/h. Martin told Guinness World Records, "There is some good folk there and they said about this idea of building the world's fastest tractor. So I said 'if you want it piloting give us a shout' and that's where it came about.” "I turned up this morning and had a look round. I went around [an area to the side of the runway] to get my eye in and get a feel for how it drives and what the clutch is like,” he added. The racer also said, "It can't turn tight as it hasn't got a differential in the back axle. So just get used to how the gears change, how the engine behaves because it's fairly sluggish low down until the turbo comes in.” © Youtube/Guinness World Records According to the website, the standard engine has been replaced with a modified JCB engine producing power over 1,000 hp. Also, a new six-speed transmission and a smaller, more aerodynamic cab has been installed. Besides, other modifications include a new aluminium bonnet, additional bodywork such as front bumper, side panniers, rear diffuser, underbody pan and a lighter chassis. The modified version is designed and built by a young team of engineers at the agricultural manufacturer's headquarters in Staffordshire, as per the reports. It just looks like a tractor but it isn't the regular tractor that you see on the farming fields. Moreover, Martin was recognised by the Guinness World Records earlier for the fastest man to travel on a gravity-powered snow sled (83.49mph set in 2014), fastest soapbox (85.61 mph also set in 2014) and to ride a motorbike on the horizontal wall of death at 78.15mph in 2016. Guy Martin isn't new to the drill. He's known for racing in the most dangerous motorcycle race on Earth, 'Isle Of Man TT'. He used to be a truck mechanic before making a career in racing and then later in Television. View the full article
  16. They say free goodies always taste better than the stuff we have to pay for. That isn't always true, though. When life gives us lemons, no matter how costless they might be, the lemonade still tastes like shit. So, earlier today when the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that women in the national capital will be 'entitled' to free rides on Delhi Metro, DTC and cluster buses, the announcement left a sour taste in our mouth (pun intended). A large number of female commuters who use public transportation on a regular basis are thrilled by this news, while others are also concerned about the chaos this would unleash, with problems stemming from overcrowding and people management on buses and metros. © Twitter However, that being said, at first glance, it does seem like a great move to encourage more women to use public transportation, but we fail to fathom how this is going to better the pressing issues related to women's safety in the state? Giving every woman free access to metro and buses in no way helps ensure that women will really be safe from abuse, molestation or rape. In fact, it only makes them more vulnerable to other kinds of inconvenience such as theft and difficulties that arise from overcrowding. Women might still get stalked, cat-called and assaulted once they get off the metro and buses, so, sorry, but Kejriwal's reasoning behind this 'free ride' move does nothing to endure women's safety. © Twitter Yet, the major question still remains: Are 'special' privileges the only way of ensuring women's safety? “I remember when the women's compartment was introduced on metros, men seem to hate the special treatment women received, and have often lashed out at women who travel in the general compartments 'despite having an entire compartment to themselves'. Thanks, but we can pay for our rides, spare us the chaos,” says 28-year-old Dutee. The overarching sentiment shared by women who can afford to pay for the tickets is that this step is unnecessary for a number of reasons. However, for those who may not be as privileged, this surely comes as a great relief and there is no denying that fact. Regardless of the money in their pockets, women will now be able to get from one place to another without being bothered by the monetary aspects (especially in times of dire need). Now women can travel free of cost in Delhi metro and DTC bus...there was already reserved seats everywhere for women....I don't understand what kind of equality is this between men and women?..Then why everyone said that लडà¤à¤¾ लडà¤à¥ à¤à¤ समान?? — pranav sangal (@pranavsangal4) June 3, 2019 34-year-old Neetu, who works as a house help in South Delhi, wasn't even aware that something of the sort is in the pipeline for Delhi women. But once she was informed, she was beyond relieved and said, “I avoid taking the metro unless I really have to, and the same goes for AC buses. But if this new rule really comes to pass, I won't have to think twice before taking them when I am travelling long distances within the city. It would make life so easy. I hope they can make it happen.” These are two diverse sets of female commuters who hit the roads every day and have different standpoints on Kejriwal's proposal, which will reportedly take another three months to get implemented. While there are genuine pros and cons to this proposal presented by the AAP government, there is no denying that another segment of women are still questioning why women 'always' have to be given special benefits for their “safety”, which again takes away from the larger movement towards equality. © Twitter “This will set back womenfolk and the feminist movement in the country yet again. We need better and stronger ways of safeguarding women's security. Special incentives do nothing more than make men loathe women for “all the things they get easily” and “get away with” simply because they belong to a particular gender,” observes Snigdha, a college student who regularly uses public transport. On certain levels, this somehow also reeks of vote-bank politics by the AAP government. After failing to bag even a single Lok Sabha seat in the recently concluded elections, this almost seems like a desperate move by the Kejriwal government to get into the good books of the female population in Delhi. What for? Are we Delhi Women not considered capable enough to pay for tickets? Is this empowerment in your understanding??! Delhi Metro, bus rides likely to be free of cost for women - India News https://t.co/cdAX2YVXlu — Pragya Rathore (@pragsrats) June 2, 2019 We certainly wish the Kejriwal government could come out with more concrete ways to deal with the vital issue of women's safety in the city. While this might help to a certain extent, the impending chaos is almost palpable. We wonder if this move to warm up to women in the region will help AAP in salvaging its sorry state of affairs, ahead of the State Assembly Elections in 2020.
