A few days back near my vicinity, I saw an auto-rickshaw, which did catch my attention, and I just saw the back of it and knew that there was someone special riding this auto. Here is a glimpse of the rear of his auto:
And yes I looked inside the Auto and all that is written in the back is available, plus his photos with a lot of people. He has also kept a donation box, now you might wonder why donation, well he told me that he feeds kids on the streets and cancer patients are also given certain medicines.
Now why bare foot, well since his mother expired in 2004 he stopped wearing any footwear. If you also see carefully the tail lamps have been guarded by a grill, for which he said “Mumbai mein accidents hote hai aur faltu ka kharcha hota hai, is liye safety” (In Mumbai accidents happen frequently thus the safety)
He also told me something that shocked me a lot, He uses technology a lot, he is using and is the only one in Mumbai to have:
1. Facebook : Sandeep Bachche
2. Twitter : sandeepbachche
3. You can Call, Watsapp and We chat on: +91-9920-780-030
He also told me that he is a speaker at a lot of events, but since this year he said he has started charging Rs. 11,001/- so as to help more people via this income. It is only for those outside Mumbai.
He has been awarded 7 times by various authorities. He also helps the senior citizens and handicapped by providing almost 33% discount on the regular fare. His auto serves you tea, water, Newspapers, Mobile charger, P.C.O. , L.C.D., fire extinguisher, plus for every donations you have to pick a small chocolate.
And he is Sandeep Bachhe a resident of Mumbai Suburbs. And after all this another big moment, he has spoken at TEDx
He is also a big follower of Sai Baba and a huge fan of Sanjay Dutt. This was just a 5 to 10 minute stint I had with him. He only rides the Auto during the day.
He has also kept a valentine offer on 14th Feb, 10% discount for couples only 🙂
