One Minute HERO: Gandhian On Wheels

Uday Jadhav is an autorickshaw driver, but he and his auto are nowhere similar to any other auto rickshaws in India. He’s a man who lives by Gandhi’s principles and his auto-rickshaw is no different. He comes from a middle-class family with a load of responsibilities. He drives his auto-rickshaw on the concept of gift economy—pay-want- you-want. The rate meter always reads zero because of this concept. He pins badges with smileys on everyone who sits in his auto-rickshaw. His auto-rickshaw has such features which are not even available in a cab. He provides the passengers with food to eat, water to drink, magazine or books to read, music to hear, a fan for summers and the best of all—a dustbin so that the streets remain clean.
