Few days back we told you the story of this wicked auto-rickshaw driver who troubled a foreigner in Hyderabad. However, this story will restore your faith in this transport service.
A girl from Banaglore, Ranjani Shanker, shared her story on Facebook few days back that went viral instantly. She booked an auto using an app, however, she was scared as hell listening to the recent tragedies across India that involved auto-rickshaw drivers.
She writes: “He told me that the location I’ve asked for doesn’t allow autos in the suggested route, and so we’d have to take a different route. Naturally, I was scared.”
A ride of more than 30 mints with him wasn’t easy for this girl, that too in the outskirts of the city. But what happened next is surprising.
She writes: “He waited 20 minutes with me until my friend arrived, crossed the road with me and ensured I got in safe.”
Claps for this gentleman whose name is Ghasamfar Ali!
Ranjani writes in her FB post: “What overwhelmed me was not how well he did his job, but that he was a decent human being who knew that safety is a single woman traveler’s biggest concern.”
