Sandeep Bacche is an auto rickshaw driver in Mumbai and has been for the last 15 years. So what's the big deal?
He also happens to be a philanthropist. For starters, the minute you sit in his auto, you'd realise that it isn't anything like a regular auto. It looks like any other auto rickshaw from the outside, but the minute you sit, you'll realise it isn't. It's a fully-loaded machine.
With an STD Payphone fitted in his auto, Sandeep has also installed a television and free Wi-Fi in his auto for commuters to use. Then there's also the fact that Bacche writes down the day's weather forecast, and stock market updates on a board in the auto. You'll also find the day's newspapers available to you for reading. But there's more…
He also writes out birthday wishes for celebrities, carries a first-aid kid, and has decorated his auto with posters that offer great advice like, 'Save Girl Child First', and 'Stop Pollution'. Trying to change the world one step at a time.
And if all this wasn't enough to get him famous. There's also the fact that Sandeep Bacche is very charitable.
On a board in his auto, Sandeep mentions that the elderly, handicapped, and newly married couples can ride the auto for half the rate. And there's even a small donation box. All the donations made in Sandeep's auto go to a cancer relief, which may have something to do with the fact that his mother happened to have cancer. Plus, you get free candy for making a donation.
Ever heard of the phrase 'Charity begins at home'? This is what it looks like!
