Humane face of Delhi auto-driversGenerally the residents of Delhi don't have very good relationship with the auto-drivers. There are various reasons behind this uneasy relationship. The auto-drivers aren't willing to go by the meter. In many cases, their meters have been found defective. They refuse to go to many places. They charge exhorbitantly at night. Moreover, every newcomer has had bitter experience about the auto-drivers of Delhi. Like other residents of Delhi, I also don't like the auto-drivers plying their vehicles in the city.
However, yesterday I had a novel experience. I am sharing this with the Members of ISC. Just beside our office, there is a Post Office. Many elderly persons come to this Post Office for various purposes, especially to check their saving or other deposit accounts or to withdraw penion. Yesterday, a very old lady came out of the Post Office. The lady had been using a special type of walking stick and she was evidently having pain to walk. Immediately when the lady came on the road, at least five auto-drives came and tried to help the lady. The lady was astonished to find so many auto-drviers trying to help her. This was definitely a new experience for her also. Ultimately a Sardarji took her to her residence at Greater Kailash.
I am really impressed by observing the humane face of the Delhi auto-drivers.
