Meter-less in Tamil Nadu…


India is indeed a land of variety. At one end we have weird arithmetics ruling the meter system in an auto rickshaw while at the other end, its all intuitive calculation of distance that decides the price.

Autorickshaw ride

This trip in an auto was followed by a memorable trip, to “mark a remarkable” end to 2007. The journey from Salem to Bangalore that day, on a rickety bus (living up to how Ruskin Bond described it once, in every sense) with a D”u”d player, was truly “religious”, thanks to the movie on Lord Shiva acted by Shivaji Ganeshan!
