On the eve of the Independence Day I want to extend this special thanks to a Bangalore Auto driver. I took this auto this morning to reach to work. On the back of his seat he had 3 photos pasted. The first pic was of Shiva Parvati and Ganesh, second one was an image of the Mecca and the third one was of Jesus Christ. I asked him if it was him who has pasted those pics, he gave a wide smile and said “Yes Madam, all same no madam.”

Dear Putta Muniyappa,

Holder of three wheeler driving license number 2628/06, Bangalore, I want to thank you for restoring my faith in the peaceful soul that a common man of this nation carries. This independence day I salute that common heart which is not biased, which respects all religion equally and above all the one which hasn’t learnt to hate.

Unfortunately I couldn’t take a pic of the seat so I thought of doing a bit of my own creativity. The picture says it all. Wishing you all Happy Independence day, Vande Maataram.
