When I saw the news of Hyderabad RailMetro inaugural today, got reminded of my childhood, as a nursery kid commuted to school through a rickshaw, then an auto rickshaw while in high school, then by bus in college, later on, to a chauffeur driven car to office.

Excited for the new mode of transport we all have been waiting for quite some time, and nostalgic about the unlimited memories I hold of the auto rickshaw rides and “autowallas”(auto drivers) of Hyderabad.
