Turning to nature, Mahindra Kumar has created a “roof garden” at the top of his motorized rickshaw, and as a result, even as temperatures reach 45°C in the national capital, the thick green patch keeps Kumar’s vehicle cool.

His “moving garden” attracts customers who stop and click pictures or take videos as they ride inside the auto-rickshaw. From shrubs to flowers, Kumar has grown a variety of 20 crops and is believed to be doing his “own little things” for the environment. He obtained the seeds from acquaintances and from the side of the road and planted them in a motorized bicycle after placing a mat and some soil on its surface.

According to Kumar, his fellow drivers were asking him for tips to impress customers.

“About two years ago I had this idea during the height of the summer season. I thought if I could grow some plants on the roof, it would keep my car cool and relieve my passengers from the heat,” 48-year-old Kumar said in an interview with AFP.

In fact, apart from the green, Kumar fixed two small radiators and fans inside his car. Now, the guy has already put in a lot of effort and innovation.

Kumar, a father of three, said he gets extra tips because of his “great customer service”.

“Now it is like a normal air conditioner. My passengers were so happy after the flight that they wouldn’t mind paying me an extra 10-20 bucks.”
