Bengaluru: Nidhi Agarwal, a Bengaluru-based professional, has recently shared a heartwarming encounter she had with an auto-rickshaw driver in a post on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), which has now gone viral.
Through her post, Agarwal introduced the world to Baskar, an auto-rickshaw driver, who is on an extraordinary journey to pursue higher education by attempting his English paper as part of his Pre-University Course (PUC) exams.
Agarwal's post shed light on Baskar's determination to continue his education despite dropping out of school in 1985. Accompanied by a photograph of the auto driver, her post read, "Introducing Baskar ji, my @Olacabs auto companion today. He faced his English paper today, he is writing PUC exams this year after clearing 10th in 1985. Father of two, with kids in 3rd and 6th grade. His enduring smile was truly motivating!"
This inspiring narrative of Baskar's commitment to education has resonated with countless individuals across the internet. Since its posting, the tweet has garnered 1,300 views and continues to garner attention and admiration.
This heartening account adds to the string of noteworthy stories emerging from Bengaluru, often referred to as India's IT city. Earlier, a video featuring an auto-rickshaw driver in Bengaluru surfaced, depicting his emotional breakdown due to low wages. The video suggested that he was adversely affected by the free bus rides offered by the Congress government in Karnataka.
Bengaluru consistently showcases remarkable tales of determination and aspiration. In March, another incident caught the attention of social media users when a Twitter user shared a post about an Uber autorickshaw driver aspiring to become a YouTube influencer, intending to create videos on personal finance.
