NEXT time when you are traveling to a destination, don’t forget to ride Annadurai’s auto rickshaw. Why do you ask? Because his auto rickshaw is not like the usual three-wheeler transport that only has handlebar controls, rear view mirror and a fare meter.
The 32-year-old Annadurai who drives an auto rickshaw in Chennai has made interesting additions in his auto to provide a world class experience to his passengers.
Hailing from Thanjavur district, Annadurai has been driving an auto-rickshaw in Chennai for the last 12 years. Famously known by the name ‘Auto Anna’, his specialized auto features a newspaper and magazine section, an iPad, a charging point, a card machine, a hand sanitiser and masks.

Moreover, he offers free rides to teachers, doctors, nurses and sanitization workers.
Interestingly, Annadurai is also a 7-time TedEx speaker. His efforts to win over customers has also caught the eye of industrialist Anand Mahindra who has called Auto Anna a “professor of management”.
