Autorickshaw Endurance

The one thousand kilometer long autorickshaw race is currently in progress in India now. Surely in Indian conditions, the hot or rainy weather at this time of the year, the condition of many of India's roads, the traffic and enduring all that in an autorickshaw makes this race totally insane or really interesting. That depends on your sense of adventure.

The BBC reports that there are many takers for this race and plenty of them from outside India! Personally, I think this a great idea. Almost everybody knows an autorickshaw or has taken a ride in one. There should be no problem associating with a race like this. I hope many more such ideas come up with regular frequency; peps up ordinary life in India!
