"I don't focus on money. My only focus is on customer satisfaction." - Annadurai, an auto driver
Today, I am sharing the story of an extraordinary human. He is an auto driver from Chennai and a very down to earth person. Do you know why we are talking about him again and again?
Just read this story, and you'll get to know the reality.
In Chennai, people of Old Mahabalipuram road especially wait for this fantastic auto to pick them up. Yay, Annadurai not an ordinary auto rickshaw. This auto comes with the exceptional abilities including a laptop, tablets, free WiFi, magazines and much more things.
He also provides the unbelievable offers to his customers. He gives free rides to teachers on special occasions. Same for all the lovers on Valentines Day, to all mothers on Mothers Day and more.
You can find WiFi, 40+ magazines and approx ten newspapers, a laptop, a tablet, an iPad Pro, m-Visa and a card punching machine. He also recharges the sim cards if you need it.
Annadurai takes care of what people need and what he should add in his rickshaw. He is extraordinarily amazing. I would love to meet him personally and learn more from his experiences.
Annadurai has recently launched an app known as "Amazing Auto," and it helps people in tracking the location of the auto and alerts them accordingly. He will release the iOS version very soon; you can try the app from play store if you live in that area.
He starts working at around 8 AM in the morning till 12 PM and then from 5 PM to 11 PM on a typical day. Initially, other auto drivers in his area did not seem to welcome his idea, but now they have their respect for him. Everybody salutes him for his dedication.
The main issue with us is, we give up just because of taunts and negative results, but he never gave up on his dreams. I'm adding this again, never give up mates, never.
"I am first and foremost a high school dropout. I think a lot and try to do them. Some of my doings are the reason for you to be reading about me. The most important thing which I believe in is "Athiti Devo Bavah." - Anna described himself.
Annadurai has his website, and an FB page called 'Amazing Auto' which has over 10,000 followers already. He has now emerged as an entrepreneur and goes to corporate gatherings to deliver inspirational speeches. He has conducted two TED talks, he inspires people by his speeches and work.
"Customers prefer to experience luxury these days. I must keep myself upgraded accordingly".
"A lot of things have changed today, except for the auto. Most auto rickshaws are the same as they were decades ago and there is no improvement. I want to bring a change in this area…", says Anna.
He also has been featured in short inspirational stories.
Annadurai another example of dedication and hard work, Why you are thinking like a loser? Don't loose hope, just contribute the best in your life.
