The clip shared by Mahindra featured the vehicle for a Tuk Tuk driver but it was not your standard rickshaw. The fascinating thing about this new model was that by setting up partitions, it allowed all the passengers to follow the distancing.

The driver was tremendously impressed by the chairman of the Mahindra group and he also tagged Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director-Auto and Farm Sectors, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. He asked to hire the driver as an advisor.

He captioned the clip: "The capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate and adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me. @rajesh664 we need to get him as an advisor to our R&D and product development teams!"

The video shows how the Tuk Tuk driver had used covers for his passengers to segregate the rickshaw into five parts. This way every passenger, including him, could sit in a designated space without touching the other person. How amazing this is!
