Honest Taxi Driver Returns Tourist’s Belongings
Australian student, Leanne Truong, riding in a cab from Dadar to Colaba, with the taxi driver, Rakesh Tiwari. Soon after she met her friends in Colaba, she realized that her belongings had been left behind in the cab. She managed to contact him over his cell phone and, with the help of hotel staff, conveyed her plight. By this time, Tiwari was on a train, on his way home. Without any thought of the inconvenience it would cause him, he got off the train and returned to Churchgate to look for her possessions, in his cab. In no time at all, he was back where he had dropped her earlier, along with her belongings. With this single act of selflessness, he gave India’s reputation for hospitality.
