Mangalore, July 27: Creativity does not have any limits. Creativity lies in everyone, but making use of it really matters. Did you come across any unusual writings on the rear end of any auto rickshaw? I am sure you may have seen them in large numbers in Mangalore and around.
Many of these auto drivers have craze for such writings. When I came across such writings, I wondered to see the creativity of the writer. Even uneducated auto drivers paint their creativity on their auto rickshaw. Let us enjoy some of them!
An auto rickshaw at PVS circle says, ‘Leave me alone’. When asked the driver, he said, he does not want any other vehicle hit his auto and that is why he framed it like that. What an idea Sirjee!
One says, ‘Crazy Guys’, the driver says he is crazy of friendship and many of his friends are of same mentality. Hence the name Crazy guys.
An auto at Bunts Hostel, framed it as ‘Bolarda Mutthu’ and I thought as he loves his rickshaw very much he calls it a pearl. But actually the driver said, his mother’s name is Mutthu and she lives in Bolar. That is why his rickshaw says ‘Bolarda Mutthu’!
A rickshaw at Milagres Cross road read ‘Aar Yes’. Isn’t it strange to read? The driver says, it represents the letters of the rickshaw owner couple! R S!
‘Puralda Kural’, the rickshaw opposite to City Centre said. When asked, driver said, ‘He is from Pural, a place near Polali and Kural because, the temple at Pural every year celebrates Kural parba, which is famous throughout the area. Isn’t it interesting?
The City Centre Rickshaw had ‘Kudla da Ter’, driver said; he is a fan of Darshan who acted in the film ‘Sarathi’. Sarathi means the chariot driver. Since the auto driver resides in Kudla (Mangalore), he wrote it as ‘Kudla da Ter’ and he himself imagines being Darshan! Strange but true.
Like these, there are so many other wordings one can see throughout Karavali region. Among those, ’13 mera 7′ (Thera Mera Saath!), ‘Prithi uppad’ (Love always), ‘Bale Cha parka’ (calling for tea, a famous Tulu drama by Devdas Kapikad), ‘Amma’ (Mother) might have grabbed one’s attention.
There is a reason behind a name that reflects in the rickshaw. Hardly one can come across rickshaw which does not have bear a name at all.
