In Mumbai, every time we go to the airport, we call Premchand Yadav, the taxi wallah (taxi driver). He’s always somewhere nearby and eagerly volunteers to pick us up.
En route to the airport after my last trip, he passionately shared his perspective about the life of taxi drivers. I was surprised at his openness and pulled out my flip video to record some of what he said. Just love listening to his brand of Hindi. Amazing guy!
Nota Bene: I tired of subtitling. Ooof! If you do read the subtitles, I suggest you go over the video a second time and just watch Yadav-ji’s intonations, expressions and the scenery along the road. Videos have so many layers of information to glean. And please share your thoughts about taxi drivers in general.
