1. You no longer get screwed on the price of a rickshaw.
And won’t get in one until you can bargain it down for the right price. Two hundred rupees to go ten minutes through Chennai? Um no, 30 will do.
2. You can cross the road in Delhi without any hesitation.
From Delhi to Trivandrum to tiny mountain villages, there are rickshaws, cars, buses and trucks coming at you from every direction. But that’s okay now, you can strut your way to the other side of the road for a cup of chai, no problem.
