Happy Auto, a must have app for Bangloreans, by Bangalore Traffic Police!

How many times have you been harassed by an Auto driver, how many times have you been overcharged? In Bangalore, people with no private vehicles go through this a couple of times each and every day. There is nothing anyone can do, even the Traffic police puts a blind eye on this most of the time.

Well, here is a step forward to ease things up. An Android app - Happy Auto. Go to the link on your Android phone, download it, and register your phone number. And then, you can rate every Auto ride you take in Bangalore! If you rate them good enough, the Auto Driver gets certain goodies from the Bangalore Traffic Police!(Yes you heard that right). They also will provide "Happy Auto" stickers, which in turn will help commuters to identify the "Good" auto-rickshaws! A brilliant, and much needed initiative in my opinion. Here is the screenshot of the feedback you can give for an Auto-Rickshaw

Hope, that's making me blog again! #HopeProject

It's been over an year since I jotted down a word on this blog. Not that I didn't want to, but I was too lazy to fetch content, put it into words, and then spread the word. I was more into wasting time, working, playing video games, watching series(Friends and now Breaking Bad). I'm still doing it, but something made me do this today.

I happened to attend the Milaap IndiBlogger Meet today. What is that? I had no idea till today noon, except that I'd have some fun with fellow bloggers. My usual partner decided not to go for this meet, so I was doubtful on whether to go for it. But then, it was again a lazy weekend and I wanted to do something.

I reached the venue, which was Microsoft Research India Labs, and had the usual faces of Vineet and Karthik greeting at the doors. There was also the cute lady photographer of IndiBlogger making rounds at the reception(Hope I'm not getting into trouble for this ;) ). I took my seat, and the crowd was looking a more serious and focused one compared to the #SoakNoMore and Office365 meets.

Then came in the Zombie, with an ever energetic mic to start-up things. Not including the details of the meet in here, I'm writing this for another cause.

A particular line by Zombie opened my eyes - "... with #IndiChange, we are making change, and we want to grow the sense of Social responsibility along with the each individual system... "
