I was late. I pushed my way through the crowd to reach the AFC gate before them. Swiftly I made my way to the auto rickshaw stand near the Botanical Garden Metro Station. As I was approaching, I shouted in routine, "Amity" and the driver pointed me to the auto which had one passenger waiting for someone to share the ride with him.

On my recent trip to Mumbai for Indiblogger's BNLF 2015, I had way too many opportunities to use cab services such as Ola and Uber and I did. On one such ride, I noticed something very odd and that is what I'm going to talk about today.I was in an Ola Cab, I don't remember which one it was from the so many that I took in those two days.
