November 20 : After quitting her acting career, Twinkle Khanna ventured into different businesses. She started her interior decor company and production house, churning out the National Award-winning film Padman. She is also a best-selling author and a popular newspaper columnist. In September this year, Twinkle launched Tweak India, a digital media platform for women. Since then Twinkle has been promoting the digital platform extensively on her social media accounts.
Today, Twinkle took to her Instagram handle and shared a picture showing an auto-rickshaw, decorated with pots of green plants. A washbasin and a desk monitor can also be seen inside the auto-rickshaw. Twinkle used the picture as a teaser for a story on her Tweak India platform, as she wrote, “Equipped with a window garden, washbasin, and a desktop monitor, this genius Mumbai rickshaw belongs in the jugaad Hall of Fame. Read the story...on our @tweakindia...Have you spotted or better still, taken a ride in Kamal Govil’s ‘chakachak Mumbai’ rickshaw? Share your best #jugaad stories via comments below.”
This unique auto-rickshaw belongs to Mumbai’s Kamal Govil, who likes to call it ‘Mumbai ka Favourite Auto-rickshaw’. He markets it as ‘Mumbai’s First Home
System Rickshaw: Take Airplane Ride Experience’, which is printed at the back of his auto-rickshaw. The rickshaw is equipped with a washbasin, liquid soap and a mirror for the commuters to wash their hands or even freshen up. The plants are kept to bring the commuters closer to nature and keep their minds calm. This unique picture was sent to Tweak India by two residents of Mumbai, Kushal Mamoowala and Sarah DaCosta. They were encouraged by one of actor Akshay Kumar’s post on his respective Instagram handle, where he shared a picture of a similar auto-rickshaw that he had spotted. He captioned it as: “A little bit of green to take away your blues. Came across this pleasant sight of an auto-rickshaw covered with plants on the way to shoot today...”
Twinkle also encourages her readers to send pictures of anything unique they spot, which she calls “jugaad stories”.
