You can’t keep a good Mumbaiite down, and many responded to the autorickshaw strike on Wednesday with considerable good humour.

Some were defiant and determined to see the silver lining.

Other couldn’t help but cheerily point out the irony. The strike was called to demand stricter regulation of app-based aggregator services like Ola and Uber, but that’s precisely where most commuters turned when the three-wheelers went off the streets.

In a nutshell, the message was clear: leave the surge complaints to us and get back on the road.
