The e-rickshaw is modified to include four separate seating compartments.

Business tycoon Anand Mahindra is known for sharing posts showing how people across the globe use innovative techniques to simplify day to day tasks. His recent tweet shows one such idea. Someone modified their regular e-rickshaw to accommodate the social distancing needs people have in this day and age. Mahindra shared a video of this unique vehicle, not only praising the idea but also writing how some of his teams may have a thing or two to learn from the innovator.

“The capabilities of our people to rapidly innovate & adapt to new circumstances never ceases to amaze me,” tweeted Anand Mahindra.(Twitter/@anandmahindra)

The video posted by Mahindra shows what looks like a regular e-rickshaw. However, this one is modified to include four separate seating compartments. Through this modification, four people can ride on the same vehicle without any contact with the others. The idea does some neat, given the current situation.
