Two months ago, a video of an autorickshaw with a garden on its rooftop went viral on social media. The driver who came up with the idea won massive praise on Twitter and other platforms.

Mahendra Kumar, the driver, came up with this creative idea to keep himself and his passengers cool during the scorching summer heat.

Mr Kumar managed to grow over 20 different varieties of herbs, vegetables and plants in this moving garden on the roof of his auto, according to a report in news agency AFP. He even planted crops such as lettuce, tomato and millets in the one-of-its-kind garden.

Kumar first put a mat on the roof, followed by a sack and then added soil to grow the garden. He waters the plants twice a day in order to keep them green and healthy, AFP report further said.
