Over the years, the traffic situation in several cities has gotten worse. Maharashtra’s cultural and educational capital Pune is not behind. While public transport like buses and metro is supporting the infrastructure, the situation is still chaotic and no one is immune to bearing the brunt of it.

Taking to Instagram, he posted a picture from a rickshaw and shared that since his car was stuck in traffic on Pune roads, he got out of his car, walked a few kilometers, took an auto, and set to his destination.

“If your S-class is stuck in traffic on the wonderful Pune roads – what do you do? Maybe getting off the car, start walking for a few KM’s and then grabbing a rickshaw?”
