Mexico’s Ambassador to India, Melba Pria, has received a positive response from the people of India. She has been using an auto rickshaw as her official transport instead of an expensive car.
Auto rickshaws are one of the most popular methods of public transportation in India. However no high-ranking officials use auto rickshaws as they are regarded as vehicles of ordinary or poor people. They are not allowed to enter hotels and even parliament.
However, she selected it to promote Mexico in an Indian way. Moreover, she wanted to use a vehicle that is made for Indian streets. In addition, she is concerned about the air quality of India. Rickshaws produce less air pollution than automobiles.
Her iconic vehicle also underwent another remodeling, with Mexican street artist Senkoe drawing bright yellow and orange flowers on the roof. According to the artist, they represent the vitality of Mexico. As her auto rickshaw has become a representation of Mexico, it was the perfect choice.
