On July 1, 31-year-old Shrikant Singh, a senior manager with Amazon India, took an Uber from work and struck up a conversation with his driver.
It turned out that Singh's driver, Anand, was actually an IIT grad and the owner of 50 cars plying with Uber. What followed was an amazing revelation about why he was still driving people around.
This is what Anand told Singh:
"Ohh this car met with an accident a few days back and my Uber driver died. His family is too proud to take money, so I figured the only way I can help is to drive the car on his behalf and let the income from Uber keep flowing. And I feel happy doing this."
