Indian man builds a fully functional mini auto-rickshaw for his children

This resident of southern India has gone the extra mile to make sure his children got the best toy to play with.

A staff nurse at Idukki District Hospital in Kerala, Arun Kumar Purushothaman has taken on the job of building a fully functional auto-rickshaw to fulfill the wishes of his son and daughter.

After seven months of hard work, Purushothaman built a miniature version of the three-wheeler using recycled materials, added a motor and battery, and, for good measure, named it Sundhari.

His love for vehicles started at an early age, but his family could not afford to buy him such toys. So he began building them himself and even won the first prize in a state-level competition for making the working model of a JCB earthmover.
