The Garden Taxi Of Kolkata | Oddly In India

Even with a Mercedes parked next to it, you'll probably be looking at this Kolkata taxi instead.

Dhananjay Chakraborty drives what might be the coolest cab in the country. What started as a fascination for plants as a child has now grown into an attraction by itself! A host of plants adorn the dashboard and the rear window of Dhananjay's taxi, which he lovingly calls 'Green Chariot'. An offhand remark by a friend even gave him the idea to add a bed of grass coating the top of the car, making this probably the most eco-friendly cab in the country.
