Taking a taxi can be a pretty mundane part of our lives. One particular video of cab ride, however, has amused many online. The short clip of a driver conversing with a passenger in Sanskrit is going viral on social media platforms.
Reportedly shot in Bengaluru, it was shared on Twitter by a user, Girish Bharadwaja, who is a member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad. Bharadwaja was surprised when he found his taxi driver speaking fluently in Sanskrit!

The smiling cabbie conversing with the rider got everyone talking online and garnered a lot of praise on the micro-blogging site. Many were taken down memory lane to when they studied Sanskrit back in school.
No secret service agent will be able to make out if all #Bhakts talk like this. Reminded me or #RitchieStreet Muslim shop owners in #Chennai discussing price and margin in front of customers.
