A person wondered, “Auto main reverse gear bhi hota hai? (Is there a reverse gear in an auto rickshaw?) Never saw it being used”.

Another user joked, “Must add for next Olympics”.

A user offered a name for the competition – “Rickshaw Returns“.

“India is full of talent,” a comment read.

Last year, a bullock cart race, held at Landewadi in Ambegaon tehsil of the Pune district, saw the participation of more than 350 bullock cart owners. According to former Shiv Sena MP from Shirur, Shivajirao Adhalrao Patil, who organised the race, cart owners from Pune and neighbouring Ahmedabad district competed in the event.

The cart owners raced individually on a 400-meter track and the winners were decided as per the time clocked by each cart.
