‘Sathyameva Jayate’ is the name of his autorikshaw.  And true to its name, the driver Krishnadas has been careful to return to the rightful owner anything that the customer may unknowingly leave in his auto.

The first time this happened, he handed over the `17500 to Mattanchery Police Station for necessary action.  At another time, he returned the purse containing 3 sovereigns of gold and cash to the owner through police.

When such incidents reached the figure of 14, police themselves decided to honour the man of truth.  So under the auspices of Jana Maitri Police, the Fort Kochi Police honoured him last November.

Recently, he was instrumental in tracing the autorickshaw where a customer had left behind an expensive mobile phone.  With some effort he was able to unite the article and its owner.  Further, he is active in helping the victims of accidents by conveying them to the hospital.

He does not have the habit of waiting for customers at any stand.  His regular customers call him over phone and request his services.  Whether night or day, he is ready to serve.  And when the traveler is an aged person, Krishnadas is all the more ready to help.

He gets regular offers to take commuters to Nedumbassery Air Port.  Few of his customers prefer to keep their cars in the garage and engage Krishnadas’s auto.

Truthful conduct and an attitude to serve are his forte.  For the last 12 years he plies the same auto.  He says he has about 60 regular customers.

He lives in a rented house near T.D.School, Mattanchery, Ernakulam and has three children.  Because of his good conduct, everybody helps him in times of need, he says.
