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!

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.
