Cab driver’s rooftop garden on taxi

Creativity and passion can give out great results. Meet this ‘green’ taxi driver who used a unique approach to change his taxi into a small mobile garden.

Dhananjay Chakraborty, a taxi driver in Kolkata has created a rooftop gardenon his cab and has a mini green cavern in the trunk of his car with potted plants. He calls his taxi “subuj rath’ or the green chariot.

The car consists of metal containers on the rooftop, the rooftop of which is laid with soil, white sand and stone chips and the original green grass grows up with the help of those mechanizations. It weighs about 65 kgs and has cost Charkborty approximately Rs.22000 to build. He stated that he doesn’t mind the cost.

Chakraborty is a 40 year old cabbie who works from the taxi stand at Tollygunge Karunamoyee in Kolkata. In fact, he has planted flowers at the taxi stand too. His taxi is an ambassador. Beside the green grass bed on roof, he also has eight potted plants in the trunk and has a green interior made to promote the message that trees and plants should be taken care of. He got the idea of a green garden taxi from one of his friends who found something similar on Internet and suggested the initiative to Chakraborty
