Annadurai is now 29 years old. Annadurai’s auto runs between the Thiruvanmiyur bus terminus and Sholinganallur areas of Chennai. His main goal is to make his customers feel happy-  he wants customer satisfaction . The vehicle is Wi-Fi enabled and, if you’re not carrying a laptop or smartphone to connect to the internet, Annadurai will slip you a 10-inch tablet. He carries an internet dongle attached to a Wi-Fi router and offers free access to the internet. “Most people who take my auto work for IT companies and I know access to the internet is important for them,” Annadurai says. “It takes about half an hour to cover the distance between Thiruvanmiyur and Sholinganallur. Why waste that time?” Says Annadurai.

The auto also has lots of the latest edition magazines and newspapers. Annadurai spends 4,000 rupees a month on subscriptions to 35 various news publications. There are dailies for the customers who need to keep up on the news, weekly magazines for passengers who are taking a long ride, and glossy fortnight-lies for those interested in lighter reading.
