None of us is new to Uber and its drivers. We all know for a fact how much Uber drivers are desperate to finish their daily quota and we can’t blame them too. After all, it is the matter of their daily bread. However, a man named Santosh has set an example for everybody.
On 13th of October, Priyashmita Guha boarded a cab along with her mom late in the night. When they reached their destination, it was 1 AM and the house was locked. After paying for their ride, Priyashmita expected the driver to leave but Santosh waited there itself to ensure his passengers’ safety. The lady also revealed that Santosh declined further calls that he was receiving from potential passengers.
Check out Priyashmita Guha’s tweet below:

Uber India responded to her tweet. They appreciated Santosh for his gesture and tweeted how Ms Guha’s status made them smile ear to ear. Uber didn’t just stop there. Their appreciation didn’t just end with a simple tweet. Uber India felicitated Santosh in an event.
The last two days have been really rewarding for us as we went through countless good wishes for Santosh. We invited him today to thank him for his commitment and values that have won hearts around the nation. Kudos! pic.twitter.com/jsudMqnBda
