Auto jaani-Ayn Rand



This is Ayn Rand caricature..i've done this with passion on Rand's philosophical quotations which are introduced by 'auto jaani'.
He is a school drop out. He ferries people around the city in his auto-rickshaw.
He is usually to be found in a liquor shop in Chilkalguda, or Anjali Theatre in
Secunderabad, or some other cinema hall. Before you jump to conclusions that he
is just another uneducated soul, check this out. He is an ardent follower of
philosophy, particularly Philosophy inspired by the likes of Friedrich
Nietzsche or the famous writer, Ayn Rand.

If anywhere in Hyderabad you come across an auto that is full of philosophical
quotes by Nietzsche or Ayn Rand, then you’ve just discovered “Auto-Jaani”. I
myself discovered Auto-Jaani on one “blog”buster. Now, I find philosophy and
all the headaches associated with it absolutely thrilling.


“Of many a proud struture’s ruins, weeds and raindrops have been the cause” –
Friedrich Nietzsche

“Of many a great people’s downfall, women have been the cause” – Auto-Jaani



All I know is Nothing —– Aristotle

All I don’t know is auto driving but I am an autodriver —– Auto-Jaani


“…..when you truly realize that you know nothing there truly can be a high
possibility of you knowing everything”

This is what I am doing…..believe me guys everyday is an exciting day.
- Auto-Jaani

[P.S: I couldn’t find a picture of Auto Jaani, hence I have drawn a caricature
of Ayn Rand.

This doesn’t mean I want to read Ayn Rand. It only means I like reading about
those who read Ayn Rand]

I think the caricature of Ayn Rand drawn by you has little bit of indian features.
