Michael Schumaker of Bengalooru
I could make up in time only because of my Cab driver Mr. Abdul Rehman, who picked me from airport @ 8:30 AM and dropped me @ the doorstep of TAJ exactly at 9:00 AM. Rehman sahab is a Michael Schumaker when he hits the roads, he is just a traffic cutter, with an international driving experience, everytime I visit Bangalore, this is the man whom I rely on. He knows every nook and corner of Bangalore and always ready anytime anywhere. If you guys happen to go to Bangalore, Rehman is the most reliable driver, I would suggest. He can be contacted @ 09844259184.
