Hailing an auto-rickshaw in Delhi is stressful enough. But, if you get stuck in traffic on a May afternoon, don’t bother differentiating your tears from your sweat. Imagine if there’s a diplomatic flag on your three-wheeler chariot though, surely these issues don’t apply to you then.

This peculiar combination of diplomatic flag meets Delhi’s auto-rickshaw is actually the official vehicle of Melba Pria, the Mexican ambassador to India. In a video by 101 India, Pria and her (auto) chauffeur talk about not being allowed into the parliament, the beautification of their auto and how a common Indian rickshaw became an official diplomatic vehicle.
