Gangadhar Tilak Katnam, 73, is also known as “Road Doctor” from Hyderabad. He has a car, which he calls a ‘pothole ambulance’. He goes out on the road with his wife and fills up any pits he finds. Gangadhar took this initiative when his complaints did not affect the officials. He saw that road accidents were increasing day by day due to potholes, so he himself started working to fill those potholes along with his wife.
