As part of the initiatives undertaken to commemorate the centenary of Navalmal Kundanmal Firodia, the Shri Firodia Trust is donating 50 Ambulances to deserving small and medium institutions working in the field of providing medicare, particularly in rural India over the year 2010-11. Shribala Chordia, granddaughter of N. K. Firodia is driving the activities of the trust.
Speaking at the function organised to hand over a few of the 50 ambulances that the trust is donating, Dr. Abhay Firodia, Chairman Force Motors Ltd and son of N.K. Firodia mentioned that the word “Autorickshaw” in common use today throughout our country was coined by N. K. Firodia when he introduced the three wheeler motorized transport in India way back in 1948. The autorickshaw replaced the horse drawn tongas completely by the late sixties.
He also introduced the concept of light commercial vehicles in India by introducing the 3-wheeled Tempo vehicle and the diesel Matador vehicle. Over last half century the word “Tempo” has become a generic word for all makes of light commercial vehicles. He thus gave to the country two iconic names and products which have stood the test of time.
Indira Firodia and Sunanda Mehta handed over the keys of the ambulance to Dr V G Vaidya, Managing Director of the Lokmanya Medical Services and Research Centers and to Vinod Shah, Chairman of the Jan Seva Foundation at their residence in Pune.
