The YouTube video of Arun Kumar is going viral on social media. In the video, Arun Kumar's kids Madhav Krishna and Keshini Krishna can be seen riding an auto-rickshaw completely built by their father.
Idukki: Five-year-old Madhav Krishna, after watching Mollywood star Mohanlal's film Aye Auto, asked his father to gift him an auto-rickshaw.
Without thinking twice, Arun Kumar agreed to gift Krishna an auto-rickshaw. It wasn't difficult for Arun to build the three-wheeler, because he was a state award winner of working model competition at the age of 15.
Now, the YouTube video of Arun is going viral. In the video, Arun's kids Madhav and Keshini Krishna, can be seen riding an auto-rickshaw completely constructed by their father.

Arun, a staff nurse at Idukki district hospital, has a popular Do it yourself (DIY) channel too on YouTube. He was born in a carpenters family, so it's not surprising to know that Arun has magic in his hands.
Arun didn't have much money to spend on toys for his children, but his deft hands could create wonder toys for his children (son Madhav and daughter Keshini).
The nurse told the media that he was inspired by his father's work and he started crafting toys. He also said that his father gifted him a second-hand bicycle with wooden wheels.

This auto-rickshaw apart, Arun has also gifted his son a car and a jeep. His three-year-old baby girl was gifted a bike.
As a Mohanlal fan, Arun named his son's auto rickshaw 'Sundhari', the same name that the actor's auto had in the film Aye Auto.
The demand for Arun's mini inventions are increasing day by day. But he is not ready to sell his toys to other people. He said that eventually when he gets more time then he would definitely try to make toys for others, but definitely not the ones which he created for his children.
