A monk in the central Thai province of Ang Thong is being chastised by his higher-ups for using an electric cart to expedite his morning alms. The higher-ups have called his actions “inappropriate”. Wanchai Dhammatharo of Ang Thong City’s Wat Channimitr has been ordered by the chief of the Ang Thong Provincial Office of Buddhism, Sakdanai Woradetch, and Sakdani’s team to stop using the wheeled trolley to expedite his morning alms. Sakdanai says Wanchai’s behaviour was “imprudent” and “inappropriate” for a Buddhist monk. Wanchai says he has been using his wheeled contrivance for his morning alms for around 2 months. […]

One monk I pass every day on my cycle ride lives on his own about 5 kms from the nearest village, and he used to walk.  Now someone gave him an electric three-wheeler and no-one sees anything wrong.

 

Others I pass from one temple use a golf cart, others a samlor, all with a driver.

 

Nobody minds, as it all depends on the circumstances.

 

Looks like a slow news day.

Don't see what the issue is, he can collect more and with the transportation being electric it's good for the environment. 

Better than being transported in the back of a smoke belching pickup truck.

That contraption needs some alloy wheels and smattering of stickers. 

Liverpool FC, VIP Karaoke, etc.

Perhaps a Mountain Dew bottle hanging from the back.
