Sultanpur Lodhi isn’t on the Grand Trunk Road anymore, The little town in Kapurthala district of Punjab earned its place in history when the young Guru Nanak Dev found employment here, working as an accountant for Nawab Daulat Khan Lodhi. Squelching my way to the historic Gurudwara Hatt Sahib on a rainy day, I found the world’s smallest tractor showroom—a stall crammed with miniature agricultural machinery. It was a fixed-price shop but I came away with this hand-made HMT 5911 for just Rs 40. The full-scale version has a 59 BHP direct injection engine, hydraulic brakes and power steering. Mine just has steering.
