Photographer's Note

Kolkata's Pulled Rickshaw:-
A pulled rickshaw (or ricksha) is a mode of human-powered transport by which a runner draws a two-wheeled cart which seats one or two persons.
In recent times the use of human-powered rickshaws has been discouraged or outlawed in many countries due to concern for the welfare of rickshaw workers. Pulled rickshaws have been replaced mainly by cycle rickshaw and auto rickshaws. At the turn of the century it was introduced in Kolkata (Calcutta), India and in 1914 was a conveyance for hire.
I took this photo at Sovabazar(a place i n Kolkata).
