I took this picture near Kalma Chowk. The person on a tiny cart was taking aid from Rikshaw for riding. I was stunned by his courage. The cart was very small and vulnerable comparing to his own size. And the most sarcastic thing is the writing behind the Rickshaw "تینوں رب دیاں رکھاں" (God protects you).
I must admit when I took this picture through my mobile phone camera I was also riding a bike at around 40KM/H.

Atif, this picture really deserves praise.What a mind and timing.I can see a lot of lesson, courage, an element of humour + pity.
Good take and nice note.

Difficult & Risky shot. You could be fined by traffic police for using mobile while driving.
