This photograph was taken near Kumartuli, one of the oldest places of Kolkata, where pulled rickshaws still can be seen. In recent times the use of human-powered rickshaws has been discouraged or outlawed in many countries, as people who pulled this types of rickshaws need enormous strength. They have been replaced mainly by cycle and auto rickshaws. While roaming through the place, I took this photo to show the life of a pulled rickshaw worker.
