Handcarts have been around since time immemorial. It’s surprising that inspite of the advances in transportation technology we still rely on these modes for movement of goods. It reminds me of Kolkata where they still have hand rickshaw pullers in certain parts of the city.
Banning either is out of the question as you are then depriving people, who pull these wooden modes of transport, of their bread and butter.
I came across many of these handcarts while strolling through Chor Bazaar one Sunday morning and just thought of capturing them as they are.
While some are used as beds by the handcart pullers…
While others are getting ready for a busy day in the city.
This can happen only in India. An Ambassador on two wheels:P
