Arup Datta, Rickshaws and Bicycles

 

Arup Datta during the month of August did a lot of drawings of bicycles, but he began the month with rickshaws. So I’ll start there. Enjoy.

“There are still some hand-pulled rickshaws in central Kolkata streets and lanes! Heavy load of the passengers pulled by a man of any age in this illustrated type of rickshaws can’t be considered savior in Covid19 hit streets in certain streets in Kolkata! Hand-pulled rickshaws should not be glorified from any point of view! The pullers may be suitably helped by the city administration to buy battery powered rickshaws!”
