Aged man sitting on his rickshaw
An aged man is sitting on a hand-driven rickshaw. There are people walking in the foreground, at a brisk pace and in the background is a shop which sells clocks.
Hand driven rickshaws have been part of Calcutta's history for over a hundred years, but now with the advent of modernisation, motorised rickshaws have replaced these to match the pace of current day life. And for me this was a moment in time, which would be lost in the future.
