City Life in Rains
Due to heavy rains certain areas of Kolkata face waterlogging. But this does not dampen the spirits of people to go about their daily routine. Here a hand pulled rickshaw, carries a passenger to its destination wading through knee deep water. The waterlogging is due to a cascading effect of years of climate change and ill-drainage facilities. It can be coined under the environmental pollution so common these days across the world. One of the few cities,rickshaws still are a part of local culture
