The proud rickshaw puller

This photo shows Shyama, the rickshaw puller who drove us through the streets of old Delhi. After talking to him, I learnt that he earns 250 rupees( $4 USD) per day by driving people around the area. He knows he is earning the bare minimum for survival, but he also proudly says that without him, the entire city could stop.
