This is what the normal cycle rickshaw is – in Varanasi, in any other city of India (or in any other country where such rickshaws are found).
And this is what any rickshaw-puller looks like – basically migrants or people from the lowest economic class of societies – putting their hard labour to earn their living – day after day – with no guarantee for the next day.
And so, this is what caught my attention – these specially designed ‘royal cycles rickshaws’ – and when I googled, I came across this tourism initiative launched by an outfit in God’s Own City – titled ‘Mr. Rickshaw Wala’.
Well, I didn’t find any description for this special attire, as can be seen in these pictures, designed for these ‘customized and designed’ rickshaws.
Looking at them gave me mixed feeling. Hope the concept works well.
