wish to bring to our ELITE notice the hand pulling RIKSHAWs which is still can be seen KOLKATTA.Such types of rikshaws were there in Chennai@Madraearlier on.Such rikshawalas used to  be very friendly and I still remember that my MOM used to go in one of the rikshaws to movies to Kaplali Talkies with a friend rather regularly.It was perhaps like the present day Call Taxi or Tourist Taxi.Of course for the rich the black and yeallow Taxis were there and autos were lesser in comparison.Cylcle Rikshaws were the improvised form later on and there was a BAN on hand pulled rikshaws at some time and we were deprived of the

simplest mode of transport.It is interesting and also intriguing to see such rikshaws which is MAN pulled is still in existence inn WB Capital  KOLKATTA largely a Communist bastion.I  would very much like our intelligent friends of RBI to throw more light and weight on the very interesting mode of transport.I for one never ventured into hand pulled rikshaws since I for one used to wonder what happens if the MAN loses his balance!PlS respond!
