Life … in a Metro

This picture taken in 30th Oct 2012 at the Metro City Kolkata which happens to be my home city as well.


The caption of the image taken from a well known Bollywood movie. This is a heritage Pulled Rickshaw of the City of Joy, Kolkata.

My framing was from the top, from the second floor of a building. I used my Nikkor 40mm with the ISO at 100 and shutter speed of 1/60 secs and aperture f/4. I wish I could frame it from the front of his cart.

He can’t hide the truth, he can’t escape his fate and may be nobody will remember him. This is my salute to those “Rickshawalas” who are still maintaining this wonderful heritage withstanding so many barriers.

Tell me how you feel
