Musclemania® natural Mohsin Khan says, "THE RICKSHAW PULLER!

Since the end of the 19th century, hand-pulled rickshaws have been plying the streets of Kolkata. They have witnessed to and remained an integral part of Kolkata’s socio-economic evolution for over 100 years.

Along with the Victoria Memorial, the Howrah Bridge, foreign tourists also identifies Kolkata with these hand-pulled rickshaws. They regard it as a cultural icon of the city, irrespective of the stories of inhumanity and cruelty that social critics and activists have attributed to the city’s unbarred use of man-powered rickshaws."
