A rickshaw driver takes his place among taxis waiting for a train to pass in Kolkata (Calcutta), India. Rickshaws ferry passengers and deliver all sorts of things to hotels, shops, and homes around the city: live chickens, ripe bananas, supplies to feed 500 wedding guests. Most passengers are middle class—the poor can't afford the fare, and the rich have posher ways to get around.
