Rickshaws in Calcutta

As far as I know, Calcutta is the only city in India where you can still get hand-drawn rickshaws. It can be a shock the first time you see them waiting for you outside the station when you arrive by train. This one is being drawn by a youngster; but I remember most of the rickshaw-pullers being old men.
