Two men with cloth wrapped around their heads were pushing a large cart through the streets of Kolkata. The city of Kolkata is a big city, and of course, the main artery of transportation is the big trucks. However, it is not uncommon to see human-powered carts like the one in this photo. While trucks are used for long-distance transportation, there seems to be a distinction between long-distance and short-distance transportation in this city.

There was nothing on the cart the men were pushing, but the cart itself, made of thick bamboo, looked very heavy. The grimness of the man's face in the left hand seemed to speak eloquently to the extent of his hard work.
