The man was repairing a cycle rickshaw

I passed by a small factory in Berhampore where a man with buck teeth was working. This was a maintenance store for cycle rickshaws. In India, cycle rickshaws run everywhere. If you were to stand on the side of the road and throw a stone, you would probably hit a cycle rickshaw without even intending to. With so many cycle rickshaws on the road, there must be many vehicles that break down. This was a factory that repairs such broken cycle rickshaws.

The man was squatting next to the wheel, in the middle of repairing it. He was holding something like a wrench in his hand and was turning a screw on the vehicle. When I pointed my camera at him, he stopped his work and turned around, wondering what was going on.
