A cycle rickshaw was parked by the roadside and a gray-haired man was resting on its seat. He was smoking a non-filter cigarette and waiting for customers to come. He was a so-called rickshaw wallah. A cloth was worn around his neck and it was a typical fashion of rickshaw wallah.

To smoke a cigarette is a nice way of killing time. Yet it was prohibited to smoke in public space in India. Nevertheless, I saw many people smoking a cigarette in the streets like him. Many people seemed not to care about the law here.
