Those are not even cyclopousse, as there are not bicycle, just arms, like two centuries ago. The City Government has forbidden them from the city center more than ten years are it gives a bad image of the city (dixit the authorities).

But when you move only five kilometers from the epicenter, it tells another story.

I will never understand those people who think India has a quaint charm.
