Director: Shashi Anand | Producer: Film and Television Institute of India
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 1981 | Country: India
Synopsis: Man-pulled rickshaw, which have served Kolkata for over eight decades face virtual extinction as a result of legislation introduced by the State Government in 1981. This would rob over 100,000 people of a living. The film analyzes the critical situation, and on the basis of concrete facts and figures, questions whether such a step would be fruitful at all. The image of a man pulling a man is a depressing and a negative one – but not more negative than that of the image of a man going without food.
