Submission + - How Rickshaws Are Still Preferred in Delhi (

vishal dogra writes: "There is no choice, but the rickshaws, for roving around Lajpat Nagar in Delhi, India because of inadequate parking space. The most of the visitors who feel delighted to choose one of the rickshaws, under normal conditions, would otherwise have inhibitions for opting for a ride in rickshaw.

We choose rickshaws for our own comfort and they always greet those who ask them for a ride. By all means, it is the bread and butter of rickshaw pullers. The fair for a single ride varies from Rs. 10 to Rs. 15 which is only 1/6th of a US Dollar. The riders even managed to bargain with these rickshaw-pullers at such slashed rates."
