This is very Pathetic Question.. Pathetic not for the drained face of the Rikshaw Puller..but the thinking of those who want to deprive a labour to its Wages in the ground of Sympathy by the Elitist thinking..

A Riskshaw puller is a Labour.. instead of depriving him from his wages why can't U pay him the right Wage for its Labour.. In a narrow streets of Sub-Urban localities where auto-rikshaws or public transport are not able to lead the tranport are taken by these Riskhaw Pullers.. A Rikshaw Pullers earns approx. 200/- per day.. in the whole day.. There is a very strong Union to take care the interest of these Rickshaw Pullers.. There rates are fixed.. This is an essential transport system indegenously.. They are the LIFE-LINES of the Remote areas..

I feel upset. I think the government should ban rickshaws but before that it should rehabilitate the rickshawallahs by teaching them some sort of skill so that they can pick up some alternative employment.
On the other hand the government should encourage family cycling..that will keep the entire family on their individual cycles ..it will improve their health and reduce pollution.

Some countries and cities have already taken steps to either ban or restrict cycle rickshaws. Rickshaws are not fitting the modern image of cities. Pakistan has already banned use of cycle rickshaws in their cities. A man peddling a rickshaw, while the other reclines in comfort is a very pitiable site. A human pulling along another human while one toils and other sits in comfort is a despicable idea.

Most people in this forum are lazy and dont understand the value of work. They like to talk, gossip and give lectures. They will pour their heart out and think they are doing their bit for humanity but will refrain from doing hard work. This mindset is reflected in this question.

When a person is willing to do hard work for his earning, someone here wants the govt to ban it becoz those who take a ride on the rick dont like poor sweaty face. Why people cant think that instead of banning rickshaw, they should charge more from the passengers to make a good income.

This is a typical thinking wherein people like to demand that the govt shoud bring down the prices instead that they should work more or extra to earn more so as to compensate for the loss due to price rise.

All it needs is a change of attitude and paradigm.

RIckshaw pulling is already banned in most of the country. Rickshaw pullers of the land have special right to avail of loan for motorized vehicle. But then, just as caste system and child labour is banned in India, u still see it in full force due to corruption.

In the rickshaw driver scenario, the money which is supposed to go towards giving these guys some motorized vehicle gets swindled by the govt itself! Then what's the point of talking about the govt helping out?

If rickshaw's were banned and the drivers got a free motorized vehicle on the state, then yeah ,the ban makes sense. But simply banning rickshaw's without offering any alternative to the pullers would simply make them unemployed which only makes their lives harder.

Some times such thoughts have come to my mind too. But on second thought i realised it is must for rikshaw puller to do so, as its enable him to earn his bread. and probably that is the only means available to him.
