The Rickshaw blog made it to the March edition of Spider (Pakistan's Internet magazine)

This blog collects the poetry, phrases, expressions, and words found on the back of Rickshaws.

The Rickshaws (auto-rickshaws, cycle rickshaws, jinrikshaws), minibuses, trucks and other commercial vehicles of South Asia are moving works of art. Much has been made of the colorful paint jobs they sport. The poetry that decorates them has often been collected. But the inscriptions on the back of Rickshaws are also an expression of the uncensored id of South Asia.

Join the discussion, discuss contributions, share thoughts about public transportation in South Asia and its related art.
Enjoy entries to the Blog even before they appear here at Rickshaw!
