Definition

Originally term for cycle rickshaw - which is a 3 wheeled cycle ridden by the driver and sitting at the back were two, three or sometimes more passengers (often overweight people or sometimes large groups of kids going to school).

Except in some rural areas, rickshaws have almost disappeared but may make a future comeback as it is non polluting and non gas guzzling.

Usage

Ritesh:
"My grandparents used to take a rickshaw to the railway station that was almost 3 km away. On the way my grandmother always stopped at the flower shop to buy god garlands."
