... was seven o'clock now and back in the station we were both on edge about what to do. Nobody could make sense of what we were saying as no one spoke english. All we could shout was ''AGRA, AGRA'' which caught the attention of one guy who came straight up to me. He was in his early twenties and spoke good english.

... the rickshaw drivers are desperate to make a sale.

Given the poverty here, we've felt conflicted about how hard to bargain and whether we should ever hand out money to beggars. On one hand, we don't want to reinforce the notion that tourists are easy sources of cash and can be taken advantage of.
