      ... s fair to say the rickshaw men probably didn't realise we were and probably didn't care as they were both over 65 and one probably 10 years older than that.

      We are always in a quandary about things like this. On one hand we think it's not right that such old people (65 may not be old in England but if you have lived your life on the streets of Kolkata then you may think a bit differently) have to work so hard and for just a few pence to pull us around.
