Following photo appeared in Dawn of January 13, 2008. It shows yet another use of rickshaw. After a sudden drop in winter temperature, this guy bought a water heating geyser from Saddar, Karachi and is seen hauling it in the ever-versatile carrier of Pakistan, the rickshaw.

The Jet Rickshaw?

When I first saw the title photo of this post, it reminded me of an episode from ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ children series about a jet engine.

That is why I decided to name our Rickshaw as a jet rickshaw in the title. When you see the following video, especially from timeline 1 min 45 sec onwards, you’ll see the resemblance and you will know what I am talking about.

At ATP we’ve had a special fascination for a Pakistani Rickshaw. Here are some related ATP posts on rickshaw:

1. Rickshaw for transporting Fresh Chicken meat,
2. Rickshaw as a moving billboard,
3. Rickshaw transporting another Rickshaw,
4. Rickshaw Transporting a bakra (goat),
5. Rickshaw for transporting People ,
6. The Pakistani Rickshaw – Art and Engineering Together,
7. A Virtual Rickshaw Ride, and

    What’s special about this? 100 people on a bus, overloaded donkey carts, trucks bursting with cargo are all every day sights on the streets of urban Pakistan.

    there can be so much done with the help of the good ole rickshaw. I remember there was this one time when I went with my mom and phoppi to buy a bakra for eid. We were 5 ppl in all (me, mom, phuppo, my brother and cousin). We brought the bakara in a rickshaw. Can you imagine that
