Three cheers
TO THE
three-wheeler
The autorickshaw turns 50 this year. This common manís transport has seen several incarnations since its first version rolled out of a shed in suburban Bombay in 1957. Shiv Kumar traces the many journeys ó some smooth, some rough ó of the three-wheeler, a uniquely Indian contraption.
Born from the union of a resurgent Germany after World War II and an India just past the first flush of freedom, the autorickshaw today symbolises frugal engineering at its best.

Punjabi folk spirit at Doha
Donald Banerjee
PUNJAB
folk artistes took Doha by storm as they wielded the kirpan with an uncanny sense of anticipation and performed intricate body movements, giving a display of the Sikh martial art form of gatka.
