INDIA CROSSING THE RIVER GANGES Kolkata: One of the most favored means of public transport in Kolkata; the taxis; have completed a hundred years in the city today. But there's not too much to celebrate for Kolkata's yellow cabs. Seventy-six-year old Hansa Singh has driven his cab on the streets of Kolkata for over six decades. From behind the wheel; he's seen the world change; from the days of the British Raj to the days of Communist rule. And that’s what makes him proud that he chose this profession. “I am driving taxis since the days of the Raj. I've seen the British and our own government as well. I am into full fledged public service;  says the driver.
