Magadi Road




Like all Jhatka Gaadi stands, the one on Magadi Road is next to the market. The Corporation Market on Magadi Road got the current building in 1954. However, the market and the adjoining horse cart stand existed long before that.




Meet Amir Jan. He's been working here for four decades and he owns a single horse.







The man on the right is also called Amir Jan. He says that he's been plying carts from this very stand for nearly six decades!




Meet the new generation of horse owners. This Horse Cart Stand has 10 horses and horse drawn carts. Business is not what it used to be, but then, they continue to keep going.



After a nourishing meal, the horses are being prepared for a day on the road. Shubha labha.

Those ponies have a tough life. With every day that passes they - and the oxen pulling carts - look more and more incongruous in Bangalore.
