ryszard kapuściński's first foreign assignment transports him from communist poland to india. emaciated rickshaw drivers jostle for his attention, and he resolves to walk. extremes of culture -- "everyone is your brother." or "everyone has their place."

i see rickshaws in minneapolis now as well, but the drivers seem not to be starving.
