Ready for a Ride !!!, originally uploaded by Prakash Chakraborty.

This is how the rural people in West Bengal,India travel on water. They would also carry their cycles with them so that they can have a ride when on land.
This boat is motorized and runs on small diesel engines.
These boats are not legalized as they have a reputation in overturning (mostly because they are loaded to the limits) but keep on running as this is the most cost effective way of transportation in this part of the country, which is criss crossed by river.
