As seen in the picture here a rickshaw mechanic is fixing a tire leak. These street mechanics are found at pavements and roadsides across the cities. They provide services for instant minor repairing of the rickshaws. Sometimes rickshaw pullers use the tools of these mechanics on their own e.g. inflating their rickshaw tires by the air pumper, and pay for the lending service. They sit over the pavements with their tools and other equipments and provide services to the rickshaws for late night. Few also work during night especially at places where rickshaw stands are alive throughout the night. They earn a little amount compared to the expenses to run their family, but even then they had to sit in the road for a long fixed time expecting next clients to come.
