If you had to sum up the character of Kolkata in one word, it would be "Ambi"or Ambassador, those sturdy, indestructible Indian-made copies of the Old Morris Minor. You would be hard put to find one in today's New Delhi but nearly every single cab in Kolkata is an Ambi. Built high off the road, they are ideal for a city that gets flooded sometimes more than once  a day in a Monsoon season that lasts a little longer with every passing year.

I spent a lot of time sitting in the back of an Ambi chatting to the engaging and sometimes dishonest drivers, and consequently I found myself shooting a lot of Ambi-related pics.
