The wholesale produce market in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), India is in an ancient, cavernous building filled with vendors along narrow aisles. The produce arrives at the market by truck packed in huge baskets, each weighing much more than the men who must carry then into the building. It takes several men to lift the basket on to the head of a porter who then carries it through the narrow doorway and down the narrower aisles, all the while having to dodge vendors and customers. This man grimaces as the basket is set on his head. After a final adjustment he is on his own to get his load to its destination.
