The Anglo-Indian Motorman

When I think of Rajendra Aklekar, it brings to mind the picture of a researcher who is often out in the field armed with a camera, notebook and pen, even perhaps a pair of binoculars !
.
Well, that is what he is : a journalist, reporter, researcher, even railway archaeologist !! Here's one more piece of writing by him telling about Charles Francis Amarol, one of Bombay's oldest motormen. Cheers.
