years ago when I was ,i have witnessed on the roads of Allahabad,particularly in Mutthiganj,keedganj and salemsarai areas the race of ekkas.This used to a hobby of so called" Raises" of Allahabad.They would normally be sitting on open top ekkas,wearing Dhotis and Chikan kurtas with a "dupaliya" cap on their heads,with sometimes jasmine garlands on their wrists.They would literrally flog the horses and have a race.This was known as "Gaharebaazi".your article revived the memories.keep up the good work.Anoop Jhingron
