Velowala is a site that documents mostly through photos bicycle commerce in India.  A wala is someone who does something and a velo is a bike.  Wala is a common tag put on the end of a job title.  Like – a dishwala is a guy who washes dishes, a dhabba walla is a guy who delivers dhabba (lunch) and a sodabottleopenerwala is someone who opens soda bottles.  You get the picture.
