OK, it has nothing to do with photography in India but I think it's a very cool story. Much to be said about doing this in this age of selfies and smartphone photos. I still have my Pentax ME Super SLR.
Imagine carrying this camera around India!

Photographer Shoots Formula 1 With 104-Year-Old Camera

"If ever there was a sport that required rapid fire photography, Formula One racing is it. Which makes what photographer Joshua Paul does even more fascinating, because instead of using top-of-the-range cameras to capture the fast-paced sport, Paul chooses to take his shots using a 104-year-old Graflex 45 view camera.

The photographer clearly has an incredible eye for detail, because unlike modern cameras that can take as many as 20 frames per second, his 1913 Graflex can only take 20 pictures in total."

The website linked by Sama is temporarily unavailable. Here is one of several versions of the same story(I think).

Is it possible to produce the lean forward effect, seen in very early racing car images, using a modern dslr with mechanical shutter? See images in linked article:
