Yes, that is a hand-powered ferrris wheel

This was possibly one of the most mind-bending things that I saw. There was a small festival in the village where we were staying and I had to do a double-take once I saw the ferris wheel. There is a man on each side of the wheel who take turns turning the wheel around for the riders. As we walked past, the man furthest away in the photo grinned widely and gestured for us to come take a ride (unfortunately, we did not). This is just another example of the ingenuity that can occur when resources are limited.

Also notice the bike in the background loaded with boxes and pots (this is customary for India).
