This is not a circus performance. It’s also not a joke. The images are real – from India. Such sights are common everywhere across the length and breadth of the country and makes one wonder what lies in store for road users in the event these precariously-balanced vehicles topple over.
Having stayed outside India for several years, we are also now used to a road discipline not seen at ‘home’ and that’s the reason why such images evoke a sense of amazement and awe. And, in case you are wondering, the man on the two wheeler on the left is riding pillion. How the driver is managing is certainly not my guess!
Welcome to India! Welcome to reality!!
