The Indian!

The Indian!

This weekend, I am sharing an image of an overloaded jeep, from Hazaribagh, Jharkhand, India. Though it may seem overloaded, it is also the usual sight on roads, as there are limited taxis on this route. These jeeps not only transport people but also animals, food, and any other object that fits in or on it! The price is the same, be it the air-cooled balcony seats or the claustrophobic and  crowded cabins. IF you don’t find in either, then just hang at the back.Having no option but to use one of these during my visit in 2004, I chose the air-cooled balcony seat (this picture is taken from another jeep). Though the journey was only half hour, I remember spending my time holding onto my life, or protecting my camera or getting a bunch of goats off me. By the end of this, I ended up doing all…though the goats were quite a handful. Better than any ride in Disneyland! And cheaper as well.
