If they posted pictures from India, they would run out of bandwidth.

The China photos look so much like India, with everyone hurling himself into any available space, rules and etiquette be damned.

They missed shooting Hosur Road. If they had shot Hosur Road about a year back, it sure would have taken the cake.

Come'on nothing to beat the unruly Indian traffic .

Crazy stuff! There was an article in CNN last week,mentioning that 800 (?) cars were stranded on one of the prominent freeways in Wisconsin. That being attributed to heavy snowfall,though.

Dear theMag, this is a wonderful collection of pictures. Unfortunately, these are not one-off pictures but these photos can be shot everyday with the same impact.

though traffic jams in other countries are quite intimidating no one stops traffic the way we indians do. and once its over we dont really even come to know what the fuss was all about in the first place.
