Default "Symphony" of Indian traffic

Someone on this website has put up a video of a very busy and congested street in India. The way the traffic moves is scary yet exciting even for us Indians! Withing that 2-3 minute video there were so many close calls and yet no one has an accident. It almost seems like a perfectly orchestrated and cherographed video!

I don't know if I should feel happy or sad after watching that video!

Note: Scroll down and click on Link for the video.

and to note that the traffic is flowing so smooth without any signal or any cops in sight speaks about the "order in chaos" that our streets are.

There is a very good reason for that.
If you observe honey bees their movement is very fast yet they don't collide.
Now if a video of India traffic is taken from top view & payed it at 100 times faster rate you will see same picture as you see with honeybees.
