Look at the brighter side, guys! India, they say, is a paradise for photographers. Where else in the world can one get an opportunity to take such out-of-the-world shots! Congrats Nevertouchme!
Tail piece: contrast/colour enhancement can make your pictures look better, NTM. I recommend Google Picasa.

Heheh saw many tempos like this when i was on my way to Bisle(sakleshpur), scarry part was that during the night they were travelling and one needs a good powerful hl's to spot them soon enough. luckily it was not raining or it would have been a greated risk.

Hmm, some ideas in there for external airbags. Toppling over is so safe for this guy!

in smaller towns near bangalore, say hassan, it's pretty common for these guys to go around residential colonies selling husk for heating water... it's so bloody common they must be experts in sewing those husk shells.

The first image is priceless, that's a cool hairdo the Tempo's sporting How did they get all those coconut thingies on to that 3-wheeler in the first place ? How did the driver even get into that thing ? It's amazing, seems good enough to be on the record books or something...
