That is a hilarious pic... couldnt stop laughing when i saw it. Sorry guys.

The first pic looks like the auto has a full grown afro hairdo. and the subsequent ones make the auto look like its got a bad case of rashes and eruptions all over.

BTW, this is a very serious case of irresponsible behaviour causing danger to other motorists and the auto driver and the company should be heavily fined.

This is not unusual, I have seen many such instances where such morons overload their vehicles and cause nuisance to other road users.

Scary hell! That auto guy should be dragged out and given some nice dose for playing nuisance on highway & risking the precious lives of other road users.

In Cities & Towns, there are plastic pot vendors who adorn their two-wheelers with all types and colors of plastic pots and utilities.

This is a fantastic sight!

But it would be funnier if you put the first pic last --- save revealing that it is a three-wheeler for the end. makes a great punchline

Glad your friend had the camera handy!

This is going to create a traffic jam in narrow streets or if the coconuts fall in the road.

This certainly is scary! The only part left without those coconut shells is the front wind shield.

I remember one truck guy carrying huge boulders without even flapping the truck's rear cover. My car happened to follow him and I actually saw those boulders dancing. I immediately stopped my car and let that moron drive away, inspite of persistent honks from people following me. That was really scary.

gopi they aint coconuts, its only the husk.

If it falls down, the easier for them to get coir outta it. Vehicles running over them will make the husk even softer and ready to be used.

Jai, whoever took this pic should have gotten a shot with the front number plate showing. Then, should have sent this to TOI, who would happily publish it for all to see. They love these kinda stuff, you see.

That apart, while i was driving to work this morning, came across a TVS50 with side airbags. I am sure most of you get what i mean. Cloth bags which look like airbags on either side. To add to the safety features, the guy riding had his wife sitting behind. In case the damned thing topples, he would still be safe.
