Regarding the driving question, your advice is good enough for me, for normal conditions. Some stretches, however, especially within an hour of any major Indian city, the traffic is fast AND the distances are low, which is quite nerve-wracking. For instance, Chandigarh - Delhi.
There have been some bad moments when I was ambushed, simultaneously, by two Innovas, each overtaking from one side, so I was sandwiched between these two monsters who cut in from left and right and then promptly braked hard, each trying to get in before the traffic in front, which in any case was uncomfortably close. Bear in mind that there wasn't much space behind to slow down TOO quickly, and these two jerks had cut in from across several car lengths behind.
In close, fast traffic like this, I am really not sure what works.
Just for the record, I have NO problems in letting faster traffic get past. However, I do have problems with people who overtake fast, on the left, across multiple vehicles, bobbing up where least expected.
Ah, well, in Mendelssohn's words, "Calm seas and prosperous voyages" to you.

[quote=bonobashi;1015194Before getting to driving matters, an aside: bonobashi roughly translates to 'lives in the forest'. Don't read any significant meaning into it; just means the equivalent of 'outlier'.[/quote]
Thanks for the education. Interesting nick.
