@hrag - Forget about his head boss, he obviously has "kalimannu" (clay) inside his head or he is absolutely nutty!

I think he likes to cut to the chase.

This thread has a lot of potential - I hope fellow members don't disappoint. Come on boys & girls, unleash your creativity.

But isn't that a little bit of a cheesy cut?

After a crash, if he survives, he can say 'baal baal bachaa'. He'd be very right.
Bas baal hi baal bachenge.

Guys give him a break please.
He is so thin and fragile and his mother warned him if he rode a bike he may fly out so he was just trying to be safe

Come on guyz.. he is just going about for his job just like everyone else.. we carry our "laptops" and he is also doing the same, only thing is that it is too large to fit on his lap.
Comments on the lungi: Being a mallu, I must say- "only a person who has worn a lungi knows how comfortable it is" I have seen lots of foreigners who visit Kerala wearing lungi's once they master the art of keeping it on. Total air conditioning. It needs special talent to keep it tied to your waist even if you are riding 120 kmph. Before you comment on the color of his lungi....look closely. The color is SAFFRON. Usually worn by guys who are inclined towards BJP and RSS in particular.
The "saw" in this picture is kind of a flexible saw, which has two handles on both sides, used mainly to cut down big trees and then cut them into smaller transportable pieces. I would agree that it looks dangerous. Let us hope he reached his destination in one piece.

This and the Jayan one had me in splits !....

The thingy coiled around his waist is in reality the blade that is used for cutting huge wodden logs to size for use in carpentry , wood mills in kerala typically stock a couple of these for use in the event of a breakage .... I guess this guy was given the task of taking one of the spare ones to the blacksmith to sharpen its edges to make it usable. It is definitley not the chuttuvaaal ! or the felxible saw !

But the thing that had me and my wife in splits was the fact that after they guy realised that he was being photographed , he actually adjusted his goggles and smiled at the camera as if he was a star....

Would have paid big bucks to see that smile after he jumped over the next unmarked hump or the unexpected pothole especially at the speed he was doing when we saw him last ....

I completely agree with the amazing comfort levels of the lungi but , it definitley would not be my choice of attire if i was to deal with sharp, heavy objects like the saw ...

No comments on the political inclination of the attire though !
