The funeral of Shri Jawaharlal Nehru after his death on 27/05/1964 at Delhi. A sea of humanity is seen mourning the loss of the leader.
It was almost as if a family member passed away for every Indian - so revered was he then.

Rajeevji, I got a few links which you can please try:
Older Rally Pictures From the Orange City - Nagpur - Team-BHP

http://www.nagpurpulse.com/image-galleries/old-nagpur

Meanwhile here is another picture, not essentially a traffic scene picture but is linked to an old picture on Shri Jawaharlal Nehru's funeral posted here. The picture is from a Times group magazine and the location is Teen Murti House, the then residence of the PM in New Delhi:

Once upon a time, Pune used to have a lot of these beatiful Tata Mercedes Benz buses as well as these double deckers. But these slowly dissappeared by the end of the millenium

Going crazily off topic, why does the horse statue have his tail straight like that?

Lovely, thanks for sharing. I remember this Poona. And, she was calm and tranquil till the late 70s, in fact to a relative extent even till the early 80s.

Leyland - Austin, very interesting. It seems Ashok was able to persue a commercial tie-up, Bilra did not allow Austin cars into India and tr=hey were already dabbling with Morris

Red Fort, Delhi here. In my Calcutta post, Ambassadors had appeared in the last picture and similarly here too the Ambassador has reappeared.
(all other pictures are from delcampe.net)

These pictures were posted yesterday, but due to some technical reasons could not be viewed by fellow teambhpians. I hope they are OK today. The first post that says its OK - "all is well" gets my THANKS.
