Only In India: Delaying Drivers For HONKING At Traffic Lights.

In today’s U.K. ‘Daily Mail’. I found the YouTube video below.

Brilliant. No other word for it.

The YouTube video (above) explains it ALL — including the propensity to honk even when they can see that the light is RED. That is what makes Indians so special and why I could never be an Indian.

But, here is the sad thing. I am fairly certain that you can’t teach Indians, young or old, any new tricks. Yes, dogs tend to be more talented! So, this technology is going to totally confound the buggers. Trust me on this. I have lived in India, I have visited India too many times and I know a LOT of Indians. They will not learn. This will be so funny. It could lead to riots.

Some similarities to the 18-year old surviving after being hit by a train in Sri Lanka that I posted a few days ago.

This one is even MORE mystifying. She turns around and heads straight into the tain. Luckily she was NOT run over. And that is what makes all the difference. I guess she was small enough that she was not hurt by the ‘cow catcher’ at the front. After she escaped that it was kind of ‘plain sailing’ though the noise would have been horrendous.

I was in a train in India, in the mid-1960s, that ran over a man! I was like 12 – 13 and terrified. I did NOT go to look. We were ‘there’, i.e., on the train, for hours while they retrieved the body.
