    This gave me a good laugh. Great stuff!

    I love how everyone has their own very unique take on the same topic for the writing project.

    Hey, Rajaram, welcome back to the project! I loved this – it reinforced my resolve to never drive in India! (Actually, I had the same experiences in Sao Paolo, Brazil, too.)

    Thanks for participating!

    That’s gold – thanks for sharing. Sounds like India and China are working hard to improve and advance the cause of nano-technology! 😉

    Mr.RAJARAM, People are so sarcastic about Indian road and Drivers (Being an Indian even you do that and no wonder BRITISH ruled INDIA with countable no of soldiers ). The basic point in driving is that you should not hit anybody. I think we do that in INDIA (The point I am making here is you can drive the way u want but should not cause any danger to others life. We do that very well in INDIA). I have been driving in Chennai, coimbatore and Tirupur (cities of Tamilnadu) for almost 7 years and the amount of accident that I have seen there is really less. In India you always expect people to make mistakes while driving and but in foreign countries you really do not expect others to make mistakes. If somebody makes any mistake , it will really be terrible. I am driving in UK (where we think it is safe to drive)for almost 2 years and I could see the same amount of accidents here.STOP MAKING FUN OF INDIA…HOPE U CAN UNDERSTAND AND ACT ACCORDINGLY MR.RAJARAM….
