It Hapens Only In India



Well, maybe it happens elsewhere in the world, but I like to believe that we are the only country in the world to have a traffic jam because an elephant was in the mood for some leaves. While most of the other drivers on the road were agitated by this one-off episode, I had a gala time looking at one of my favourite animals in full majestic bloom. His highness, did not even seem a tad bit bothered by the honking that we Delhiites are so famous for. :-)

So what is the oddest thing you have ever spotted on your roads?

Nice post Pri. And it surely happens only in India, no doubt about that.

Cat fight: I saw a group of cats fighting it out in the middle of a sleepy street in my hometown Jammu once. Although there was not traffic jam because of that, it was a bylane, a large crowd had gathered around the cats, who seemed unmindful of the "scene" they had created. I can never forget the scene, it was hillarious and frightening, all at the same time and the cacophony of voices when cats are fighting, has to be heard to believe.

Very nice pic!

I have seen a group of cows and horses in separate incidents standing peacefully in the middle of roads... and the drivers had to get down the vehicles to push them to footpath.

Funny days... but again.. it happens only in india!

I've never spotted such an exciting "traffic jam reason" in the streets here in Minnesota! Namaste!
