Driving through India

Lindsay Houts Published: February 8, 2013

After a week and a half, I was finally in a home where I could upload video. I realized (too little, too late) that the video I have of driving isn’t a very good example of the total insanity that is driving in India. If you can get behind the wheel in India and not die (for any amount of time/distance), I’m convinced that you can drive anywhere in the world.

I’ll get some better video of driving, but for now, here’s a look from the passenger seat at Agra. The first is a fairly good representation of an average street in a smaller Indian city. Dirt, trash, street vendors, smog, stray dogs, children all over the place, and lots of color.

From what I understand, most homes like these are built on government land by people who are squatters, more or less. I noticed similar shanty-like homes today while in Patiala that were dotted with satellite dishes. Seemed odd.
