More than just workspace

Operating on the Mumbai-Nashik route, this taxi doubles up as a makeshift bedroom for overnight stays away from home. The open hatch and windows provide fresh air and the custom built nets keep the mosquitoes away.

Idling Engines

Spotted this sign at a rest area on a US Highway.

The law aims to reduce emissions by preventing truck drivers from leaving their engines running when parked at rest areas. The truck drivers on the other hand prefer to keep the engine idling to maintain comfortable cabin temperatures (heating/air conditioning).

Still, I find it quite strange that a law is needed to prevent engine idling.

Lot of Salmans too among American truck drivers

Scary ride

An auto rickshaw done-up in a really cool theme.

Notice the skulls and blood on both sides of the the dash board and the magnetic compass instead of a speedometer :)

A message to the passengers.

Some more art-work to scare the passengers. (Click on the image to see the details like coffins, zombies)

Feroz, the owner who's made all the art-work himself using 'radium' stickers. He's worked for a TV serial (horror of-course) titled Aahat which is inspiration for the theme. In the words of the owner "Full gaadi horror hai".
Apart from driving the auto, working for TV serials, he also makes scaled models of buildings etc. for architects.

Keep safe distance

This auto will never get rear-ended. Never EVER.

Some products for the slimming market work to reduce one's appetite. This product claims to work the other way. Should work well for the plethora of foodies/gourmets/gourmands seen on TV these days.

Similar canvas bags can be spotted in Europe in small shops that sell quirky stuff. Apparently they're trendy.

Evil eye

Truckers usually prefer to blacken the face of those who cast an evil eye. Not this one though. And it's got a better rhyme too (वाले-खाले)

God and Human

This trucker makes an interesting observation on God's privileges.
