FEB 26, 13 .. TRAFFIC? .. IN PONDICHERRY? .. NO! .. PART I ..

Traffic?  In Pondicherry?  Come on!  You must be kidding!


Well you MUST remember that after all 'Pondi' IS located in INDIA!  So you can not take this fact away from 'Pondi'!  In the following few photos even Crocodile Dundee himself would exclaim!  "NOW THAT'S TRAFFIC MATE!"


So here we go .. feast your eyes on TRAFFIC!  On 'wall-to-wall' traffic!
The below photo is taken along an entirely different street!  If you don't believe me .. just study the background of each photo .. NO .. I have not found 'the one and the only' busy street in Pondicherry to photograph some traffic!  Of course it does letup from time to time .. and somehow you do manage to work your way across the streets !  Ah .. very VERY carefully !
How about this?   What YOU .. looking at these photos are missing is the NOISE!  The seemingly  never-ending 'DIN' of horns constantly honking!  The 'action' at intersections is WILD!  Sometimes you have 'gridlock' and traffic in all directions just 'freezes up' and comes to a complete HALT!  Then .. somehow .. it gets itself 'untangled' and away they all go!  AMAZING! 
I mean they 'fly' into intersections going fast!  How they manage to avoid constant collisions I will never know! 
And .. when the traffic clears as you see below .. and it does indeed clear from time to time .. THEN you cross the street .. 
For now I will say .. "That's all folks !"

Sure it IS pretty funny EXCEPT that it is also seriously and downright DANGEROUS!  Calcutta traffic ranks as the most dangerous for me personally!  

One of the WORST phenomenons is this:  When you are crossing a one-way street .. you are looking at the direction from whence the traffic is coming .. to your right or to your left.  Then suddenly .. going the wrong-way-up-the-one-way-street .. a motorcycle 'blasts' past you!  So you MUST look both ways even on one-way streets!  Sometimes the traffic works its way up onto the sidewalks!

Lucky to have survived twenty two (22) years of India Traffic!
