Driving In India or Organized Chaos

I just found this post on my fellow blogger Sajid Azmi's post and couldn't resist putting it here. But please go to Sajid's blog as well, because he has some great things to share with you also. Thanks.

As Sajid says, "That's how we drive in India..lots of courage...lots of anticipation..lots of risk :)"
