I love this video, the Canadian truck driver on Indian roads is typical reaction from foreigners, yet there is actually a sense to the madness, although on mountain roads it comes across as ever more dangerous.

Surreal experience of westerners on Indian roads is primarily due to their driving education, which assumes oncoming traffic should not be disturbed in any way… in India it is in reverse: please disturb!  On coming traffic will automatically adjust to the flow of vehicles…within a limit of course, and there are plenty of accidents as a result, but knowing how to drive on Indian roads is an art and a science too, but it simply does not follow the same rational rules one follows in the west.
