Indian bus drivers don't go under.

Rather then be overwhelmed, destroyed, or defeated they hit the pavement, literally and get to work.

Indian rural buses are essentially trucks converted to passenger carriers. They have to be to survive the collection of pot holes named: Indian country roads, but sometimes even that is not enough and it boils to a breakdown.

The bus drove through town and then started climbing the road on the outskirts when it suddenly stopped. It stopped a lot, but this time it kept standing. The conductor and driver stepped off and then we passengers did to.

Soon the driver in his clean and ironed uniform crawled under the bus to jack up the axle with rocks.
