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.
It was a hot day in the southern most town of the southern most state, Tamil Nadu.
While waiting, burning and sweating some went for the bushes, maybe to pee, maybe to visit relatives in the neighborhood beyond or maybe went home by foot. Others improvised sun shades from shopping bags, hanckerchiefs, towels, etc.
Looking at the assortment of vehicles passing by we could now envy these stuffed up in an autorickshaw loaded to and over the top or a family of 4 squeezed together on a moped.
