    VERY funny especially the title of this blog.
    But a lot of lessons on human behaviour can be learned from this video. If I am teaching again I would be using this video a lot.
    Thanks for sharing

    I love the video clip. However, as far as complex adaptive systems go, this looks like mild traffic for India. There aren’t even any cows on the road to have to manouvre around. I would suggest it is merely a matter of survival having been a passenger many time in an autorickshaw – but thankfully never been asked to drive.

    Brings back many memories. We lived in Pakistan for 2 years as well as a few other places with similar norms. Interesting that the traffic flows fairly freely in all directions (ie 360 degrees) until one car turning right insists on barging across and a few other use it as cover. Only then does a bank up occur.
