    Wow, the pics are simply amazing!
    I’ve driven on some pretty scary roads myself such as the road from Chamba to Bharmour in Himachal Pradesh, where some of the portions along the Ravi used to be really dicey, especially when the Chamera project was under construction.

    A friend of mine suggested to add a fews pics of Bangalore roads, they are also quite scary to drive on 🙂

    I also remember the road from Kulu-Manali when the Bhakra-Nangal Dam was being made and the roads were a constant state of slush in the monsoons, a truck actually nudged our Fiat a bit outward towards the khudside. A truly petrifying moment. My father is a brave heart when it comes to driving, he once drove us accross this rope bridge that consisted only of wooden planks, again the Kulu-manali area.

    Ah, I love Bangalore, potholes and all!

    Bombay roads are far worse, especially since the BMC decides to repave only the good roads and ignore the bad ones till the point that roads in Bihar are better in comparison. Also, in Bombay when they redo the roads the concretize them, but never bother digging deep enough, so the result is that the sidewalks in many areas are actually lower than the roads!! We have a fire hydrant across our apt, where only the top 8 inches is showing now. This is how the BMC deals with roads that floods…..by diverting the water to a new road!!

    Really sorry for taking over your comment space…I seem to have enough fodder on roads it seems, to write not just a blog post but an entire blog!
