Funny Indian pictures

India is one of the most colourful countries of the world. The Indian people love wearing colourful clothes, doing strange things and not to mention that Indian movies are full of colourful dance sequences. This makes India one of the most photogenic places on earth; hence those travelling to India must take a camera with them to capture the amazing things they might see while in India. No wonder, travellers to India such as Kathryn Burrington, Elle the Solo Female Nomad, Samuel Jeffery and Daniel McBane, all of them have recommended taking a camera with them. I agree with them completely, you never know what you will find in India.

Here are some funny Indian pictures

    Hi Shalu Ji,

    Amazing and humorous collection of pictures from various corners of India. I strongly agree with the pictures depicting bad english. These people have no sense at all, if they don’t understand the language why put up such signs. I don’t know if these people will ever learn.
    Nice post, enjoyed it. 🙂

    Keep up the good work

    Common Shalu, some of them are really hilarious. However, each of the photograph contains a long story, worthy enough to write a post for each of them.

    The first image and the last image, can they be real?

    On a serious note.. the pictures do represent a sad contradiction that India is today.. we are one of the fastest developing nations. India’s Prowess in the technology sectors is respected and acknowledged world wide. Yet there is another India that needs even more attention, help and compassion.. Compassion that will ensure people don’t have to do some of the things they have had to do in the above pictures.

    You made my day Shalu! I personally love that picture of a whole family on an overloaded bike. I’m a traveler too and I’ve seen so many bikers on the road like this. They may be funny to look at and illegal, but then again, I admire their sense of balance, sharing, and the desire to reach their destination no matter what.
