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.

India for kids

  2. 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



  3. 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?

    • Hi Suresh,
      I agree completely with you that each photo is a long story in itself. As far as originality is concerned, I won’t be surprised if it was not. Thanks for your comment and hope to see you here again.

  4. The man carrying bricks was very weird …how the hell
    he is seeing , balancing and pedaling ?

    And “accident porn area” must be caption for the elephant photo !

  5. Hi Shalu,

    You have posted some very C-O-O-L images here! They are real life images! The cyclist with the bricks is a AMAZING one! I have never been to India. Your photo share makes the country even more interesting!

    Awesome post, Shalu 🙂 🙂

  6. Hi Shalu Ji…..
    I would like to say thanks for sharing these funny pics…. I was too much busy in my office work load since last couple of weeks…..your article have freshed up my mind……
    Thanks once again

  7. It made me laugh really! Thanks for collecting all of them Shalu, especially the family in bike one. I’ve seen 7 members of a family on a single bike in Karachi. All of them are cool images Shalu.

  8. 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.

          • Shalujee.. here’s a link to the post on which I have used some of the pictures above.


            Many thanks. Hopefully you would find the time to read and comment (that would be much appreciated).
            Also if you have suggestions or preferences on how I needed to link back to your site (from the post) Please do let me know.

          • Shalujee..I thought I wouldn’t do it.. but here goes.

            Here’s my attempt for the get published contest.
            vote for it only if you like it.

            The inspiration for the lead protagonist comes from bloggers with a strong presence like yourself.

            Thank you so much for your consideration

  9. I had an amazing time flicking through the pictures. The entire family travelling on a single scooter or bike is quite a common sight in our country. I had a nice time laughing while glancing through the pics. Thanks for sharing.

  10. 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.

  11. Here’s a big LOL for the funny pictures that you have posted. I definitely laughed out loud when I saw them. I mean, even if you’re not green-minded, you’d really enjoy scrolling through them and they’re worth your post. Please keep posting more and more valuable articles about the beauty that is India.

  12. These wonderful pictures just made my day. Not only did I laugh hearily but I also admired the Indian spirit of giving, of sharing what they have and the spirit of striving for the best even if they have to look a bit funny doing it.

  13. Hi Shalu,

    I guess the most famous picture i.e people sitting above the train as seen in Bihar is missing from this list. It will be definitely funny for people from other states.

    Best Regards,

  14. OMG!!! i show them to my mom and she say that that’s something she will see in Cuba LMAO!!! soooo funny thanks for making my day so happy. 😉

  15. What an awesome collection of Indian Picture, Thanks Shalu Sharma providing this really funny stuff… Nice Blog, Keep Posting

  16. really amazing and funny pictures. How the photographer take a great picture above. I’d also ever seen a picture from Pakistan about the train which is full of passenger on the roof

  17. I happen to be commenting to let you know of the terrific encounter my cousin’s princess gained going through your blog. She learned a wide variety of pieces, including how it is like to have an incredible helping style to get other folks without hassle learn about a variety of complex subject areas. You truly did more than her expected results. Thanks for displaying the valuable, trusted, explanatory and even unique tips about your topic to her.

  18. India is still devoloping with a population over 130 crores. So you can understand the space they live in, these pictures are the perfect example for those kind of situations. Thanks for sharing such lovely pictures.

  19. Of approximately a thousand separate species of bats worldwide,
    there are 44 known species found on the North American
    continent. The back arm should also form a letter “L”, with the elbow
    facing down. During the winter when the bats are hibernating, try
    not to disturb them.

  20. ha!ha!ha!
    I am a world traveler. Last month, I traveled Nepal and was planned for india but for some political issues in india I didn’t traveled there, but now everything Okay. I must be travel india in few months. Thanks a lot for sharing, hahaha!
