ridin' high

 
Often the trains are so packed that people choose to put their lives in serious risk by riding on the top. I assume they are also probably riding without a valid ticket! This train had many people riding on the top, but by the time I got my camera out it was just these two guys who were more than happy to have their photo taken. This train is passing through Dharavi, near Mahim station. Posted by Picasa

In many other countries, people do this on top of buses also.

Wow, scary.

I like your font! On my computer it's showing up as comic sans. Wish I had it on my blog. :)

Travelling on top of bus would be "safer". Mumbai trains have live electrical wire on the top. Accidentally touching that wire means death by being toast...

Brilliant shot, enlightening story - but frightening too!
And nobody tries to get them to come down?
