  14. Sheesh! I would be a little ticked if that was my truck. Maybe the owner should park it elsewhere?

  17. Would you call them graffiti, Magiceye? Isn't graffiti the art of the oppressed? Isn't this more a right of "passage" art into the heart of Maharashtra past the cops, the goons, the mafia...

    1. I submit that you are absolutely correct in your observation Bhavana. However my view is that Graffiti as the art of the oppressed was the origin but now it has grown into an art form and what is displayed on the truck can be termed as Territorial graffiti to establish identity and yes as a 'right of passage' past the oppressors. :)

    2. wonderfully put, magiceye!! New term in my dictionary--territorial graffiti!

  18. I have been always afraid of these trucks ... they look sinister to me :) but a great shot !

  19. The white colourlooks nice. Not many trucks have white. Surely would have some interesting writing on the back of it. Nice pic.
