overloaded jeep taxi - TATA spacio (india)


Local villagers clinging on overloaded jeep taxi in Meghalaya (India)

Jeep taxis and local buses take as much freight and passengers as possible, there is no maximum occupation or maximum load rules in India!

I took this series of photos in a village in the East Khasi Hills, a region of the Meghalaya State in North-East India, inhabited by the Khasi people.­

For more info about the Khasi people, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Khasi_­people.

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
