indian school bus - overloaded car (india)

School children clinging on overloaded school jeep in Meghalaya (India)

This is the Indian version of a school bus.­

The girls are inside, while the boys are on the roof and clinging to the back.­

Jeeps take as much passengers as possible, there is no maximum occupation or maximum load rules in India!
