On 16 December 2013, dump truck driver Sunil Yadav was speeding along a city road in Adajan, India. A hapless scooter, carrying two school girls got in his way and he drove over the top of them.
The result was instant death for Nishtha Patel, 18 and Kshama Mehta, 17. The scooter was damaged too. Interfering locals covered the smushed heads prior to the pictures being taken.
As a citizen of a country with numerous Indian drivers, mainly of taxis, I can confirm they are a menace. Indicators are optional, there is never more than one hand on the steering wheel, and the brake and accelerator are often being depressed at the same time. Successful navigation from origin to destination seems more a matter of chance and the skill of other motorists in avoiding them.
And then there is the odour. Indians are the most unpleasant smelling of all humans. As a result, of the races inhabiting the Eurasian landmass, Indian women are the least likely I would have sex with. Sorry Nishtha and Kshama, you just aren’t my type.
