Observations Of India (Bangalore Style)  
These may not be truths as such, they are simply things I have personally noticed. You have been warned...

Men dress mostly in pastels and beiges and tend to look dusty and a bit dingy. Women dress in beautiful bright colors, with saris that seem to never get dirty even when sitting sidesaddle on the back of a motorbike.

There is little in this world as incongruous as a woman in a gorgeous purple sari draped in jewelry and driving a motorbike while sporting a bulky, black, well-worn, full-visor helmet.

If you have a road with a single dashed line down the middle, how many lanes are there? The answer - at least 3.

For the sheer chaos of the traffic, very few cars seem to have dents or dings. Either this means it is all an illusion, or there is a pretty active repair shop business. The former seems more likely, as I have yet to witness any bumps or crashes of any kind.

Most of the food here is nowhere near as hot as I expected it to be. I'd have said "all" up until Saturday lunch...

That's where the "at least" comes in, mon frere.
