Traffucked for Life: Humans of the Mumbai Traffic Jam

P

icture this: Your bike screeches to a stop, merely inches away from a taxi’s bumper. You scream at the cabbie, saying he did terrible things to his sister. He doesn’t hear you though, as he is too busy screaming at the guy ahead accusing him of doing terrible things to his mother. The guy ahead is too engrossed trying to
manoeuvre his car round a crater-sized pothole. And so on, and so forth, all the way to the signal, where the
traffic cop echoes every gaali back to the teeming column of motorists with a venomous glare. The characters of an Mumbai traffic jam are all of us and every day we do this dance of death with invectives as our props. It might seem hostile to some, but it’s an everyday affair for us. Here is the cast of the movie called Traffucked For Life, the Mumbai edition.
