Dashboard offerings.

At an informal station near the Ayutthaya market, Bordeaux and I encountered several rows of brightly painted metal buses. They were left abandoned, doors open, waiting to be explored. On the dashboards of each bus were a bright array of offerings; plastic garlands, fresh fruit, and luridly painted ceramic gods.

How beautifully, wonderfully Indian! The last photo has Ganesh astride the dashboard, looking wonderfully at ease and in control. As he should. He looks after our every day affairs (as well as many other things). Jai Ganapati Aum.

So beautiful that taxis, trucks and buses become mobile shrines in effect.
