How can I put it – there must be something more behind an invasion of combine harvesters but regrettably I did not discover what it was. On the road to a lovely hill resort called Pachmarhi in Madya Pradesh the road was completely taken over with these enormous bright green, orange and red combine harvesters. There was always a considerable contingent of young men sitting atop them and they always had one motorcycle strapped to their front.
Off on a collective combine harvester puja? Enjoying a day out on the roads rather than the fields? Who knows! It made driving in between them a bit like a bit like an ant trying to overtake an elephant but we got there in the end. More on the Hill resort next.
