To get back to a favourite topic of mine. I've always found it interesting how absolute strangers work together to pull a temple car, weighing several tonnes, around the narrow streets. Except for a handful, most are novices or at best regular visitors. The steering is rudimentary and each wheel has to be nudged around the corners using large beams. Maintaining a straight line is also quite a job. Here are a few pics that try to capture that detail. The temple car here is that of the Parthasarathy Temple at Triplicane, Chennai.
