      Your description of Indian trucks has one large mistake, most of the Indian trucking industry is ruled by Tata and Ashok Leyland trucks and none of them have their roots in Bedford trucks. Ashok Leyland trucks have their roots in Leyland trucks and Tata trucks have their roots in Mercedes Benz trucks.

      There's a similar thing in Panamá. They're called Diablos Rojos. Really old busses with no AC. But they're beautiful

                                              I'm an Indian and still I hadn't seen truck art in this way.. this was something very usual to me..but now I got to know that there's an industry of truck painters..this really is fascinating..
                                              I would like to point out one more thing - there is always some fun message written on the truck which brings smile to your face..
                                              Thanks for the video. :)

                                                                                    Here in the UK lorry drivers are allowed to decorate the inside of their cab but are not allowed to make any external or permanent alterations. That is because no-one can afford to buy a lorry so they are either rented or owned by a company.

                                                                                    Here long haul drivers also work very long dangerous hours; there are so many similarities all over the world.

                                                                                    • Abhijit Mendhe

                                                                                      @Sammy Ariel perhaps it's cultural, this preference for uniformity and order. Or maybe not. This is happening in India as companies start getting bigger, beyond the family franchise to more corporatized entities.

                                                                                    • Sammy Ariel

Thanks anyway, I love truck art and have seen them in the UK in Pakistani communities.
