Ride On @ Lonavala!

I notice this on the roads everywhere, in Chennai, in Hyderabad, Bangalore, now in Pune.    Today i went on a tour of Lonavala, a hill station.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             On the way back i saw this couple riding very near our car.  Though our car and the couple on the scooter were moving at a speed I managed to take this picture of them.                                                                                                                                                                                                          I have always wondered how it is possible for the man to focus on the road ride despite so much physical distraction from behind.  Are they not putting themselves as well as others to a risk of accident?  The other drivers and pedestrians get so distracted by such a sight that most of the vehicles begin to alter their speeds with that of the couple just to continue to get as much viewing time as possible until routes or destinations does them apart!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Why such a public display of what should be strictly done behind closed doors?  Hope good sense will prevail and public behavior like this one ends through some means if only to save the riders and the public who are witness to such scenes on the road everyday.                                                                                                                                                                                   Mahalakshmi                                                                                                                                                                                                    Ride in Lonavala.jpg
