Crossed Lines

If you’ve ever been disconnected from a phone call made to India, perhaps the photos below will illustrate why. Then again, it’s a wonder those pesky Indian telemarketers can actually get a connection to your home thousands of miles away. These photos, which appeared recently on, clearly display the shabby state of communications in some parts of the world’s second-most populous country.

  1. Far out...

    Imagine all the electro-magnetic radiation that would be spewing out too...



  2. The inside of my brain feels a bit like those wires sometimes. Those are great photos.

  3. Hey Spoon...
    Imagine the telephone repairmen - they must have some crazy kinda blueprint for what wire goes where...

    "Nah man!...don't cut that wire!"

  4. Hey Lidian...
    :) I know what you mean...!

  5. Lovely post. We find similar situations in Pakistan too. Almost similar photos can be made available. I will try to get one myself and post :)

  6. looks like jungle vines, some sort of post apocalyptic distopia.

  7. @Whisper - love to see some photos man...

    @Bill - nice way of putting it.
