Traditional horse carriages called tangas continue to be a common mode of transportation in South Asia. Tangas are often decorated in bright colors with lots of colorful pompoms. Be sure to look closely at the above image so you don't miss the additional rear-view mirror (possibly from a motorcycle) perched on the side of this one.
