The truck stops in India form an ecosystem that builds, repairs, and services trucks. They also provide community for the drivers. The parts for the trucks, including body steel, are delivered by bikes like this Premium Gold Appl.

The owner added a lucky charm to the front fender. He makes his living with this bike.

NGOs work very hard at teaching the drivers and sex workers at these stops about preventing STDs. I’ll cover that in another post.

While you’re at it, I would love it if you could devote some time to the polio fight in India. They are one of the remaining four countries (the others are Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria) worldwide where the disease still exists. For the last 20 years, Rotary has made polio eradication its primary goal and along with the WHO and, recently, the BIll and Melinda Gates Foundation, it looks like it’s on the horizon.
