This photo was taken at Gorghare Chowk of Gauradaha Municipality, Jhapa, Nepal. It was taken during festival 'Dashain'; the greatest festival for people having faith in Hinduism. It depicts the risky life of people, traveling over-crowded in a small pick-up van. Since traffic is too high during festivals, people are forced to travel at a great risk, as they don't have any option either. The driver is seemed to be in great hurry to drive his van. The people in the van, though knowing of the risk, are waiting for the van to move on.Two people (perhaps a couple) are arguing outside. The man seems to be insisting the lady to travel through the same van, while the lady seems to be refusing.
