“Buri Nazar Waale Tera Muh Kaala”

This quote can be seen at the back of nearly every truck in India. This whole sentence means “You who can cast the evil eye, may you be publicly shamed”

Beyond being simple vehicles, trucks become drivers homes, temples, some of them even refer to them as woman or their wives.

Despite all weathers, the truck drivers drive miles and miles to ensure their loads are delivered. They have their lives in their hands and lives of others too on the road.

Many days are spent on the roads away from home and their family - “Buri Nazar Waale Tera Much Kaala” is a sentence to protect their homes, the trucks and themselves in their journeys on the highways of India.
