photoblog image OK Tata

OK Tata

A Tata truck. Tata Motors, a part of the Tata Group, builds automotive products ranging from passenger cars, trucks, vans, buses, earth moving equipment to military vehicles. 

 

This is a LNG carrier truck and was seen parked outside a facility that sends piped LNG to households in the vcinity. I believe the red sign indicates flamability of the contents. The eye, on the other side, supposedly signifies the all-seeing entity which will anticipate all obstacles and problems and steer clear. I found that similar to the Chinese practice of painting eyes on their sea faring vehicles.

Well seen Ayush, ( no pun intended smile ) I think it is a common practice in many countries to paint eyes on boats.
What if the truck winks at you?
Great shot!!! Love that little detail!
How very special, Ayush. And now, tata for now. grin

Fascinating Ayush - we live & learn
Tata also own Jaguar Land Rover, but, as yet, have not started painting eyes on them grin

Well let hope it word, then. You really don't want to be involved in an accident with one of these.

The all seeing eye is very useful if the driver falls asleep at the wheel ;o)
Great capture Ayush! I like the wink.
I have had a look at your past week's posts and I enjoyed them.
Interesting capture, Ayush.
It will take more than the all seeing eye to prevent an accident in that mad country. I know having done the 'Golden Triangle'. This 'all seeing eye' looks like it belongs to a female, perhaps that has more power. Just love it. Its what makes your country so special.

The paintings give the vehicle character.

Excellent!

A lot of river boats have eyes, too, in Thailand, Ayush.
Lovely truck, Ayush. The eye looks a little sad.
