Very sorry for Bomi and his family and friends. It seems he was the victim of a completely senseless accident caused by an extremely careless truck driver. While only those at the scene know the exact circumstances, I have been on Indian highways and I would advise motorists and bikers to be extra careful in giving trucks as wide a berth as possible. As in this unfortunate instance, they can be death on wheels with likely an idiot at the wheel. Perhaps this sort of cavalier disregard for human life can be checked if the companies or individuals who own these trucks can suffer tough legal consequences -- as they do in some countries.
