I love riding, but I'm not sure I'd have the... courage... to do it over there. Driving in India is the bare-knuckle boxing of the motorist world. If there are lines, cross them (lanes are more of a rough suggestion of how cars could be spaced). If there is a one-way that goes in the wrong direction, go the wrong way. Feel free to force other vehicles onto the shoulder just so you can go where you want. If you have some cash ready (they LOVE US dollars) you'll never get a ticket. Oh, and make sure to talk with your horn.
There is no such thing as cutting somebody off; the entire mentality is that it's the responsibility of the vehicles behind you to react to your actions.
On a side note, if you want a hilariously terrifying ride, tell the cab driver that you'll give him a big tip if he gets you there quickly.
