India's Border Patrol Performs Incredible Feats on Motorbikes, Wow

I'm 99.9 per cent sure that I'm neither qualified nor eligible to join India's Border Security Force, but if I could, I would demand to be assigned to the Daredevil Team. This week, the Daredevil Team dressed in fatigues and donned helmets — safety first! — to wow the crowds at the India Republic Day parade. And wow.

According to the Puffin History of India for Children, the Daredevil Team "performs incredible feats on motorcycles." Don't believe a children's history book? Check out these photos from this year's India Republic Day. First the preparation:
