Wearing a helmet while riding a two-wheeler is essential for safety. The helmet protects the head in case of accidents or collisions, reducing the risk of severe head injuries or fatalities. Helmets absorb impact energy and provide cushioning, safeguarding the brain and skull from trauma. Thus, wearing a helmet is mandated by the government in many places.

But have you seen any person wearing a helmet while riding an animal? Though people wear helmets while horse riding, it is rare to see a person riding a buffalo and it will be more shocking to see the person wearing a helmet.

Recently, a video surfaced on the internet that shows a person wearing a helmet while riding on a buffalo.

In the video, the man can be seen sitting on the buffalo while the animal is running fast on a busy road. Just like a horse rider, the man is seated on the buffalo while holding the rope tied around the animal's neck.

While a bus can be heard honking on the busy road and several other commuters can be seen passing by, the man without hesitating seems to be enjoying his ride.

Though the video's original source couldn't be verified, it is shared on Instagram by comedydoze24 with a caption reading: Lagtta Hai Yamraj Chutti pe hain. (sic)

Yamraj, also known as Yama, is the Hindu God of death and justice. The God of death is often depicted riding a buffalo.

The video has gone viral on social media amassing views and comments. Well, the video has triggered mixed reactions from netizens. While some expressed their concern for the buffalo, others enjoyed watching the man riding on it and penned down hilarious comments.
