The drive from Jaipur further north toward Chandigarh is rather annoying via the NH8. Again, full of trucks, construction and densely packed towns on either side (plus very bad roads, a lots and lots and lots of road construction this year) and I just want to avoid this road.
So take the bypass from Rewari via Rohtak reach Panipat. This stretch of the road is excellent, four lanes, farms and trees on either side, very little traffic, but not enough good food to find. (please excuse the photos shot via 'smartphone' through the windshield. I still prefer images shot through a proper camera.)
The main highways inside Punjab too are full of tremendous traffic. It seems there is no space anywhere. Continuous, almost non-stop habitation and cities on either Side of the highways make for a boring drive. I have to find alternatives. However, the food is excellent.
