Really nice. Good old Mumbai. Wow, orange juice is still Rs. 3.00.

Taken in Kochi, but arguably an omnipresent phenomenon in our country. Smile

Do you know why teenagers hate school?
Because they get to miss a few unwanted visitors like this:

CMB of course!

I posted this before as well, but you know you are in trouble when your internet isn't working if you are staying in this part of CCU!


Also, there is a picture of watermelons, being sold as 'grapes', I can't find that Shocked

I think I should go back into hibernation then...

What the heck is that in the first photo!?

Looks like a dinosaur's descendant. I hate creepy-crawlies of any kind, btw.

It looks like a baby Monitor Lizard. Lots of them in Sri Lanka. They are generally harmless but can give a nasty bite if provoked.

Thanks for starting this innovative thread, Ameya!
I am sure you can't get a glass of real orange juice at Rs.3 Smile It must be an old sign that the owner never bothered to update.

We can have a series here on the various homilies we find on the back of vehicles on Indian roads!

"India is Great" is a common one but then you find odd ones like "Buri nazarwale tera muh kaala" or the one I found this time in Calcutta " Dekhle hobe kharcha aache. Loose translation will be "Don't come too close to appreciate my beauty, may result in big expenses" Smile

Oh wow! That's less than what the BMC charge us to park for a day and far less than what Sahar Airport charge for 10 minutes!

I like Malay that way. All these "English Spelling Mistakes" are proper words there.

Sample this - Kolej, Ekspres, sos, invois, kredit, eksport, birokrasi, korporat, insentif, kaunseling ... why get confused with silent Ps and unnecessary double letters!!
