Saw this Maruti Alto at Anna Arch Signal, Chennai with this sticker at the rear and it looks like the driver is a victim of excessive honking happening on Chennai roads! The sticker says "It's no use sounding your horn. I'm deaf"

Was concentrating on the "bullet-proof," Took me some time to realise I should be looking at the "9!"

He definitely has his priorities sorted.

You can see many of such guys at any expo where there are female models.
This guy is just with a mobile, i know of a person who takes an DSLR with a zoom lense to capture details.

At the end, it is frustrating. But the companies know, beautiful models attract the crowd.

Got on WhatsApp.. Don't know if it is already posted earlier..

Dear Car Mfgrs at AutoExpo2016. These are the features we Indians actually need with our cars :

- A spitoon inside the car so that people chewing ghutka can spit inside the car and not outside on the streets
- A 3 foot Titanium grade guard on all 4 sides of our car so that we can bang & shove every Autorickshaw who tries to cut us wrongly
- An extremely dark sun film which automatically covers all our windows everytime a beggar or Hijra approaches our car
- Cable TV inside our car so that we can watch TV as we miserably wait in traffic for hours. Cant afford to miss Arnab Goswami
- A ready reckoner guide on which bad words to give in which situation
- A 480W charged electric mesh on the left side of the car - so that whenever any biker who overtakes from the left and scrapes your car gets the lesson of his life
- A radar system to tell you which Nakabandi is happening where (even though we all know where it happens on a daily basis)
- A radar system to tell you behind which trees are the cops hiding - soon after the traffic lights
- A facility where the car dealer person comes & replaces the nimbu-mirchi under the bonnet every Saturday morning


Phew ! I can go on and on and on

The other alternative we used to talk when we were small, was to keep a refrigerator door open to cool a room.

I think that many people don't actually intuitively grasp that fridges actually heat up the room that they are in!
