Saw this White i20 at Spice Mall Sector 25, Noida today evening. The worst thing is that the graphics on both sides are different. The owner did not follow a similar design and above all that bull on the bonnet is really silly.

I have always loved the cute little sticker on the old Maruti 800's that said - "When I grow up I will be a Mercedes".

Saw a rashly driven Force Traveller last week (some company cab for sure) with a huge sign on the rear doors saying "DUDE WTF?"
Sorry no picture!

Apologies for a poor picture, but I was driving solo and saw this on a dark stretch of the road on the back of a Safari.

I know the Guru has a legion of admirers, but maybe this is Fan No 1

May be you didn't know that there is a FB Group with a lot of members from here who sport these stickers. Not sure what is Weird, Whacky or Funny here.

The group represents travelers and roadies and doesn't promote the Guru alone !

HVK apart from his initials actually stands for "HiVayKing"

I have one in my WagonR, though a smaller version on the fenders and have been spotted whenever I have taken up drives beyond states:

Oh ! Didn't know that. And didn't mean to call it weird, whacky or funny. Just "interesting" and lazily put it in this thread

As Parag has explained, there is nothing "Guru" about these stickers.

These stickers were introduced 2 years ago by the members of this online FB community (not mentioning names here), which is now 11,000+ members strong, designed jointly by members.

The sticker - like those of many online communities - does not mention my name anywhere. You will note that it is referring to HVK as the HiVayKing, and not as H V Kumar.

The members of this community have these stickers in their cars - and over 10 sticker packs are despatched daily - and they are plastered all over India, especially in hotels & other establishments patronised by the Community's members.

P.S. Mods, I am not promoting any online group here, just drawing attention to the facts behind the sticker which appears to have been thought of as some kind of self-deification of myself, and hence the need to supplement what Parag has already said. YOu may delete this if you think inappropriate.

No offence meant at all in my post , and if even remotely implied, many apologies. Never ever intended to imply self promotion from you. We all hold you in much esteem and regard you with respect to do that.

By the way, we consider you as a Guru and no amount of protesting is going to change that

What can be a 'shinning' example than this for road safety.
Saw this 'man with a golden helmet' on Bannerghatta road Bangalore two weeks back. The helmet is made golden in color by pasting golden paper sheets.

I thought the focus was good and clicked, but unfortunately.......
But I still had to share.
The red boxed portion says " Main tumhe pyaar nahi karti hu".
("I dont love you")


But why?

Hah - looks like the heat-reflective gold film they use on the lunar lander and McLaren F1 engine bay!

Maybe he's an engineer
The same reflective properties have made gold a valuable coating for engineers in terrestrial settings. A thin coating of gold plating in windows reflects heat radiation, helping to keep buildings cool in summer and warm in winter, which lowers their energy costs and carbon emissions. In Toronto, Canada, all 14,000 windows on the Royal Bank Plaza are coated in 70kg of pure gold.

Thanks
I feel bad for the Fiat car owner whose logo was stolen. I can relate to this. Someone peeled of my 'Zen' logo from my Maruti Zen in 2002. I had a hard time finding a new one.
