Actually, I think it is right. Wood is pronounced more like "ood" than "vood". In fact, "W" is just that - double U. So the right pronunciation would be "uuood". But this article indicates that Indians don't distinguish between "V" and "W" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_English

There seems to be an outline of a door frame on that wall, looks like it was closed later. So, they need a sign like "Exit - In case of emergency, break wall"

Seen at Big Bazar; by the looks of it anything fallen on the ground gets 10% off on the bill

Since it's at BIAL, is there some Magic School like Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in India to which this acts as an entry door to the runway where the magical flight takes off? (Remember Platform 9 and 3/4s in Harry Potter Movies)

It's unfortunate that the trend hasn't improved. Why stick to trains when there are air planes. I wonder...

Makes Sense, because I don't want to be served with powder tea when asked for Team

This must go along with Non-veg Mutton, Vegetarian Gobi, Cold Ice Cream, Sweet Gulab Jamoon etc..
