That is not exactly the yellow. It's light green (Parrot Green to be precise) in color.

Such sticky pads don't come in dark colors normally. They are mostly available in bright colors so that these are easily visible to others.

Not exactly a sign, or on a wall, but a backfiring advertising stunt. BMW paid to have the cold front that is sweeping Europe called "Cooper." So far, it has killed over a hundred people.

One truck made me "mental" and another truck must be having a very short life, to run only 40 km.

And there is a shop that prints "pomplates"

Saw this at the entry point of a gurudwara in Ulhasnagar.
As usual our habits die hard,sign says keep your shoes away from this place and we find them just below the request board.

Saw this silly mistake by our so called milestone painters and distance sign boards. Found this photo in our very own Nano in my Life Thread. It reads a difference of one kilometer at very same spot .

I don't see any anomaly -- the board says it's 3 km to the Forest Rest House, 4 km to the town.

edit Ah, sorry, didn't see the milestone down there

They must be sick of listening to customers playing/trying to play these songs.
