This one is actually quite common. After is obvious, but why Before?

A dry surface is more sticky. In Indian toilets it's advisable to always wet the surface before proceeding. May be the same thought was carried to urinals.

Hmmm... More than I ever wanted to know!

There's a kind of a logic to that, thanks

Spotted a black Santro belonging to 'Metro Motor Traning School', based in Galleria, Hiranandani, Powai.

On the rear, it read "Keep 30 FIT Distance"

Boss,wet or dry comes later but it has become a ritual to wet the surface before starting any of the two jobs, of shorter and slightly longer durations.
I have observed this tendency as a must amongst us, it gives satisfaction and confidence of hygiene.
I think they may be feeling uncomfortable and unsatisfied using chemical toilets found in the aircrafts without a flush tank and free flowing WATER to clean the surface after the job.

Aircraft toilets are just plain frightening!

Wet surface before proceeding...

Actually, it sounds like an odd sort of road sign!

Forget lighter or match box, even a small agarbatti will do the job. The lock seems to be a 8 lever Navtal.

They've named it 'Dragan' Train now?? I have fond memories of this train when I was a kid, but I don't think it was ever called Dragan/Dragon train at all.

Actually, it's been a while since I went to Bal Bhavan. It was one of my favourite places to go for an outing when I was a kid.

Ha haha !
This is awesome, just glad its not a tata.
We've heard how a Tata dealer reacted when one owner did something like this with his sumo, was it?
Someone should verify this, then we can share it, perhaps?
