Correct!
That is the way we Bengalis pronounce St. Xavier's

Sorry to spoil the fun. The Tata Motors Subsidiary was meant to go with the Concorde Motors sticker that you can find at the top. The Focuz sticker was pasted at the wrong place.

OT: Noticed your signature. Hilarious. The first part, that is. Food is not cheap anymore

Nothing extraordinary Friend; every quirky sign has an explanation.

Come to think of it, how many percentage of one's income do one spend for food. I am not talking about star rated menu here, but common food.
Compared with any other consumable items food is definitely cheap. As I have posted elsewhere in the forum, 3 idlis and 1 vada is available at small railway station canteens even today. Another point is that never ever waste food, instead consume it.
Take a look here. http://siteresources.worldbank.org/E...anuary2012.htm

Inter here means Class 12th. It what my grand parents used to say, when I was appearing for my 12th exams. Some old world saying, like xerox instead of copy.

Inter is a short form of Intermediate which is the phase between 10th class and graduation. I have seen this term in many places including the new joinee forms in certain corporate companies.

I m an old guy though

Thats true isnt it? If you love driving, then you have to leave driving an Indica!! (no offence to Indica owners, but I was driving my Dad's Indica for nearly 3 years )

Never driven an Indica, so no comment . For the cabbie though, "Drive To Live" would have been more appropriate!
