Hmm, not in the south. The term "matric pass" is not really used in the south.

In that sign, not only Biometric is misspelled, the term Biometric Computers makes no sense.

Tailor-made Holiday for T-BHPers!

Who doesn't fancy getting their hands on the wheel of some huge, high-power heavy goods vehicle on the Kerala Forest Roads, while the family enjoys watching the falls and the animals?

But, sadly, I'm afraid you're more likely to need walking boots than driving gloves.

Oh, and yes, that bottom line does say, "We Provide Intelligent Service."

The text in Kannada on the top has no gaffes whatsoever - they are regularly used proverbs which generally lose context on translation, more so when transliterated!

All he is trying to say is than a man with no self-control is no different than a unleashed freewheeling donkey
