For all those micro-managers out there.. The placement below the signal stalk is excellent.

One of the big lessons that I learned from my Indian-origin, grew-up-in-Malaysia, girl friend in London was that horn is a verb. On and Off are also verbs.

So yes... Do Not Horn!

The curious case where 'pass', implying discharge from the body, lost out to 'pass', conveying a successful completion, somewhere along translation!

A rough literal translation would be, " Here, urine did not graduate."

Pic source- whatsapp forward.

How about as in "please pass the curry bowl". So you may pee but don't pass it around. :-)

Haldiram got into new buisness, not sure if India is the right market for this. This is from Reliance Mart, Pune.
