There is no two ways about it (pun unintended). Translation seems to be an Achilles Heel for our authorities. Kannada daily Vijaya Karnataka found this displayed on the Cunningham Road in Bengaluru. Keeping linguistic matters aside, one wonders as to when did the Bengaluru Traffic Police change the meaning of free left turn signage to One Way.

Looking at all the vehicles going straight (One green BMTC Bus is very evidently going straight), I read this as " Taking left is one (Of the ) ways to go from this point

In fact, kannada meaning of "Ondu reethiyalli" means, the same meaning (One of the ways)

Even Google translate does a better job and returns : ಏಕಮುಖ ಸಂಚಾರ. Maybe they meant after turning left it will be ಒಂದು ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ one way

Maybe they meant : ಒಂದು ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಎಡಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗಬಹುದು (In a way you can turn left)

Of the umpteen forwards one receives on WhatsApp day in and day out, very few manage to make an impression. The following is one such. (Please ignore the misplaced apostrophe and look at the message alone.)

Clearly the "Baby S-Class" tag was taken a bit too seriously here

Not sure about your designs, Mr. Sam, but your spellings certainly have a 'sigh' in them!

Would it be known that "Desighner" is not the person's surname, which was probably used as the name of a company?

I am aware of surnames such as "Darukhanawala", "Screwala" etc. They also say that proper nouns may be spelt in any manner.

There are no words to be seen in this picture, but the lone tree is indeed a sign of things gone terribly wrong.

This came as a WhatsApp forward from a learned friend. Not sure of the location nor can I vouch for its authenticity. But if true, teenaged Bhpians should perhaps have a look at this offer before proceeding with their college admissions!

(The bike offered being a CT 100 and the fact that most of our young turks on the forum are car aficionados and not bikers makes the offer less alluring though .)

Rightfully so.

Prefect+Perfectionist=Prefectionist


I guess that the person who gifted this must be a keen observer of the forum (rules).

Desighner - is probably "Sam's" Last Name, wherein Sam being his First name. It is a tamil name and can be easily mistaken as a typo for "designer" .

What were they drinking when they printed this label? Certainly not a coke, I presume!

Would be beholden to anyone who can help me decipher the message.
