It is original Coke.

To celebrate this refreshing new take on relationships, Coca-Cola created the ‘Share A Coke’ campaign in India. In keeping with the campaign’s principal idea ‘Har Rishta Bola, Mere Naam Ki Coca-Cola,’ Coke cans and bottles are now available with 20 special relationships printed on them, including Bae, Bro, Dude, BFF, Dad, Mom, Daughter, etc. Each of these relationships comes with a descriptor. ‘Bro— Troublemaker. Merrymaker,’ ‘Grandad—Old School. Yet Cool,’ ‘Grandma—Scolds me. Spoils Me.’ Since these relationships are special, the idea of the campaign is to look at them in a whole new way, and celebrate their uniqueness.

Could not stop myself from posting this. Look at the spelling of puncture!!
Must have been trying to relate it to pump and puncture!

Although they might appear funny, these words reflect the pain and frustration of the villagers - feelings that a lot of us can identify with.

Pits (reference to potholes) have been dug on this road to bury Gram Panchayat members. Kindly drive carefully.

PS: He who removes this banner before the road is repaired, is akin to a dog.

A place that I go to occasionally has this message prominently displayed in its dining hall. The values written in red are changed daily based on the quantity of edible waste generated.

We have this in our office cafeteria exactly at the place where we dispose the plates and cutlery after eating. Unfortunately the numbers are much higher than what we would like to see.

Indeed. In one of offices of my previous organisation they had this information displayed in the cafeteria. Humbling it was, the sheer amount of wastage.

A sign I saw at a laundry shop close to where I stay.

The other sign they had on their door read "Behind every woman is a basket of laundry".

When you want your rear passengers to know you running on cleaner and cheaper fuel this is how you stick you CNG sticker.

This is the parking ticket from the Railway station.
Love that huge word in the 1st line. "sumendedned'. This distracts you from all the other errors in the ticket!
