A deliberate attempt to seek the attention of drivers to control the speed by a spelling mistake.

Actually, they want to convey is...

"Our Dream is to Touch the Sky"

But its psychological illusion which attracts your attention when you see something else but read it correct what they mean to say

That would have the wrong effect on me. It would grab my attention and have me thinking about the sign rather than the road!

This reminds of the Tamil comedian, Goundamani's "touching touching" episode with co-acot "kovai sarala". I think the movie is "viralukkuaetha veekkam".
BTW, tucked under the highlight is "Duplecat driveing"

This one is doing rounds on social media.

"ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಮೂತ್ರ ತೇರ್ಗಡೆಹೊಂದಿಲ್ಲ" translated to English is "Urine has not cleared (passed) the exams here".

In fact Google translate does a better, albeit wrong translation : "ಮೂತ್ರವನ್ನು ಹಾದುಹೋಗಬೇಡಿ" (Do not cross the urine)

Default When banks take up Baking as part time job...

Well, honestly I did not expect a bank of the scale of HDFC bank to have ventured into 'Personal Baking' services.

This is what my google search today led me into.....

Probably got distracted by the sign (not an actual accident).

Good for a laugh.

But they should, at least, have photoshopped insome damage to the grass!

Came across something interesting but meaningful post. This is at one of the tyre sellers shop in Chinchwad, Pune.

I wonder what they are "guarding", Jaywalkers? Road rule breakers? Stray animals?


In any case, the number of such barricades have been on the increase. I personally feel that this is a better option to speed breakers since there is sufficient warning ahead, with flashing warning lights, that are visible during the day as well.

Someone saw your post (if it wasn't a photo-shopped forward)?

NEET +2 results? Some creative poster making skills & some self-confidence goes a long way.
