This picture was taken at the hotel where we had stopped for lunch during our road trip few years ago.
Seems like a mistaken identify for the groom

Found these two gems on the register of the authorized service centre I take my car to...

SS-T, the last one must be somewhere in Kerala. There are people whose surname is Potty (note that -tt- is pronounced as the 'tt' in attenuate, or 't' in eatery, and not as in potty). So, it's ok to visit that hotel

For non-mallus, it's definitely laughing stock at first sight

Sure the bride is going feel like ALICE IN WONDERLAND soon.


EDIT: Just noticed the date. She is already there for 2 years.

If a town can be called Alice, then why not a guy? Might even be better than Sue.

and



because it's just taken my poor wife about five minutes to get it into my head that they meant alias!

Saw this sign in the parking area of an office complex. People have the tendency to cut short spellings but this is just the opposite! The extra 'L' changes the complete meaning!!

In hindi we have two states, moving and standing. the usage is perfectly acceptable (if not grammatically perfect).
