A colleague's contribution.

Whoever avails of these services, please make sure you get the correct Satifiket.

PS: The Bhpian in me is happy because (along with Pan Card) Driving Licence is spelt right.

Clicked inside a Tempo Traveller.

What made it funnier was the fact that a friend whose name begins with SOM was sitting under the sign .

Savati in Kannada is the same as Soutan in Hindi. A loose English translation could be fellow wife, meaning the other wife of a woman's husband.

Vasati on the other hand stands for accommodation.

The board claims to offer food and Savati instead of Vasati in the hotel.

Taking it on face value will leave many a visitor utterly disappointed .

A lot of original flavour will surely be lost in translation. But for those who can't read Kannada, here's the gist.

LHS: A poor man has no real choice in life.
RHS: Modi has left no real choices for the rich man.

Saw this at multiple locations on Haralur road Bangalore.

Was unable to make out what 'Dog Walking / Both' meant. Would it mean walking both dog and the owner ?

Later made out that it was a typo, what they intended was 'Bath'.

While the P might have slipped accidentally, look at where it has landed - on the K Nee . The gentleman tasked with getting the board ready seems to be ignorant of how knee is pronounced.

Both probably meant whatever two things dog does while walking

DIRECTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPEED. TOO MANY PEOPLE GO NOWHERE REAL FAST.

And he has got those dark tints, so that when HE goes REAL FAST, you dont get to see WHO has got no DIRECTION.
Seen today on Mount Road, near LIC.
