Wish I remembered enough of college calculus to actually work it out. But since we have Google, the answer's apparently the first 10-digits of the Pi constant - 3141592653...



Must have been very mentally satisfying to those who actually worked it out.

IDBI Bank BAAZIGAR contest brochure was prepared in such a hurry that they forgot to change the header of the web page. It still shows HDFC bank .

This equates to the number PI (3.14159265358979323846...). I came across this long time back and one of my friends solved it.

Shanti Sagara Lake viewpoint situated in Channagiri Taluk of Davanagere district has these placards hanging on two small trees.

A straightforward statement

A rhetorical one

Found this on installation manual of Hertz Tweeters.

Thankfully, the Tweeters are not impotent. , although I'm unable to understand the last line.

Image reads: "My car speed is locked at 80kmph because of my over speed."

Apologies for the blurry image.

Here are some signs that I came across in the recent past.


I tried to understand what this traffic signboard was meant to convey. At the least, they could have got the directions correct, in the order of left to right. I am still wondering what a "sheet" belt would do.

One is expected to follow instructions to the "t". But then, what if the "t" is missing?

This seems quite some service. It is not uncommon that buildings that house multinational business houses have such signs.

When the message is conveyed, who is really bothered about the spelling.

This sign was at an upmarket store. It surprised me that this went unnoticed by those in charge of the store.

When Gujjus transliterate:

Captured this at the Marine National Park, Jamnagar, Gujarat during my recent drive!
