Indian Signs

Recommended Posts

One of the joys of visiting India is the full onslaught on the senses - the wild colours, the non stop horns, the crowds - and of course the MAD painted signs

The unique spelling, the awkward grammar and the fact some are just plain indecipherable.

Here is a collection of funny signs - well I think they are funny - there is preponderance of 'Toilet' signs - as we all know there is always an eternal struggle to find an acceptable clean toilet - that search usually goes out the window if you are struck down with Delhi Belly and then anyone - no matter how basic - will do !

SGPC gobbledegook signs - what are they on about ?
