Worth a Thousand Words
A picture, it is said, is worth a thousand words.
In the past few months, I have taken a few which, I’ll say, left me totally speechless.
#7 Somewhere in Rajasthan, left turn’s not free, they say..
#6 This one was at the entrance to a mall in Jaipur. Firearm not allowed.! Sounded like something straight out of the good ol’ West.
#5 This one’s all about having something to offer at various price points… Car with body colored side-view mirrors, car without body colored side-view mirrors; juice from a mixer, juice from a juicer… take your pick! Reminds me, I’ve even seen one on a menu card at some shady restaurant, Chicken with bone, Chicken without bone. All us well-fed, comfortable living, taking-everything-for-granted city folk don’t know much about all the limitless possibilities offered in smaller towns. This one was at a nice joint on the outskirts of Mangalore.
#4 The world as we know it…
#3 In a shopping complex in Pune. Whoever thought of this, obviously, does not think too much.
#2 This one was in some small town on the outskirts of Pune. The residents must live in fear.
#1 This one takes the cake and the bakery with it. They say even the Almighty can’t understand women. At least these folks are giving it a shot.
Ok… Apologizes everyone. You know how life is, right? Just when you think you’ve seen it all, something better, or worse, hits you in the face. Well, I just found our new #1. Its a restaurant I had the fortune of visiting on the outskirts of Pune, a couple of days ago. The menu card had some very interesting dishes to offer.
(guess the chicken is a resident of the place, hence the apt ‘lastname’. Its funny how I’d cross this place every other day and wonder how the food might be, considering the fancy cars and huge waiting outside. Now I wonder if the crowd was only to check out the menu 😉 And if you thought that’s all they had on the menu, you aint seen nothing yet)
The winner (picture from the same menu) is……
