The graphic given below instructs people on how to use a lift. It explains which buttons needs to be pressed (the second button with the arrow pointing downwards is not in the picture). I guess this is because at times people are not sure which button to press! For example if they are on the 10th floor and want to go down to the ground floor but the lift is on the ground floor, they feel that they need to press the up arrow as they want to “call” the lift up, even if they actually want to go down! Confusing? Sure, for those unused to lifts!
This second one was taken in Agra at a tourist spot. But yeah, there was another place where water was available!
This one, which I have published on my blog earlier in another context, was taken on a Goa beach. Couldn’t imagine how people provided “professional” services in such a small shack!
This photograph was taken on a Mumbai-Pune expressway. I found it funny, because why should there be a sign telling us to obey the traffic rules?? That’s a given isn’t it!
When it comes to faulty English, these signs are a dime a dozen in India. Here is one taken on a country road.
This one was taken in Chennai city. Wasn’t sure what it meant.
At times just having an English name gives some sort of prestige to a shady shop. This one was taken in Agra.
