You Get to See what I Get to See!

Truck quotes is what I see most of these days when I travel, so that is what I end up sharing.

Truck Art, Gurgaon, India

This truck caught my eye because of the quote in Hindi saying, “Dekh Thakur ke That.” I can once again try and kill it in translation. Would it come off as, “See the Important Man and his excesses?” Sounds like perfect case of ‘lost in translation.’

This one again features because of the quote in Hindi, “Dhan chaho tou dan karo.” Would mean if you wish to get rich give away in charity first.
PS. We always get blow horn for sure.

  3. One quote I read once:Latakle to gele betaAnd I asked a friend about the same. He said the truck owner is trying to explain in short with warning that if you travel while hanging self at the back of the truck, chances are you are gone.Good quote it was, isn't it.

  6. The truck bumper messages are usually good to read. But I don't like the things people sometimes write on the bumpers of their bikes – somebody's gift (put mom/dad/brother,etc in place of somebody)Don't kiss me… and so on.Lame!Digressing a little bit, have you ever seen somebody put the picture of two guys instead of the registration number – I have! 🙂
