Both the trucks had very similar design. And both of them have honking as their theme. One says ‘Blow Horn’ and the other Horn Please.
On the first truck it says ‘Hari Om‘ (a religious Hindu chanting) and then maa ka ashirvad (mother’s blessings). Between the wheels there is a small plate says ladli (pet).
Use Dipper at Night!
This one says ‘use dipper at night,’ though I don’t know why. Another peculiar Indian driving habit is to drive on full beam at night. The roads that are pitch dark I can understand the need of the full beam but then we hardly dip it even on well lit roads. The lower plate on this one says ‘buri nazar wale tera muh kala!’ A difficult phrase for me to translate. I had a look at google and it has been translated as ‘Back off or smoke in your face.’
Now that I am forced to spend so much more time on the road what to do but to write about trucks. Let us see when I get bored out of it.
