Devdas


The movie Mungaru MaLe, despite being a very ordinary film, went on to become one of the biggest blockbusters of recent times in Kannada film industry. It gave Ganesh and Pooja Gandhi big star status. And to a certain rabbit called "Devadasa". You can clearly see how Hugh Hefner's beloved bunny motif has been hijacked by Devadasa.

Alankaara - Ahankaara


Perhaps the most popular anti-girl slogan seen on autos nowadays.
ಹಾರೋ ಹಕ್ಕಿಗೆ ಅಲಂಕಾರ
ಪ್ರೀತ್ಸೋ ಹುಡುಗಿಗೆ ದುರಹಂಕಾರ

There is absolutely no correlation between a flying bird and a loving girl, but rhyme more often than not wins over reason. Just like that mindbogglingly stupid slogan on buses and autos
ಹೊಗೆ ರಹಿತ ವಾಹನ
ಸುಖೀ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಜೀವನ

Aaarghhh!!!

Mr. Kaala Bhairava


This is the first photo of an auto slogan I clicked. So it deserves to be on the first post.

Its my strong belief that most auto drivers have self heroic images. Many of them refer to themselves in plural (the royal plural - as in "naavu yen gotta"....)

Here is one Mr. Kala Bhairava...his auto is not just an auto...its a theru. So dont forget to salute!
