Bad Smoke?

ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಹೊಗೆಯನ್ನು ತಡೆಯೋಣ
I did not know that there is something like "Good smoke" that they are saying that we should stop bad smoke!

ಕೆಲವರಿಗೆ ತಮ್ಮ ಆಟೋ ರಥ ಆದ್ರೆ ಇನ್ನು ಕೆಲವರಿಗೆ ಅದು "ಚಿಕ್ಕ ಜಟಕ"!

Gowdas galore!

I see so many "gowdru" slogans on vehicles, that I can start a separate "Gowdru Gaadi Slogans" blog :)

The 100th Post

ಅಪ್ಪ ಅಮ್ಮ First
Figher Next

When I first read this, I thought that it was "Fighter" with a T missing (many people whom I showed it to guessed the same way!) But what does a "Fighter Next" mean anyway? Any why would a cab driver talk about "Fighter"? It must be something else.

Then I wore my cab driver hat and wondered what they would compare with parents. Must be a girl. And then it hit me. "Figher" means "Figure", a street slang for a beautiful girl. Go figher! :)

P.S: When I started this blog, I did not know whether there were 100 slogans in Bangalore (that too in the limited routes I travel) or whether I would have the energy to continue for so long. But I am very happy to be posting my 100th post now!

Sab Ka Malik...

Sab Ka Maalik Ek Hai
Considering that it is a Government of India vehcile, are they implying that the "Ek Malik" is "GoI"?

This reminds me of a Sunil Pal joke, where he says - "Sab ka maalik ek nahin, do hain. Gautam Adhikari aur Markand Adhikari" :)

ನೋವಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಪಡೆದವರ್ಯಾರು 
ಮುಳ್ಳಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಗುಲಾಬಿ ಬೆಳೆದವರ್ಯಾರು

I finally managed to capture the ಏನೀಗ? slogan from Vedu's vehicle that I had mentioned earlier.

Caution: Heart Ahead!

Don't break my heart!
The "dagger" is perhaps the most common motif seen on autos! You can find every other auto driver who has experienced a "lavv disappayint".

Thuttaa - Muttaa

ಮುತ್ತು ಕೊಡುವಳು ಬಂದಾಗ
ತುತ್ತು ಕೊಟ್ಟವಳ ಮರಿಬೇಡ
A very oft repeated line in the "Mom vs Wife" domain.

By the way, what caught my attention more than the slogan, was the circle around Ganapathi. It is as if you are seeing Him from a sharp shooter's perspective :)
