Two religions. Two campaigns for reading their religious books.

Read Bible.
I am coming soon.

Read Quran.
While you can.

Multi Slogans

ಸಾಲ ಮಾಡೋದೇನೋ ಓಕೆ
ಆದರೆ ತೀರ್ಸೋಕಾಗದೆ ಸಾಯ್ತಾರಲ್ಲ ಯಾಕೆ?
This template became very popular after Uppi did it in the UB ad - "Yella okay, cool drink yaake?"

Another slogan on the same auto:
ಎಲ್ಲರನ್ನೂ ಪ್ರೀತಿಸು
ಒಬ್ಬರನ್ನೂ ಮೋಹಿಸು

Vishnuvardhan and Ambareesh, very good friends in real life, played over-the-top best friends in this remake of some horrendous village based Tamil melodrama. The handlebar mustache in any movie, to me, meant "avoid the movie with extreme prejudice". It had a very popular song called "Kuchuku" which I had mentioned here.

Have you seen a more graphic representation of "You took my heart away"?

Oh God

ದೇವರು ಗರ್ವಿಷ್ಟರನ್ನು
ದೀನರನ್ನಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಬಲ್ಲ

No girls no cry

No Girls
No Love
No Cry

This reminded of that wonderful Bob Marley song - "No Woman, No Cry".

Old English

My presence shell go with thee.

I was really surprised to see an Old English style sentence on an auto (unless it is taken verbatim from Bible or something like that) I was equally surprised that a person using a word like "thee" wrote "shell" instead of "shall"!

Observe the symbol on the right hand side - it represents "female".
This reminded me of B.R.S.'s PU tuition classes where he used to explain - "the circle and arrow represents 'male', symbolic of the hunting; the circle and plus symbol represents 'female', symbolic of the mirror"

77 Hills

Forget the spellings, this is what he intends to say:
ಸೋಲದ ಹುಡುಗ 
ಸೋಲಿಸುವ ಹುಡುಗಿ 

And the abstract art work would have made Dali proud.

In case you are wondering what the "77 Hills" is, it is about Malai Mahadeshwara Hills.
