Quote Road: 10 Quips that Ease the Pain

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on August 26, 2012

When I travel, I love doing so by public road transport. Buses, shared cabs, over packed three-wheelers and barely existent roads extend friendship requests to my arse. The latter responds in kind with a quick acceptance, knowing very well that its health status is going to end up becoming complicated very soon.

Traveling on Indian roads is an extreme adventure. When the chicken crossed the road, it wasn’t in India for sure. Yet, it is a feast for the eyes. View from the passenger seat of a bus lets you make the most of a fleeting moment. It allows you to closely experience the hustle bustle of the places you pass on your way to your destination. And sometimes, you come across one-liners on road signs or car windows that remind you: You made the right choice!

Here are the Top Ten quips I have come across on my recent back breaking affairs with the road:

10) Outside a Paramilitary Training Camp: The more we sweat in peace,the less we bleed in war

On a Car Window:

9) Behind Every Fortune is a Crime!!!

8) Poverty is often a by-product of Wealth

Road signs:

7) Live your today, drive for your tomorrow

6) Safety on road is safe tea at home

5) Reach Home in Peace…not in Pieces

4) This is a Highway; not a Runway

3) Home is where you hang your Hat

2) Earth is borrowed from our children, not inherited from our ancestors

And my favorite,

1) Love thy neighbor, but not while driving 🙂

      most of these road signs were spotted during my travels in North East India. The highway authority there has a sense of humor 🙂 Thanks for liking 🙂
