Meaning Matters. Part – II

This snap came via email from my brother. On a busy day, this provided relief. Brought back the smile to my lip and lifted some load off the heart. So, for this post, i am riding on someone else’s photograph !

Do take the time to read the banner. Such banners are marketing tools that you would find on nomadic tents, whose occupants peddle in herbal remedies. Claiming solutions to problems ranging from ‘Gas Trick‘ to ‘urine unable to come‘ to ‘all types of secret diseases‘ !!

As discussed earlier, the message must reach the receiver of the communication. And here, the message sure does. If the message didn’t, it perhaps is ‘because you are discourage‘ ! Or perhaps ‘stones are stored in your kidney‘ !

By the way, you get medicines on credit. If only you are in Government Service ! No wonder !! No wonder at all !!!!!


Clicked from my phone Mumbai.
Seen everyday. Never frequented.

Here is a shop that i pass by quiet often. Its name board has been of intrigue ! It gets the message out too. In its own free spirited manner !

Yes Boss. We are like this only !

    These secret diseases of which they speak, are they only talking about the secret diseases in India, or can they help what ails the U.S.?

    I am also interested in gas tricks.

    I don’t think even the compilers of the very venerable Oxford English Dictionary would be able to translate that to a more comprehensible language. I would love to see eminent personalities like W. Shakespeare, G B Shaw and others make sense of that board.


  3. “Are not working one with your body..” ….

    isnt that the truth ?

  4. when I was a kid, there was a shop directly behind what was the Pallavaram bus stand just before the airport stop
