Puneri Patya

by Ashish

Most of you must have already, but for those of you that have not – you can do worse than go have a look see here.

Some truly classic ones.

And on a somewhat tangential note, why do people in Pune insist on putting up name-plates in Marathi (which is perfectly fine), but with English content?

For example – say there’s a Puneri who goes by the name of Rahul Govind Thatte.

A nameplate that says R.G. Thatte in English is fine.

Ra. Go. Thatte (written as as shown, but in Devnagari) is fine.

But I do not get Aar. Jee. Thattee (again, in Devnagari).

Why?
