Significance of Nandi in Hinduism

Nandi, the bull is what Lord Shiva uses for transport. In Hinduism, Gods are often depicted with their favourite animals, whether cows, elephants, snakes, turtles or even rats! Used either as pets or vehicles. This made animals sacred for many centuries and this is what helped preserve our wildlife although now the influences of the West has changed us to some extent.

Won the South Korean currency

The Won (₩) or KRW is the currency of South Korea. One won is 100 jeon, which is the monetary sub-unit. The North Korean Won is different and not pictured here.

The coins lying on top of the notes are Won coins. 1000 Wons is actually small change because today 1000 wons will not even buy 1 dollar, the rate today being 1027 Wons for 1 USD.

Though shown here, 10 Won coins have been demonetized in South Korea years ago. The photographs are of 1000 Won currency notes and some 10, 100, and 50 Won coins.

Funny Car Signs in India

A van carrying school kids and with a funny sign " School Kids on Boards" . The extra letter 's' being a typo!

Funny sign on van

" Wait for Side" which is seen on the back of this truck is actually a commonly used Indian English phrase. It's not in the dictionary, but easily understood by everyone in India. It means wait until you are given the signal to overtake.

This writing on the rear windscreen of a Nano was pretty weird! And not just because of the several spelling and grammar errors like 'Specious' instead of 'Spacious' and then is 'gate in' even a phrase?

Indian Supermarket Images

Indian Supermarkets are not less than any other supermarkets in the world although they may not be so many large ones. All these photographs are of the food section of the hypermarket.

Stocked shelves at a supermarket

Here is a photographs of a supermarket aisle with the workers arranging the goods on the shelves. The typical supermarket in an Indian urban centre employs scores of young people, mostly out of school or college. And it has become a great social hub as you often see the boys and girls more engrossed in themselves than in the customers! Working in an air-conditioned, clean environment, even if for long hours at a stretch is a dream come true for many of these youngsters. It has also created employment opportunities for the middle classes.
