One Liner

While driving back to Delhi on a recent trip to Jaipur, read this one liner written behind a truck

बुरी नज़र वाले पाकिस्तान चला जा 

Although we all must have read more funnier (or strange) ones behind trucks but this was one was unique for me. Haven't read something like this till now - why the hell are we getting our neighbors into this. They have their own set of problems, so let them be alone. :)

Sometimes, I do think that people should do research on some of the things which are unexplained till now. One of them is the 'Origin and History of One Liners written behind Trucks'. I also wonder whether such a thing happens only in India or is this a phenomenon in other countries as well.

good observation.

I am sure there would be folks who have done some research on slogans on the back of trucks.

I think in spirit they are the same as the Bumper Stickers in the west. Btw, there is one I remember from a trip when we were reading such messages at the back of trucks to stay awake-

"Latak mat, patak dungi"

They for sure add some humor to the dreary long drives.
