Ever spotted misspellings in the sign-boards of Chennai?
A random tag search for “Chennai” on Flickr produced the image seen above.
Couple of other locations where misspellings are prominent:
(1) The Aavin Store outside T Nagar Bus Terminus: It reads Aavin Milk Parler.
(2) A store right opposite to the soon-to-come PVR Complex in Aminjikarai/Nelson Manickam Road: It reads Verities Rice. (Can be seen every afternoon till three in the evening)
“Puncher”, though, has the credit that it can be commonly spotted anywhere at the crossing of two streets.
As the Flickr user claims, misspellings are not unique to Chennai alone. Atleast that’s not what this post is meant to suggest. The oddities ought to be acknowledged too.
