Jai Maharashtra

August 21, 2008

I recently visited Mumbai after a very long time. I noticed that almost all shops had their names written in Devnagri script along with the name being written in English.

Seems like some sort of a dictat being followed by shop keepers. I am not sure if there is a law that requires them to do this.

Of course, no harm in this. Except it can get rather funny and obscene if not spelt correctly in Devnagri. Poor Woodland… or is it Woodlund :-).
