Well, the other day I remember discussing with Marc somewhere as to how the experience of obtaining a Driving Licence can be a whole lot worse than obtaining a Passport. Right now I am so confused and dizzy (thanks to the application), that I ask of the readers to “bare” with me if there are any errors at all in the post.
Here is (ample ample) proof. English language murdered and massacred and on an Official Government of India form. Talk about revenge. 🙂
- Signature of Thumb Impression
Ever thought about that ? You thumb impression can have a signature now. Completely digital too. Haven’t you heard of digital signatures ?
- Yes I Enclose. And… ?
#17 on the form says “I enclose three copies of my recent photograph (passport size photograph)” followed by a line where you are supposed to write something. What ? Yes, I do. ? Or do they expect us to write stuff like “This photograph was taken when I was in my 2nd year B.E. I used to play sports back then. That should explain the tan.”
- Mot less than
Em En O Pee. How does it matter ? It’s all the same anyway. Ever seen how MIT spells Massachusetts anyway ? With a V. And here we are criticizing our poor Govt. officials.
- Vehical fitred
Vehical is like logical. We don’t say Logicel now do we ? And it’s supposed to be fitted with some red thing of some sort. A Half lime smeared in blood perhaps ?
- Steering Whell
Whell, what can I say ?
- Au ourside, reaeily, ordinery, disbility
Au ourside ? Wow, we have the Gold on our side now. How boring an outside would be ? Who wants an outside when you have gold on your side ?
But then how can you be suffering from muscular power ? Isn’t that like awesome ? Having muscular power ? It’s like saying Superman suffers from superpowers. Indeed he does.
Once you are involved with a distillery, its quite ordinary to spell ordinary as ordinery. Big deal.
Disbility is like Invisibility. Another superpower.
- Here declare, there in are true
(shall upload soon)
Amplity. Ok, I am clueless on this one. (Except it probably should have been amplify.)
- Maybe required to given further
Yeah. That’s right. Maybe required to given further details. Not give. Given.
- Spectacle, less of member
That these guys can even read and write English is a spectacle.
Less of a member ? This guy sure lost his member. Dismembered.
Just an ordinery spelling mistake. Nothing to it really.
Adriver ? Is it like screwdriver or something ?
- An details
Now this could be in detail or and details. It’s your guess.
Affax!! Meaning you can also do it over fax. Normally it has to be affixed in person.
- A manner of his signature….???
I leave this for people to comment.
P.S: Some of the images didn’t come out so well. But you can’t really complain. I used a camera, not a scanner. Now,there were (or surely must have been) more of this funny stuff on the form, but then it was quite tiring to get even these many.I hope it was enough to keep you entertained and keep the British away and any idea they might have of invading India again. Hurray to Indian Culture. 😀
