Hundred percent India!


Here's an interesting notice seen at numerous places in Pune. Translated into English, it would mean - Courses for Spoken English with 100% guarantee. In the event of failure, full money back guarantee ! So what exactly does 100% mean? Typical of India, where we live happily with ambiguity in every aspect of life. Often 100% doesn't really mean "truly 100%" in India. But we understand the sentiment behind the statement and let it pass.

Hi Pushkaraj,

Good to see interesting posts on your blog.
We are planning to have Pune Bloggers meet in the 2nd Week of Oct 08.
Let me know if you are interested to be a part of it.

Thanks Bhavya! I would surely like to be there for the meeting, provided I am in town. I travel quite a bit for work, so can't commit '100%' :-)
Is there some link where I can get information about the Pune Bloggers meets?

I liked this one about the Indian emphasis on assurance,"100% guarantee". Would track your blog! Best.
