Funny Things - "I'm not sure what to say about this" Edition

OK, so this is something that is very common... it's something that I see almost every day... You see, people here LOVE Bollywood. They love the movies, they love the actors, they love the actresses, they REALLY love the songs, they love the dancing... well, you get the picture. Anyway, a large number of rickshaw drivers (maybe even a majority of them) have pictures of Bollywood stars stuck on their rear-view mirrors. They are usually cut out into a heart shape...
If you were a guy in America and had a heart cut-out of Brad Pitt or something on your rear-view mirror, your guy friends would totally make fun of you!....
.... But if they lived here, they would totally show you their Tom Cruise :)
hahaha! it totally cracks me up!!

that IS hilarious. do men hold hands there (fingers interlocked) as a gesture of friendship like they do in UAE too?

I like bollywood too, I can't say I blame them. :)

I just saw your twitter post about the neighbors who don't go to bed till late. Our neighbors here at seminary from Asia have that same mentality. Unfortunately we live right next to the playground. It is really loud in the spring and summer.

haha! I love that you caught that on camera, and the faces they are making are too funny.

Carie said...

Arnold and Joy said...

Do they have papparazi?

Carrie said...

That is way to funny! The first two are these real "buff" men and the last one has this look as if he's looking at the picture!

I have to ask - do people ever ask you why are you taking their picture or do you just do it in secret...

SouthAsiaRocks said...

haha! They never ask why. I just take their pics :) haha! Sometimes I try to do it secretly (just so I get a candid pic and don't draw too much attention :)) but I usually just take them - they usually like having their pic made :)

oh yeah, and ErinG - they do the hand holding thing here too... the men hold hands all the time! but the women don't do it as much.
